  1. MID in our Punto / Linea helps to improve / adjust our driving style to a greater extent. What information you like to see, while you are driving?

    I like to see the trip fuel consumption. It really helps me to extract more kilometer per liter of my Punto.

    Sometimes, when I rush, the clock comes handy.

    "Ic" is for me.
    nothing like real time fuel consumption display!!

    but now i rarely look at the IC on the MID. ::V

    Its the tachometer that has my attention.. get the right rev's & get the consumption i'm expecting..

    I find myself switching between IC, AcA and AcB most of the time.
    For me AcB is the Trip FE and AcA is the Lamp glow to Lamp glow FE. Yes I do not do the traditional tank full to tank full method, instead I reset the Trip A when the yellow fuel level lamp lights up.

    Apart from instant fuel consumption, as it distracts my attention while driving, I frequently refer to all other parameters.
  6. Its the AcB (trip FE) and rpm needle tip (lesser these days, as the it comes more naturally to shift at the right instant) that I follow during my city drives.
    During long, I also toggle between IC and AcB.
    AcA, I too use to calculate between the lamp glows

    Clock for me. Anything else takes my attention away from the road

    NO wonder Maruti...says. Kitna Deti Hai lol. Well, I myself keep an eye on IC and second most important, I always watch the temperature. Specially when I'm on highways.

    Initially my MID showed the CD track info. If I can hear the song then why is this needed? :confused1 I then set the MID to Instantaneous Consumption, but this was too instantaneous. So right now MID shows Average consumption.
  10. Unlike the majority opinion here, I don't want to see the FE while driving... especially the IC... it takes away the fun in driving and it drags my attention from road.
