    Default Vitz giving 10 Km/Litre

    Aoa,

    I know this has been discussed numerous times, but I have not seen any forum that gives a final solution for the problem, if it is being faced. The Vitz Owners Club thread may have the info, but it is such a long thread, that its nearly impossible to find what I am looking for.

    I have a 1000 cc Vitz, 2006 model, freshly imported, done 36,000 km.

    I am getting a fuel average that is even lower than 10 km/l in the city with A/C, whereas, after reading comments from other members the average should be around 14 km/l.

    I recently got the engine tuned from Toyota motors, got Iridium plugs installed, cleaned air filer. Now, as I hear, I need to clean or remove the catalytic converter.

    Any suggestions would be welcome.

    I have changed the transmission fluid, cleaned the throttle body, and drive normally.

    Who will guard the guards ... ?

    that is a very good fuel average ... i have done all that you have suggested but still not getting a good fuel average ... can you provide more guidance ?

    I'm presently getting 14.5 to 15kmpl locally without ac and i think it is not possible to go any higher, if i use ac the average may reduce to 12 (just an estimate) but i travel in areas with very less traffic no red lights or jams.

    Lastly before using any chemical for injector cleaning, etc do serach net for its negative effects
    Your forums are very useful ... i will try all of the suggestions as i find time ...

    I want to finish what I started in this thread ...

    The discussion is about my Vitz 2006 that is giving me 10 km/L within city with AC. A number of useful suggestions were given by members, but I did not have time to try them out except air filter change, engine tuning (from Toyota), gear oil change.

    My concepts changed when I took the Vitz on the Motorway (Isb - Pesh) last weekend. I maintained a speed of 100 kph, and got a fabulous fuel average of 22 km/L, which is very satisfactory.

    So, I guess the reason why I get 10 km/L in city is due to the fact that my regular use of the car is from my home to office, which are pretty close to each other. So, the car remains in low gear ratios, and gives a low fuel average. The car is perfect (al hamdolillah) and does not need any adjustments.

    I guess its good news for Vitz owners !

    Recently I have an experience of Vitz 2008

    Vitz speedometer is mentioned KM/h where as actually running at Miles/h

    I started my journey from Lahore to Multan and speedometer was reset to Zero, upon arrival at Multan it was 200.

    Where as it is actually 320 or 330 KMs with my Honda City

    200 consumed 20 Liters of Petrol. 200/20 = 10 miles per liter (16 KMs. per liter)

    Please have your vitz 2008 checked like this.
