Currently I am getting 15 KM with AC in Bangalore City. How much would it increase after the 1st/2nd Service.

Also would like to know would it be any different if i use Xtrapremium or Speed petrol.

Put Shell normal, you might get more mileage...

it does make a little difference moreover u may get an increase in the mileage after your first service just make sure you drive well during the initial setting period.
get that service a little early don't wait for the correct figure to turn up.

Alto 800cc engine (don't know there was a 1.1 litre as well) should give you 16-17 in city with single driver, and 20-21 on the highway. All figs are with out AC. And with very very conservative driving
[SIZE=2]Just remember mileage depends not only on engine but with many other factors also .. like[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]1) Quality and Quantity of Fuel.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]2) Tyre Pressure[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]3) Road conditions[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]4) Driving styles[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]5) Load in the car.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=2]5) Wind conditions when driving on high way et...etc... etc..[/SIZE]
