I don't think we have any diesel <10lacs redlining above 4500 rpm.

Mileage review

I had tanked up my car as soon as I got it with a total of 41 litres of regular diesel and y day I again get the car filled up 34.5 litres and I had traveled 367 km and this translates to a mileage of 10.6, which I feel is much lower when compared to the others. Well I havent been too light on the gas. I will be trying to keep the rpm at a max of 2000 rpm for this tank full to see if there is any improvement in mileage.

I get around 14 - 15 in city and highway driving together. I have got more than 15 on one occasion. Maintaining 2000rpm shouldn't lower your mileage so much.
Anything below 12 is less for this engine I think. Having said that, don't expect too much from it also.

2000rpm is too low. keep it between 1800-2500. its not going to spoil the mileage much. its also better for the engine, cos u dont lug it around too much.
what gears are you using? is this mostly city driving?

Na I have been able to take the car thru all gears within 2000 rpm without the slightest knock heard or felt (4th gear it manages 80 kmph @ 2000 rpm) so I can go to 5th gear at speeds of 65 even before the rpm needle hits 2000 on 4th. The manual suggests not to exceed 3000 and I tried to keep it within 3000 on all gears and I got the above mileage so wanted to see if there will be an improvement if I go a little bit slower atleast till the first service is done. Yes mentioned mileage is 100% city with 95% a/c on.

My Getz consistently covers around 620kms in one tank full. Usually it comsumes around 41-43 litres in every full tank..
My driving includes 50kms of 100kmph(+) driving on every alternate day.. Thanks to the expressway.

Wow thats kewl hope mine turns out to give me a mileage like your car does. I am still running in my car so hope for some mileage improvement. You should see Bangalore city traffic where one has to be on 1st and 2nd gear all the time

With the figures people have quoted on the mileage of their Getz CRDi, I think I have to worst. I take it the other way my Swift Petrol used to give 10.5 kmpl consistently and it would cost me Rs. 2200 for ~ 35 litres of petrol and the Diesel Getz with around the same mileage costs me ~Rs. 1200 for the same amount of Diesel, well I still save Rs.1000 everytime I fill 'er up.

Dont let that upset you Iv seen people loosing sleep over FE related issues.

Even in my case I seem to get varying mileage and comparatively lower than others. Iv seen less than 14 on occasion too. Tyre pressure played a HUGE role.

Though IV almost always driven at BOOST. And with A/C which means I enjoy my drives. Rather than scrounging and staying below 2k to milk a few more KMPL.

Lastly you need to do a couple of highway runs and let that baby open up slow and steady. Dont worry till the 5000km mark.
