Guys,

My fiesta Sxi 1.6 gives me around 9.75 - 10 Kmpl with in the City. It has just run 1500 Kms. I haven't blasted it across the Highway. I was told by the Ford that Mileage would improve only after 5000 Kms.

I travel daily around 40 kms across Chennai. I don't switch on my AC

cheers..

whats your driving style when you say that you were ripping it --19.6 seems too unlikely for a fast drive!

@ajishvj, are you trying to make a statement about your Petra FE by posting it 16 times ? I hope not and assume that it is a mistake.
Mods, could you please delete the extra posts ? Thanks.

My OHC VTEC has been giving a constant FE of about 10-14 kmpl depending on the position of my right foot. However, once my driver drove it for a long distance trip at a much more sedate pace than me and the FE was around 16 kmpl! But only once :-(

do you guys know how to get good efficiancy????
1. fill gas in the late evening
2. at a fuel pump where the dispenser is relatively new
3. use your own addittives
4. fill the tank when it has 50% fuel

early mornings would be a better time to fuel up, as far as I have heard.
How does point 4 help ?

I used to get 13-14 kmpl with A/C in delhi traffic, in a Xing. and around 15kmpl in the winters.

Never used to rev her up - always liked the lower-end punch of the engine.
