    Re: T-Jet mileage-Unimpressed- Impressive figures pg 3 & 4

    I am still not convinced that Tjet gives good FE. I am barely getting 9.5 kmpl.
    if I don't get good FE after service. I will swtich to using another car in the family. I might just take this out during the weekend or something like that.

    While Fiat seems like a good car and a good company, they do not have adequte support infrastructure, knowledge or skills to provide adequate support in hyderabad. thats another point of concern.

    The first 100 KMS gave average of 6+. Later gave around 9, now i get consistently 11+ in the city. Car is yet to cross 1000 mark.

    I am sure, after service i will surely get around 15+ on highway and I am happy with this mileage :)

    Thanks

    Thanks for the words of confidence Vasu.
    I hope I get decent mielage. I calculated my fuel spend based on the ARAI figures displayed on FIAT website. Unless I see that mielage I won't be convinced. If I travel this way, I will be putting a dent in my budget (my fuel spend will increase by atleast 40% more)

    So keeping my fingers crossed for the MOT - moment of truth.

    I spent a lot of money on the car and I truly love a fiat. Its just that I am a little jittery with the whole experience (Sales, After Sales, lack of spares etc)... hope this wont allow me to build an opinion on the service experience.

    i dont think its related to a turbo or air filter. if you are driving @ 75 to 80kmph and suddenly acceleration stops its related to injectors/fuel pump/ the injection timing - something related to fuel circuit. check up of any error codes/ throttle related codes etc from the TASS.

    Had the issue with my previous car. One of the sparkplug caps had a crack and the plug was arcing with the body. It doesn't happen when the car was cold but only when it warms up. It could be either this or clogged fuel line.
