Thats an average of 14.7 for a 1.6 engined car. Yours is the 1.6 sport which is detuned for performance.

It turns out to be 11.74 KMPL, not 14.7 KMPL. This what I generally keep seeing in my Petra 1.6 too.

@sreenivas: Busa was right.. it works out to 14.78 kpl (458 kms / 31 l).

@RaajKS: Maan, 14+ on blr roads with a 1.6 Sport sounds way too high!!

IMO, Fiat should use testimonials like yours to promote the Stile Sport... That should get orders pouring in, even if they don't ever offer a Test Drive!!

Buddy, raajks has mentioned 39 litres and not 31 litres for travelling 458 kms. Do the math, FE turns out to be 11.74 as Sreenivas mentioned. Unless, RaajKS has made a type error.

RaajKS, please clarify!

My Fiat Adventure 1.6 Sport gives 8.5-9km/l in full city driving and around 14-15km/l on highways. Both with 100% A/C and in F.E Mode. In Power/Racing mode she would just "Gulp and Gallop" without any complaints!!!

OFF TOPIC: And beleive me you wont regret about the figures after you have had the experience.
