Hi All

I am back with the FE of my i10 Automatic..

it has given me 9.73 to be precise with full time A/C only in B-B city driving(during office hours).

I have filled in the petrol & started driving..this gave me around 286.5 where in filled the petrol again and it took 29.44 ltr for her stomach to be full ))

Looks like its a good FE.

Note: the car was driven by me only and i had used '2' & over drive OFF for sometime to show my friends the power of car.

Check out pics of the car in the next post

Car is looking very cute with those alloys. which make is that?

Your FE is pretty good for Chennai traffic. After 1st service you get more.

super alloys deepan! I like the red accents on black. Try to paint your brake calipers red!

No seat covers & mud flaps yet?

also, why did you go for 185/60R13 tires? they lower your ride with lesser sidewall height, and gives more speedo error percentage.

try the tire size calculator Car Bibles : The Wheel and Tire Bible Page 2 of 2

The ideal upsize in 13" is 175/70R13. 185/60R14 is a more precise one.

Thanks Mech.

yeah i am looking forward for atleast 10-10.5 after 1st service..

i think that will be good for an AT in city traffic.

About alloys - i picked them LAL enterprises(in royapettah, near ADMK office) and i think its SPEEDO

You can get good quality seat covers in red and beige combo - just need to shop around a bit.

Believe me, seat covers are almost a must with any car almost as soon as they are bought, especially with beige seats. Something spills over (tea/coffe) or some kid drops a chocolate on your seat - it will be a pain to remove the stain. With seat covers its easy - just wipe with a moist cloth (for leather/PU) or wash (fabric)!
