    Default Suggestions to improve fuel economy of Toyota passo

    Keep tyre pressure 35 psi and do wheel alignment after 45 days.
    Drive carefully to avoid bumps.
    Use engine oil ZIC X7 0W-30 (8 to 10km change interval) with VIC Filter (O-117).
    Use Yokohama ECO Tyres.
    Then enjoy the fuel economy of your car.

    i disagree on using 0w oil in Pakistan
    its for sub zero climates, frozen round the year like North pole probably

    and i also disagree on getting car alignment done after 45 days
    unless suspension work is done or you have hit the car really hard in a pot hole probably

    rest is good...

    14-15 km/ltr
    But I wait after engine start idol (green light engine cold).
    The lower the number before W the more the fuel economy u get.
    0W can be used in our country also.
    The important thing in 0w30 is 30. It is for summer.
    Don't use 0w20 or 5w20 in pakistan.
    U r right there is no need to do wheel alignment after 45 days but I m suggesting to do wheel alignment after 45 days if u have 35 psi tyre pressure.

    not to forget using mixture of hi-octan with regular fuel by 60-40 ratio or 50-50 ratio

    that will also effect fuel economy and performance a lot.

    for oil, Zic 0w30 and 5w20 both are good

    Japan climate is different from us
    they have rain/snow(cooler climate) and hence all wheel drive cars as well ( which nobody wants to buy here)

    May be you are right?
    Check this chart, it tells different story for 0W-30.
    I checked SAE website. They don't have SAE Grades vs environment temperature.

    Dont ruin your engine by putting oil not meant for Pakistani conditions. There is lot of dust in our atmosphere. So change oil around 6000 KM.

    No need to do alignment so soon unless you live in a city where all roads are broken.

    High tire pressure will ruin your suspension.

    So my guess is what ever you save in petrol bill, you will end up spending much more in maintenance bills.

    I think you are right.
    I have contacted about this chart with SAE official. I will update you brother if they reply.
    About tyre pressure, I said that be a good careful and sensutive driver. Suspension/hissa need alignment for long life. It's not that I care about fuel but I m enjoying the drive and pick of car with 35 psi.
    I lives in rawalpindi.
    As I planned to go to my village then I put 32 psi air in my tyres.
    35 psi is only for cities and motorway.

    Brother check the owner manual of Pakistani toyota corolla 2015, it recommend 5w-30. Then why toyota pakistan recommend this oil for Pakistani weather.
    They should recommend 5w-40 for our environment.
    I m still not satisfied.

    I think when we drive then oil temperature inside engine is almost same in summer and winter both.
    It's the radiator fan that will be more operational automatically in summer than in winter to maintain the desire engine oil/coolant temperature.

    Dust can not go inside engine of a car at any cost. Engine is completely sealed. But I agree with u that it's good to change engine oil at 6k. I change it at 7k.
    It's the oil filter which is very important.
    Don't use local filters ever. Use VIC Filters or others.

    Check the chart in that pic. 0w-20 is for more than 40 degree centigrade summer temperature.
    It's from toyota passo owner manual.

    You are keeping more air pressure in your tires. Even 32 psi in the city is also high. Mostly people keep 26~30 psi depending upon vehicle and load.
    High tire pressure ruins suspension much sooner.

    My car weight 1.6 tons without passenger load.
    i keep 28 psi within the city and 26 psi for motorways or for mountain areas.

    As far as Engine oils are concern, yes 0w-30 and 5w-20 are the ideal for most of JDMs.
    Here in PK mostly we add hioctane in fuel to make the fuel quality better. Otherwise these cars runs perfect on regular.
