Switch off the AC button when the car is cool enough. This applies to cars without climate control. If the car is equipped with automatic climate control, set the car to optimum temperatures to prevent the compressor from running for a long time
Amruth Ganesh LOL Even the ARAI certified mileage is lesser than that
what’s the meaning of carpool?
Akash Shetty go google it
Smartly use the AC means we should avoid keeping AC ON on signals,you can also keep AC power at min here… lower rpm lower AC…at higher rpm it doesn’t matter
thanks DWS for nice tips.
Even Better, Keep the Damn Rickshaws off the road, No congestion, No road rage, No frustrated Drivers, No Bottle necks, even the BEST drivers are very calm and better fuel average, I realised our problem really is Very High percentage of Idiots on the Street, and not an inadequate road infrastructure.
I try to switch off engine when stopping at a light or when not in use for more than 1 min. I try to avoid minimum use of AC. This can also help in saving some amount of fuel.
gud thinking g.
MY CITY GIVES 17-18 AVERAGE….
Bye Bicycle…. good exercise…. no petrol… no toll… no pollution…. no parking charges…
please give some tips for byke riders also…………………….
@ bicycle. Gud idea.
Abhi Jeet Yes… DEAR Abhi… Its100% True FACT!!!
I inform the Same Fact to My HONDA CITY Dealer…he also shocked….

But it can happen only if you
(1)put soft pressure on Accelerator.. pressurize the accelerator only…[Read more]
a fuel and money consuming honda is a myth!!! my city needs a servicing after 10000 kms and it cost less than my santro!!! and its a fact!!
same experience here…
My Honda City 2010 is more efficient than my Hyundai I10 (1.2 kappa) 2009…
From i10 i can get max. 17 km/ltr (with WIDER TYRE set)..
Its all depends upon the Engine’s Power to Weight Ratio, Tyres, Gear ratio, Aerodynamics, Suspensions etc. etc.
@Abhi Jeet,@Amruth Ganesh,@Ajay Srinivas Raghavan…
Did YOU ever have a chance to drive HONDA CITY i-vetec (NEW model)??
Dont confuse between Honda CITY and Honda CIVIC…
ARAI approved CITY for 16.6 Km/ltr
and CIVIC for 11.2 KM/Ltr.
And for your KIND INFORMATION, i will soon upload the Photo of my HONDA City’s Digital meter showing more…[Read more]
Carpool: if more than one persons daily travelling from same way than instead of using separate vehicle use one
interesting to read but very difficult to follow.
thanxs nice tips.
let me follow it……….
Best useful Tips.
I too get 17.5 kmpl sometimes from my honda city iv tec.
drivin at de speed of 40-50 wil give u gr8 milage…
Alto k10 owners are still, least worried..!!!
Hey… for bike owners… use better engine oils… timely change the oils and use high performance oils… they improve performance and better accelaration…. Maitain an optimum speed always while riding, for eg: for FZ or Fazer, you get 40+ only if u control and ride at speeds of 45 and 50…. 60 and above dips the efficiency….
And better, dont use performance kits and filters… they can drink the petrol sometimes that when you sometimes hit above 90 or above, the efficiency might be way below 20 sometimes…
24.6 kmpl on verna crdi 1.6- highway
29.3 kmpl on highway for my new Dzire VDi & 25.7 kmpl in city driving… following all the tips for fuel efficiency. Never drive above 80kmph.
Could u give me an idea about fuel injector cleaners. How to use them and their price?. Thanks in advance.
it seems that it will get response.
yes it will kill Alto…
really great 1…waitng 4 ths…..Eon.
hmm quiet interesting car.
this n honda jazz r somewhat similar..hope it will get good response if it as reasonable pricing too.
Looking forward to see this beauty…..
this car is challenge to other small car segment.
great looking car & better from alto & nano.
wowww man what a creation…………… now hyundai is getting what indian buyer want….. awesome job done.
that’s nice good work hyundai.
