@ Vinod - SYSTEM D. G is for petrol!

EDIT: Gasoline

Not sure if it will be available at TASC's - try HP petrol pumps as well

If D is for Diesel P should be for petrol. Why G? Anyway thanks for correction.

I will check it with TASS for its availability.

most good petrol bunks in Madras carry stock of System D.
you can check the Balakrishna Bunk on St Mary's road - I have bought System G there years ago for my Esteem.

Excessive smoke problem was there right from the day one! When i complained they blocked the vaccum modulator. Initial pick up improved, black smoke problem reduced, but during heavy acceleration it is present. Will use system D and check.

One more observation, Fog lamps in my indica, are just cosmetic. They dont show me road ahead. Is this the case with all you guys? Can we adjust them?

not too sure about the triangular fogs your car has, but the round ones in mine are pretty good. About the same throw as my low beam, and better peripheral vision. Useful when you're driving with high beams/navigating tight corners and bad roads

Of course, they pale in comparison to what's there on your jeep

Iam planning to upgrade my tyres.
Glad you liked the fully-loaded interiors.

The 185/65's dont rub in wheel wells iff mud-flaps are removed. Otherwise on full turn they would scrap the flaps internally.

On the q's regarding fog lamps, i must re-iterate what greenhorn has mentioned that they have enough throw & intensity and act their true purpose adequately.

Vinod,

Even I have a DLG TCIC, bought in March 2006, and has covered 51k km till now. Some tips which may help you:

1. Parcel tray rattle: There are three hard rubber bushes on the inside of the hatch door. I have pasted two ordinary erasers using Fevibond to the rubber bushes. No rattle! The trouble is - erasers are softer, so tend to wear out after a while, so you will need to replace them once a year or so.

2. Tyres - I think my stock tyres are good for another 15-20k km.

3. Mileage - About 17 kmpl, with a mix of 60-40 highway-city running, ordinary HP diesel.

4. Black smoke - Please try a basic remedy. Take the car out to a non-residential area, and rapidly raise the engine, while the car is stationary. Repeat the process 4-5 times, which will drive out the soot from the muffler assembly. This should reduce the black smoke considerably.

Hope this helps!

P.S. As my signature shows, this is my second Indica, so that automatically makes me a satisfied customer!
