I am using Liqui Moly its changing interval is longer, means 8-10 k KM, but fueal average is almost same... Zic should be changed around 7-8 K Km...

    Thank you Dr. Usman,
    This is Fahad, we have bought this car from you. The car is in Extremely good condition and we are thoroughly satisfied with the car and your service. Everything about the car was exactly as it was advertised and described by you.

    We were not aware of the broken tail light but Dr sb brought a new extra light to replace the broken one. One thing I would particularly like to mention is the fuel economy of this car. We filled the fuel tank (till auto stop) from Zoom pump after receiving the car and when we reached Lahore via GT road covering more than 300km, the fuel average according to car computer was 22.5, which was kind of unbelievable for me. I thought that the car's ecu has overestimated it, so I topped up the tank again after reaching Lahore, and to my surprise the actual average was over 25km/l. It consumed only 12 liter fuel for 306km. I was gentle with the throttle and didn't cross the speed limit, but still this mileage is extremely impressive (MashaAllah). And it's significantly better than my Honda Fit Hybrid.

    Thanks Again.

    Some words regarding ZOOM Petrol...

    I have used petrol of different brands in last few months including Shell, PSO, Total etc... And all of them require some mixture of Hi Octane for good performance and knock less drive...

    I am using ZOOM petrol for last 2 weeks and to my surprise, there is no knocking issue even without Hi Octane and performance is best... getting 18-19 km/L...

    ZOOM petrol pump on my way is at Motorway Chowk, 26 no chungi, near gate of G-15, on GT road... I strongly recommend that pump and zoom petrol for JDMs...

    @gorkan told me that RON of Zoom is higher than other brands in Pakistan...

    What is the utility of ECO idle, is it really helpful to increase mileage in our traffic conditions...? Of course it would be of no use on highway...
    The eco-idle mode is more useful for stopping for red lights, rather than stopping and crawling in a traffic jam. It's start stop is not as effortless as my other car.

    Zoom petrol is giving me an average of 13.5. I have only used the car on congested intra-city roads. Have not tried any other petrol yet. I want to calculate the actual mileage when the fuel tank gets empty. The fuel gauge still shows 2 points
