My i20 (1.2) has FE of 12.63 for the 1st 100 kms (city driving) and 14.65 (highway driving for 350 kms). Used petrol from Shell pump, where the qty and quality is assured.

Got my Red i20 Asta 6 months back. The odo stands at about 6.5k kms today.
I have rarely got above 10 kmpl, but then my calculating method is extreme.

When the fuel indicator lights up, and I have driven around 20-30 kms post that, then only do I go to the pump. Then I ask the attendant for a top-up. I personally stand there and monitor. I ensure that he keeps filling till it seems it will almost flow out. Usually I end up filling anywhere between 40-45 litres. Infact once I even filled 46 ltrs (ya 46 thats right!) And I get anywhere between 410-440 kms for this. So net net, this gives me around 10 kmpl.

Lightbulb Is this the right way to calculate mileage?

Took my i20 on a drive to Coimbatore from Chennai.Filled at Porur Shell outlet until auto cut off.Reset the tripmeter to 0.

Refilled again at Aambur HP outlet(Its my regular outlet on my drives to Coimbatore) again until auto cut off.It took in 9.67 ltrs and I had travelled 197 kms till then.

Drove then on with mixed feelings wondering wether I should believe this or not.Anycase,the drive was mostly on 6 laned roads and was always cruising - no sudden gear changes,no sudden brakes.

The car is in Cbe now.Will again test it during the return run to Chennai

This is more like an approximate method, at the same time did you also check onboard instantaneous FE. If they match then you are almost sure on the highway mileage figure.

My driving is only within Bombay city limits, but I would not say complete bumper to bumper. Also my driving style is not exactly suited for fuel efficiency

Seems to be i20 is clocking less mileage on an average of city & highway drive.

The best method is tank full to tank full cut-off.Never rely on FE figures on MID, those calculation are different.
Try filling the fuel in COCO pumps only & also check for the right tire pressure.
Lets wait till the run-in period is completed.

We expect a good returns from a Hatch with 1.4L.

Pls keep updating the FE figures,should be helpfull for fellow bhpians.

I feel auto cut off to auto cut-off consumption method is reliable among those listed here for FE measurement. I guess it is reasonable for i20 to deliver 15kmpl in highways.. Lets wait and see.


Fighter_82, I bought the parking sensor for Rs:3800.
Hyundai dealer had quoted 5K+ for the same.
I will post some photos for you soon.

Default i20 vs Rits

Yesterday I drove Ritz Vxi petrol.
Now,more or less I know why i20 is priced 2lacs above it.

let me share some of my feelings,

Build quality did not matter until i occupied the driving seat. Interior quility-plastic/parking break lever design/ Dash/Steering Wheel -is greatly compromised
Space is less in comparison-cramped.
performance is ok; but I like i20's gear ratios.
Steering: inferior to i20 again
I loved the way Ritz happend to tackle bumps;slightly better than i20 I guess.
power window motion was not at all elegant

Featurs, knobs...interior of Rits is not refined at all when compared to i20.
it is not as good as i20 to drive as well
i20 is much much refined and carefully crafted I felt on the driving seat of Ritz...but it costs less too.

Thumbs up

Wish Hyundai had given separate control (open/close) for left and right foldable mirrors.[/quote]



Totally agree, I dont even use the left ORVM.

I own an i20 Magna and have covered ~5.5K KMs in 6 months. My daily office commute takes 45 mins to cover 12 kms. I am getting FE between 10 to 11 (minimal AC). Did a short trip to hogenekkal with 4 people and light luggage plus AC on all the time. Recorded an FE of 15.

Couple of Qs
When i start the car in the morning the engine revs upto 1.5-1.7 before settling just around 1. Anyone seen this behaviour yet? Isnt that high?

Recently, it started letting out a whining noise when driving in the 1st gear (bumper to bumper traffic). Any take on what could be the problem? I noticed this happening after the second free service completed last month.

The engine revving in the morning is due to the auto choke i guess because the engine is cold.It doesn't recur the rest of the day when the engine is warm .It happens in my i20 too.Don't know about the whining noise.

Thanks for the reply motorhead.

Forgot to add that the whining noise is coming from the clutch. Noticed yesterday that the same noise is coming even when reversing the car. I will have it checked up this weekend.
