Since this car is used by my mom I'm not expecting much out of it. But right now this car is giving less than my Kizashi. Maybe things will improve after the first oil change.

Nice FE that you are getting on the Astar_AT.
Long time since I checked the FE of our AT.

BTW, why do you keep Front & Rear tyre pressure different ? IIRC MSIL suggests 32 psi for all 4 wheels.

You should check the mileage, I think you car is being driven in kerala.

I don't think I can extract more mileage than this out of this engine , the mileage figures were from the recent drive to yercaud. The kickdowns are fun, shifting to D3 at 60 gives instant acceleration on highway, once the speed goes below 40, it takes it own sweet time to reach 80.

With the MSIL recommended pressure, the ride was quite bumpy on uneven Bangalore roads. Also the car was a bit lethargic to move in peak traffic, so the trick was to increase the front psi to 34 & keep rear at 31, the ride is extremely harsh though.

The best combination is 33 at front, 30 at the rear. My tyres are placed over steel rims, the psi comes down a bit in 2-3 days after a refill.
