My i10 Magna AT has done 1400 kms, First service done recently. It is giving me 8.5 km/l. 100% city driving with a/c and i am very light footed.
I have an habit of applying brakes very frequently, still not got settled with AT driving. Can this cause reduction in mileage?

@black, what's the mileage that you are getting?

umm - overall the i10 kappa is after all not that FE as the Kseries.
strage - the Kseries is lugging most likely a heavier car in the Ritz and delivers better FE. remarkable

My i10 1.2 MT gives around 11-12.xx with about 75% A/C in city.

Fuel used: Shell Super Unleaded.
Air Pressure: 32 psi, Normal air
Tyres: 185/60/14
Occupants: 90% of time driver + passenger
Driving style: Mostly Sedate

Since the Shell Super is now costing a whopping 58.xx/litre, i have recently changed to Shell Normal Unleaded petrol. Mileage check in progress, will be able to update this weekend.

Didint really have a chance to take her out on highways after the second service.

Prior to that she was giving close to 15 (about 50% A/C)

Mileage figures for my car

The last leg of 175+ km with clean stretch of NH2 gave me around 19kmpl.
All figures with 75% - 100% AC.
Also, please follow the tips n tricks posted by maverickdrive for driving an AT.

Frequent braking means you are accelerating frequently, and the transmission has to shift gears up / down more. This should eat up some FE. Also, 100% city drive in b2b traffic with 100% AC should give around 11-12 kmpl. Mileage should gradually increase for you after 2000 kms.

Got my I10 Sportz Manual on Nov, 28th. Has done 4600 Kms so far and its been completely City Drive with 90 % AC. Getting FE around 12 - 13 with daily drive on the horrific Haralur road where the car will run mostly on 2 - 3 gears. I never tried on a Highway, other than occasional drives to Hosur. But I guess it should be around 14 - 16.

My I10 Kappa has run about 4000 kms.
During a recent drive to my native it gave the following figures ..

Highway with AC : 16.87 km/lt ---- Afternoon drive
Highway with no AC : 18.87 km/lt. (211kms/11.18 Lt.) ---- Early morning drive

In the City Drive it gives 12.5 to 13 km/lt.

Remember, the fuel efficiency improves after the second service. That could be a reason all new(er) kappa owners are reporting lower numbers.

I got my i10 Irde in June 2008. Averaged 11-13 km/l till the second service, after which the fuel efficiency improved considerably. I now get 16+ easily with some sedate driving.

I would recommend a kappa over irde simply because its a new gen engine. I think that'll translate into better resale.

Well after 3ed service also doent made any big changes
In Highway with 50% ac getting only 14-14.5km/l.
usually one person in the car in highways.(me only)
I am using hp unleaded petrol
Speed around 90km/hr.
When i spoke to service people(ktc hyundai thrichur) they said 14 is good figure compared to other i10.and will get good fe only within 60kmhr.
I am not satisfied with this figures.

zma, this could be due to fuel quality. If you are confident about the same, then try changing the driving style a bit. Like up shifting at 2000 rpms itself. Have you tried it? Also, do not floor the pedal, let the acceleration be gradual.

@zma

FE is indeed a bit low on highways. I got around 16 kmpl on NH just after 2nd service, and getting around 13 kmpl in city-highway driving with light traffic. Both figures with 100% time AC on at 50%.
P.S: what's your car's mileage?

what are the actual FE figures that are reported by the K-series users? I have also heard the same, curious to know the actual numbers
One thing is evident- hyundai always falls short of maruti on FE for all their offerings, something they need to look at maybe

I have posted FE figures for my Ritz ZXi in this thread itself. Check out this link - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/long-t...ml#post1773121 (How much is i10 1.2 Kappa's fuel efficiency?)

I am surprised, how can you drive on a highway with only 15% AC which means 85% of the time your window is rolled down.

Doesn't the wind noise bother you? What speeds were you doing on highway? Also, I think the wind resistance adds to more consumption.

Post about 1st FE with Kappa.

from:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...ml#post1799241 (H- i10 my pleasure (Vanilla icecream flavour))

Car Age: 40 days
Odo reads: 370
TF (Tank Full)
Previous
TF: @17km on Odo
This TF: @348
Fuel consumed upto this TF=23.43L

Therefore,
FE=(348-17)/23.43
..
FE=14.12

That's the first FE calculated! (with my bro and dad learning on it, and Me too doing advanced-rookie driving!) I think thats decent!

In those clicks,
City(actual city, and learning drives in Gears 1,2,3)=50%
Highway(actual highway+some spirited driving upto 4K rpms!+revvier down/up shifts)=50%

Ace.
