I guess the bangalore traffic is main reason for this lousy mileage...!
Mahii, I've used premium diesel when it was only a rupee or so more than normal diesel, now with almost 9Rs. to a litre doesnt make sense if FE goes up by 1-2!
I'm not sure its anything with the machine, Its most probably driving style-Dont go to heavy on the throttle, shift up smoothly and stay in higher gears unless reqd.! Key is to go light on throttle and let it power itself, as after 2000 RPM, there's no stopping it!
I have an MID FE of 16.8 till date which can be taken as 15KMPL (manual tank full averages calculated by me bring it to 16 ) But I think 11 is on the lower side even for B'lore traffic! All my Highway trips (300kms+) have given me FE of atleast 18-19kmpl and Mumbai-Pune trips 22KMPL by manual calculations!
