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.
