Thanks for the neat clean up job Vibhor. Saved me the trouble uploading the pictures with my slow connection. I'll keep adding important parts of the old thread and my new updates. ICE update is next on the cards. I've just started sourcing parts for building a Carputer.
You're welcome Peter. Nice and fully detailed report of your New Alto as I said in previous forum as well. We'll be waiting for the updates and you can search around the forum regarding your ICE and Carputer queries, There are few threads floating around on same.

Drive Safe,

Ok here's the update on the milege.
Just tanked up today.
Last tankful on 30.01.10. ODO: 6783 and trip meter reset.
Today again filled up 21.67 litres. ODO: 7080
Total Kms: 297
Milege: 13.71 Kmpl.
The driving was 60% Highway and 40% City.
Very disappointed.

This seems to be real bad figure Peter.

Can you tell us more about your driving style ?

Very spirited driving ? or more than 120+kmph ?

I usually drive at around 80 on the highway. City driving is slower. The traffic is Goa is not much. I also don't unneccesarily rev the car. Infact I really rev my Petra and drive over 100 on the highways and it gives me 13 Kmpl.

Me thinks either something drastically wrong with the vehicle or the shoe size!!
The car is still running the OEM tyres.

Oh this is very bad Peter!! Considering your driving at 60% highways you should have got a much higher figure. In fact you are saying you drive only at 80 and don rev the engine hard , so a much higher figure is expected! Why don you try some other MASS in Goa??

I had meant a heavy foot on the accelerator!!
But your speed of 80 on the highway eliminates that option.

Oh! Peter,

There is something fundamentally wrong with your car then.

Even my car gives 14 easily on spirited driving conditions.

Any car < 1200cc @ 80kmph will definitely give above 15+ easily

Whats the reply from MSIL when reported about this issue ?

Hey your mileage has increased actually![:)]

How has this happened?? And i assume its the same 80% highway and 20% city!! Though your car should deliver more there seems to be a marginal improvement!!

60-40 actually. The milege is up but still too low.

Hope you don't need to pay?
The car is not even a year old. Why should I pay. I have 2 years warranty.

Anyway if the problem is not solved, I'm selling the car. Already spoke to the bank about closing the loan. I have already told the dealer that if they can't solve the problem, then take the car back and refund my money.
