Hi akash thanks for your reply .i have already started a thread .not exactly sure on wether it was in the correct manner .
whereas hobbies are concerned i am very much fond of d technical part of d vehicles . have since childhood travelled in various suvs as my dad did not believe in sedans and hatchbacks . A few unike ones were
1) 1978 jonga modified to a scorpio 6 seater
2) mm540 modified to a armada grand mini ac 5speed di
3) orignal classic mahindra
4) mahindra pickup personally made by my dad in his own workshop with complete seatin in d rear

My thread of scorpio is already active .wish the gurus can help me with my issues

Welcome to the forum, Dr.Jviyala. A crisp introduction from your side.

Nice to hear that you have bought both the cars on the same day! It happens very rarely. The average of 7 kmpl is low for a Cruze, as it's a diesel. Try changing the driving style to match the diesel engine needs, in case your brother was driving a petrol before.

Do create ownership reviews of both your rides in the appropriate section. Get familiar with the forum rules to have a smoother experience.

Regards,
Nikunj

Welcome aboard Doctor Saab, Cruze diesel is already famous for poor FE it offers in City, just tell your brother to lighten his foot on the right pedal in city and your Cruze will easily give 10-12, higher than that isn't expected in the diesel rocket.

Turtle speed means lower gears, definitely the FE will be low, do check between 70-90 kph when the auto tranny is in its sixth cog.

Owing a beast like cruze we always expect great power but can't expect great FE . Beast says, " FEED ME MORE".[evil]
Yes i own a Chevy too. It is Optra 1.6 petrol. Luckily giving 13-14 kmpl easily [glasses]

At turtle speeds, you won't get more mileage, as the car will also be in lower gears. This is the condition we face in bumper to bumper traffic. Since yours is an automatic, you can try going at economy speeds (on the higher side though), in which the Cruze will just shift at the top gear. Maintain that speed with constant throttle input for some time, the MID FE will surely rise.

In my Dzire MT, the FE shown on the MID goes from as low as 7kmpl (2nd gear, 80kmph) to 30kmpl (5th gear, 40kmph). So, it basically depends on the speeds you are doing. Driving with minimal throttle input at highest possible gear brings more FE.

OT: Lakhvir brother is also getting some great FE from 1.6. [:)]

Nikunj

Brother the threads are deleted, I know. But, it is because a thread already exists for the Scorpio problems and you have to post in that thread only (avoiding the confusion caused in case of one thread for each person).

Admin has deleted your threads and moved your post (regarding the issues) to the existing thread.

Below is the link (Post 215) :
http://www.theautomotiveindia.com/f...chnical-problems-solutions-15.html#post446632

You can use the "Search Thread" function to search for the issues, if they have already been discussed in the thread. I am no expert in the technical part, but will comment on the part I can understand in the thread itself. Other wise, you will surely get some advice from other Scorpio owners.

Again, go through the forum rules for a better experience.

Regards,
Nikunj
