The mileage of 12kmpl is indeed less by any standard even if you are driving in the city. But, just to make sure that you driving correctly and there is no issue with the car itself, I want to let you know that factors like incorrect tyre pressure, revving excessively, and hard acceleration etc. decrease the mileage of the car significantly. If you have been getting your car serviced regularly, I would suggest you to take the car to a nearest service station, report the issues and get it checked.
The Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 is an economy segment tiny car for the lower income group peoples. The car is having a small engine of 796 cc along with a power of 48 PS and 69 Nm torque. The car is based on BS IV emission and gives a d3ecent mileage. But the mileage of the Maruti Suzuki Alto 800 is not up to the mark. So if you are getting a mileage of 12 KMPL you might be driving the car mostly in the cities I guess.
I am agreeing with the above statement, there are certain reason behind that, first of all the basic mileage of the Vehicle, please don’t consider the one Given by ARAI as in Alto 800 case it is around 22 KMPL which is fake completely, second is your driving dynamics and finally most important part is the location and road where you are driving, whether it is in the city or the highways.
I am having same thought and you have said it very well, all the three conditions mentioned above determines the average of a car but I feel pity on the ARAI how come they give such a figure which is not even the half in the real life examples. Additionally what kind of engine has been made by Maruti which delivers only 12 KMPL with a 796cc engine. It looks stupid completely.
This is an exceptionally low mileage that you are getting for your car. I would suggest you to go and get it checked at an authorized service center and report the problem as soon as possible rather than going online on these firms looking for people who would answer the question.
I do not believe that this car can give such a low mileage. My a lot gives 22 kmpl and I am proud of it. I would suggest you to go get the engine of the car checked and tweaked if necessary so that the problems are removed and you can get the best.
