    Default Toyota Passo 2014 - Initial Maintenance Required for Best Performance

    Hi Everyone,

    I am owner of Passo 2014, imported in 2016. I have checked its fuel consumption which turns out to only 9.7-9.8 Km per Liter, which is pretty disappointing. I have got it only yesterday (16.05.16).

    Please suggest to me what should I look for/change/replace to get the ideal fuel consumption of 17-18 Km per Liter.

    Best Regards,
    Ahmed Mujtaba

    Solution
    Getting fuel average in one day is difficult.
    At-least drive a full tank to get more accurate results.
    How many kilometers it has driven?

    FLUIDS
    Engine oil should be of very low viscosity like 5w-20, 0w-30 or 5w-30. These oils gives best fuel consumptions. Use recommended oil filter. Match its code before installing.
    Make sure its has CVT gear oil and its full.
    Radiator has only Water or coolant? (if water then using good quality pre-mixed coolant is suggested).
    Fuel it up from good station and mix 20~30% Hi Octane.


    ENGINE
    Change the spark plugs.
    Get the throttle body cleaned.
    Engine RPMs should be properly checked and set to ideal (I guess it should be in between 700~800).
    Use good quality air filter. Very important.
    Water closely that Radiator is not clogged with dust.


    ALIGNMENT
    Alignment should be correct.
    Wheel should be balanced.
    Air pressure 26-28 psi (I keep it 26 psi in summer and mostly 28 psi in winters)


    A/C AIR FILTER
    Many people doesn’t care. But it has A/C air filter that need to be replaced as well.

    A/C Air filter really has something related to Fuel Consumption ? I need to know. Thanks
