    Thanks, shams.

    Yes, Ramesh; with power naps and breaks. From Abu Road to Mumbai [fully 4-laned], I did aggressive driving; from Mumbai to Bangalore, I restricted myself to sober driving, which reflected in the FE.

    Excellent FE figures Ravi Sir. Reminded me of driving Mumbai Goa via NH4 and giving me excellent figures in FE (14.8) fully loaded with AC on. Waiting for your detailed travelogue.

    Thanks a lot, zenwalker. But, the credit must go to my Linea! :)

    Thank you very much, bharathj85.

    IMO, if 90 kmph speed [actual] is maintained in the sixth gear [100 kmph on the odometer], maximum FE is achieved. Actually, I did aggressive driving from Abu Road to Mumbai, and then, the sober driving for the remaining part of the trip. Had I had done sober driving for the whole trip, the FE would have been much more! Many times, I got 16/17 kmpl for long trips. :)

    Thanks a ton, Krishna Prasad. Yeah, the travelogue will be out shortly.

    Sir, is it a typo error or is that your car really has 6th gear?:shocked I thought Linea always came with 5 speed transmission.

    Checked the data sheet of all linea models, all says 5 speed transmission. So hence the doubt :D

    Oops. I am yet to recover from the hangover caused by my marathon drive, it seems. :) Yes, it is in the fifth gear. Thanks, zenwalker, for pointing out the error.

    Car-Keeping My Linea!

    Today, I started the work of car-keeping of my Linea - just like house-keeping - comprising many parts like boot/checking fluids and battery, engine bay, interior, alloy wheels, exterior and waxing and polishing to get rid of the muck accumulated from different parts of India. biggrin.gif

    I spent about coupla hours to clean the boot, check the tools and check all oil/fluids and battery. My Linea consumed about 300 ml of Selenia K engine oil for 2,309 km. Although the coolant was at the maximum level, I added a few ml to bring to a few mm above the maximum level. I also topped up the windshield cleaning fluid to the brim. The battery was fine recording 12.4 V when the engine was off and 14.3 V when idling.
