I m thinking about buying this car, though one thing i would like to know is that the dealer is giving me a discount on a 2010 model that he has and not on the 2011 model. So technically is there and changes at all made in the car during 2010 till date? Is it ok to buy a 2010 model?
But I've heard issues regarding the pick up and air conditioning as well as the mileage of the petrol variant. Does the diesel one surpass these speculations?
Also if Yes, would the diesel require higher maintenance?
My running isn't that much.
Maximum 30km per day, but more than 100km on weekends.

There are no changes what so ever in the 2010 and 2011 models of the i20, its just the year of manufacturing that changes and you can demand a fat discount on it.
Initially, Hyundai Elite i20 Magna comes with a petrol and diesel engine but a CNG kit can be fitted with the one which has petrol engine. You will have to sacrifice with power to get more fuel economy and if you convert a petrol car into a CNG car, you may loose the warranty on the car and resale value of CNG cars is lesser than petrol cars. It is always recommended to get the CNG kit fitted from the authorized service center so that you can avail the warranty services as well. Moreover, the performance will depend on how the car is driven and maintained.

How much fuel goes into a car varies on a lot of factors. Now you haven't mentioned how many km did you drive post the low fuel warning light as that could also determine how much fuel goes into the car. Even though the manual says that the tank capacity is 45 litres, the amount can vary by a small margin, give or take 2 or 3 litres. Also filling fuel in the hot day or in the night also makes a difference considering fuel expands during the hot day and contracts when the temperature is cooler. All said and done, make sure you fuel up within 3 to 4 km after the low fuel indicator light pops up.
