  1. That's a decent FE. I am getting only 9 :( I keep the rpm at around 2000. I always keep the IC reading on display when I drive. Haven't had any success in increasing the FE.

    Is your running in heavy traffic (lots of gear changes, braking, acceleration etc)? Mileage can also suffer on shorter runs. You can get the air filters & tyre pressure checked also.

    @ ancientmariner: How old is your car? yes do check the tyre pressure. Was getting mileage of 9-10 initially too. Also hope you reset the trip meter before any trip( I also reset my trip meter to show average consumption in kms per litre).

    @roadrash: I think you are getting a decent average, it should increase. Do try the above steps too. Also I try to keep a light foot on accelerator.

    Does the tyre specification also help in increasing or decreasing the FE? :confused1
  5. My car is about 4 months old with 900 kms. Yes its mostly through moderate city traffic and short runs ( < 5kms) and thanks to the umpteen speed breakers in my area, there is constant gear changing/braking/acceleration. During one of the highway runs on NICE Rd I got an amazing 15 km/l @ 80-90 km/hr. Didn't go beyond that speed.
    I guess 9-11 is the norm for city for 1.4 Punto.

    I think there is no issue with your Punto. Traffic and short runs are killing the FE :cry: Try to slowdown without brakes when approaching speed breakers and gently accelerate. I would rather drive as I like, ignoring the 1 kmpl increase in FE. ::T

    I am new to the forum. I also has 1.4 Emotion 900 km . In my case I got max FE of 19.4 for a trip from vasco to Panjim around 31 km.
    One has to use correct gear.

    I stays in Zuari Nagar. Mine is also october purchase. I might have seen your vehicle since there is very few Punto's
    on road in goa. My delivery was in Oct 16th. I have seen a brand new BNW EP 1.4 inside the showroom for dispayand probably yours will be the same. Congrats for your vehicle. My ac is very cool. Even in 1 we feel very cool. But I am also using Lumnar diamond series fil which has 93% heat resistance(11K). Probably better cooling may be due to this. I am facing a strange warning light issue in my car. The car some times jerks in morning while moving and the EOBD light blinks. Will be taking the vehicle to Fatorda. How is the noise level while during initial acceleration. I am finding it growls even below 2.5 K.
