Fabia petrol owners on T-Bhp might have more information?
Like I said the PR guy must be really good. Obviously you don't want to tell your customers that you goofed up even though you charged a premium over competition on account of superior quality.

Dear BHP-ians, i'm the guy who got the letter The PR guys in Skoda seems very good at constructing sentences that they know customers would love to read. anyway, i'm not going by their words and booked the car on the basis of my feeling after taking numerous test drives under many possible conditions that i'd encounter in day to drive. For me, it was pretty much satisfactory and the feedback from the new 1.2 owners here too were good with most of them reporting mileage of around 11.5km/l in city drives. I think it should go up once the engine runs in. I would be using the car for city commuting (98%), long drives or highway drives are virtually nil for me.

I should thank the dealer here for giving me so much TD opportunities eventhough they made a mess of my color choices and price towards the end. I've posted a detailed note of my experiences till now (expecting the delivery of my 1.2 Ambienete by next week) in another thread which belongs to beloved BHP-ian Netchef.

At least on this thread, people are referring to the 1.4 Petrol.
