Some times this heat may be too much to handle for the engine itself and it may cease. Similarly, in the case of higher centane count more than normal amount of energy is released which is most of the times released as black plume of unburnt fuel. Due to this the input into the turbo is higher making it kick in at a lower rpm range itself. THIS IS NOT HARADOUS FOR CRDI engines as the recommended range is from 52 - 54 centane. The premium fuels in India have a lot of additives which may be the cause of the sticky thinggy.

@djay - thanks man.

Cheers

i m sorry..but i beg to differ!! octane rating and cetain rating are just the numbers that indicate how long or upto what compression pressure the fuel will resist knocking..it has nothing to do with energy released at all..however the common myth that higher octane means higher power originates because..higher octane means it can be compressed to higher ratios! and usually vehicles having higher comp ratio are big buck engines producing pretty big horses (like a ducati 996,comp ratio13.5:1). or other specific sports vehicles,they need higher octane fuel for there normal running as a nessasity! however when we use premium fuels with higher octane/cetain rating they hardly do any good for power or vehicle as such,because our engines are designed to do good with normal fuel,and ofcourse there comp ratio is already fixed.. but hey there is still a catch..then y do we feel the driveablity is better with primium fuel,yes we do..its because our normal fuel is never 100% pure,air entring is never 60% humid,cylinder head is never free of hot spots,cylinder efficiency is never 100%,infact the trouble starts with normal fuel usually when intake efficiency momentarily gets above 100%,it can get as high as 110% while an intake surge.okie lets cut the too technical crap! so the premium fuel dsnt lets the engine knock in such conditions and also keeps the engine cooler due to additives and stuff..hence the premium fuel...

othervise there is absolutely no use feedding a 97 octane fuel to an engine designed for as low as 88 octane! hope u'll get the idea.

If there was higher energy released in higher ocatne fuel,manufacturers wuld have to specify the engine output at different ratings in adds and commercials.

and turbo or the VGT to be more specific kicks in at a perticular rpm range no matter what rating of fuel u use. please ask for xplaination for anything u havent understood.

Similarly, in the case of higher centane count more than normal amount of energy is released which is most of the times released as black plume of unburnt fuel###

and please will someone explain to me how would already released energy would be converted to unburnt fuel....hey if thats the theory i would add a black smoke collection tank on all the trucks and cars and then convert it into fuel!! thanks for such a visonary theory,it could ultimately help us reduce global energy issues!!

Hi Shyam

A wonderful car to own.

By the way, what average are you getting on city and highway roads respectively?

Hey shyam!

Nice reviews here. I have booked a Getz CRDi myself. On an impulse, I have asked for the Electric Red!

Very heartening to see the FE figures. Especially since I can see that you dont have a very light foot. (150 kmph on the first day???) Hahaha! Which roads do you drive on? Traffic conditions?

Based on your experience, for light footed drivers, would the tyre upgrade be necessary? In my driving experience, I have not gotten addicted to ABS. I can manage pretty decently with dad's Indica V2 on stock tyres.

Also, you must be so cheesed off with the discount, eh? OTR for me is 5.87 lakh

The ICE setup looks nice...and expensive! Planning a very basic setup for mine.

Any issues with the reversing? I felt that the rear windscreen is pretty small. Planning to get a camera+display after using the car for a bit. Just FYI, I have not driven the car at all. Booked without a TD! Dealer is Advaith on Residency Road.

Shyam, are you able to do a double-fold of the rear seats after you've fit the G-sports ?

cheers

I drive on the new airport road highway. My daily drive is from hebbal to indira nagar. Traffic conditions are moderate to very heavy traffic.

If you are light footed please do not change the tyres. Use it and when you feel the grip is inadequet at that time go in for a change.

All you lucky fellas. Happy though because the swift has a very good rival atleast for now.

Any setup would suit the car. The NVH is amazing so even a pin drop could be heard.

No issues with reversing!!
Belive me you dont need a test drive. If anything it makes you want the car immediately :P .

Hi arun,
I have not yet put the seat covers. I will surely give a feedback once that is done.

Cheers.

Awesome in the end the monster gets the recognision that it needs to get. All the newbies to the crdi club are a lucky lot . Hope hyundai comes out with a 1.6 or atleast the 1.5 crdi for the i20. I liked the looks of the i20.

Btw guys I am going in for the green cotton filter very soon .

Its a 1.4 Crdi (77bhp i think) that's getting plonked in the i20 . Just got myself the Road Runner after finding out this information . The staff from Andhra are getting trained on the i20 crdi starting from next week.
