I promise you I will read your thread whenever it is updated by you . If something goes wrong with my plans and I don't buy a suv I might buy the beat I love the funky styling of this car a lot .
I am very glad that you like Chevrolet Beat.I like its stance and the very good build quality.I also like the way the things are put in this.Very good fit and finish for a car of this price which is VFM
I have seen some owners saying they are getting poor mileage and one time a person got angry and revved it a bit and got a ileage og 9.6 kmpl,and there is another perosn who got around 11.5 kmpl and he was happy because I think he drove some in part enthusastically ,but there are people who get 17-18 kmpl and 20kmpl for one person.
I saw person saying his mileage dropped after the cu remap and then he kept the earlier ecu setting and then he got I think 17.xx kmpl.
One person who got 17-18kmpl is TAI
member I think.
I think even i10 is very efficient I think.I have seen an alto k10 owner reporting 10kmpl.
before the cu remap we have checked mileage but I don't think that is reliable because I don't know whether you have read earlier,our car had petrol leakage from the over flow tank.The problem is almost resolved in the third service and we got the ecu remap during the third service.

. What kind of mileage are you getting now after the ecu remap ?
Why don't you put roof rails like the lt model on your car I think it will cost you some 3000 rs .
I oil is synthetic and is changed after 1.5 years.As we had the cashless 3 year ownership booklet we need not pay for the oil.
I think the 3m is not included in the Chevrolet service package and is put in the interest of the service advisor and so we have to pay for this.The service advisor told us its an addictive and would help in the performance of the car.
Is there any thing wrong with it?
Are you sure that the moroccan blue color is discontinued .The reason I am asking is I have seen a moroccan blue Chevrolet beat diesel at the showroom.
After the the ecu remap when had one several times done tank to tank felling method to check fuel efficiency,some things went against getting mileage.First it was low tire pressure of about 15 psi in place of 34 psi in one of the front tires.Similar thing happened the next as well.the another is the car during these times were used for short trips and have 40 km trip once in while.I think driving the car for short trips from a cold start will effect the mileage.Correct me if I am wrong.
Last time when we had done a tank to tank method ,the mileage have seen an improvement.I think it was around 12-13 kmpl with full time AC.I am not sure though.
From last Saturday to Thursday the car had run pretty good number of kms.
We will most probably do a full tank this week to check mileage and would surely update this thread.
Regarding the roof rail,,my mother don't like it as it resemble to the ones that is used in cabs to carry good on the roof.
