    Default Suggestions for XLI Fuel Improvement needed:

    AoA!
    I have got a new XLI. Its almost giving an average of 12kms/ltr in urban area. Is there any equipment/kit that can be installed for better fuel efficiency? I do not intend to install CNG at this point as the warranty would be void.

    Xli normally shoud do 14 litres/km in city (I am talking about Islamabad, as it depends on traffic congestion and road conditions, too much idling can increaes your fuel consumption per litre, so it will vary form city to city).

    Try to find a good petrol pump, as most of the pumps just give your something 0.7 litres or less and not a full litre, so it not really the car in most cases, but less fuel given by pumps which is responsible for low milage.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    If your car is during the break-in period, wait for it to run atleast 5K KM, the milage should also improve after that. secondly try what autophile suggested, his XLI gives a really good fuel average . Lastly, stay away from CNG. its a bittersweet experience for most folks. take care.
