Why the wheel alignment so soon? Was it because of the tyre change?

Regarding, FE - don't worry, just enjoy your car. Stick to service schedule and see to your fuel filters.

P.S. Real smart looking car.

I bought a Lxi in Mar 2006 and in the last one year my mileage in Bangalore has been quite consistent between 10-11, 100% A/c all the time. I would rate
my driving as quite normal. I am quite happy though as I was getting the same in my Santro (2001 model). On highways, I tend to race her a lot. In all those drives I got between 14-15, 100% A/c and quite consistent at that.

If you are doing 140KMPH then defintely means you are doing a lesser speed
And if you are car is returning 10 KMPL then its giving you slightly lesser

BTW you got a nice car, I have a 2005 pearl silver baleno though I wanted a Maroon just like yours, it was'nt available then.

thankx fr that ya but my route here in banagalore is whats killing the mileage
i use some shortcuts where i have to drive at 20kmph because of the bad roads .. so may be caus of that

i wanted to buy a black baleno but unfortunetly they had onle this colour ,but iam pretty happy with this now it looks cool
