1. Does turbo help in improving FE?
2. If I have to ride between 80-90 for long distance, would it be better if I ride in 5th gear (2000+ rpm, turbo kicked in) or in 6th gear (2000- rpm, no turbo) - purely in terms of FE.

Of course, I can do a quick run and experiment for point 2 above, but I'm looking for a theoretical answer.

Thanks

I'm afraid you have it quite backwards. If the turbo is active, it will consume quite a bit more fuel. Use it for acceleration and then stay out of turbo range while cruising.

Turbo making boost = more air being forced into cylinders = more fuel needs to be injected to maintain stoichiometric ratio and ensure proper combustion. This is what results in additional power compared to N/A engine of same size.

Final update on this issue. Over the period of a few days the problem aggravated and I had to take the car to HASS again. As per them, the injector had gone kaput and the estimated cost of repair was to the north of 45K. As the car was out of warranty, hence took a chance, went to the nearby FNG and they advised me to use injector cleaner additives and see, which should solve the issue. Purchased a bottle of Liqui Moly Diesel Purge and used it on a tank full of diesel. Finally, I'm happy to report that the issue is resolved. Did a trip of around 3K kms without any issues. Now I'm regularly using Liqui Moly Super Diesel and I wish I knew this earlier .

Here is the video to show the extent of issue I was facing:

Got the service estimate for my i20 Diesel which has clocked 50K kms from Lakhshmi Hyundai- Is this justified ? I feel the Labour charges are on the higher side. Thoughts please?

Attachment 2273801
Labour Detail point 5 & 6 is robbery.
Rest of the scheme of charges seem ok to me.
The charge for engine oil is on the higher side.
Try visiting/taking estimate from any other authorized service centre in nearby city.

Dear Bhpians,

I own a 2016 Elite I20 sportz. Due to pandemic I was away in my hometown for the major part of 2021 (9 months). Upon returning I took the car for service and the service advisor informed me that there is minor wobbling in the steering wheel which is due to flat spots in the tyre as it was parked for 9 months. I was told to drive around in the city and the flat spots should disappear. I did drive around for around 500kms in a mixture of city and short highway drives but didnot notice any wobbling issue and so i thought that the issue is resolved. In my recent drive to Kerala there was considerable wobbling and the steering was pulling to the left. So i took it to Hyundai service in Paravoor and they said the tyres need to be changed. I told him to do wheel balancing and alignment so that I can reach bangalore and do the needful.

Current situation is that the steering pull is no longer there but the wobbling issue continues. The tyres still have around 7-8k kms in them but I do not want to take any risk. Need your expert suggestions

Tyre dimension : 185/70 R14 non alloy
Tyre brand : Goodyear assurance (dealer provided at the time of purchase)

I am planning to change the front 2 wheels first followed by the rear wheels later.
Questions:
1) Is changing the front 2 tyres only recommended
2) which brand is best. The current set of Goodyear Assurance has some road noise especially on concrete surfaces.
3)If i choose a different brand then the front 2 wheels will have different brand wheels compared to the back. Hope that will not be an issue
4)Should I stick to Hyundai service center or explore some online/offline shops. Need suggestions

Please change all the tyres as soon as possible. Tyres are consumables which are meant to be changed anyway and neglecting this would just lead to compromising your steering rack and suspension leading to much more expensive problems down the lane. You can buy from any tyre shop, I do not recommend buying from hyundai dealer which would be marked-up for no reason.

I upgraded the Engine oil to Shell Helix Ultra 5W-40 and immediately noticed drop in FE by 2-3 kms. The car also went through Oil Filter, Air Filter and Diesel Filter change. Have others also gone through the same ? If no, any possible fix to increase the FE?

Interesting, my I20 petrol CVT was happily throwing 12-13kmpl after 3rd service a year ago. This time after the 4th paid service the car mileage, in similar conditions has gone down by 2-3kmpl. This post makes me realize the engine oil could be the culprit as nthng else seems to make sense yet.

Did you also switch to Helix 5W 40 and purchased from Amazon ?

Nope, but they changed engine oil in service and I'm assuming they used this brand. Last year after service the mileage jumped and now it fell down. I don't see any other explanation.
I have already seen the car react poorly to shell fuel and had to get the fuel tank cleaned once, maybe the engine oil is nasty for this make too. The SA mentioned some units don't react well to Shell fuel so I avoid anything Shell overall. Quite an irony honestly.
