There is no issues at all during highway runs, I have seen 14-15 kmpl regularly. However, there is no idling issues at all, sometimes I do feel 2nd gear is not pulling as it should, not very sure though, it may even be my perception. The car is 2004 model but has run close to 17,000 kms only.

Another ploblem I face with this car is once in every 3 or 4 weeks, the battery goes completely dead. Got this checked whereever I could, battery seems to be fine, electricals were said to be fine by Concorde motors, I suspect a leak somewhere though. Can anyone from Bangalore please suggest where I can get the electricals of this Fiat checked, unlike other cars they seem to be unusually complex.
In fact my probem seems to be the exact opposite. I get normal mileage in city bu it does not increase on highways.

About the battery. There surely should be some leak. First check in any extra fittings like autocop, stereo etc. If you have a boot light ensure that it is switching off when you close the boot.

Mileage problem was side effect of the RPM issue. Once the RPM issue is resolved, mileage problem is never seen. The resolution for RPM was to do air leak for Clutch.

I had the power issue with my Adventure for a while and last month it felt worse, before i started to speculate the cause one fine day the injector lights came on and d it was the injectors...i was told(by ***)the culprit was the "Ignition Coil".

Yea it took a while to get it but the wait was worth it now the car has more torque and accelerates smoothly.

One advice to all Fiat owners, never get any job done outside i mean non authorized place, most of the times they use a fake part which wont last at all!

And it is most likely that those mechs wont have any clue about this car...
