Thanks guys, appreciate the positive words.
@ MileCruncher: Sir, you are correct, Moby almost got stolen a day after I took delivery.

The Bolero has now completed 4500 kms, we,(gsferrari and I) just returned from a Mumbai-Bangalore-Chennai-Bangalore-Mumbai road trip that got me from 1600km odo reading to 4500kms in less than one week. We also brought back a Yamaha MT-01 1670 cc superbike(Thor) from Bangalore which gsferrari has finally been able to possess! Pics etc will follow in a new thread, a sampler here.

My first service is still 500 kms away, but I will not wait. On the first leg of the Mumbai-Bangalore drive, we drove on one tank upto Hubli, and with some weight reduction, we could have done close to 900kms on one 60ltr full tank of diesel! The Bolero can comfortably coast at 100-110 kph on the NH, and is pretty comfortable with some load in the rear to sponge the leaf springs. More on the drive, the car and the trip in a separate thread as early as possible with pictures I love life zipping by at a sedate 100kph, and am now finding standstill quite boring.

Cheers,

900 kms for 60 kms is really good for such a vehicle. Please post more details of your procurement. How much did it cost on road and your buying experience. It would be help full for other people.

No worries Srikant, I created the new thread as I wanted the Bolero buying, ownership review details to be separate from the Gypsy thread. It will be easier for others to search and locate.

FYI, I have been getting minimum 760 kms for every 50 ltrs in the city with A/C on always. My commute is 40% highway, 60% city traffic in Mumbai between Thane and Bandra daily, a round trip of 70 kms. I refuel at close to 50 ltrs used, so the fuel economy is around 15.2. However, please note that the vehicle has only recently completed 4500 kms. It should stabilise after the first service, and I will post in the other thread my next few full tank figures.

Cheers,
