Angry Please help....FE down drastically after II servicing

Guys..pl. gimme clues....

Just done second servicing of my Swift and average is down from 15-16 to 11-12 in city ......

After servicing, I noticed that pickup is vastly improved and I was in heaven. Banged down immediately when the fuel indicator was racing with speedo...

I suspect that they have reconfigured ECU or done some clutch settings or changed other parameters which improves on pickup but hits of FE ?????

I am not a rich man and dont want that extra pickup but want FE restored...please help before I get down on Maruti guys.....

Even my Swift's pickup improved after the second service... but there wasn't any effect on the FE. It stayed in the 12-13km range.
Probably the current heat spell in Pune is playing trick.
BTW, how did you get 15-16 in city earlier? Where did you fill up?

Ask MASS to retune your car for mileage and less for pickup - they typically retune the engine for mileage/pickup based on their read of the car. No cause for worry though.

recheck your mileage after another tank full.dont panic.
if the mileage is still poor go back to the service station.they'll correct it.
