My last Trip to Pala and Kottayam(Kerala) through ~70% hilly Roads (156kms) :
Our Vista QJD Returned 18.2kmpl with 100% A/C(blower on the lowest speed).
I feel the Mileage has gone down after 2nd Free Service and the Car at 6500kms .

I mentioned this in my initial ownership experience thread, however, here is my current FE:

Car: i20 CRDi Magna
ODO - 4950 km
FE - Overall 18.2 for the last fill.
Approx 50% City, else on open roads to my office outside city, with moderate traffic.

The previous fill returned 17.6.

Best I got: 23.4 for one tankful - Filled at Calicut, consumed in a couple of 50 km drives within kerala and then trip towards Hyderabad. refilled somewhere on the Blr-Hyd highway. I havent got this anytime before or after, so I am not sure if this can be taken as a realistic result. Perhaps the 90% humidity and the higher air pressure at sea level altitudes helped a bit? no clue. In any case most of my driving in this particular fill was below 100kph, except for the last 100kms.

Otherwise I have observed that FE drops to around 18 on 100+kph runs.

Actually, the cruising speed is just a small part of it. Its how you get to your cruising speed that matters. I use feather light throttle pressure even when i acc. Shift at around 2500-2700rpm. Ease off the acc if i can maintain 100kmph on a downhill section.

If i encounter an uphill, i don't increase throttle pressure. I maintain the same amount of throttle and see how the engine takes it. if the revs go below 2000 rpm, i down shift to a suitable gear, while still maintaining the same amount of throttle.

I tried this with our petrol innova and i got around 14.5-15kmpl with 100% A/C. I think i might have posted the exact figures somewhere on this thread.

I drive a 2005 swift Vxi (40,000 km run)
The drive is smooth. No complaints as such. Although I feel my FE is on the lower side. Do let me know if its normal for Bangalore driving conditions.

FE in city with AC on 50% of the time - 11 to 12.5Kmpl
FE on highways(mostly 100-120Kmph) with AC on 50% of the time-15Kmpl

What do you think Bhpians?
And also, does the FE decrease upon shifting to the highest gear too early(but without engine knocking)? Say keeping the RPM in the range of 1000 to 2000.

Guys, I am a little confused with my i10's tank capacity. Based on the manual it is 35L, I am sure it would take it more than the 35L. Was anyone able to get the exact capacity of i10s tank?

I would also like to know when exactly the low fuel indicator lits up?
