Can you please explain why you would prefer semi-synthetic/synthetic oil over mineral oil? How is price a concern when a non-mineral oil has a drain interval of at least twice the drain interval of a mineral oil? In that sense, it actually costs cheaper to use non-mineral oil. For example, 1L of Liqui Moly 20W-50 costs somewhere around PKR 700. 1L of Havoline 20W-50 costs around PKR 400. Liqui Moly is good to go for 2,000 - 3,000 km, while Havoline is hardly good for 1,000 km. It means Liqui Moly costs you PKR 350/1,000 km whereas Havoline PKR 400+/1,000 km. So, isn't it wise to use an expensive oil with a longer drain interval?
Furthermore, you can also topup a good quality oil (Liqui Moly, KIXX, for instance) every 1,000 km, whereas you cannot do it with a mineral oil. Can you please educate me on this?
Thank you for your suggestion, bro. However, it is one and the same thing either to do mathemtics after driving a bike with a measured quantity of fuel or drive it with 1L of fuel.
You are right about your concern, but the Suzuki mechanic burned all the fuel in carburettor by starting the bike after disconnecting fuel supply from fuel tank. So, no, there was no fuel in carburettor before the test :). And you know what, the head-mechanic guaranteed to get an average of 50 km/h before we even went out on road for test! :o
I think having a carburettor opened is equivalent to having an open-heart surgery which is done only when everything else has failed and it becomes totally, utterly, and absolutely necessary to perform this procedure.
Lolz, yeah. There is no "jinn" in bike, it's just that I am clueless yet about the issue My GD has passed mechanical fitness test after giving an impressive fuel average of 52 km/h at an alomost-consistent speed of 60 km/h. Now I need to focus on external factors such as fuel quality and qunatity.
Yes, bro. I agree now. I guess I need to check on fuel.
You are right about your concern. But I think I should wait for doing anything else till changing my fuel vendor and see if I get a better outcome. If it stays the same then, yes, it requires more "mahgaz khapaai". One thing is certain, however, Suzuki guys were so proud and felt victorious after the test that now they won't hear any complaints from me regarding fuel-average I'll have to do something on my own. Challenge accepted! (H)
Haan yaar, ab yehi karna reh gaya hay bas. Mere Abbu ne mujhe ek fuel station ka bataya hay. Woh bata rahay thay k ek dafa kaheen se car ka fuel tank full karwaya to car ne kam mileage di, phir ek or jagah se full karwaya tank to bohat he acchi mileage mili. Ab usi fuel station se fuel loon ga or check karoon ga nateeja. For Lahore members, I am talking about Shell Petrol Pump on Dharampura Road (in front of Caltex).
