Preetham didn do the instal!!

some more for GeekSrik..

Its a go kart!! with 195 tyres.
Its pretty frugal, with the kind of fuel consumption i seen till now on fuel guage, 240 kms plus some 50 mts idling
Engine oil still going clean.
Very convenient to drive and park in banaglore.

Cool Mileage kya hein? and some heat..

Everybody wants to know mileage kya hein!! for me right now its the pleasure i get when the turbo kicks in BUT yes FE is one of the primary reason why i choose Swift diesel in the first place.

So from last fill to now kms covered = 331.2 kms

Filled 23 liters in the morning, regular IOC Diesel

Tho mileage for now is 14.4 km/Liter under following condition.
  • This is 100% bangalore traffic with AC ON 98%, i wait till the temp guage hits the zero mark.
  • 95% of travel without hitting 5 th gear.
  • say 80-85 % without the 4 th also.
  • Idle through out the stops and add another 40 minutes of idle for stereo installation.
  • Last time i filled gas at 2 pm in the afternoon, this time 730 am.
  • Approx 1 liter or more this time which i have NOT deducted for my calculation (last time the gauge was bang on F mark, this time it has gone beyond) and the guy went 1 liter more from first cut off, usually i correct to nearest liter after the first cut off.

So the HEAT part, its not the engine rather the Sun and i decided to get the glass sun filmed.

Had seen the tint shop near life style, its actually owned by Pit stop guys. They have an AC environment for sun film, so no dust risk and also well equipped with a hand held hot air blower and all for getting that stubborn sun film to shape.

The installer is super duper fast and really great work, am 99% satisfied with him BUT i think they are on expensive side, charged me 3.5 k for the car and that too after 20% discount they give for all citibank cards, i felt it was crap.

When i asked for front strip (not comes in the package) and a lil wider than usual (10 inch at the edges) she said 500 bucks!!!

So careful, great quality work.... VFM is really dicey.

hmm ... 14.4km/ltr sounds less but remember you are still under 500km!! perhaps without a/c and in 5th gear 16-17 is guaranteed! 3.5k for sunfilm is too high!!

yeah the tint mart is owned by pitstop and their prices are exhorbitant. Which brand did you go for.

If you go around the corner to Car shringar in the same building they around Rs.700 cheaper for the LLumar silver series. Tint mart quoted Rs.2200 for silver series whereas Car shringar was Rs.1500. Tint mart also said they will charge Rs.150 for removing the old film whereas Car shringar said no charge for that.

Auto Fusion quoted Rs.1600 for the whole thing. Pro drive in Shivajinagar gave the same thing for Rs.1400.

Remember if you go for Llumar the llumar guys come and do the install so they have all the equipment.

morning is better since the weather is cooler and evaporation is lesser. You get more quantity if you fill in the morning.

Ya, but I think there won't be appreciable loss to make it significant to specially go and fill up in the morning.

I think it has got more to do with density of the fuel being higher in cooler weather than evaporation.

yup density as well. but also something to do with evaporation. I remember reading that somewhere. I'll try and get a link.

It doesnt make that much of a difference but theres no harm with that little bit extra.
