11kmpl for that monster, and in city, and in Pune traffic, and with a/c? Satya, you got a company Hemant, have you checked it regularly or is this one-off figure?

PS: I cannot say it's 100% city drive. The 15 kms stretch I travel to my office is a mix of both crowded & empty strech (Tambaram - Velachery)
God Bless You.
i drive to Sholinganallur from West KK nagar in Chennai

Yes RX, I have checked four times from last month. About A/C, it's not with 100% AC on but around 50% AC on. As this is rainy season manytimes I need to turn on AC for defogging also . Couple of my friend said it's beacuse of new car you r getting such a fuel efficiency. let's see after some period.

There's also one new ditch every week. I drive from CIT Nagar to Sholinganallur daily myself. 3 route options - the least crowded is CIT Nagar - Saidapet - Concorde Motors - Velachari bypass - Velacheri Tambaram road - Sholinganallur.

There's a new ditch I found this morning right outside the Doshi colony (next to the Ford service station). surprise - please be very very careful on this entire stretch.

27kmpl, even maruthi people won't belive it. Probably he would have towed it half the way.

My 1999 Santro gives me around 13.5 in city (AC 50%) and around 16.5 on highway runs..
F.E has improved after putting in a k&n stock replacement filter.

Default Palio S10 kmpl

I also have a Palio S10 which gives me City : 7 kmpl a/c on all the time, 11 kmpl without a/c on the highway , but I never mind it becase at Rs.5 Lakh I get driving pleasure as better as the City V-Tech which costs almost more than double of my S10's price
