    Default Alto 660cc Average Problem

    Hi guys,
    I am based in Islamabad and have 660cc alto (auto transmission), the problem is it is giving really poor average... almost 10-11km/litre with AC on in city drive. We don't encounter any traffic jams normally, and drive is smooth too... Do you suggest any mechanic in Islamabad who can tune it up and enhance the fuel average?

    I had a tunning done from F-10, the mechanic had few sensors attached to machine and he checked exhaust and engine of the car, performed some tune up and said car is fine. but still I dont see any change in fuel average.

    Please suggest.

    have u tried changing the fuel filter and auto transmission oil? and i think 10-11km/lit is very good for a 660cc!

    I replaced ATF oil around 7-8k kms back. its a 2008 model and I use PSO/total's full synthetic oil (I suppose its 5w-30) and the oil is maintained on regular basis 3000kms). It is a 2 wheel drive car.

    I'm not sure if a 660cc engine should give on 10-11km/litre? Given the traffic conditions are not bad in islamabad and the car is driven in efficient manner.

    I havent got fuel filter changed because it is perhaps not available in islamabad and the mechanic didnt recommend it. Any suggestions?

    Thanks guys, can you tell me any place in islamabad/rwp where I can get a original/satisfactory fuel filter for alto 660cc?
    I'm still confused as to why there is not much of a difference in fuel average in 660cc cars vs 1300/1500cc efi cars!

    P.S: i'm not sure status of airbags? do they have to do anything with average?

    If your car has a catlytic converter, has it been checked for choking? A chocked converted will require your enging to work harder (burn more fuel) to do the same job. Internet says the 660cc Suzuki Alto should do about 15km/l in the city, but blogs of owners say is more like 10-11km/l in the city.

    I expect a bit more from a 660cc as compare to what I am getting from a 1500cc. I'm not a technical guy, just trying to understand why a 660cc has same 10kmpl average and a 1500cc as well! Kei cars are boasted for their fuel efficiency, i'm just trying to connect the dots. I do understand the concept of engine capacity and load, therefore there won't be much difference in highway average... But I fail to understand the reasons behind such low average within city.

    Thanks.

    ever seen on discovery / national geographic channel, an elephant dragging wooden log pushing it into water stream for reaching point a to point b. why horses & mules are not used for this kind of job . while in reality both are used as cargo / wagon pullers.

    apply that on KEI class

    the physical weight & dimensions of car plus the wheel size, the "environment" & road conditions will seriously dent your expectations of 15 km/litre.

    Correct. But that example applies when you are moving on the highway. KEI cars will have to push more as compare to a 1500cc sedan, resulting same average on highway. But within city... ideally, a small engine should be less hungry. Consider this, when you are stopped over the signal, to keep engine alive which will consume less fuel, a 660 or 1500?

    do you really believe that a KEI 660 will take same time between Lahore & Pindi over motorway with 4 adults as a 1.3 sedan & consume less fuel ?

    your kei car will do wonders if you drive it at 1200 rpm - which means 40 km/h in top gear all day long. These cars were not meant for "super fuel efficiency - they are meant to cater to a specific tax bracket.

    let me give you a simple example.

    I have a 3.2 litre engine car - the car weighs a lot more than your kei - by your rationale it should consume twice the fuel of a 1.6 litre engine, (sola dunee batees) - while infact it does not. converting to km/lit I get about 10.5 km/lit (25 mpg)

    odd isnt it?
