      Bad i10 Mileage :(

      My new i10 , 1.1 Magna which I delibrately purchased 1.1L as I thought would be more fuel efficient than 1.2, has now made me mad. Gives only 8.2Km/L with a/c on in city

      Is this what its meant to be ??
      Or will this improve overtime as the car is new ??
      Or something has to be modified or to get proper mileage ??

      P.S.:I used to get around 8 with my 2002 Santro with A/C on and around 10 without A/c (in city)

      new cars give low fuel efficiency
      but 8.2 km/L is really very less usably 1.2l car gives around 12 to 14 km/l with ac
      my be it because of more breaking and gear shifting wile driving

      1. Are you driving on half clutch?
      2. Is the 8.2 in B2B traffic?

      Low FE could be related to many reasons. Primarily being:

      1. Traffic conditions.
      2. How you drive. What RPMs do you shit at?
      3. What is your tyre pressure set at?
      4. In all probability you might be running adulterated fuel. Change the fuel pump and see if you get better FE.
      5. During run-in period cars do tend to give less mileage, but 8.2 kmpl seems a tad too low for me.

      Also you can check out this thread.

      so low FE for both the cars might be it is your driving style (rash!?).

      how much is your daily running? our wagonR back home returns 10kmpl in city coz the running is only around 2km one way. so cold start on all occasions(i suspect).

      hmmm..well daily running is about 10km totally in city driving..
      My driving not rash..no half clutching(its for morons and ptc bus drivers)..
      all under 2000rpm(max)..
      and yeah 8.2 B2B traffic sometimes..hardly driven this car over 40Km/ph.. crap my city is getting congested ..

      I think traffic is the main reason why you are getting such low FE. Probably this will improve after 2nd service. And I don't think your engine is liking any bit of it being driven under 2000 rpm, this could also be a reason for the low FE because the engine is being loaded a bit too much, specially when its brand new. From time to time try to get the revs up towards 4000 when you see an empty stretch.

      Also what tyre pressure are you running?

      30psi pressure as recommended. also 4000rpm , m too scared to do that (new car)..Also love the silence the engine has,, hit me on head with a hammer but I like silent cars, thats why going under 2000rmp , also damn city traffic it takes 30min to drive from home to office just 5kms off..

      Any tips to drive properly in B2B traffic while saving fuel ?

      Seems fine.

      Driving to 4000 rpm wont harm the engine, these days most modern engines don't need to be run-in. Infact revving it occasionally will do more good than harm IMO. Not only does it help to clean up the carbon content that can develop in the engine & exhaust but it will also help get even wear across a larger RPM band. Also see if this thread helps.

      also damn city traffic it takes 30min to drive from home to office just 5kms off..
      I don't think the traffic is that bad? It usually takes me an hour to travel 4-5kms in Bangalore during peak hours.

      Hhhhmm!

      1. If signal is longer than 30 secs, switch off the engine.
      2. Try to ride the clutch as less as possible in bumper to bumper traffic. Use the handbrake when not moving, instead of pressing the clutch and being in gear waiting for the vehicle in front to move.
      3. If the traffic is really slow, then start moving in 1st, once you gain enough momentum, shift to neutral and coast slowly till you have to brake again. Not advisable to roll in neutral for speeds > 20kmph.
      4. Clean the air filter periodically if you are driving in a lot of bumper to bumper traffic.
      5. Fill from a reputed petrol pump, make sure fuel is not adulterated.
      6. I don't think switching off AC is an option for you in Chennai, lol.
      7. Don't put undue strain on the engine trying to shift at low revs.

      I think the 1.1 engine in i10 is the same as the one in my 1.1 Getz. Even the manual says keep the rev between 2000 and 4000 rpm during initial run in. So dont worry, that should not be a problem.

      Try shifting at close to 3500 rpm and downshifting at 2000 rpm and see if it makes any difference. I am getting about 13 in the city. 8.6 is just too low. Bangalore traffic is as bad as you can get anywhere
