I have just purchased Figo Trend and it is providing the average mileage 14.5 kmpl, so there are any chances to get improve after first service.

You haven't specified whether it is the petrol or diesel car. According to ARAI mileage, the Ford Figo have a 18.6 kmpl mileage of petrol engine and 25.83 kmpl for diesel, but in reality the mileage is different which is between 15-20 kmpl. If you are driving the diesel car that there are chances to improve after first service.
There are a few measures you should also keep in mind like don't over use clutch, stop reckless driving, inappropriate gear transmission.

I am getting mileage under 25kmpl of my R15S, how I increase the mileage? I always keep speed between 50 to 60.

Hi, Kunal yes 25 KMPL is very poor you should be getting around 40 KMPL it would appear there may be something wrong with you fuel injection system and since it's brand new and still under warranty I would take it back to the dealer for repair, your main fuel tank runs 10.8 LTR your reserve is 1.2 LTR for a total of 12 LTR the following tips are low cost easy to apply/install and guaranteed to give you better gas mileage and a smoother running bike. The average motorcycle gets 56-64 KMPL. saving .2 Litre of gas could save you a 10 Kilometer walk. 125cc scooters have been known to get 185 KMPL.and more.
1. Proper tire inflation as per MFG. specifications wheels should be balanced and spokes tight.
2. Oil and coolant levels maintained at full marks, low levels produce excessive heat that causes the engine to work harder and reduces efficiency.
3. Keep extra weight to a minimum.
4. Take off from a dead stop should be smooth and easy throttle applied avoid excessive throttle snaps.
5. Smaller windshields get better KMPH than large ones, wind resistance increases as a square of the speed at which you're traveling. For example, at 112 KMPH, wind resistance is double what it is at 80 KMPH (70 squared is almost twice as much as 50 squared). That will dramatically reduce your mileage. Keep that in mind while biking.
6. Keep idle time to a bare minimum or turn off the engine.
7. Re-jet carburetor with a smaller main and mid-range jet.
8. Keep chain/belt properly adjusted.
9. Avoid quick braking, hasty acceleration, high-speed driving, try driving the speed limit and keep a constant speed.
10. On long trips use freeways or flat straight stretches of highways rather than city or rural routes avoid hills and mountains when possible.
11. Keep your engine clean, dirt and grease/oil hold in heat.
12. A full-face helmet is more aerodynamic than other types of helmets. Any other clothing that decreases your aerodynamic should be reconsidered.
13. Any unnecessary bling on your bike is going to decrease fuel efficiency.
14. Use high-quality fuel using low-quality fuel can cause sludge in your fuel injectors.
15. Keep warm up time to a minimum get off the choke ASAP.
16. Motorcycles run best when their engines are maintained, and that includes making sure the air filter is clean, the spark plugs are fresh, the fuel filter is free, and the timing/valves are adjusted.

Pls tell me the actual mileage after 1st servicing? and how to improve its mileage condition? the mileage is the main hedeache after purchasing Yamaha SZR..........pls. solve it...

I have not used Yamaha SZR. But I know Yamaha bikes are not popular for fuel efficiency. Although, I can say that with proper carburetor adjustment & running the bike between 50-60 kph improves the mileage a lot. I had RX-100, to which I was getting 50-57kmpl in Mumbai. People at the time weren;t getting average more than 35kmpl. It was a 2 stroke engine. I used to make the carburetor adjustment myself. When I service the bike from the service centre, the mileage was dropping by 10kmpl. So, you adjust the carburetor in such a manner that keep the idling speed at a level when the engine is just not stopping by adjusting the idling speed screw & adjust carburetor throttle screw to the smooth noise (minimum) of the engine. People used to keep engine running at traffic signal. If the signal is to change after 20-30 secs, shut off the engine. Avoid raising the throttle unnecessarily. Try to be at the top gear in optimum distance. I was using oils from Indianoil. Any other oil was dropping my mileage. Clean the Air Filter with petrol & moist it with oil once in a month. I think this may be helpful to you in achieving more mileage.

Poor Gas Mileage

its on the fire wall yes it will help some i wouldnt expect a drastic change in fuel economy because acura dosent have a replacement schedule for fuel filters like most car companies. id check your air filter and if your check engine light is on it will seriously kill your mpg. hope this helps
