If its BBC top gear, then they are speciying it in imperial gallon,not US gallon - in which case it comes down to 22 kmpl.

64 mpg (US gallon)=27 kmpl
64 mpg (imperial gallon)=22 kmpl

Winding roads were no problem at all. Infact i quite enjoyed the light steering, contrary to what most people felt here! maybe i'm just used to the NHC steering!

F.E of about 19.6 km/lit from mine on highway(punjab....bad roads) and around 17 in the city with a/c.
I am really proud of my buy!
the FE will improve after some running partizan. This i am getting 18-19 on the highway, and 15-16 in the city. 22 was just one time!

Can you get into details of that again for me and other CRDi owners here.

In all gears we find these lag zones below 1.9k rpm for our i20. Which one is recommended for a better FE.

1> Wait for Turbo kick untill rpm touches 1.9k without pressing accelerator or clutch further down.

2> Pulling RPM up by revving constantly while releasing clutch completely. This really takes long enough to leave yourself back on the road.

3> Instead of waiting for turbo kick shift down to lower gear and get going.

4> Pushing clutch lill down with constant revving gives a up jerk in the RPM to overcome this lag zone quickly. This involves some grunting by the car.

Though I do all this depending on the situation I prefer 3 & 2 as suggested by BHPians here.

I also heard there wont be much fluctuation in diesel FE by various driving styles. Whatever tell us what is best recommended mode for better FE. Also add up any tips and hints you know here that leads to better FE.

During my usual driving, its around 1.5k rpm, and it has enough power to move thru traffic. If the roads hape scope for some overtaking, i keep the engine at around 1.9k, so when i stomp on the pedal at any point of time, the turbo kicks in immedeately, and i'm gone!

I dunno if this is the best method, but it works for me!

And after 1200 what running in - shunning in??? Give it the boot like she'll never have it again and have fun!
He he! Gadgets are one of the reasons why i changed my booking from the getz to the i20, but hey, you still have that nuclear reactor under the hood na?

Btw, the running in business is over, i started flooring it, and i must say its damn great fun! It pulls cleanly till over 4K rpm, and the handling is great too! Brakes are awesome thanks to discs aall round and abs!

When i do this in my getzi i get 17-18kmpl . So if you could check on this and post it would be useful. I can vouch for the fact that you could get around 22kmpl on the i20 Crdi.

@all - is the i20 a gen 2 crdi?

Shyam
Shyam, will do it sometime and update you. Just got out of 'running in' mode, and havin a blast! In no mood to dop FE figures soon!

I thought the running in was over when we streched the legs till 130kmph last week in the city , amazing handling and superbly composed at such speeds in such uneven surfaced roads. Ohh the Brakes they are just too good.

How would you compare the I20 performance with Punto MJD? Is it worth that 1 lakh extra or nice to have?

No offense to punters here, but actually there is no comparison between the two. Even the swift can't come close to the i20 when pushed hard. Regarding the extra cost, when you floor the pedal, and the turbo kicks in, the feeling is priceless!

Agreed. I cant help but wonder what a pete's box would do to the i20.

The numbers read 110 bhp / 265 nm of torque for about Rs. 31000....

Hey!I also completed my 1500kms and would be getting it serviced for the first time.
FE is something i can't get over about this car.An average of about 17 in the city and this time on a trip from chandigarh to new delhi i got a whopping 21.6km/lit.Apart from that,its stock music system is also very satisfactory(Atleast for me).
Guys,should i get the engine oil changed for the first service?What else should i take care of?Kindly help.
