Currently my 20 days old Honda City iVTEC is delivering an economy of 7-8kmpl whereas Honda claims around 10kmpl. Should I expect the economy of my car to improve with time?

There are a lot of factors on which fuel economy depends and the driver is directly involved in most of them. Some of the major causes of a low fuel economy are - frequent gear shifting, foot on the clutch during driving, frequent driving at higher RPM range, quality of the fuel being used plus the traffic intensity at the time of driving the vehicle. All these factors and more, affect the mileage to a great extent. Generally in Honda cars the fuel efficiency increases after the first 2 services as the company protects the engine by sending in a bit more fuel than required to ensure that the engine does not gets damaged during the first few thousand kms. Hence, I am very confident that your average will definitely improve but if you drive it carefully and treat your car right.