It alooks alike like i10 next gen.
but in smaller size n space.
not lesser dan alto
Chori ka Design…. but luks good though…. wonder when Hyundai will ever have their OWN design their OWN Cars…
alto ka ab din pura hone wala hai. Eon is really a very sexy car in looks.
100 % better than Nano(Tata).
this is really nice! I have to check this out when it comes to showroom…. definitely a must see.
I am an ALto lover… but if this car works on mileage and low service cost then it can definetly beat alto..
The looks are awesome and the mileage also seems to be super cool.
NICE CAR I LIKE IT.
let the car cum on road….
Rs.2.50L, wow, mind-blowing.huh.
alto wagon r ritz ..
Indica Vista Quadrajet Aura+
how come i10 has less maintaince cost than alto i didnt get it pls somebody guide me…by da way i own alto k10..thx in advance
al the cars r hv been mentioned here..n definitely al thm cnt hv the same maintenance cost..so which 1 is the real winer?
wat abt chevy beat?
MARUTI….ALTO N WAGON RCHEVY…SPARK N BEAT
At 3.5 lakh Budget Alto LXI is a good bet as it’s now an entry level hatch from MS which means lower maintenance costs,easy on pockets.At 4-5 lakhs budget,Alto K10 will be good bet for enthusiastic drivers as the engine is peppy and fun to drive around town.Next comes the WagonR which is doing better for money’s worth and pretty good features.I10…[Read more]
alto is the best. ‘india comes home in a maruti suzuki’ always
Alto K10 if ur budget is 3.5 lacsWagon R – 5 lacsRitz- 5.5 lacs…But the best car if u like to DRIVE and falls well into ur budget is the Swift…jus go for it.
Hyundai i10 Rocks!
Hyundai is clearly leading in this race…
I STILL PREFER MARUTI………………..
wagonr is better than all.. Maruti suzuki roxx..
I would like to buy Maruti Suzuki Wagon R.
Sure, one day it will be your’s.
I 10 rockssss.
I go for Maruti Suzuki Wagon R.
What about chevrolet beat?
” Gareeb logon ka sahara Maruti Suzuki Hamara……..
I am driving a chevrolet spark LPG+PETROL…n it really sucksss on maintainence…i would never opt for A chevrolet in my life now….HYUNDAI STILL ROCKS IN ALL ASPECTS…<3.
petrol car is the best seller in indian market due less maintanance cost.
I 10 is the best…:)
hyundai I10 is gr8.
@[1680937225:2048:Manish Pandey] ha bahiya ye to sabko ab maana hi padega……………..par 1 prblm h aap meri chevrolet ko sare aam badnam nhi kar sakte….samaj rhe ho na aapp pandey ji………
han bhai..bilkul chevrolet…mast hai…
chevrolet offers the 3year service plan with no extra cost….so for 3 years service cost s goin 2 b a fraction of what s given here…..
why people always say maruti maruti. give chance to other companies also.
no one is No.1.
There are similar to No.1.
maruti all d way
Hyundai I 10 Rocks! a fantastic vehicle from Hyundai.
how come the alto is not there on the list? its supposed to be the cheapest to run and maintain.
HyundaI Santro Rockzzzzz!
My WaronR-Duo gave me Rs.1 per Kilometer maintainence cost, till now 111000Km runned.Maintained at Maruti service centre only,have proof with Invoice.
Beauty of petrol cars is that service or no service, they just “Chalta Hey”.. Castrol GTX @ Rs. 280 ltr and local made engine oil filter @ Rs. 80-200.. Good enough every 5000 to 6000 kms .. what else ??
Tata Nano is the cheapest and also worst for a resale. YOu will have to just scrap it after 5 years.
Alto K10, A-Star, Wagon R and Estilo share the K series engine. Do they share the same maintenance factor? How true is that?
@ Vijay Kale : WagonR-Duo is a 1096 CC engine. This is a totally different engine than the k series engine.
