The latest average of my 1300cc Corolla XLi is 8kms/litre, city driving without A/c. Model 2005, Mileage 10,000 kms.
Background: Last month had refueled it from Shell pump, F-6 Super Market, Islamabad. The car's idle speed went erratic and used to shut down on normal idle, irrespective of temeperature. Pumping accelator gave diesel like black smoke from the exhaust.
Went to Toyota Islamababad Motors. The chota checked the air filter and a small element attached to the snorkel. Cleaned both. Said never go the F-6 Shell again. They mix kerosin oil.
I went to ENERCON PSO Melody for a checkup. He hooked up the engine with his system and said everything is normal. He said never go to Shell F-6. They have tampered with the meters.
Now the big question is, if everything is normal, why am i getting an average of 8 whereas I used to get 12.75 kms/liter. Can anyone suggest a remedy, apart from changing the fuel station which I have but the results are the same.
