Not exactly. 40% of our journey is though MVPA-TDPA-Idukki-Kattapana route (Kerala SH-33). MC Road stretch from Koothathukulam till Kottayam is 95% done. MVPA-Koothatukulam road is still under construction.

Just to clarify. As per my understanding, the last listed as "best" is where the disparity is the least. i.e. Mazda MX-5 on an average gives more FE than claimed numbers and S-Cross, on an average, gives 92% of the company claimed figures.

Sorry Argee, but if my understanding above is correct, I am not sure if your observation correlates to volkman's post above.

What is that most owners follow here?
I reset FE for every long trip manually and if I want to match the FE for a refill, I manually reset when I do a tank full.

Thanks for clarifying; its heartening that there's a discrepancy of only 8% with 92% accuracy

I'm now confused as whether to reset for every trip or every tankful. Anyway I've been tracking all my vehicles with app, so, I get a long term as well as trip wise FE including timing. So I don't know how to handle this information overload on SCross

Yes your understanding is correct. Same goes with emission in real world testing. Suzuki seems to have it right there too!

Any pointers where I can checkout good companies in chennai who can do this job? I am trying to locate this info in our forum and in google without success. I am thinking of getting this mod done in my Scross zeta since the stock bulbs are literally useless.

I do not know anyone in Chennai. You can check with Retro Rides / Morimoto India. They might recommend you the place of installation.

Cheers!!

I am waiting for you to write down ownership review of your Code 6 tuned 1.6 S-Cross . As per the videos I had come across in what's app, the acceleration of Code 6 S-Cross is better than mine with TOT remap.
Thanks Naren
Will pen down the review soon.

Tires are wearing out a bit unevenly. Same for all 4 tires, though 4 tires are rotated at every 5K KM from MASS. We usually do all the alignment and balancing works outside of MASS but non of the alignment guys in my home town have the data for S-Cross.
How often do you check air pressure ?

This is real bad worn out @26K. I have placed my 28K run Elanzo next to your photo. For me the tyres are as good as new even after 28K KMs.

With Zeta what's the problem? Simply upgrade to 90/100 or if you want to experiment, try 100/130. Use ceramic holders for both setup & use ONLY roots relay kit. You can get this done at G.P.Road or Radioware House reliably

Do not opt for the white lights, they're utter useless in rains & will kill you in foggy weather

Thanks Aargee! Will check this out.

Every 2 weeks. 33PSI at front 36 at the rear. There is no loss in air pressure every time we check.

Are you following the 5 tire rotation pattern or 4 tire rotation pattern?

I do 4 tyre rotation. 5 tyre is not done as the spare is a steel wheel.

I do feel some serious flaw for this kind of a worn-out. The reasons can be any of the following or a combination of multiple points

1. Roads are really bad.
2. The driving style needs improvement
3. Air pressure is not maintained properly and not checked routinely.

I cannot digest the fact that a hard compound tyre like Elanzo turning into a bald tyre just in 26K KMs without any of the above points contributing heavily.

Roads are not that bad where we travel, its rather good and we check air pressure at regular intervals.

Point number 2 is the culprit I believe. Like I said above, we tend to have a bit of fun in the twisties.

I suspect the alignment done at MASS. Most of the times they are not accurate. But as you said, you couldn't get it done outside. Anyways, when you change the tyres.. Get the alignment done at a good tyre shop.

If I may, I can add one more culprit and I am sure is a major one - The DDiS 320 motor as compared to Sree73's DDiS 200 motor.

I am sure the extra torque, extra weight and probably a higher average speed added to your enthusiastic or, if I may call it, aggressive style of driving are contributing to the greater wear.

Also, I would like to propose some conspiracy theories Assuming the batches of the tires are different, what is the probability that the material used in the 2 sets are different. i.e Mr. O got a set of Elanzos with softer compound tires?

Also, I am not very sure of how many days Mr. O's car and Sree73's car waited in the open yards of dealer before delivery. Is it possible that Sree73's car was under sun for a longer duration which could have made the rubber harder and resulting in lesser wear?
