Hi Jazzy,

This can be considered fine for a petrol with a fuel pump, the car in question and fuel is diesel.

Diesels require fuel under high pressure, this may knock out the high pressure pump of the engine if run dry.

I remember this because with the indirect injection engines if you ran out of diesel, one has to pump the manual pump attached to the fuel filters. Not a pleasant thing in the middle of the road. also a very risky thing to do as the brakes and steering run off the engine.

Do note this may even void the warranty. Do check with your manual and do not resort to these suggestions.

2 cents which make a dollar, which then go on and add to make millions.

cheers

Darn, all this talk of FE figures messes with my head!

26 is impressive, 24 is also impressive, 22 is damn good, heck 18 is great! and considering that Diesel is close to Rs.15 cheaper than petrol in Mumbai...

Stop arguing over what is possible! People like me are in awe with our jaws dragging along the floor because we get 8KMPL :(

Swift Diesels give good mileage.
I have got 26 KMPL with 20% AC on highway when I stick to max 90KMPL and not crossing 2200RPM for even gear change. I have come across people who get 22-23 KMPL with 100% AC with speeds around 100 KMPH.

Hi

My friend don't get upset, trust me the spare parts of swift Dzire specially Diesel costs a bomb shell. Being relatively new in the market you cannot predicate how many KM's the engine will last before something major crops up. ( no offence to swift owners).

The glorious figures we also heard for fuel economy about Accent diesel as well. Perhaps now IMHO anybody will go near to that car when it has crossed above 50 k mark.
