Calling all you Swift Diesel users out there!!!!
hi guys i am Rijo from kerala. Recently my dad brought me a brand new Swift Diesel VDI version and that too a Black beauty.
Till now i have done approx 3500km on the road. I am writing this to you guys to know about the mileage part. I am right now getting a mileage of around 15-16 kmpl in city driving conditions with AC on at level 2.
What I mean by city driving conditions is that, its not like the big cities like Banglore or Mumbai or Chennai. The traffic is pretty moving out here. But i need to mention it has got a very big share of potholes for that matter.
I think the mileage I am getting for my car is a bit low than what i would have expected at this stage,sumwhere around 17 kmpl is what i hoped for. i have completed my first service only.
I would like the advice of the esteemed technical gurus out here in this forum as to how i should drive my car to get the best possible mileage out of the vehicle.
-->What should be the ideal gear changing ratios?
-->Should i maintain the very often mentioned 2000rpm on each of the gears or is that applicable to only the fifth gear?
-->Is the fuel being used an important criterion in deciding the mileage? I use the IBP petrol pump's fuel right now.
-->Is the road conditons i mentioned i drive in regularly in any way decreasing my mileage?
-->Will the car's mileage increase after the forthcoming services?
Other highly valuable suggestions on how to drive the car to get the maximum out of the car in terms of Fuel Efficiency would be highly appreciated.
And one more thing is that i havent changed the tires of my car.Also no performance modd devices are attached
Cummon guyss i really hope you woudnt dissappoint me.....

17+ with ac in the city is acceptable for a car that has done 3.5k kms.
All the best mate and enjoy the drive
