I have tried a few brews. BP Hi Speed Diesel was the worst as I had to take my car to service centre and get my EGR replaced. HP not that great mileage.

Best of all - IOC XTRA Mile - Absolutely fantastic.

I do Blr-Chennai-Blr quite often and got some amazing mileages with AC 100% on and constant 110-120 kmph... The best I have got till date is with IOC.

Cheers

PS : I drive an Accent CRDi
I have almost the same experience

HP: Mileage gotten was less
BP: I use this regularly and get my best mileages from this brand
IOC: As ridiculous as it may seem, i havent yet filled a single tankful of brew from them as they are quite scarce in Hyderabad
Shell, Reliance not tried them too.

All above only for normal diesel and whats the best mileage you got with IOC? I got the best of 20kmpl on highway and 14kmpl in city, never crossed these figures yet.

Ive a curious question, on idle, how much time it takes to move the temperature needle till the mark near C when you cold start?
I was feeling, my Swift takes little long time than usual to reach the normal operating temperature (which is some where in the middle of the meter) but I was never able to check it properly, today morning I started the car and waited till the needle start moving it took 9.30 min to reach till the mark near C i.e. some 2-3 mm, it was moving further on the same pace, so abandoned my test and proceed to office.
Is it normal? What about your cars?
I know there are some valves to control the cooling process of the engine so that as quick as possible engine reach the optimal temperature, and it was happening in my old petrol car. But I believe diesel needs more temp. for the optimal functioning.

How old is your car?

My VDi when it was around 500kms ran it was heating up very fast, that is with in 1 or 2 minute.

Now it is 3500 Kms done it takes around 5 mins to reach the middle mark (where the cooling fan starts running)

I think if it takes 5-10 mins or 5-10 kms shuld be ok because in my dad's Zen D it takes lot of time for the needle to reach the middle mark.

The temp climbs lil faster on the move compared to plain idle, at plain idle to move till C it takes about 5-8 mts.

I usually start and move after 10-15 secs, keepin my revs below 2 k and usually after 2-3 kms the temp would have moved beyond C and then i switch AC also on, and temp climbs to around half at end of 6 to 7 kms.

All of this after parking overnight or more than 5 to 8 hours, otherwise temp rises lil faster.

with diesel engines i believe temp rises faster during actual running than idle.

if the seat belts are worn generally they wont make noise, otherwise eventually the clips will hit the plastic moldings under severe vibrations, one thing is to wrap something around the clips to dampen the impact.

i noticed a lot of them prefer the 195s over the default company fitted 165s for the Vdi

Is there any particular reason for it and does it improve FE ?
what are the other advantages of switching ?
do u need to have alloy wheels for the sake of 195s ?

thanx in advance

what are the other advantages of switching ? handling and most imortant traction while accelerating and grip while braking

do u need to have alloy wheels for the sake of 195s ? if my memory serves right, yes OE rims are 5J and 195 require atleast 5.5 J

thanx in advance

do u need to have alloy wheels for the sake of 195s ? Not necessary make sure you have 6J rims.

Hey Guys, that issue has vanished, thanks for your inputs. But lots of new noises creeping up, all minor but without the music is very irritating.

Somebody wants to change to 15" left it there . Im OK with the stock tyers on road grip even on wet roads for my regular driving (about 70-90 Km at about 70-100Km/Hr including couple of sharp turns at 70-80), I feel everybody under estimate these tyers, they have very deep all weather treads, they are very gippy at least till now . But the down side is road noise and these deep groves attract stones like magnet and not very comfortable ride too.

Ive also found IOC regular lil better on FE side. Aporx. 1-1.5 Km/L compare to IBP regular, after many FE tests.

Buddy, do one thing put the car in second gear revv till 2500 RPM and dump the clutch and you will see how good these tyres are

The stock tyres are very very narrow and it doesnot support the car at high speed cornering, emergency braking, and high RPM launches.

Needless to say that these 165 tyres are very very risky, i can tell you after driving a 30k done Swift Vxi on these tyres, you corner at 20kmph it makes noises, bah!
