  2. Revving till 4k rpm?????thats too much...dont cross more than 2.5k atleast for a thousand kms...
    Mileage will be good dont worry about that,when i took delivery the indicator was set to lit/100 kms.

    And regarding mileage reset the trip meter and check on the highway...

    Congrats on your new car once again...get the probs solved asap..

    Congratulations.

    Reset both your tripmeters and start all readings afresh. The 6.5 figure will be indicating the time it spent at the dealership with countless stop starts and first-second gear ripping by the TASS Schumachers.

    Cheers.

    Thank you all, Just came back from Home town, involved a driving of around 70KMS highway,

    I forgot all those niggling issues I had , Just love the way punto dominates the road!! Brilliant

  6. You certainly are enjoying your ride,but please one advice,''be gentle''...As this is a new car let everything open up on its own...
    Avoid people like these,many people will provoke you with these lights,idiotic driving,but wait till a few thousand kms,cause afterwards they will be behind you forever..

    Enjoy puntoing around...

    :eek:fftopicyou coming for TFI south india meet??

    No buddy, I am going for a Long drive on the same day! Thanks for such a wise comments, certainly wise, I appreciate Team FIAT mod for not encouraging this kind of posts, I too never generally get distracted by such idiotic acts, Today It was just a moment I wanted to know what Fiat is all about in terms of high speed stabilty and handling it was perfect oppurtunity for me, I took a calculated risk ,everything was in control, after that incident I never crossed 2.5K RPM , I drove very gently
  8. Great to hear that you have already planned for a drive...thats the way to treat your baby...
    Dont mind me asking where you planned to go for vacation??
    If you really want to see what your car is capable of in terms of mileage,then drive below 80,at constant speeds..and after a few hundred kms be ready to be surprised...
