If you say all the hoses and clamps are in good order, then the only other things that come to mind are the wastegate and exhaust manifold. Either the wastegate is opening too soon, or the exhaust manifold is leaking from the gasket or a crack. This would mean that either you lose boost too early, or you never get enough boost in the first place. Or, if ...

The car has not been driving long. As the others have said, the water comes from the combustion of the fuel. When the exhaust system is cold, it cools the exhaust enough that the water can condense. After a while of operation, the exhaust system heats up. The same water vapor is present in the exhaust, but it stays vapor and doesn't drip.

Every gallon of fuel your vehicle burns produces a gallon of water out of the exhaust. If the weather is cold you will see it as steam. If the rear of the exhaust system is still cold even in warm weather it will be for a short time after start-up, you will see the drips. On a hot engine/exhaust you will not see any drips from the tail-pipe. If there are ...

It signifies that the car is running absolutely correct. Here is the reason why: A gasoline (petrol) molecule is made up as such: C8H18 (or 8 Carbon atoms and 18 Hydrogen atoms) Energy is obtained from the combustion of it by the conversion of a hydrocarbon to carbon dioxide and water. The combustion of octane follows this reaction: 2 C8H18 + 25 O2 → ...

I think it may be due bad fuel injectors. The problem is in the injectors. You should clean the injectors. Hope this will work for you.

A 'sudden' drop in mileage means a component has failed, especially if it was some time after the service. The first thing to do in this sort of event is to do a leak-off test on the injectors. If an injector has failed this will show it. A faulty injector will allow a lot more fuel through, usually accompanied with black smoke from the exhaust. Second ...

Mileage drop from 20 to 12 kmpl is certainly not your fault. And yes, driving habits really reflect your driving style, but 20 kmpl to 12?? I really don't think so unless you are a rally professional. We can start with the following steps. Needless to say, most of them. You might have already done most of it yourself. Hopefully this fixes your issue. ...
