congrats eletrix!! The 1.6 really rocks. Make sure you do the running in properly. Adventure production is stopped. I heard that there were a few Silver Frost colours available. may be they are all gone. So is it the Stile or the retro one that you have bought?

Good review Srirambr. Good to see that spares are available on demand and not on order.

The FE of 9 in city and 15 on highways is possible from 1.6 motor. looks like they are most common figures. I get almost the same even though mine is palio 1.6 hatch.

I have a 2002 Adventure. One of the very first. Done over 75K kms. No major problems at all. have been getting a steady FE of 12 kmpl with A/c. 13-14 on the highway depending on driving style.

I guess you just have to resist the temptation to gun that sweet engine. Though I give in from time to time & the mileage drops. Also have a replaced the air filter with a K&N (drop in not conical performance) & a FFE.

I guess its a question of not gunning that sweet engine. I do give in from time to time which has an effect on the FE. I also have a K&N filter (drop in, not performance) and an FFE.
