Many solutions. Rather obvious:
- Keep inflated tires. A little over inflated won't hurt.
- Make sure your car is not loaded with un-necessary accesories that add weight. Weight is the biggest factor.
- Every 3rd of 4th fuel up put in Premium fuel, high octane.
- When stopped, do not ramp up. Go progressively not exceeding 2.2 RPM.

That will do it.

Expert`s comment:


The manufacturers specify mileage after testing in standard conditions and it will always be on higher side.To get best mileage please follow standard driving habits and get the vehicle serviced as per schedule.

Shift gears quicker. And yes, use neutral.

hey the problem you are facing can only be because of your driving pattern.
diesel and petrol cars have a veryy diff. way of driving and if you have graduated from a petrol car then it will take some time to understand diesel car.
anyways jus understand your swift and you WILL GET 18KPL ATLEAST IN CITY without loosing the pep!
cheers ...
