    Fuel Efficiency

    Hey! There’s been a couple of posts asking members how efficient various vehicles are on fuel. And with the prices going up by Rs.8/= and with news in the air that it will go up again by another Rs.3/= soon, its getting even more important… So what do you say we post the following details Vehicle : Transmission Type : Engine Capacity : Fuel : Km per Ltr (city/long distance) :
  2. i have ford laser 2000 (bj5p) which i brought few month ago. from the day i took this vehicle its fuel consumption is around 5 -6 kmpl. then i did a full tune up from sumudu automobiles, but problem was not solved . then my mechanic (sumudu automible) say that there were oil sluges inside my engine (some stranger noise also came) so he open the upper cover and then he says he need to open the head also. after that he says engine bor and pistons are also not in a good condition , then we replace engine "mottayak". but my problem is remain same. still fuel consumption is 5-6 kmpl. please help me this is my first car note- previous owner has bypass the alternator cable from ECU for some reason
  3. WagonR drivers, can you please post what kind of fuel consumption are you seeing with your cars in city as well as highway (outstation) driving? Is the much-talked-about fuel economy of these cars for real or is it just hype? Thanks for your information.
  4. Hi guys, i bought the axia last year and the fuel consumption was quite good but since of late I feel that the fuel consumption has increased. Am not sure what’s going on but any advise on this or any solution would be much appreciated. TIA

    Honda CR-V Fuel Consumption

    Hey There, I'm planning on importing a 2018 Honda CR-V 1.5L Turbo and would like to know about the fuel consumption of the vehicle from any current users? How does it do in City, Highway etc? Any other comments on the overall ownership of the vehicle is highly appreciated :) :)
  8. We have a Honda Civic EK3 Ferio Vtec Automatic 1996 JDM vehicle. My brother has recently bought it. We did the spark-plug replacement and injector cleaning. Also air filter and oil has been changed. Patrol filter is new and auto gear oil is also good according to technician. But we dont know whether previous owner has used Honda Multimatic oil for the gear box. Also few screws in the distributor is broke, thus we didn't had the chance clean it in the tune up. Now the problem is it's fuel consumption. It does 11.5 km per liter in the highway with AC on and speed at 100kmph. In Colombo consumption is 6.5 km per liter. I measured it full tank to full tank. Other than that when we accelerate from idling, it gives a strange metal scratching noise and a knock from timing belt area. Alternator belt and AC belt is also near to packing. Thus couldn't tell exactly what is the noise. It shows 150k mileage. But surely it has been reverted, I guess t has done more than 250k Any guesses about the problem.

    Ceypetco FUEL REFUND

    Recently I pumped 95 Octane worth Rs 3000 from a Ceypetco station and paid by card. And I asked for a receipt as well. After few days I was checking my online bank account and transactions and I saw a record like this, FUEL REFUND-LANKA FILLING STAT worth Rs 58 and few cents. What's the reason for this? Why did they refund this amount ? and if I payed by cash I would have never gotten this refund. Is this because they've pumped fuel worth less than Rs 3000 and since I got a receipt they wanted correct the error?
  11. Guys, what would be better vehicle? Vezel or Grace EX i mean, in every aspect, fuel consumption, riding pleasure, maintenance, and every way possible. (with the price of course) And how much Grace does in City ? and Vezel as well.... thanks in advance guys
  12. Hi guys, In my Nissan TIIDA 2008 (Automatc transmission) i had around 9 - 10 KMPL in city limits. This is after a full tune up. Before it had around 7 KMPL in city. By mentioning full, I meant Replaced Iridium plugs EFI / Throttle body cleaning Engine mounts In addition to this i had a engine miss due to burned ignition coil so replaced with two genuine coils. Also replaced air filter with a genuine air filter. Also I've recently replaced lower arm bushings, sub frame bushings etc. Now my problem is car doing around 6.5 KMPL in the city. I have driven around 5000KM after the tuneup and now it giving me this fuel figure . I'm driving carefully not to push it more than 2k RPM. Odo is around 96k and engine oil replacement coming in 98k. Never did a ATF change after i bought (ran around 15,000KM yet) this but when i check with dipstick oil having pink color. Tyre pressure 30 psi for all tires. Tune up done by Ravi (Bulugaha junction). When i went to see him last week regarding this matter he did a scan and showed me this readings (see attachment) saying fuel consumption should be good. Also he told me if I'm having this problem again, come back to him and he will give me a ignition coil set so i can try running with those. Do you guys have any suggestions on this problem ? Do i need to replace ATF and see ?
  13. I recently bought a Lancer Ex 2008 GLS which is a A/T car. I'm using 95 Octane as fuel. I can only get 8 to 9 KM/L out of it in city limits. I heard that manual Lancer EX does more than 12, 13 KM/L in city limits. My questions are Is there a ECO mode where I gain get more? Best practices to be followed(in A/T)? How can I improve? Any techniques or advice? Thanks in advance

    Is there a significant enhancement in fuel economy by replacing existing paper based air filter with Cone Air filter (Washable and reuse) in a regular car? I have seen some people using this on their cars.

    Hi, I came across this gadget in the web and would like to know your experiences and ideas about it. Does it really work? as the manufacturers say this is the way it works "FUELSHARK - HOW IT WORKS JUST PLUG AND SAVE! The components in your car's electrical system are interconnected with each other. To get superior performance from your car, it must have a clean electrical circuit environment.

To maintain optimum electrical performance and improve MPG, your car will run better with a stable voltage environment. The Fuelshark provides just that. It is a multi-purpose Voltage Stabilizer. Fuelshark's design instantly stabilizes your car's electrical system, resulting in better fuel efficiency and overall performance. By stabilizing your car's electrical system, one big benefit is that your engine's spark plugs deliver a strong even spark, resulting in better combustion. This can increase power and MPG, in addition to having cleaner emissions. This revolutionary technology provides consumers with an inexpensive way to save money at the gas pump and help our environment at the same time. Better yet, there are no installation charges. Just plug the Fuelshark into your cars lighter adapter and the blue light will let you know that the Fuelshark is working, and reminds you that you are saving money! '

  24. Update : Bought a starlet. Details see the thread. Hi fellows. My question is a big and like a question paper but hope it will help you to give me a good answer. My requirements are Manual gear car with good fuel economy. budget around 1.1-1.4 and max 1.65 A good resale value. not sure how long Im going to keep it. Maybe from 3 to 5+ years I prefer diesels because we own a townace lotto van (57-xxxx) in our family for about 10years now. Did a full engine overhaul about 8 years [email protected] edirisinhas and still no any problem. I don't want a fast car and ok with the town-ace like performance and feel. Don't care about boot space but leg space will be needed. Prefer hatchbacks but sedans are too ok. My monthly traveling will be bellow 500km but if its good for pocket will do more. I've read over 2,3 times the threads that talks about above models in topics. But i need more to decide.
