Have been practising these for my i10 AT since 2012.

How much is the i10 AT returning in city conditions ? My first calculated tankful returned 10.55 kmpl , with careful driving , 100% AC , and about 1 hour of first gear crawl everyday.

Sajo, mine hunts between 8 & 9. I dump in 30 ltrs of fuel and this thing covers 270 280 kms on a good day with me in good mood. When things are bad, i thrash it and the distance goes down to 260.

Paying the price for convenience.

Update : Got the first (free) service over the weekend. Took an appointment at Deccan Honda for their "express" service, and was out of there in about 3.5 hours. Which is pretty long , considering that it was express. As it was mainly an inspection , it was more of an item to be ticked in the warranty checklist.
The odo stood at ~750 kms , and the car seems to have "learned" my style of driving. Or the other way round. The shifts are much crisper now almost as if on a cue, and the FE has gone marginally up. I am getting about 11.5kmpl after the second tankful, not too far off from the MID figure of 11.7kmpl. My left leg thanks me everyday when there is a 1 hour or so first gear crawl to and from office.

Hello Sajo
Hows the Brio treating you ?
Mine has done juat 1200 Km and i seem to have started relishing the agility of the car. The engine ia more eager now and i think gear shifts are smoothing up with time. Fuel efficiency stands at 16.8 from MID. Best part is that people don't expect Brio to outpace them many times and get surprised when they see such a small car gathering paces.☺

Hey Zoom_vroom , the Brio is going good. Ours too has just ~1500 KMs on the odo , and the engine is simply another animal past 3000 rpm. The kickdowns on the AT are smooth and quick. The Fuel efficiency too is up to 12.5 KMPL as per the MID , which would be around 11.xx in real world. It is currently being used for very short hops of 2 Kms one way, so I expect the FE to drop a bit.

My wife's Brio AT bought in June '14 displays around 10-12 in city traffic in Pune. Drives outside Pune to Mumbai etc. display about 16-19kms per litre. Once I tried driving as per the ECO indicator and it returned about 21kmpl...

Couple of things I do

-Air pressure is about 2 PSI higher than whats mentioned on the sticker
- I change the air filter element every 4-5 k Kms.
- As someone earlier mentioned, you have be easy on the throttle and let the car glide itself most of the times

Completed 4 months uneventful (in a very good way) ownership period. The car has not been used much because I am the only driver for both cars for the past couple of months.

My FE too has settled in the 12.1x KMs range. I do the Hinjewadi run, where the traffic is horrendous, to say the least, and many times results in atleast half an hour of first gear crawl each way. In a similar cycle , my Swift returns about 14.xx kmpl. I drive in the "eco" mode most of the times though.
I too overfill the tires by a couple of PSI , but that is because I find the ride to be slightly better that way.

Thats good to hear. My Brio is just about 2000 clicks.It is used sparingly. I am not sure how but my City shoes better efficiency compared to Brio. It can be that i push the Brio a lot more compared to the City or the mileage may improve post 2nd service.
