This is always in the city running during peek traffic in heavy b2b conditions and no highway runs at all
Single driver with no load other than an laptop 100% AC
Its always a single driver only during the weekends maybe 2 people are there.

Don't go by the DTE of the figo. Use the tankfull method, I use an app called fuel pro, last average was 12.8 kmpl on my figo diesel

I'll try to limit myself to double-digit speeds next time, and check again. But I do know if is a tough proposition, given the addictive FTD factor the car offers.
Maybe you did lot of spirited driving . I haven't done lot of highway trips on my car yet but during Mysore trip once I got about 17kmpl and I did rip the car a bit wherever I got the chance and there was lot of braking due to usual high traffic on that highway. I usually dont drive with average as priority.

I use similar app called mileage. You are right that DTE is not exact measure since its dynamic and keeps on changing based on driving style.

Any petrol figo owner knows how much fuel is still left in the tank after the DTE reaches 0??

Zero. DTE calculations are quite optimistic. When you tank up the DTE would read 600 kms but in actual it would run only less than that.

Extending the same logic, your fuel reservoir should be in negative

I never go by the DTE - Always use the tank full method and the 8-9 figure is by this method only.

Well Once the DTE showed 0 and i went on driving for another 5-7 KM before the thought of pushing the car scared me. Pulled over to the nearest fuel station and refueled

I would imagine a couple of liters, but I would never risk the fuel gauge (not DTE), going below the last quarter mark.
Hassles of air getting caught (mine is a Diesel Figo), and the running the chance of particles getting into the fuel filter.

I guess i will have to fill up the tank and then calculate myself. My honda city has 8 liters after the DTE reaches zero. We hardly use the figo and once i tried filling up the tank and waiting for the DTE to reach zero but mom filled some more fuel in-between and ruined my readings... guess i will have to keep a stricter watch next time.

Doesn't the noise arise when you hit just the brake ?( i.e without applying the clutch . )

What kind of noise?
When the clutch is fully pressed and the car is idling there is a slight sound change this is normal.


Gave the figo for the 4th service - 30,000 KM.

Labour for service 1050
Wash - 275

+ other things.

Is this normal to be charging for a wash ? I dont remember paying for a wash during the previous services.

No it's not okay for them to charge for wash. It's part of the service, unless they are doing / you have asked for something additional e.g. waxing, polishing etc.

Only when you use your free service coupon, you are entitled to free labor/ washing etc., At 30,000Kms am sure you have exhausted all your free service coupons.

Washing also involves labor and hence most companies these days charge even for water wash. Am not sure about Ford but Toyota does it.

Lastly 275 bucks is a very nominal charge for water wash. Most roadside water service stations charge anywhere between 250 to 450 bucks.

I don't think it is normal. Whenever I have serviced my car, the water wash always came free. I don't know whether they had added the car wash charges to something else though. I have serviced my car at Goa, kairali ford kochi, Malayalam ford kochi and the ford dealer at Poonamalee, chennai.
