Update

Checked the tire pressure today and was kinda to find that there was about 40 psi or air in each tire, went down to 32psi and the ride is a lot more cushioned, Im going to try 34 next time and try and get the perfect tyre pressure.

PS Forgot to mention that I also got a messenger bag from Michelin, Its made by Reebok and has a Michelin logo on it. Pretty cool.

Viper has them on his Santro, He got them for 2200 a piece, but thats because he knows Saifee. He told me to use his reference at Saifee but I had already changed my tyres by the time I got his pm.

Hey

Sorry about the extremely late reply. I get a little over 11 kmpl in Mumbai traffic with the AC on all the time which Im not really to upset about. I'm sure that figure would go up signicantly if I didn't spend so much time in bumper to bumper traffic.

As for tips to increase your mileage tbhp has a thread on it in the advice section.

Cheers
