Santro should give 12 to 13 with Ac in the city trafic, pls check with your dealer and see the engine tuning and mileage. After the dealer check up If everthing is good in the Santro then you should change your driving habbits. Make sure proper tyre pressure, do not drive with half clutch, use proper gear selection for your speed.

Your car is very new.So if there is no fuel leakage there is only one conclusion that is "You do not drive properly".
You should shift to 3rd gear at 20 kmph. 4th gear at 35kmph and 5th at 50 kmph. This should return 15kmpl in petrol mode.

I tried many things to increase the milage of my Lancer fitted with LPG kit. After many trials, just these 2 things gave me the real relief.
1. Advancing the stock timing of the engine by 3 more points.
2. Cleaning the mpfi injectors ( this has to be done by the expert who have the injector cleaning machine ) The total cost of all these repairs will not exceed more than Rupees 250.00.

Hope these minor tweaks solve your problem.

Expert`s comment:

The mileage you are getting inboth modes is quite low.Please get the same inspected and mileagecheckdone at authorised workshop. As the car is under warranty, dealer must provide solution free of cost.
