I think all 1600 cc cars give more or less the above average. My SX4 too gives 10 kms/L in city and around 14 Kms/L on highways with 100% ac on.

Last april when i went to RTO office, i came across a diesel 800, the diesel engine sourced from diahatsu. This owner told me he is getting an (astonishing) 35 kmpl.

I have come across diahatsu diesels in omni giving 30 km+ so i think this cannot be so much far from the truth.

I would also like to know when exactly the low fuel indicator lits up?
The low fuel indicator lits-up with roughly 8ltrs fuel in tank. This is assuming the tank capacity to be 35L. Once i ran 2 kms after low fuel warning and the tank-full gulped 27.xx liters. I don't think the tank capacity is more than 35L. One thing is for sure though, the fuel gauge is not linear. In a linear gauge each quadrant would mean 9lts in i10. Yesterday the needle was pointing to middle of last quadrant - means there should be roughly 5ltrs of fuel. But tank-full only took 25.2 ltrs.

Santro Xing XL 2005 (second-hand)

Location: 100% City (Mumbai - Andheri East/Vile Parle East)
AC: 85% on (put it off when it gets too cold on setting 1, switch it on when it gets warm)
Commute: 5-6 kms one way to the office, 50% bumper to bumper traffic.
Driving style: Sedate. Switch it off at long traffic lights (after reaching engine operating temperature), and upshift at 10, 20, 40 and 50kph)
Mileage: 10.87 kmpl (tankful method using auto-cutoff, at the same pump)

Tracked on (Anoop's Santro (Hyundai Santro) | Fuelly)

I am trying to improve the mileage, but don't seem to have luck. The Modi Hyundai engineer was able to extract 15+kmpl on a 19km drive in Saturday traffic with 100% AC.

Any tips or hands-on observation/tution would be very welcome.
