Question
Recently, I have owned 3 years used Mahindra Scorpio Slx (CRDe) Model which is runned appx. 1,25,000 Km with Engine in Good condition. After taking it, I have replaced all four tyres and used Nitrogen Gas instead of normal Air in tyres. I have replaced Engine Oil, Gear Oil, Clutch cable, Air Filter, Diesel Filter. I run vehicle on highway with constant speed of 80 Kmph with minimum use of Clutch and Brakes. But I'm getting mileage of 10.91 Kmpl, which I think is too less. I expect it to be 14 Kmpl. What are the probable reason for that??

Hi,
With long term usage the overall engine efficiency reduces due to wear out of parts, increased frictional losses etc. Hence mileage of app 11kmpl is quite good.

1,25,000 KM's is a mileage. Pls get your fuel injector pump checked. Also figure out if there's been any servicing done for the fuel injector. Check for fuel leakages if any. May be you figure out something. In my opinion 11 is a good average and you wouldn't get any higher mileage. All the best.
