    Default CDI in Mehran / FX (Fuel Saving???)

    Salam,


    I want to ask experts if I add CDI in Suzuki FX. How much fuel saving I will get?


    I have a Suzuki FX (my friend has Mehran), both have very good ehgines(FX recently overhauled) and I get about 135km in CNG 50 cylinder. about Rs. 2.5 per km.


    If I replace my current distributor with CDI, how much fuel saving I will get?


    Is it possible to replace only point with CDI and distributor cap?(not the distributor assembly)


    How much it cost?


    Please experts answer me as soon as possible.

    By usig CDI starting of ur car will drastically improve,but there will be no significant improvement in fuel economy.Any expert auto electrician can easily convert the existing distributor on CDI without replacing the whole distributor asseymbly and it will cost about 1200 ~ 1500 rupees.

    I get about 135km in CNG 50 cylinder. about Rs. 2.5 per km.





    I get 170-180 kms in city with 56 cylinder in city driving on Xli (1300 cc)


    Used to get 180-200 with 50 cylinder on Khyber (1000cc)





    Fx which is 800 cc should do more, I guess

    autophile!!! You


    said: "used to get 180-200 with 50 cylinder on Khybe" how ???




    please explain because my brother gets 150km in city with 55 cylinder on khyber.




    Please tell me about a good electrician who can do this CDI thing in Malir, specially at choota gate(if any) or anywhere else if u know.




    please experts comment and tell me more details as i think CDI should give fuel economy as someone said on some forum. As, because of good pickup, u press less accelerator.




    please comment...

    there is a difference between karachi and islamabad , u will get less mileage in karachi city as there is more rush / traffic etc as compared with islamabad.
    something fishy about number of total posts !!!!

    @naveed_sid. Yes there is difference between the gas, traffic congestion but I also pay attention to regular maitenance and always use good quality lubircants and filters and drive calmly.

    autophile,


    I also do regular tunning and use ZIC Hiflo after 3500kms. I drive very calm. but I get 140km at max with 50 cylinder.
    please advise me how u get such a great mileage so that we all will benefit from it.


    One thing more, I have direct radiator fan so is it the cause of poor mileage?

    Also experts, any other advise about CDI and mileage also???

    @ smartboy_am. your mechanic is not expert. the cdi distridutor cover is completely sealed and no chance of water can gets into it.

    Dear Brothers...
    CDI system is only for ignition circuit..it has nothing to do with fuel economy....and offcourse it is better that point system.

    and about the difference in mileage......the quality of gas is different at different pumps....I analysed this personally....when I get it from shell or pso..it is fine...agar kisi asma bano waghaira pumps se dalwao to ******....pressure ka bhi farak hota hai aur quality ka bhi....hawa bhar detay hain sath mai gas k sath..
    2.5/km is fine because incity traffic is simply a mess

    @naveed_sid. Brother new engines are more fuel efficient. Mehran engine is now about 20 year old. Today's 1800cc engines are now giving the milage, which 1000-1300 cc old engines used to give.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Ok leme tell you guys about the performance difference of Electronic and Point system.

    Point.

    1 - Regular maintainance needed
    2- Reguar adjustment or replacement needed of point after some time.
    3- At high RPM points loses its capability and starts to bounce.
    4- The current out flow can be variable at different RPM.
    5- Fuel economy will suffer if point is not properly adjusted or too old because weak spark means ur engine needs to push hard to generate power required.

    Electronic ignition

    1- No Maintainance needed
    2- Excelent current flow and spark at all RPM
    3- Starting and Fuel economy improves because of better spark.
    4- Car pickup and overall performance increases by atleast 15 to 20% if proper Ignition is used not the after market kits.
