My Safari Storme clocks 75000km: Updates on service & fuel efficiency

Storme was driven by me for 15000 km last year, despite the downtime of 2 months for AC repair & accident repair.

BHPian PrasannaDhana recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

Just posting the 75,000 km milestone. The 75k service was done at 73,000 km. Storme has run 2000 km since service:

I have been using the chauffer for sometime now. Storme is driven by 2 of my drivers, both involuntarily lug the engine at times. I have to remind them to downshift

It does feel relaxed to enjoy the comfort of the rear seat while being driven, specially on rural roads like these.

Storme was driven by me for 15000 km last year, despite the downtime of 2 months for AC repair & accident repair. This year, Storme is being used more. In Feb, Storme has been used for 1500 km. I have firmly told my drivers to not exceed 90 kmph on highways. The result is seen in increased FE

Storme is put to use 4 days a week, while I drive the Punch & Altroz the remaining 3 days. Surprisingly, Punch is as costly as Storme to run per km. I haven't used the Punch extensively on highways yet though.

I haven't gotten the sun film pasted on rear windshield yet. I need to do it when I find time.
