Q: Mileage

asked by on

Hi I am from India ,

My 10 days old Creta Automatic Petrol is giving mileage of around 7 . How much will mileage increase after 1st or 2nd service ( after engine oil is changed )

Your fuel mileage will get better over the first three months of driving the vehicle. If after three months you are not getting the advertised fuel mileage then return to the dealer ship to see if the vehicle has a problem. Unless the check engine is on then you most likely do not have a problem at this time.
