Question swift diesel mileage ????

Hi friends i have bought swift vdi (diesel) in the las week , and i am getting 10 or 11 kmpl avg with and without a/c combined.When i asked the dealer about this he said it will increase after 1st service. But before buying the car they told me max buyers of this diesel version are getting 16 to 18kmpl avg. So dose the avg increases after 1st service and if yes by how much???
please reply !!!

The mileage does increase after the first service upto 3-4 km/l

but it also depends on your driving style to if you drive like a rally driver then it would be less and if you drive at a steady speed it would be more

my sisters vdi is getting 15 with ac on all the time

i get around 13 in my alto when people are getting 22-23 km/l

Driving patterns determine whether you get 10 or 14 Kmpl. Being a diesel, you would be better off staying in higher gears. Were you driving a petrol before this ?

Mileage depends on driving style. Stay in higher gears. Drive at steady
speeds. Avoid harsh acceleration & braking. Fuel efficiency will certainly improve. OT: My dad gets 16.5-17 kmpl in M-800 in city driving with ac on 60 % of the time

ya my friend father is get in 15-18 figure...and they are extremly happy with the car performance........try to run the car in higher gear with low rpm.....and check the tyre pressure as under inflated tyre will also cause bad mileage....

Flyin low,

I think it was more of hype that Swift diesel would give 21 Kms mileage....In actual you dont that. When I got my Accent CRDi my friends quoted a efficiency of 15 in the city and 24 on the highways. Dealer quote was 17 and 24. My car has done the first service (note that HSS do not change oil in the first service - will be done during the sec and third service)and it returns 12 kms in the city with AC and 20.9 with AC on highways. My friend gets 12-13 km with AC for the diesel swift. I have friends who claim 15 kms for Wagon R and Santro where I used to get 12 without AC in Wagon R......

Driving style is the single largest contributor to good or bad mileage, alongwith factors such as traffic conditions, tyre pressure, clutch riding etc. you may certainly experiance better mileage with all given parameters remaining constant after having done about 1500-3000 kms. That's my take based on experiance..........

Cheers

thanks friends for replying and suggesting good things. I do drive like a rally driver but its occasionally and depends on my mood. But other wise i always try to drive on or under 2000rpm at a higher gear to get a good mileage. I hope after my first service i might get more than 15kmpl.

The boost built is pretty high for a 1300 which means that the car is fuelled well from 2000 to 4000 revvs.
Take care of the engine during the run-in and she must be fuel-efficient.

Swift Diesel gives around 12kmpl in city and 18kmpl on the highway.

City figure is for mumbai city traffic. And this swift had run more than 25000kms.
