The RVM is practical and looks neat. Nice looking seat covers and good color choice. Black is my fav and I love it almost anywhere on the car.

What do you plan to do for the Left ORVM? I'd feel handicapped driving without it.
Are you looking for alloys?

I paid the original price PLUS Insurance PLUS Registration PLUS Road Tax (Karnataka) TOTAL Rs.2,23,000/-. Today I drove my NANO from Mysore to Bangalore - 160 KMS from my place to my sister's place in Bangalore. I took 3 hrs 05 minutes! Good, I think. It was a non-stop drive. Only me and my husband.

Well, Aggressive driving - AN ABSOLUTE NO. Journey was comfortable.

Hi guys! Checked the mileage and my Nano is giving 21 kms per litre in Highways if I maintain the speed between 50 and 70 kms. I am giving my Nano for its first service tomorrow. If its mileage improves, then it's great!

If you stick to the speed restriction of 50 to 70 km, driving in the 4th gear, you will get good mileage figures. I got 19.5

If you drive above 80 and even touch 100 on a highway, the FE drops to around 15

May I assume that the said efficiency is with AC? And with two people on board?

Do you fill to auto stop or to the brim? If the latter, is it easy to do so?

It was without AC and with 3 (including driver) PLUS luggage (2 suitcases). I filled petrol to the brim. But, then, it was not easy to fill it to the brim. After the auto stop, it takes up to about 6 minutes to fill to the brim: And the tank takes almost 2.5 lts!!! So, you can't fill to the brim in rush hours.

I never fill the tank to the brim, as it is not recommended.

Well, I wanted to check the mileage. Otherwise, I don't. Thanks

The FE is amazing. But the speeds to achieve it are a bit low. A bit difficult to achieve it for me. Cant imagine myself doing 60 on mum-pune exp way with overloaded trucks overtaking me all the time

Without AC as the weather is cool?

It is interesting! But, it is not easy to check the mileage. The best way to do it, I believe, is to fill it to the brim and then after a few kilometers' drive, again fill it to the brim and calculate. Mine is going for its first service tomorrow and after that I hope to get the `IDEAL 18 KMS WITH AC ON' in city conditions. On highways, I am sure it would do 22 KMS with AC ON and that should be excellent. I shall keep you posted with the developments.

That would be a tough thing to achieve, it would entirely depend upon the conditions in that 'city'. I would expect no more than in my town under my normal driving environment.

Hi trrk! Mine is giving 17 k with AC on in city after the first service. One thing is bothering me right from day 1. It appears TATA is not supplying sufficient spares of petty items. My front door panel is a bit lose and they have not been able to fix it on account of lack of `clips'!!! They have asked me to go over there tomorrow again. The dealer says he would probably change the door panel itself!!! Let's see.

That's very good.

What would be your daily driving and the pattern?

I am sure 'clips' should have been available as they are not specialised items. But then certain 'small' things are never easy to get them as spares. They are not supposed to be lost or replaced often.

All the best.

Driving pattern? Oh! Erratic. There isn't anything specific, work or place, to commute. We stay put at home for days. And when we travel, we do it anywhere and everywhere without any specific plan. The long and short drives were undertaken were done with the purpose of checking the mileage.
