So normally i get around 520-540 KMPL, but for last two times i got 620-630 KMPL. I think that is because of less usage of the AC.

i also would like to mention that usually i keep 28 pressure in tyres, as it feels really bumpy at 33. But the 600+ have been at 33 PSI.

On highways i have been comfortable with speeds like 100-120. and over all millage used to be 20-22 KMPL. On our ride to Chitkull we got 23.something. I was really amazed by the performance and efficiency of the car. I rarely used M cause then i forget to change gears :P
Dear desideep,

There seems to be a small typo here. Are you really getting 520-540 to 620-630 km per lt? OR do you mean km per tank? OR do you mean something else?

Later you talk ot 20-22 kmpl ....

No offense intended.

Take care.

A question to all : What is the model number mentioned on your RC copy. Mine says Alto K10B VXI without mentioning any AMT anywhere, even though it is an AMT model.

Also has anyone tried the Full Tank method for mileage calculations? What are the mileage figures one gets for a full tank calculation.

I drive in bumper-to-bumper traffic, for mostly short distances before the engine has warmed up enough, and get very poor mileage figures. Since the last tank full I have taken taken great care to drive in a fuel-efficient way and drove extra distance during each ride. I will update my mileage figure during next tank full, in a day or two.
I checked my smart card and it says "New Alto K10 VXi BS4". Not sure why the AMT part is missing or if it really is a vital thing to be missed.

Our Alto K10 AMT just crossed 1000km and I'm recording a mileage of 11kmpl. This is in crazy bumper to bumper traffic with a moving average speed of 12kmph as per Google My Tracks app and the Torque Pro app.

To compare, my old Alto K10 (the original pocket rocket) also used to give me an avg mileage of about 13kmpl in similar driving conditions over its short but amazing journey of 4y/30000km with our family. The same car gave me a jaw dropping 24kmpl on Highway cruises.. So I know it's the traffic to blame.

I could be wrong, but I think this could be an issue which will come up at the insurance renewal time, when they calculate the IDV from model on registration and if AMT is not mentioned then your new insurance might not have AMT mentioned on it.

I faced a similar issue when I renewed by insurance and had to get it corrected in the insurance records.

Thanks all for reminding to recheck my RC Card.

It does have "AMT" mentioned. Here's mine:

Thanks for the DIY audio install @vsathyap

Do any of you know where I can find Accessories for the Alto K10? Everytime i search online, it shows parts for the previous gen K10.

Another question. I was checking out the Alto Urbano Edition on the website and i noticed this bluetooth kit. Any idea if its any good and if Maruti sells it individually? Same goes for the ambient lighting (no pic available for this)

Got to know from a friend today that Maruti may soon announce the safety pack (O option packs) for the Alto 800 and K10, so he asked me to delay my purchase decision by a few weeks. We have been considering the K10 as the replacement for our M800.
Hope this is announced soon, fingers crossed

A useful piece of information for all Alto owners who are blinded by the HL glare from their IRVMs and yearn for a Day/Night mirror.

Models Applicable
- Every Alto(Pre facelift to current K10) , Pre-K series WagonRs without D/N mirror

Now let the pictures do the talking.

I recently bought this for BHPian a4anurag. So this part is very much in production. This is just a plug and play modification and is completely reversible.

Regards,
Shashi

You'll need to place an order at your MGP store, preferably with an advance. The part is still serviceable so I guess they shouldn't have any issue in sourcing it for you.

I had placed the order with the MGP stockist that I visit often and they assured me the part within 14 days from order placing. Merrily I went ahead and placed order, after 30 days and quite a few calls, there was no response from them so I chucked the plans of getting one. Then one fine day I see BHPian Leoshashi post a picture of this IRVM that he bought so I PM'ed him asking if he could help me source the part.

He agreed for it and placed an order. Shipped it to me. Shall be receiving it tomorrow.

When this is optional, why cant they include the ABS also in the package along with passenger airbag?! Those who wish & have the budget will opt for it.
