One more observation I’ve made carbon from IOC is more oily/ greasy were IBP seemed more dry and powdery (may be that is the reason its less found in the pipe).
FE found more or less same.
Good and spot on observations

Geekji: have you hooked up your stereo? Pio's have inbuilt clock and you will not have to fiddle with the dash (less rattle chances)

But…. I still don’t know which is more suitable for this engine. I believe it is important; we within this community need to find out an answer, so all of us will be benefited.

yup and am on it

better FE is an indicator of suitability for a particular engine (max efficiency), so if there is a drop in FE with Shell, i will opt for IOC.

hey guys, filled up from Bharat Petroleum pump last week. its half tank right now. Taking estimated guess, its giving me 19.77 km/ltr. 100% city driving with office places in Gurgaon and C.P. Guys from NCR can imagine traffic condition. 30-40% A.C.

BTW i got the tank filled when indicator mark was on the lower side of E red mark. I told attendant to fill the tank till auto cut off. The tank filled in 32 ltrs. The fuel tank capacity is given as 43 ltr. So does that means that there is still 11 ltrs of fuel left ?

Hey Austere Sly,

Can you post a day pick of the clock.

That FE of 19.7x is awesome in City driving. Yes 11Liters would be in the car and thats normal since Swift D doesnot have low fuel warning, we tend to take precautions of filling it earlier.

Good efficiency courtesy pace of the traffic in city. Otherwise who wants to drive the car at 60.

I have one pic of the clock which I tool with flash.

Ok confirmed the Shell Diesel indeed gives less FE, tanked up and found 410 kms and 27 liters which is approx 15.1 kmpl, this when i was using AC for maybe 20% time.

Its monsoon and AC becomes a nuisance hence very rarely am i running with it (windows are wound up though), this time around i had very minimal short runs so ideally the FE should have improved from my 16's.

Engine was deffenitely more rough, will update again once i put in some kms with IOC regular.

So in short Shell aint the favored brew for Swift diesel.

Default Reliance Vs IOC

I have tried Reliance and IOC extra mile so far. I think the clutter is less with IOC. Also in the last refill I got 17.8 kmpl in city with 20-30% AC. Also steady 24-25 highway mileage with 20-30% AC around 1800-2200RPm.

Post Brake light issue

Yesterday when I was coming on highway (Bhavani - Mettur-Dharmapuri-Bangalore). Twice I stopped with hand brake and after starting the car I found the BRAKE light was still on. I could not make out what is the issue. The brakes are released and the car is moving freely. The brakes were working. After 10 mins of driving the light started flashing and stopped.

Initially I thought the light indicator switch may have some issue. But it stopped after 10mins after flashing.

Have any one come across this issue?

I stopped the car and read the manual. It says it may be glowing if the brake fluid is less. I do not know why the is off after some time if that is the case.

Help me.

As you have already found out, the brake light will glow if the brake fluid is less also. As per my experience in the Indica, initially it will blink once in while, and once it is considerably less, the light remains on. It maybe because, the sensor is not always reading the level as low in the marginal conditions.
This may also cause with a faulty level gauge.
