I've been a member here for a while and I have owned two metro convertibles, one metro hatchback, and 5 or 6 swift gt's.
I started having a competition with my buddy over who could get the best gas mileage during these last several months.
My current swift gt is a 94, 200k miles, 2 inch exhaust with stock muffler, computer chip, lowering springs, zero rust- which is rare in chicago hooray!
My personal best ever with the car was 41-42 mpg. Then this past week I filled up after not driving hard at all, trying to draft more, and all city driving, some country but all stop and go traffic on a 24 mile commute to and from work, and I beat my old record. I got 43.34 mpg, and I am hoping to reach 45!
I'll keep you guys posted. What's the best you have all done with a swift gt?

my best so far has been about 46-47mpg. although ive never really tried to push it to the limit. i own a 01 swift w the sohc16v. 5spd. but now i put on some 15"rims with 195/50 so it has cut down my mpgs a bit. but now it handles very well!!! hope you meet your goal bud.
