If you have an indicator on your car wait for it to turn off. I am not familiar with the Xing's mechanism, so I guess a glance at the user manual would be good. If there is no such indicator, then you can start off straight away. But as a precaution, it is always better to wait.

MoralFibre - Too good dude! LOL

No wonder Fiat decided to relaunch the GTX as a sport....

Default Starting Delay

its the time delay for the fuel pump to build up sufficient injector pressure as well as for ECU start up.

its simply because Palio got a 32 bit BRAIN.
and of course brainless cars does not have this delay.

you can hear the sound of the fuel pump runing and it stops 1 sec after the injector light goes off.

Its better to start the engine after de light goes off. it traffic if de engine stops accidently, its not a problem. the car will start.

Drive safe

SREE

Since when have the Palio and the Swift done 9 and 11.5 sec 100kmh runs? If I remember, both take around 12 secs.
