My i20 gives me an avg of 12ich in city (with 100% AC on).

Not driven too much on highways.

yeah! you are wrong. You bros xeta is GLX which is 1.4 Peugeot engine. The lower versions are all 1.2 tata engine which usually gives 8-9 kmpl in the city. The xeta of this guy is an exception.

1.4 Peugeot engine? Is that true? I had a first generation Xeta GLS, which was 1.4. I usually got a mileage of around 11-12 in city and 14-15 on highways, and 12-13 on LPG everywhere. But my belief was that the 1.4 is from TATA itself and not a sourced one. I think 1.2 was just a scaled down version of this 1.4. Correct me if I am wrong. Also I am having friends with 1.2 Xeta who claims to get around 16-17 on an average.

The Xeta 1.4 had a tata engine. Same block as the Diesel. Tata also offererd a smaller 1.2 litre engine to avail the lower excise duty on samll cars.

@mohandos - You are right, my bro model was GLX.

@rajneeesh - 1.4 Petrol engine which comes in Xeta were sourced from Peugeot and its not TATA made, those engines are awesome and it has raw power in it. I don't understand why the hell TATA stopped selling those engines.

@Sushil - Thanks for the explanation, I drive the same way albeit i tend to cruise in the highway . Inside the city i ensure i don't cross 2000 RPM.

Other Corolla owners - Kindly share you Mileage to clear the ambiguity.
Hey Cam,

You need to help me here, I got a 2006 corolla H5 last month, it has done 76k kms, and I am not getting more than 11 kmpl in city, and a 70% highway run with 30% city run gave me 13kmpl,help, how do I get more.

Its true, yes even the santro I had, used to give me 11kmpl, in city with AC, but on a eco run between 60 to 80 I had got 17kmpl, otherwise highwayrun between 90 to 120 I used to get 14kmpl.

Vehicle: 2007 Ford IKON Flair.

Route: Sulthan Bathery - Bangalore - Sulthan Bathery

Kms Run: 652; 35% City and 65% Highway.

Fuel Consumed: 48.21 Liters.

Fuel Efficiency: 13.52.

This involved extreme ripping on the highway - 'all' the time. Speeds in excess of 150Km/hr. Quite happy with the figures.

11 kmpl in city is respectable for a Corolla. Though highway mileage is a bit on the lower side.
Still, mileage depends on a lot of factors and so maybe you should keep those in mind for extracting a better FE on highway.
