    Default Need Advise of Experts on Mileage Issue with Suzuki Margallah

    Dear Experts,

    I am stating the problem below along with relevant details. Need your expert advise to resolve the issue at hand.

    Car Details:

    Suzuki Margallah with stock G13B Carby Engine Driven 260K KM. No issues with the performance. Maintained on Fully Synthetic 10-40 Oil (suits with better idle and improved mobility experience). Proper regular maintenance at every 5K KM.

    Had been using LUCAS 4 TIP plugs and was getting at least 11.5-12 KM/L until May 2014 (sometimes even better).

    Issue:

    Car's milage has dropped to 9.5-10.5 KM/L for no apparent reason since last 4 months.

    Fixes applied:

    Plugs have been cleaned (seems irrelevant since there is no starting or performance issue any way).
    A loose hose pipe (for vaccum) has been replaced on carburator, was making shan-shan noise.
    A loose fuel pipe has been replaced.
    Fuel system cleaner from STP has been poured.
    Carburator cleaner from STP has been poured several times (does improve idle and smoothes the drive). Used once a month any way.
    Gear Oil has been changed with Caltex Thuban SAE 90.
    Car Alignment has been re done (believe me it does improve the milage of the car - as per my previous experience).

    A sympton of some issue that i had been observing is a strong petrol smell (for about 20-30 sec) once there is less fuel in the tank and i turn off the engine. Mechanic says that he couldn't find any blockage in the exhaust of fuel tank.

    Result:

    Haven't seen any improvement in milage it is still between 9.5-10.5 KM/L.

    Way Ahead:

    Currently using LUCAS 4 TIP plugs which are in good nick, no issues with starting or idle or acceleration. They are being used for at least 30-40K KMs. Previous Bosch 4 TIP plugs worked 100K KMs without any issue.

    Does changing these plugs with NGK platinum (single tip) be of any use and will improve the milage?

    Using OEM plug wires came with the car in 1998, should i change these to any good 8 MM or 10 MM wires?

    Orignal cylincer came with car Made by Sanki Japan is making small noises like chan chan, should i change it now (since mechanic suggested no need since no apparent issue). I believe if exhaust system is in precise condition it does improve the milage as well.

    I will really appreciate your feed back.

    Regards

    If the car reduces water, fill the reservior a few times. It will stop disappearing eventually. If it starts to maintain the same level, you can now use coolant.

    However, please confirm if your radiator is copper or aluminum core.

    Take off the cap, scrape the jali with a screwdriver to reveal metal.

    If it is pink, you have copper, else aluminum.

    There are different coolants for copper and aluminum.

    P.s keep a spare radiator cap in your car, the kabli one is not trustworthy.

    I think i might have to change the rear dholki (currently orignal Sankei Japan) coz of some bur bur sound i am hearing from the back.

    Please suggest if i should go for a cultus Kabli Sankei dholki taken from 1.0 Efi Car. or something aftermarket.

    please advice.

    the muffler cannot be repaired so replace at will

    goto a famous silencer repair shop, look at the parts they are offering and get a quote.

    sankei mufflers are available brand new too.. chances are that the shop would have them in stock

    i tried to rub the inner core of carburator with a screw driver. looked pinkish to me from inside. so its copper probably.

    please suggest the appropriate coolant.
