And I am sure Maruti won't complain.

As for Automags, their FE figures particularly the ones derived from all those closed door contests they run the lesser said is the better.
If somone is solely concerned about extracting best fuel economy, such figues are possible as demostarted by Autocar folks driving a diesel Fiesta to Mumbai from bangaore on a tankful. If I remember right that worked out to be 33km/ltr

Yes, and I'd assume this particular test was a clincher for the Fiesta. Whatever good numbers the Fiesta did and is doing eventually, is courtesy that test. Hell, even the petrol Fiesta gave 22 kmpl on that test!
