Hello.. chevy petrol engine isnt that good in terms of milage but it`s lasting and powerful. so if you want mileage i would suggest to drive in 3rd and fourth as much as possible try to avoid break nect throttles and sudden breaking then you`l get a slight improvement in mileage otherwise you`l suffer.

Look I had experienced a similar problem with my Optra Magnum 2.0 when I purchased it last october (Was getting a milage of 6-7 km/l and also lacked the power). After 1000 km's I complained to the dealer and they explained that the general tune up is made in a way that and is usually re-tuned at the end of first month.
Post the first re-tune i started getting a milage of 9-10 km/l.
Remember it takes atleast 3000 kms for a petrol engine / 5-10kms for a diesel engine to fully sent in. Also ensure they at the first service they change all Oil's including including the gear box oil. (believe me its worth the extra money)
So you have to be patient, its not buying a 2 wheeler where u can test the milage right after the fist service.

On the bright side I had been getting around 12-13 liter in Bangalore City since I crossed 5000 km - 2nd service(and i check my milage every time i fill in gas), and on the highway i get 17 (I cruze between 100- 120, not pushing any further)
