    Default brand new mehran vx 2013 fuel problem

    a family member got a new mehran vx euro 2 2013 model , strange thing is we filled the fuel tank with fuel rs.3000/- i think we paid that amount and it was full .

    the guy said for some reason the tank gets filled with air ..dont know what he ment , anyway the car was 40km when we took from show room now its like 150 , i noticed the needle was on full yesterday and now its like a little more then half tank .

    wtf is this .....whats the average do these cars give . there is no fuel leak etc ...is it me or is this normal for this car , i heard it does 18km in city .

    the only real way to find out is to consume all the fuel and see how much the car will run on a full tank even if it does close to 500km i think good enough .

    any suggestions . there is no missing / or fuel leak etc .

    yes i did install new seat covers in the car , is it possible that one of the wires of the fuel tank got yanked etc --coz it really does not make any sence on the fuel needle.

    or should i fill it up again , i am guessing about 6 - 7 litres of fuel are gone on just 100km in city .

    drive around 200 km and then refill. you'll get idea. on my first fill it gave 14 km/l and in 2nd fill and on it is giving 16?17 km/l on light foot.
    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?

    emm i guess u are right there - i am thinking right now where the needile is before it touches the half way point like needle on exactly the half tank line - it will do i think 210-220kn right now its on 150 so i am guessing it will do that .

    if it does that then a total of 490-500km aint bad in city .

    but lets see

    New car has bad mileage for sometime. give it time like wait till 1000kms. reported mileage of new mehran is 15-16 with light foot and 14 if you drive it like 70. after first tuneup and oil change mileage will improve alot.
