    There is a small twist to the theory, your trip computer is more or less a calculated estimate can you do sometimes get Promising/Disappointing figures, however that does not happen all the time.
    Tank to Tank method is tried and tested method however there again there is a issue, the issue with our Indian Petrol fillers, I at least cannot imagine how a 47 liter Tank(Palio) fill upto 53.7 liters of fuel considering your piping storage can hold upto 3 odd liters. Again if I were to calculate my efficiency based on this, my Palio gave me a mileage of 7.9, I got confused, asked myself a question was I driving a Daewoo Cileo:dead: .
    Anyway the Point what I am trying to convey is trust your instincts and your Trip Computer :) because we have one

    The size is not a problem with the Linea because the newer cars come with 205/55 r16 tyres. If you are okay with the XM2 and want to save some money you can go ahead with it but if you want a better tyre, then the Primacy 3st is the one to choose.

    Since you work for Michelin can you tell me if the Primacy HP is sold in India or not? I was told by a dealer that it isn't available and one can't buy it in India. I am looking for in the size 205/55 r16.

    Hi.. I am upgrading my Fiat Punto tyre to 15' inch. Which is the best OEM alloys for the upgrade (some one suggested HRS - is it good?).. Also how expensive is the FIAT OEM alloys?
