I guess it depends on individual driving habits and to a large extent on road and traffic conditions. My way to work is around 10 km and I hardly get to drive in 4th gear. I am always in stop and go traffic with constant changing of gears. I seriously think this is the reason why I dont get the good mileage figures that are reported by other Cedia owners.
I am surprised with such low average. I drive to EC from Marathalli, start early, traffic is moderate and not bumper to bumper though it is not very smooth too.

Return drive is pathetic and I get into at least 2-3 jams. Have been driving in city too.

Worst mileage I've got so far is 11.5 that included 70 km 5.5 hour drive in city and hosur road. Bumper to bumper traffic have also hardly impacted mileage and I have NOT been driving for mileage . Only doing my best not to offend people while driving.

Its driving habit coupled with how much of your total drive is B-to-B traffic as opposed to free road driving (i.e., in 4th or 5th gear for few stretches...)
I have been driving almost B-to-B, driving for one tank fill and I seemed to get less than 10 kmpl. Then after 1st service, I drove for 4 days B-to-B, and once did about 100 kms free drive (within and out of city), with 4th/5th gears.
Now the calculation goes well above 10 kmpl.
So, My observation is City B2B = <10 and Free driving >10. I guess thats reasonable figures, given the sporty nature of the car and the passion to drive in me.

2006 Tata Marina 1.4 TDi Diesel
Distance: Checked over the last 798km between full tank fills - Combination of terrible Bangalore Traffic (100% A/C, no switch-off at signals, est about 220km), moderate traffic (293km), and Bangalore Mysore trip, averaging 68kmph i.e. about 2hrs each way with short spirited bursts at 110~125kmph, and then some driving inside Mysore industrial area (285km)
Fuel: Combination of BP, HP, and some suspicious Highway Pump - no Shell, at any rate
Last Service: 2000km and 2 months ago

FE: 15.05 kmpl
Unfortunately the car does not return specific FE figures on trips through an on board computer, so I have no way of knowing how much exactly I get on highway Vs City driving.

Well, after two tank fulls of drive in city when I could not exceed beyond 8.2 on my Cedia I decided to take it head along.
I realised that the first service did not provide a tuning check due to a fresh (novice) service dealer in Lucknow.
I was lucky that one fine morning I recieved a follow up call by the service center where in I registered my complaint.
An email was also sent to the generic support mail at the HM website.
I recieved a call from the Delhi service Head assuring me that they will get my car tuned and checked on 17th by the serice center, to which I agreed happily.
Just today I again recieved a call by the same asking me to get it checked preferably on 23rd since the experts will themselves be visiting here for the check up.
Hope it is fixed and nothing serious.
Will keep everyone posted.
Meanwhile, I am trying to adapt to all possible driving habits as suggested by so many.

tankful to tankful on the highway- the swift VDi gives 19kmpl, with the AC on
if driven decently in the city, it can do 18kmpl(tested)
but traffic the way it is-I end up revving it a lot more- usually get only15kmpl with AC on in cochin
have got upto 18kmpl when I was driving around coimbatore city

will update with verna figures
but as a teaser- i suspect I'm making more than 22kmpl on the highways with climate control at 20 degrees all the time
with speeds between 80-100(eat your heart out petrol fanboys!)
