rough idea is 9 kmpl in city and 13 above highway
Ok... I heard it should give around 10- 11 in city and 13-15 on highway
I have also heard that if catalytic converter is replaced with irridium plugs ... Fuel economy gets superb
Ummm had a manual one, used to be around 11.5km/l in city (Islamabad) and on Motorway was around 14-15. But I used to DRIVE and I am not into hypermilling 1.8 rekhani hai tu enjoy to karo

So changing the plugs I.e. one we usually changed to NGK irridium plugs does not make any difference ... right??
my 2006 altis auto, that i have had for over 6 years has always done 15-16km/l on the motorway and 8.5 in stop start traffic driving in city and overall 10km/l in normal city driving on main roads. Ac full time on and it makes no difference anyway on these 1.8 engines on fuel eco and i dont baby the car and instead make good use of the 1.8. no need to mess with plugs or catalytic convertor, use original iridum plugs mentioned in the owners manual and they should be of the correct heat range.
i use fully synthetic oil of 0W-40 viscosity, using lower or higher viscosity than this can also affect fuel economy for better or worse but i feel this grade offers the best protection.
