  1. Read a few threads on Auto Lanka but need specific input on the 3000CC Petrol version of the vehicle. Any recommendations/advice for or otherwise will be greatly appreciated regarding the choice of the Engine, Reliability and Fuel Consumption of the vehicle. A little concerned as I received a few recommendations regarding getting the diesel instead of the petrol and saying that the reliability of the vehicle wasn't great. Need to get some real user input.
  2. Fellow AL experts, Hope everyone is safe & sound during these hard times. Please stay indoors/stay healthy. Let me rescue you from boredom by asking a question (again). So long story short, "unexpectedly/gladly" bought a Suzuki XBee after my previous thread. (Thank you all for helping me out and specially @Meraya ) So the question is, Japanese user manual says recommended fuel type is "Unleaded regular gasoline" (Roughly translated by Google translate) So I would like to ask the opinion of AL experts on what is the most suitable petrol available in Sri lanka which meets the specifications of Japanese "Unleaded regular gasoline"? My main concerns lays with term "Unleaded" on the user manual (And also with Sulfar content). I did some googling around & found information mentioned below. But those were not 100% accurate by any means. Therefore kindly I seek your advice on choosing best fuel for my new car. The engine is equipped with a Suzuki K10C engine (Turbo) with compression ratio of 10.0. I didn't bother looking at IOC as he comments on their products were not favorable and personally I would prefer to stay away from them. But at this point I will consider any available option. Thanks, -GBB-
  3. Hi, I'm a BMW E30 enthusiast and I'm in search for a good condition e30 to purchase within this month. I've seen some cars and their conditions were so bad that one car's doors wouldn't even close properly. Does anyone here know about any E30s that might be available for purchase? There are only a very few cars listed online and most of them are in very bad condition or modified to the point where its not a BMW e30 anymore. Also do you think is it a good idea to have an E30 a first car when it comes to the repairs and maintenance. I've been warned multiple times by car guys who never had a BMW. Any leads here would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  4. While driving, suddenly i got the above mentioned 2 indications popping up. I did a front wheel tyre rotation few days ago. This issue came after driving roughly about 100Km. Could that be a reason ? I have attached the pics for further clarification. I would like to get some idea abt this from anyone who had this issue before. Also, can someone recommend a place to get this checked up ? Or should i used Unit#d Mot#rs ?
  5. What are your thoughts on the MG 6 1800cc Turbo Petrol? It has so many damn options that I think a jap of similar category would look 1980ish.. And the ride is super awesome. God that power.And its a manual,which is fabulous. It has a 2 year or 60,000km warranty from bumper to bumper. Only thing pulling me back is its made in china and thailand. But the finishing is superb. Having used many euros, I can feel this also has the same feel to it in many ways. Please give me ur advice for me ro take a decision. Thanx... Oh its 6.3 million.

  10. I’m planing to clean my Petrol injectors tomorrow and think of doing it as below on Youtube. Has anyone here done this before? What is the recommended voltage to be given as pulse? I guess connecting 12V 45A car battery will not be recommended! What would be the Syringe size that could fix in to the injector neck? Does reverse cleaning required to take out any dirt clogged on inside injector filter? Thanks
  11. Does any one knows what is the method of differentiate octane 92 & 95? Is there any color different or any visual way? If nothing, that means we have to strict with what pump station refills? I know this might be somewhat silly but I have asked from several 95 users & they also not known about this.

  16. Note by the moderator : This post contains information neither endorsed nor supported by the Autolanka community. Readers are advised to read the entire thread and form their own conclusions. Hi everyone This is my second post on the forum. I think this post will help a lot of people to reduce their fuel bill on petrol and diesel vehicles. Going forward we will have lot of vehicles but empty tanks. I have been doing some R&D on engine efficiency and cleaner exhaust gazes for some years and decided to do an engine modification on my Prado to get some extra power and a full burn. For non-technical members it is simply modifying the air intake of the engine at a safer place to feed in HHO as a gas instead of normal air we breathe which is not 100% accounting to a full burn inside the combustion chamber. HHO is a combustion rich gas but the generation mechanism should be done with absolute safety precautions out of water. Luckily I have a friend of mine who has a Garage (Unfortunately in Gampaha, which is a bit far away) and he was nice enough to listen to me (instead of ignoring me as if I have gone crazy) and comply with all the safety precautions and install the unit. Some pictures are attached for enthusiasts. Results: Increased fuel consumption by 20-25% (Mix of city and long distance). I refill a full tank earlier around 360KM range. Now it is 440-450KM range. Increase of power. I can feel it in the depth of low end torch in the Engine which keeps going. Reduced carbon emissions to a good as new engine. This is a 1999 Prado. Less vibration on engine Quick start when you crank the engine Everyone should not jump into this modification. It is a NO for vehicles with warranty by agents (Those brand new shiny vehicles are not lucky enough to have this because they will say “You have modified the engine and now we are not responsible!!!”) So save it for a later date. This is good for engines about 5-7 years and beyond. Vehicles of this age are having different relationships between the owners and the vehicle as such a bit of tweaking will not hurt any feelings J. There is absolutely no harm in doing this modification because it is done outside the whole system. Safety is first in this installation. Is this a real innovation which I should patent? Well absolutely no, because lot of people know about this but no one cares about the safety. Instead I though everyone interested should benefit from this because it helps going green and hugging trees a little. Regards Nana
  17. Hi, I was wondering if a vehicle is converted from Petrol to Diesel, should the Diesel Tax be paid again for 7 continuous years?
