Thanks for that.

You might have got answer for the 1st question and for 2nd one here is the answer.

Till date I have done 1000 kms and FE according to my caliculations is 11-12 in city with AC on for some time and off for sometime. Its 13-14 on Highways with AC on and Off.

Reg you friend if he is a wants FE then he must go for 1.1. If he has "Need For Speed" then 1.6 Stile would be more obvious choice.

Thanks San.

Thanks again for confirming that and for the tip on cold start.

But they say prevention is better than cure so i wud stick to limitaitons for 500 kms more.

even the ones on my car are like that which was worrying. the stile 1.6 red i saw at concorde was the same as well.. if you get any info on this please do share here as well



also to ppl asking about mileage figures it depends on how you drive as well, i get 11 in city and 11 on highway as well

Unhappy Guys how do u get these FE figures ??

Guys,

How do you end up with the 10-11 FE figures for the 1.6 ???

I have empty roads and am getting anywhere between 6-7 w/o AC !

What could be wrong ? - I need to reach 9-10 w/ac

Check your clutch usage and gear in which you run the vehicle the most and traffic conditions. And as rightly said by Bottle
