XUV fuel tank is rated for 70 Litres officially but it takes in 74~75 litres when really empty (I do not recommend this). because about 5 liters is reserve. I do not have definite answer for bikes but it could be something like that. Plus, vehicles swallow some fuel for Pipes, Carb, Filter etc which is above the capacity of the tank.
Yes this could be the case, the petrol pump was within 500m from showroom. I thought showroom guy cheated me with 1.5L fuel.
Thanks for the clarification.

Last year there was a similar issue at IOC owned and operated outlet in Trivandrum. A brand new Hyundai filled to the brim and took more than the specified capacity. He screwed up leading to action from authority. Legal Meteorology department officials brought Hyundai guys and drained the tank to empty and filled to brim in the presence of IOC officials and it actually took way more than the rated capacity.

I have a different issue. My FZ got a 14-litre tank with 1.4-litre reserve. I never managed to fill more than 12 litres including the fuel left in reserve. The highest ever was 12.10 litre with 400 mL approx left in the tank that too happened with the moron at the dispenser left the nozzle in and watching chicks and didn't cut off, even burning my balls [sad]

6th Service @15000km:

Hi everyone, posting in this thread after a long time. Last week I was in my hometown and Jupiter had covered 500 more kilometers and was due for service. TVS SC was also making repeated calls reminding me to get the servicing done. So took it to SC and asked them to Change Oil along with Air Filter and Spark Plug as it was recommended to replace Spark plug once in 15k kilometers.
Air Filter was also not changed till now so it was also replaced. Unlike free services this time they did not use polish on black parts. The Bill was 900 INR.

I had issue with handle bar, when turned at right side it will be hard but if turned left it will move freely. I had asked them to rectify the issue but they had not. I gave the bike in morning 9:30AM and they promised delivery by 12:30pm. When I went there Jupiter was serviced but they did not check handle at all, I asked them to look into it and they said Mechanic is not available. I waited and waited for him and he came at 2 pm. He opened front fender and tightened T bolt but the issue was still there, then he asked other boys to fix the panel and left.

Those two were struggling to fit the crash guard, they did not tighten the screws properly and barely managed to do it. The air filter pipe was removed and did not put in place. Finally when I was to pay the bill the girl at the counter said that printer is not working and I will have to visit again to get the invoice. I asked them to email the invoice but they did not. When I was coming from showroom the screws came out and front guard started making noise due to vibration.

TVS does call you after service to get feedback about service, I asked them it could be better and can improve. They ask to visit SC again but its difficult to keep visiting SC again and again. TVS Service is definitely not world class as claimed by them.

After sales is one of the main factors why people are reluctant to go for TVS despite recommending to many. Main reason why I chose FZ over RTR. But I must say it's better than Hero and RE and many times Honda.

The mechanics at TVS are young boys with less experience, as it is a new service center staff is less. Hope they improve with time, apart from this there are no issues in ownership.

That's the case with every service centres, even KTM and RE. They hire from ITIs at cheap rates, like an apprentice. They learn job ruining our machines, gets experience, become senior mech or start their own garage. Even saw immigrant workers with no knowledge about bikes hired as washing boys doing periodic service at already horrible RE service centre. The chap who worked as an apprentice at KTM is now working as the chief mechanic in one of the SBK garages in Trivandrum.
