    he called me a week later which i could not go because i had to leave from paki. but im sure if i had gone he would have done it (maybe )

    he did the tuning and he wanted me to change the fuel filters which in the second meeting.. but because of time constraints i did not but if you find someone let me know because i also have the same car as yours

    So where in North Karachi.
    The name of the mechanic and the shop name?
    Did he really improve your fuel mileage in 500 rupees?
    Was it efficient enough to reach to your desired fuel mileage?
    I meant like atleast rs 15/km??

    he said i will have to come to him two times which i did not go (my mistake) but yes i will really say that he helped me improve the average because before he did anything my car was giving me around 6-7km/L and after he just did the tuning it started giving me 10km/L or may be more i did not measure the exact one.

    he said to run the car in the same setting for a week and then come for further settings and all which i did not go because i had to leave the country.
    but when i am coming back i am surely going to him..

    i did not feel robbed at all because he did improve the mileage and above all he did not give me the 'ullu bana dia' feeling
    he knew what he was doing..

    Default New tyres?

    Ok sir, done all of this by some mechanic in my area.

    Now what tyres should I get, my tyres are very fat.

    I heard 175/65/R14 are the optimum ones for fuel economy, comfort and performance(grip).

    Now which company tyres do I get? Yokohama, Michelin, Dunlop, BridgeStone or any other?
    And at what price can I get 4 new ones or refurbished ones?

    At what prices can we get nice rims, not alloys which are expensive

    Congrats my mileage has increased a little bit.

    At first it was giving like 70-75K kms in 1000 Rs but now i'ts giving like 100-105 km.
    I did all that Xulfiqar said, and now we're practicing hypermiling.

    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/per...eage-petrol-15


    I currently have 165/80/R13 for my IDSI.

    Is it really worth getting the rims for 14 inch?
    Will it improve my mileage, and if so then approx how much % ??

    We don't want to get alloy rims because they're expensive like 19K or something.

    Or can I get re-used ones? How much for 4 rims?

    And what will be the price for decent steel rims 14 inch? Any idea?

    AOA. I have Honda City Vario 2006, have done 88000 plus, my car's tyre size is 185/65/R14 and its petrol average is 11-12 km/liters w/o ac and 13-14 with ac. After purchase in Sep this year just got it checked by Honda Authorized Dealers. They just changed fuel filter & CVT Oil. Although they charged a lot for their check-ups. Nevertheless its going fine. Alhamdollilah.

    I'm using Michelin Energysaver for the last 3 years. Size is 185/65/R14. total mileage is 75k Kms and still good to go for atleast another 25 to 30km. They are soft enough for a comfortable noise free ride yet hard enough to last much longer than regular dunlops and yokos. Its one of the most expensive tyres in the market yet it desrves this much. If thats not enough, there isn't a single puncture on any of the four tyres.

    The max mileage i got from my city iDSI 2005 is 23km/litre on hypermiling at conitnuous 75-80km/hr speed on the motorway from Lhr to Isloo and back to Lhr (with some city driving as well) in 2 days. I still get around 16-17km/litre in city driving if i use light foot and careful driving. Total mileage on the odo is 161k as of today as I just got back from Mangla. I hope that will help.
