Used to live in Nainital around 1990-94.
At that time, 800 and Premier Padmini were considered too weak to be used on Hill roads.
Ambessador / Jeeps were used as most of the Taxis and Private cars..
Have things changed with MPFI?

It gives me a lot of comfort knowing that I have been underestimating Alto. But I am now looking forward to an interesting journey. It is still about 2 months away but the wheels have started spinning. I would have done with my second servicing by that time.
I have also heard from friends that I should maintain slightly lower tyre pressure while driving on hill roads. The manufacturer advises 30 and for hill roads, my friend suggest 28. Is there any merit in this? What are the pros and cons for this?
