    Thanks 4084 for the info on spark plugs.

    I am a reader of this post from page 1.... to like page 50.... so far I learned that Passo gives 15-17 Km easily... there are many pics giving more till 23 km / ltr as well but that I thought of Highway drive.

    Correct me if I am wrong.

    my passo 2010 gives 630 KM in 35 Litres of Petrol without AC hence 18KM/L in winters so these are not fake
    and with AC she goes 570 KM i.e. 16 KM/L

    i usually drive with AC switch ON and OFF so getting 17 KM/L on average.

    I have changed its spark plugs to original Toyota, still no major recovery. Engine oil is good enough to run 1000 kms more (As advised by my mechanic) thats why I didnt change.

    PS; i have checked ECO mode but no gain.
    Give me 14km/l without a/c

    And 12 with a/c

    With little heavy foot.

    Also note that i use 50% hobc

    These claims are not fake. We should try to find out technical reasons while discussing, blaming others will shut down our brains.
    What are mileage plugs? How it is technically different from stock plugs?
    I am always against modifications due to following reasons.
    1. Modified parts are mostly not compatible with the machine.
    2. Modified parts are designed to solve a problem, but they create new problems.
    However i will well come any positive change, if it comes with technical specifications, so that one can judge for any adverse effects other than solving the main issue . COLD PLUGS, MILEAGE PLUGS are the names given by some individual. These are not technical names.

    Mileage of this car depends upon following.
    1. Driving on D mode.
    2. Driving on S mode.
    3. Driving with eco ON.
    4. Driving with eco OFF.
    5. Driving with light / heavy foot.
    6. AC ON / OFF.
    7. Highway drive / City drive. Even town drive.
    Combination of these few can widely effect mileage on this CVT transmission equipped car. Try different combinations, like eco on D mode light foot smooth drive ( avoid harsh driving) it may improve mileage. In my opinion your decision of changing plugs so early was not good. But leave it and go ahead.

    One Passo had W3 on boot and it was so good that no one can say that it was sprayed...

    e.g use of petrol, oils , daily maintance , etc and if possible mechanical troubleshoots.
    Stay blessed
    Thank u sir...
    Will try to do it someday inshAllah...

    2. The pairing allows for attending calls. There is a small mic attached to the steering which connects directly with the player so you do not have to shout to be heard.

    Only thing that is now left is navigation maps which i do not think is possible
    Use sygic for navigation on your phone

    Also its manufacturing date was old so he suggests me these one.

    Anyone know of this company and have experience of these tires?

    Important thing is to check petrol u are using...
    ...
    For e.g. I get good petrol last weekend, travelled on motorway, of gave me average of 18.5 from Islamabad to Lahore with 5 adults on board
    ...
    On way back, petrol quality wasn't good, it gave me 14.5 with 2 adults and 3 children and some luggage
    ...
    Again got good petrol yesterday, got average above 22 on GT road with one person onboard...

    I checked dunlop and bridgestone beside these and both were hard from these. So i decided to go for this one

    How was the drive when you installed them on ur mehran ?

    Means noise on road, grip, jump etc?

    One more thing, is 175 size ok for passo ?
    What is ur fuel average after this size?
    175 is best for Passo....
    ...
    FF comes in 155 on steel rims and 165 on alloys
    ...
    So 175 is good enough

    Let see in future how they perform on high speed.

    I have kept the air pressure to 30 for now. Any advice on it?
    30 psi is ok for 175

    I usually filled 32-34 in 165 profile...
