    Hi folks,
    there are multiple factors that contribute to the car FE.
    1) right tire pressure
    2) the amount of load in vehicle
    3) tank to tank FE calculation method
    4) constant AC n engine on even at signals
    5) Air filter definitely contributes to the combustion

    for Linea the recommended TP is 33 pounds all 4 tires
    with fast approaching summers, it is highly recommended to have tire pressure checked weekly in case of normal air
    while incase of nitrogen once a month.

    happy driving folks

    Is it for petrol version?
    For MJD(Emotion) its 36 for front tyre and 33 for rear.

    33 psi for all tires. Sticker on the driver door side; 1.3 MJD Emotion (Nov, 2013 Manufactured).

    Mine too is new (bought on Jan,14) and just done 4700 Km on ODO.

    I got 13-15 kmpl on Chennai city driving.
    19-22 kmpl on Highways (Pondy<->Chennai) on weekends :)

    I think your FE is OK on city driving.

    Strange! For me its mentioned as 36 for Front and 33 for Rear.
    Experts, any comment on the tire pressure?

    Mean while I am back from first servicing(5K Kms), planning for a chennai drive this weekend. Time to get more FE data on the highways.

    Where did you check? Check with sticker on front gate.

    32 on all tyres is what mentioned in earlier cars, 2009 make.

    BTW, the tyre pressure one can use little more or less, based on individual choice and comfort.
    On highway, with full load, try to keep 2 PSI more than normal.

    Sree - MJD giving 15kmpl in highway is very less and I can't believe getting same mileage on both City/Highway.

    My hometown is 420 kms away from Chennai and it's 90% highway drive.

    Below is what I observed in my Linea MJD while doing couple of trips, also most of our forum members too get the same kind of mileage.

    --> Speed between 120 to 160 kmph - Mileage 16.5 kmpl
    --> Speed between 100 to 110 kmph - Mileage 21 kmpl
    --> Speed between 80 to 100 kmph - Mileage 23.5 kmpl

    Hope you are following the best driving practice discussed in this/other thread(s), so it would be good to have your car checked from FASS.

    Even in my car which is Sep'13 model, the front gate sticker is mentioned as 36 PSI for front and 33 PSI for back. May be because Linea Emotion which comes with 205 mm tyre, not sure though.

    Yes, I am referring to the sticker on the front gate only. For both 205 and 195 tyre size it points to 36/33(Front/Rear).
