I do it every time. Till date no problem. Advantage, you get exact fuel consumption every time. But if you are not using the car for long time (eg only weekends) better don’t do it every time.
No. Stop refueling as soon as the dispenser cuts off automatically. Just round off to the nearest 50Rs
well upto auto cut off, okay, but after that its suicidal, as it affects the car’s vapor system, you could face emission issues and poor performance if liquid fuel enters the charcoal canister,,,, also there could be fuel spill at turns and could be pretty dangerous in summer,,,, also don’t do, tankful for ghat roads, as the car feels bit less…[Read more]
with tank full, i feel driving is soft and requires less push on accelerator, after tank is half empty , driving seems to be harsh and feel like providing more accelerator.. I do not if every one feels the same .. these are my observations…
Absolutely no disadvantage. Rather not stopping every second day for fuel will save you time, some fuel & peace of mind.
You are right the payback is long. Do give a close look to Chevy Beat, it is a good car for city commuting and has nice new age interiors. The price is also very competitive. Do calculate.
Buy Figo Diesel in the price range of Polo Petrol and trust me you will be more than happy. Figo is more spacious than Polo, no turbo lag in Figo diesel, good handling and good build quality. I won’t advise Polo since VW’s service cost is on upper end.
Going forward, with fuel prices closing up, the pay back period would be even longer. That said, a diesel car is inherently more fuel efficient than a petrol. I like Ishmeet’s suggestion of a Figo diesel at the price of a Polo petrol.
Daily 55 kms means 1400-1500 kms per month…(except long journeys) I thinks its really needed Diesel
Figo Diesel makes more sense to buy
in diesel you have option of swift, i20, punto, sail, vd90 almost at the same price bracket – best mjd fiat diesel engine is found in most which is better than polo diesel – so take your pick
There was no need to go synthetic in the first place. The 1.3 DDiS had been running on regular mineral oil since its launch, 7-8 years back. Its only now that Maruti has officially shifted to synthetics, which is why dealers and workshops make it a point to push you towards them and make a killing process. Do flush the engine before you change the oil.
17000 on the same engine oil, why such a long gap when ur manufacturer asks to visit every 10000 ?
If you have not changed your engine oil between 22000 km and 39000 km, then you are not doing something good for your engine, especially becuase its a diesel. Get it changed ASAP.
I will be using it mainly for urban travel and rarely go on the highway
Why fear? The Linea TJet is here.
Linea and honda city. Test drive the cars u want, find the on road price for your city and then decide. But linea is very tempting now and its interior is very classy.
Linea Tjet should be the option.
Linea T-Jet..No confusion.Great Car..
Gearing and engine tuning. i20 will do well in such drag race scenarios. However, floor the i20 at 40kmph in fourth. Its asleep. Do so in an Amaze. You will be pushed into the seat.
i20 anyhow has a limited powerband to play. Even a 3 pot Polo revs better. 0-100 or top speeds don’t matter if the car isn’t fun to drive.
Funny thing is both cars are not confidence inspiring in the three digit territory. In the real world, all these specs just stay as discussions. Also 0 – 100 timings can be skewed by auto reviewers (and these mostly cannot be replicated by owners in real life), rolling acceleration times are useful in real life and can easily be replicated too. Regards.
The Linea comes with a three-year / 100,000 km warranty which is pretty good. As for service, the company now is on its own – no tie ups, and so service is likely to be a lot better. It only has 58 dealers now but is planning around 100 by year end. The company is now getting quite serious about the Indian market – with a new sporty Punto Abarth…[Read more]
In short, have no concerns. All you need to look for is a nearby showroom.
its absolutely safe. Take the extended warranty as well. It covers you for 5 yrs and 150K kms which is hest provided by any manufacturer. All this because they are sure of their product. Service levels have increased a lot of notches now. The worry of reach will also go when they will have all their 100 dealers operational backed by independent…[Read more]
Hi, I own a Punto and can tell you that service is perfectly fine here in Pune. Fiat is improving by leaps & bounds not only in no of dealerships & service centers but also logistics, CRM, spare parts availability & turn around time, factory training etc. Warranty Std – 3 yrs / 100000 kms and Extended – 5 yrs / 150000 kms, highest in industry.…[Read more]
I would say 195/60/R15 would be the best option for you. For it to look extended out, you will need to get alloys that have a negative offset. Regards.
This size on pirilli comes only as P6 which is not so good Primary LC on michelin should be good quite tyre which does the job perfectly. Yoko has ES100 with the patern you said but it does not have much tread life. Expect it to be 10k less than others.
Get the Linea TJet. Best AC, spacious enough, and most stable at speed.
Yes, you have got a car for you! The new Linea TJet does everything just so perfectly. Rush to the dealer now without any thoughts. The speed for your info goes upto 200 kmph and stays happy at those speeds.
easily 2.5 lac + …. no issues, until you revv it a lot, at idling ….
2L is bare minimum, provided you keep to the service schedule and maintain it properly.
ts been seen that on CNG this engine breaks down a lot early. Two of my friends had this problem. One luckily had a company fited kit so got the new engine without paying the bill of 82k, other is still strugling with after market mechanic.
I beg to differ. My WagonR had its engine overhauled at 2.3L km. Over half of them were covered on CNG. And that was on a conventional venturi type kit.
Even I have cng on my Alto that is close to 1.1 lac kms, the problem is with i10 and not with cng. Both the cases are of same engine….one died at 42k kms, other at 66k kms
Ill maintained engines can die this young even on petrol. The key is maintenance,
@Shreyans I can vouch for the guy who’s i10 died at 66k kms. He is a keeper and a close friend of mine. His 10 yr old splendor still performs duty pretty well.
I cant comment on isolated cases. Visit any CNG station. You will find scores of Santros, i10 and i20s queued up for refill. Ask any owner who runs a sequential kit. You will only hear good things, provided the oils and filters are changed periodically.
I know & was also a CNG user. This particular engine on i10 is an issue. Anyways Hyundai do not give sequential kit nor most of the users in this segment spend 55k on a kit. The cases above were of conventional kit. One being company fitted(dealer fitted with warranty) and other from local market.
