    We bought it on 53000 km in august 2013 and now it is 70000 km. The car in start was giving 23-24 KMPL while we were in Islamabad and now as we moved to DHA since November the car was giving 22-23 KMPL. But now the average has dropped to 18-19 KMPL on Normal Petrol and 21-22 KMPL on High Octane. The tyres which we installed are Dunlop SP Sport LM702 ( a very hard and bad tyre, i must say). Kindly let me know that does Prius requires any kind of tuning to increase the fuel average or it is a tyre issue, because we drive it with a light foot.

    Till now We only did regular Oil Change from Toyota (20W-50) and got the CVT oil change from Toyota. Kindly recommend any other engine oil, if this inst the right one.

    Looking forward for your replies

    Itna zulm kyoon apni Prius kay saath. Prius requires oil which is very very thin.

    Go for 0w-20 available from kixx oil. That is recommended for prius 3rd gen.

    For prius 2nd gen, recommended is 5w-30. you can get that easily from shell or any other company.

    If you are in Karachi, you can get Kixx oil. This brand of oil is being used in Range Rovers also.
    Contact Mehmood Autos in Karachi - 0300-9204376. They have it in stocks.

    It took me lot of time and research to find all this so I am posting for benefit of all members.
    0w-20 is suitable for Japan weather not Pakistan

    Ow-20 recommended for all prius 1.8. This I verified from priuschat.com where users from Australia, USA, Europe all say they are using 0w-20 for 1.8 prius.

    Users from Hot climate areas of USA, Las Vegas (Nevada, mostly desert), Florida, etc which has hot climates similar to Pakistan also say they are using 0w-20.

    hmm - in Texas I see 40C in summer and regularly see cars running 0w20 etc oils in their engines with no problems at all. The engines are designed to run on this low viscosity oil.

    Cant say anything , if 0w-20 is prescribed by the Manufacturer there , then it Ok.
    But im happy using ZIC A+(5w-20) in all my cars.

    not much difference in both, the 0W cold viscosity helps for a faster startup as the MG starts the engine in this car.

    Salaam everyone... does anyone facing knocking issues?... My father got the car filled, don't know from which pump but it was knocking badly when the car was running on the engine at snail speeds...

    What ratio of high octane and supreme should one use for this car?...

    i use 30:70 in my other car... Was planning to go 40:60 for the Prius... Recommendations will be much appreciated..

    Cheers...
    Driving is not about going from point A to point B, it is the point...
