I will try doing that. I did TD on Euro III and booked, now I got info that I will get Euro IV. I spoke to the sales guy. He says that drivability will not be compromised. He says motor would be more efficient.

Hust waiting for the delivery, cannot wait further

If you are driving in B2B traffic on 1st, 2nd or 3rd gear it will yield 14 - 15 kmpl, if route is not congested it is possible to get 17 - 18 kmpl ( II and III Tier cities), but not possible in Big Cities, practically it will be 14 - 15 kmpl, On highway I have got 22.77 kmpl max, while in city (Pune) around 14 - 15 kmpl with 100% AC on.

IMO, mileage of a car is calcualted basis normal road driving (and not in back to back traffic?) and as such anything above 17-18kmpl is considered good FE. And you achieved 22.77 on highway which is very very good

When delivery of your car is due?
Check with them if they have a Euro IV car on display /TD, so that you can try drive it few kms prior you get /drive your own car

One more gadget added to the list of accessories which can help me to
check the tyre pressure of my Fiesta.

The Device is called 'Solar Digital Tire Gauge'
Checked the device and it is working fine (now I found that each tyre of my car has different pressure which means I need to attend it immediately)

@ nairrk,

Thats a cool device. Need more info abt manufacturer, availability, cost, procurement ways. I suppose Solar means no need of battery, right? Is the tyre pressure shown in psi or Kg/cm2 or both. Any word/pdf docu of the same would be useful. I guess you would be using it to cross check the pressure after or during filling.

The model I got was CC-106A
There is another model CC-106B with 'TALKING" means Numerical Voice will be followed by the pressure reading.
I didnt know there are two models available (It was not specified in the sellers ad), but in the instruction card recieved (from the manufacturer) alongwith the device says about the two models. Hence I came to know about this Talking model.

@nairrk
That tyre gauge looks SUPER. I have an Airmaster, also in red, but it looks tacky. Gets the job done though.
BTW, what is that ruler thingy with cm on one side, in on the other & the knob in the centre? Is it to check tyre tread depth?

Yes, seems you are correct.
In the instruction card - it is written as ''Depth Ruler for Tyre Tread''.

Nairji, great tool..am going to order one. The gauge with the air pump is not digital and hence difficult to estimate the correct pressure.

Meanwhile, how new is your "My new black Ford Fiesta" - time to give some touch to the title I think.

Yes sanjay - the air pump gauge is not digital so we need to pump air-stop,then use pressure gauge to check the pressure and again pump air etc- you have to do some excercise till you get the required pressure on the tyres. But for emergency it is good to have both these devices on board.

Have ordered another tool for my Fiesta:

Car Cleaning and Polishing Brush

This brush can be connected with the water hose to the bottom of the brush and easily wash the car.

may be good/easy to wash the rim without scratching the hand anywhere?

Will upload photographs once I recieve the product.
