Trying to be light foot makes me get glares and stares and occasional verbal duels from all the other cars. so try to push it a bit and mileage gets pushed much faster.

Any tips to improve. Car has done about 5.500 kms and due for second service
Look up "Hypermiling" on the Internet. You'll get lots of tips to improve mileage, use the tips you find to be feasible for your kind of traffic conditions. Don't risk safety though.

In my view the Santro Automatic delivers better mileage since it makes it peak torque at much lower rpm. With the i10 engine peak torque comes at a much higher rpm so given the power loss in the torque converter you are really revving the engine much higher than in a Santro Automatic to get moving and hence consuming more fuel.

I recently got i10 Magna AT, and have done about 1400 km in 4 months. The car is great to drive but the FE is a huge dampener (7-8 kmpl). I believe the Auto gear box is not simply tuned for FE. Have been trying to force gear shift points by taking foot off the gas pedal for a fraction of a sec, but given the way our traffic is, it appears I am almost driving in 1st and 2nd gear.

I have a City NHC MT, which gives me 12+ and it so appears that I am constantly filling up the tank in i10!

Infractions: 0/1 (5)

@trrk: The FE is with 80% Non-AC and 20% AC. Ofcourse, 80% City Driving and 20% highway driving

@xingamazon: There are different technologies of AT and I do assume that FE would be different for same CC and power output.
For i10 atleast, Hyundai quotes following figures on their site
Source: http://www.hyundai.com/in/en/Showroo...313114502.html

19.81 for Manual
16.67 for Automatic

I am happy with FE since I used to get 13 to 14 in Santro and around 12 in i10 AT is good enough.

Note from Mod : 11 pages, and I guess whatever had to be discussed has been so. Please continue with any fuel-efficiency tips over on the MAX FE Article (ARTICLE: How to get the maximum Fuel Efficiency).
