    Actually the road u drive on is really hard one to travel in our area... U can increase the width of tires on 13 inch rim for better GC..

    165/70/14 will increase G.C. by 1.4 Inches. 1 Inch due to increase in Radius of Rims and 10 mm due to increase in side wall measurement of Tire. Correct me, if i am wrong.

    Mileage on this road has been increased by 02 km/L, due to filling of ' KHADDAS ' by K.P.K. Government. Thanks to her for waking-up.

    Alhumdulilah completed 1000km on my Aqua after purchase on 28/9/15.
    Drove 390 km on Lhr-Isb motorway speed was between 120-160 all the time with ECO on & AC got average of 24.5/ltr.
    Engine is very responsive & soundless.
    Seats are very comfortable.
    Suspension is very very soft.
    Car balance is too good.
    AC with climate control is very good.
    No engine sound in cabin.
    Meter is attractive.
    Controls on steering are very helpful.
    Projector & Auto Headlights with adjustment.
    Very good boot space.
    Leg space of back seats is little less but if 4 persons are on board then no issue.
    I m more satisfied in city ride coz with all mentioned goodies I m enjoying average of 25 with all time AC.
    الحمدللہ. Very much satisfied

    Don't you think, With that much high mileage, the battery will already on the edge of dying, having consumed considerable cycles out of it's designed value?

    "The battery pack in any hybrid Toyota is warranted either for 10 years or 150,000 miles (in states with California emissions laws) or 8 years or 100,000 miles in all other states."

    (Reference:
    http://www.greencarreports.com/news/1059907_the-ultimate-guide-toyota-prius-battery-life-cost-and-warranty)

    Batteries in modern hybrids are designed to last for at least 100,000 miles -- some might even hit the 150,000-mile mark with proper care and maintenance.

    (Reference:
    http://www.carsdirect.com/green-cars/3-tips-to-maximize-hybrid-car-battery-life)

    Battery life cycle[edit]

    As the Prius reached ten years of being available in the U.S. market, in February 2011 Consumer Reports decided to look at the lifetime of the Prius battery and the cost to replace it. The magazine tested a 2002 Toyota Prius with over 200,000 miles on it, and compared the results to the nearly identical 2001 Prius with 2,000 miles tested byConsumer Reports 10 years before. The comparison showed little difference in performance when tested for fuel economy and acceleration. Overall fuel economy of the 2001 model was 40.6 miles per US gallon (5.79 L/100 km; 48.8 mpg-imp) while the 2002 Prius with high mileage delivered 40.4 miles per US gallon (5.82 L/100 km; 48.5 mpg-imp). The magazine concluded that the effectiveness of the battery has not degraded over the long run.[146] The cost of replacing the battery varies between US$2,200 and US$2,600 from a Toyota dealer, but low-use units from salvage yards are available for around US$500.[146] One study indicates it may be worthwhile to rebuild batteries using good blades from defective used batteries.[147]

    I agree Aqua will b a big hit in next 6 months, 4/4.5 Grade Aqua S package with multimedia steering & milage around 80000km will cost you 16.40-16.75.

    These both are the same anyways. 40 means that it can operate under higher temperatures. So go for this one.

    And blue bottle 5w30 is semi synthetic not fully

    you are right Dr. Sab Aqua is gonna be a next big thing here in KHI as well im seeing more n more aquas daily here ... my passo still have 3 more years to be with me (acc. to company policy) so i'll buy after 3 years (jab tak parts sastay ho jaye *** heheheh)

    Have no experience of LM or Mobil 1, but higher viscosity generally means drop in fuel avg.

    Btw, I change oil at 7k Km. A+ is coming in new packing (5W20 is FE-7, i think)
    What viscosity oil are you using?
