    Default Toyota Corolla GLI Poor Fuel Efficiency

    I have a corolla GLI (Pak assembled) 99 AT. It does about 120 KM on 55 pounds cylinder in city. is it OK? But the problem is that on patrol it does only 10 KM/L on highway. A mechanic asked me to replace the injectors with that of VITZ. but one my friends is of the opinion that it will ultimately weaken the engine.


    Any Expert Opinion?


    Thanks

It's a very ruff, mean place, and no matter how tuff you think you are, it will always bring you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it.You or nobody ain't never gonna hit as hard as life, but it ain't about how hard you hit, it's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward, how much you can take and keep moving forward. If you know what you're worth, go out and get what you're worth, but you gotta be willing to take the hit."

    Thanks

    What else do you want from 1.6L engine? i believe 10Kmp/l is justified anything greater then or equal to 10 is good and cng mileage is also good. Your Mechanic is Dumbass how can he use vitz injectors which i believe is either 1.3L or 1.0L in a 1.6L car? Get your car completely tuned and see the difference not from roadside ustads.

    at 1st available time slot please change the auto transmission fluid & filter BOTH. USE Toyota transmission fluid and Genuine Filter this prescription will cost you under Rs. 10,000 but will improve upon the vehicle handling & fuel economy. for your own safety as a vehicle user please READ THIS

    It gives BAD GATEWAY error.
    What is your opinion about injector change. should go for it. I have used ZIC ATF when AT fluid was deficient. is it ok. One of the mechanics here in Peshawar told me that AT filter is not available in Pakistan. Do you know where can I get it?
