    tappet ka mileage seh lehna dehna bhoohat kam hota hai tappet seh basically starting and acceleration improves!get ur car tunned frm a proper person who can adjust the gas n air mixture properly n ur issue should be resolved!besides this when is the last time u changed ur airfilter and sparkplugs?changing dose even cause an increase in mileage!n always make sure tht u use the original recommended air filter by guard ppl ya warna using other sasta air filters even cause problems and mileage issues!

    if there'z a sound like "tik tik" ..means they are loose and if u feel less pickup it could b due to tight valves..
    btw valves need to b little loosen on cng ..not to the extent that they start making noise.

    Default tapets and fuel ....................

    get check electrical system coil, wires, plugs and also cng kit if required . valves cant be jammed in running car. if ur electrical system not working it can affect econmy 40 percent or more. tappets keep ur engine balance

    adjust your clearances properly on a dead cold engine - then proceed to adjust them to 0.2mm on both inlet and exhaust sides.. buy a feeler gauge and force the mechanic to use that..

    dont rely on a sound of tik tik or tak tak to determine if you need a clearance job done. Tappets can be noisy or extremely quiet in original spec - its all about the design of the engine.
