    Just a bit of correction, we are talking of FE (fuel efficiency) and not mileage as mentioned in thread title and posts.

    Mods kindly correct where needed.

    Sachin, I own T Jet emotion. I am attaching photos of my recent trip to Kolhapur. This trip was four people onboard with full ac. Hope this helps!

    General figures that I normally obtain on my 2011/12 TJet+:
    - Within city for a one way distance of 8-10 kms: 9 to 11 kmpl (9 usually being in hot Delhi weather and 11 in Delhi winters)
    - On highway: 12 to 14 kms

    The TJet is capable of giving more mileage but you need great self control on your right foot to attain such figures. Also, if the aim is to achieve such figures then you cannot enjoy the TJet

    Rightly mentioned by speedJet, the T-jet can give good FE if not pushed harder, if driven sedately.
    Throttle input is very important, therefore mentioned Cruise Control. Check patchyboy's video and thread on Cruise Control mod.
    It is a feature on newer Lineas though.

    If fuel efficiency is a major factor then might as well go for MJD options. Linea Classic plus or regular Linea MJD variant.

    never felt wave effect whatever it is, either windows rolled up or down.

    Correct two things, keep windows rolled up and find a decent gap to accelerate or decelerate out of their ways and maintain maximum distance. I know sometimes it can take a long time to achieve this esp. if 2-3 heavy vehicles are moving closely at highers speeds. Do remember that winds blowing can also add to this effect. But nothing to worry about unless there is a tornado. ;)

    The wave effect you refer to is simple science. When two vehicles run side by side close to each other, there is creation of partial vacuum in the space between the vehicles due to displacement of air in between them. As you know, vacuum tends to fill itself up causing surrounding air to rush inside & even vehicles to move towards (attract) each other. The attraction effect is more obvious when the vehicles cross in opposite direction. Another reason why we should maintain safe distance while crossing big vehicles. As per your higher fuel efficiency with AC on, just go through the fiat web site link on tips for increasing fuel efficiency.

    Actually due to the difference in air pressure between the space of car and truck and the other side of the car(where pressure is greater ) ,the car being lighter is pulled towards the truck.The truck also experiences the same force towards the car, but being very heavy the effect is not experienced.

    Not just the right foot, you also need to have great control over you emotions and especially ego :p
    Emotion : on seeing the empty at the signal!
    Ego : On seeing the nano overtaking you!
