At one time my Swift was getting about 250 kms per tank, which isn't good. It turned out to be a slipping clutch. With a new clutch, it went up to 300 - 350 kms.

Definitly sounds bad. Whats you definition of 'city'? average of 30mph of slow and go, or average of a walking pace with 90% ideling?

Its hard to say where to start, probably more than one thing. Possible; clogging exaust, bad carb tuning, bad compression, bad ignition timing, bad cam timing etc. Did it do better in the past. Was the change all of a sudden or gradual?
