1.2 Kappa is not as fuel efficient as the iRDE. I have been hearing figures in the range of 11-12 only. So around 10 for an automatic sounds about fine.

thanks everyone for the comments, hyundai says to keep the front tyre pressure as 35 and rear 33, the stock tyre from them is 155.80.13 and now i have 175.70.13 and all 4 tyres i keep pressure of 30. so i guess this is reason i have not been getting good mileage right ? should i move to 33 in all tyres is it safe ? going for a tankfull today please advise

Jesal,

What I would do is to first set exactly what Hyundai has recommended for the front and rear tires irrespective of the upgrade, fill a tankful and check mileage. I'm sure you will get a better fuel mileage than the present, assuming all other factors remain the same.

As a next step, to decide whether that is the optimum pressure, I would email my tire manufacturer and present my case. I would ask them to recommend pressures to me considering the car and the upgraded tire size. That answer should help you settle at your final values!

Warm regards,
Sandeep Menon

ok 2500 kms done on the car. the mileage is around 9 or 10 max. the tyres are kept at 33psi now instead of the 30 psi i kept for 2 months. the mileage did go up. planning to put 35psi for one tank and try that too. hyundai reckons 35 in front and 33 in the back. i love the car, the sunroof rules.

the first 3-5 tanks are a pain. drive around 1500-2000 kms, i drove the first 2000 kms on 30 psi. then i read on the car that hyundai reckons 35 front and 33 back so decided to get 33 all over. now i feel its gone up to 9 or 10 the mileage.

Filled up 28 PSI of nitrogen gas as per the guy who fitted my alloys and tyres. Getting a FE of around 10-11 KMPL. When I asked him "Don't I need to fill 33 PSI according to the Hyundai Owner's manual" for which he replied "Since this is nitrogen, 28 is enough". Seems there is no single PSI for i10

Is there a difference between ordinary air you fill up at the petrol bunks and the nitrogen one? How often do we need to fill ordinary air/nitrogen?

Noticed a non critical bug in the Asta AT ECU firmware. The airbag and the seatbelt lights blink and go off last when the car is started. What I noticed is that if you forget to put seatbelt at begining, the seatbelt light does not continue blinking after the self test. If you now put on and remove the seatbelt, the seatbelt light comes on. So at start, it forgets to check the seatbelt switch as part of the self test.
Did anyone else observe this.
