    1.2 has max torque much earlier than other petrol cars. So one need to keep the rpm in the optimal range till it get the momentum. Just a possibility.
    If the pick up problem has started recently then contact TASS.

    We are using Britax First Class Plus for our 1year 4 months son since he was 10 months old. Extremely satisfied with the product. We have done several trips using this - Blr-Adoni, Blr-Mysore, Blr-Pune.

    First Class Plus can be used from 9 months to 4 years. It is categorized as group 1 car seat.

    Please refer the link - BRITAX Child Car Seats | Car Seats for Toddlers & Babies to decide the appropriate car seat category for your kid.

    Those are Nitrox tablets, not recommended for Diesel. Easiest way to kill Engine.

    I tried putting Cyclo Fuel Injector & Carb cleaner in my 2009 Punto. There was a difference in the pickup. But don't know about the mileage. Also the engine felt a lot smoother.

    But it is each to his own. The results may vary. I also saw a thread in myfiatworld in where a member had tried the Injector cleaner additive in his Palio Adventure & got good results.

    The diesel/ fuel filter that we change every 15000kms and which is very costly does its duty perfectly to protect the injectors from clogging. This is the reason Fiat has not mentioned injector cleaning.
    Besides the injectors have very critical components and even the filter of each projector is very costly.
    Still if there is a problem in injector TASS does open them and send to Bosch people who charge a bomb to clean them and if they change the filter then cost per injector is 4500rs.

    checked for the smell yesterday. Its definitely not present inside the car. Most likely from the exhaust. btw I searched for more details and there seem to be a whole lot of smelly diagnosis of car happening. Would like to share a few of them with you-

    thanks
