Hi,
For increasing mileage get the carburator overhauled, fuel pump checked and engine tuning done.

They are fooling, I had same year Zen and was giving me avg. of 8-10 kpl, i did servicing at Maruti Authorised showroom, then i showed my car to another mechanic and he said servicing is done perfect, cant increase mileage over this. So if your car is so old and giving 10-12kpl, its best and good. your friends are fooling you. One of my friend was telling that he had 1995 zen and giving 18kpl, and after one year he sold it for 50k telling that there were many problems, so he was lieing. So be assured that your mileage is best.

1 - As the car get older performance of a car will certainly come down.
2 - The average of the car mentioned 10 - 12 is in the city or highways. If it is in the city, you can say it gives fairly good average.
3 - To keep you car well maintain you should change your engine oil after every 4000 Kms. This also will help you to give a better average.

Dear Rajiv. Tere are a lot of factors which contributes to the average of the car. First i would like to know how do u calculate average. I used to have a zen 2000 model which gave an average of about 10 to 11 Kmpl in the city and close to 15.5 to 16 on the highway with the AC. What i suggest is get your car checked by Maruti authorised service station. If all is ok then u need to check the tyre pressure and the wheel bearings. The tyres will also have a major role. Pls get in touch with me on 9324513591 and i will explain u in deails

According to my experience, I would like to cofirm you that your car model is about 99. which would't be Mpfi Engine.
I have the maruti zen which is 2005 model its giving 14-15 kml in city & 17-18 on high way. so the main difference of model of mpfi engine. old model won't give you more than 12kml. if you would like to know more. can call me--- 09868584142

Before jumping to conclusions please check the authenticity of such claims by your friends n then check your own driving style -
1) Do you ride the clutch?
2) Accelerate hard n then brake often?
3) Have to wade through rush hour snail-pace traffic with jams?
4) Do you check on tyre pressure atleast once a fortnight?
5) Maintain & service your car properly as per Co guidelines (that includes oil/filters/tuneups/alignment/clutch/brake etc)?

The mileage quoted is slightly on the lower side, but 16-18kpl in city traffic in a Zen is wishful thinking.

I can probably boast of 24kpl n drive you through nightmares.

Responsible driving more often than not, takes care of fuel-efficiency issues.

Mileage of any vehicle depends upon the condition of engine as well as driving style and area where u commonly drive. if ur vehicle is properly tuned and overhauled, and u drive ur car in a congested area where u have to apply brakes repeatedly, as well gear change is rigorous, ur car would guzzle more petrol as compared to others who has a quiter drive area. So analyse these points and you would get ur answer. A levelled speed drive also increases mileage for example you drive on an average speed of 50 km/hr and dont accelerate instantly or brake instantly without any reason.
Hope this will answer ur query.

check the engine of your car and ask the mechanic to set the rpm and tap. ensure that your engine is not over heated.
cluth and pressure plates must be in good condition

In 2003 model I get 15-16kmpl without AC with 70% highway drive. Don't think u get lesser mileage. but u don't say who drive the car in most cases. If local drivers are driving, then mileage is always 2-3kmpl less than own secure tuned driving, which means proper gear change with less clutch press (0-10-1stgear, 10-20-2nd, 20-40-3rd gear, 40-60-4th gear, >60-5th gear). If the km reading is more than 65k, then engine causes higher fuel consumption.

Thank you all for replying back to my question about milage for Maruti Zen. Its a 2nd hand and I dont know what the 1st owner had done on this car. But I had overhauled the carburator and I had a feeling that there will be problem in the clutch. So I will be working on this Now. Thank you all once again

Maruti Zen 1998 is 1000 cc and has more power than zen 2005 which is 800 cc and difference lies there. In fact, controlling the fuel through a switch may enhance the mileage.

i have a 93 zen giving an average of
14 in city with lots of stop and go (without A/c)
15 in rural areas with less traffic (without A/c)
18 on highways (with A/c) and 18.5 on highways (without A/c)

i feel if you car is in average or good condition then the only factor is the person driving it.
a bad driver will all-ways get bad mileage on any vehicle new or old than a good driver.

get to the top most gear of your vehicle as early as possible and drive in average speed of 40 km/ph, Reduce too much gear changes, unnecessary use of clutch and brakes.
sudden breaks, sudden acceleration, overtaking and rash driving.

you will get an average of 16 km per litre on any zen.
if you drive properly and still get below that then checkup and tune your vehicle

Quality of tires also play a major role in determining the mileage.
