Hi,
The mileage you are getting is quite good considering the traffic conditions leading to wastage of fuel. Mileage canbe improved by switching off the engine when idling for longer duration.

I think thr mileage is good in city driving. My diesel Linea in Bombay gives me around 12-12.5. So if ritz giving 14.5 its good.Mr Shive wht should be the minimum idling time to switch the engine off in traffic. does frequent on and off effect the engine and other parts.Kindly inform if the vehicle is diesel one.
