    Even I heard same noise immediately after servicing and it vanished from next day .... not sure . I have seen tfian's reporting the same problem (after servicing in KHT) and there is separate thread of this pblm reported.

    Red Punto is stunning as always. Your best highway mileage is awesome. Crossing 30 KM/L mileage is on my wish list. Hope to try it in next highway trip.

    I have seen that thread. But yet their is no precise solution for his problem.

    - - - Merged Post - - -

    When i got this mileage if I remember correctly.
    My Speed is between 70 - 80 KM/H constant and RPM is between 1700 - 1900. As my turbo start getting spool around 1800 RPM.
    Once turbo start spooling I must say it is difficult to hold the A pedal. :p ::T

    Cool. You will enjoy!!!!
    Try to plan it late May so that climate will be little cool good for you and your pun to as well.

    Nothing to take care , as you already mentioned aboit fluid top up levels.

    Check for Car jack and is properly working, spare tire air presaure,A torch, Insurance papers RC smart ard/book.

    You will have diversions from Satara to Pune section ,while night drive be careful there are no white borders along the road.

    Safe drive.
