Not likely as it is newly released. The fuel efficiency figures begin to stabilise only after about 5000 km.

I dont think so there is much of a fault with Pumps, my In laws had a Santro Zip plus which never used to deliver more than 11kmpl in the City.
They were also quite pissed of due to same.

Own a Santro 2001 September model, took it for an oustation drive from Jodhpur to Jaisalmer with 5 people and loads of luggage and 700 Kms on the odo-FE 18.24 kmpl.Driven constantly at approx 80 w/o AC.
After that, it has constantly delivered mileage of 17+ with A/c on highways an at times around 20 kmpl w/o AC.
The worst that i have got on Highway was with 8 people stuffed in(some how), AC at full blast in sweltering Desert heat of rajasthan and Santro at 100+ was around 16 kmpl.I just can't imagine Santro at 11.
Well, as read in the fuel saving tips on this portal, the driving was almost of that sort. with non premium fuels.
To add on, I have observed with my Santro & Splendor that using premium fuels definitely smoothens the engine and reduces gear changings but the FE is reduced by 15-20%.
I wish if someone else could also veriify the same.

My Nissan X-Trail 2.5 CVT Petrol figures for highway is 13. Sedate, smooth driving at around 100-110kmph, with AC and just two people. CVT is the way to go!

City stop and go traffic it comes down to 9.

My previous SX4 1.6 Petrol auto never gave above 12kmpl in Highway!
