Rest is good and just follow the RUN IN procedure properly and may be after 1500 kms or so go for a short stint upto 120 or so and after 2000kms go for a short sting upto 150 or so to check the power and performance of the vehicle.
I took my vehicle today to Munnar. It was a 400kms long drive. 7Hrs drive.
300 kms city+highway and 100kms 100% hills with full AC.
Its sliding over the hills as highways. Very satisfied drive. I tested a lot for better mileage at all type of speed in variety gears.
Today i got 16.2Km/lr in city+highway with full AC at 70 to 90km speed.
7Km/ltr in hairpin bends with AC
11km/ltr in hills with AC
I hope i can reach 18km/ltr in highway.
My car showing i can cruise another 350kms without refill diesel.
I'll try the 120km/hr and 150/hr speed next week in highways.
I dont feel any vibration after 60kms in 3rd and 4th gear. Even in 5th gear there is no vibration after 50kms speed. I'll test it in another new vehicle.
I hope tomorrow i can get some good photos.
