If the sun is facing the windscreen, yes the AC does seem to be mild. Perhaps a windscreen sunfilm will help. There shouldnt be a problem for the rear seats though.

It a loose water exit pipe for the AC cooling coil, check yourself based on the drops or go to an A.S.S.

Make a visual inspection for a hole without any screws, if not just store the screw for later.

Are you sure your calculation is correct.... im certainly not jealous but i wonder how such a figure can be achieved with a 2 ton vehicle.
Secondly, if your calculation is correct then maybe you drove with a very light foot with extremely well controlled gearing, braking, acceleration, speeds, etc.
Please do share how one can achieve such a phenomenal mileage which is in Indica diesel & swift ddis territory.

yes my calculation is almost correct .. I thought it could also be because of the altitude difference between the two places , my average speed was 80 km.


I had done a check for the empty holes but could not find it , anyway i have preserved it ...

Thats really good. What were the driving conditions like. I men the speed whether the AC was on/off, was it a highway or hilly terrain etc.

Hey jays,
I too managed an average of 18 infact 18.03 on the BEAR.
But as you said keeping a light foot is the key, It helps a lot.

go through my post http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/test-d...tml#post739666

Try out the Xtramile premium, suprised with the FE I got and filled up again, and yet again this time it looks above the average 10-12 kpl mark that comes out with the other brands/combinations of fuel - and someone who is addicted to turbo whine is ain't a light foot either.

hi guys..

I dont always stick light foot driving .. may be I was lucky to get such mileage ,

the road was quite good.. maybe on an avg about 100 /900 km the road was bad the trip and it was light gradient (not so hilly)

Default 5000 km done got mileage of 13.8 km /lit

Hi guys,
just finished with one more trip with my safari,
this time i wanted to check the fuel efficiency without any errors.
got the vehicle filled to the top of the fuel tank with turbojet , filled it again to the top to check the actaul fuel consumption .
go 13.8 km /lit with A/C(level 3) all the time, 4 people road condition 70 % highway , top speed during the trip 125km/hr avg about 75 km/hr

Noticed few things .
1. during traffic jams/ dead slow moving traffic burning smell from the bonnet not sure if it is anything to do with ac it will remain only for a minute or two.( noticed it 3 times in the last 2.5-3 k run)
2.water drops /dew on the bottom outer surface of the fron glass (around the wipers ) - is it a leakage from A/C
