Every 3 minutes of Idle, we lose 1KM, so do the math!

Thats what one of the senior A.S.S guy at hyundai told me and you can +/- from it with a pinch of salt for other car models. Why do you think everybody is crying hoarse regarding saving fuel???

I usually switch off if red light shows 60 secs+ if not, then i let it idle.

What i do under such situations where i need to wait is to switch off the car. Having had the A/C on, the interiors remain slightly cool and bearable.
On Saturday evening, i had to wait about 15 mins at Forum as the parking lot was full. Switched off the car, turned up the volume on the music system and whiled away time. The weather in Bangy being cooler these days in the evenings also helped.

Hi Ben well then you are really lucky there , for me here once i chill the whole cabin it becomes hot and humid again within 3 to 4 mins and that also at 8 pm in the evening . I dare not think how it would have been in the afternoons !!

I was just trying to arrive at correct figures for my car mileage , all my previous posts regarding the mileage had not accounted for the huge idling times !
Tel kharcha ka abhi koi tension nahi lena ka , koi bhi petrol pump mein jakar diesel bharane ka, kya !!

Sorry for reopening this thread guys, but need Your help.

I had booked a VDI sunlight copper, 3 months ago with Mondovi, I was promised a delivery soon.

I got a call from the dealer on saturday and am told that Marutis VDI production is very slow in Sunlight Copper colour and that it could take another 3 months for delivery!!!

Could anyone help me out!
1) I have already posted a mail via Maruti website regarding the same.
2) Should I call up every other dealer and confirm the availability!
3) Anyone bought a VDI in sunlight copper colour!

TIA.

The dealer is just pulling a fast one on you. You should have got a Sunlight copper by now, it is a new color and was introduced just about the time you booked your car.

Go and give him a piece of your mind.

Thanks Kuttapan,

I enquired with RNS and to my astonishment, these guys said Sunlight copper is available only in Petrol!!! Darn these guys!!!

Am talking to Mondovi again, let me check what reasons these come up to! But if they outright say it will take another 3 months, am confused What I should do!

Any suggestions please.
