Sir g i cant say anything apart from Alhamdulillah and I am blessed with a nice ride
History being I bought this ride in Nov '12 and took it straight to toyota GT motors and asked them to do whatever maintenance is due. They services throttle body, brakes, changed tranny oil, engine oil, air filter, oil filter and checked all bits and bobs under the car.
Next day took it to Pindi gheb from Fateh Jang with no AC and full tank. Hardly touching 105km/h. Cane back and topped up the tank and calculated average which was 19.6km/l. I was like WOW but then read on these forums that true average is when u consume two or three tanks.
Next month got a chance to travel Lahore, faisalabad, sargodha, talagang and back to fateh jang. That included roaming around in city and highways.
That whole trip gave me around 16.2km/l.
Few months later I went to lahore and that time the beast inside me was awake and wanted to check the max speed. Luckily I got accompanied by a black 2D saloon corolla who was a maniac just like myself and overtook me at 160km/h. Then from kallar kahar till shekhupura we went retards and doing close to 165km/h all the way.
At next fillup I calculated and 9.8km/l average changed my face expressions but I was expecting such poor consumption the way I drove.
So guys thats my story and honestly i havent done anything besides regular toyota maintenance.
Got new tyres almost two months back and thought for a second about getting alloys but then rejected the idea fearing it will effect my fuel average. Did almost two tanks after tyre change and getting close to 17km/l.
