    Default Vitz fuel bars - Is it normal?

    Hi,

    I noticed something strange happening in my fuel level indicator on my Vitz 2007/08 model. Once I have filled 1,000 rupees of fuel there are about 4 bars displayed on the fuel level indicator. After about 45-50 kms it goes down by two bars instead of 1 bar. Then after about another 60 kms it goes down by 1 bar and the final bar starts blinking. I have noticed this ever since I got my car.

    What I want to ask is why does it go down by 2 bars instead of 1 bar after 45/50 kms as in my case?

    Any ideas?

    To replace / clean fuel filter, you will have to open the fuel pump (located under rear seat). So be sure to get it done from someone who knows Vitz well. Fuel pump costs around 40k.
    fuel pump 40k or is tht typo?
    My lugnuts require more torque than your Vtec can put out...

    Thanks. I always prefer Caltex but on this last fill since I was in a hurry, the pump I filled fuel from I feel is a shady petrol pump. So will fill next time from my normal station and compare.

    vitz fuel pump: (latest prices) Saddar Rwp

    RS 1k (china)
    RS 2-3k (Thai)
    RS 4-6k (Toyota Orignal) not 3s dealership rate

    Shops:
    Yunus Autos
    Yusuf Autos
    Mehran Autos

    all three in Saddar



    the stutter sound u mentioned chuu chuu is NORMAL .. its an indication that ur fuel pump is working FINE!! .. fuel pump will start to weary only if ur SELF takes longer than HALF SELF to start the engine .. i.e. longer self's ... and keep in mind ORIGINAL fuel pump that came with the car, is meant to last WITH THE CAR ... only fuel FILTER might need a change (that too not necessarily) ..

    just get ur Cat Converter removed / serviced from TOYOTA ... and u'll b fine.. and use Fuel INJECTOR Cleaners for bettering performance and achieving good milage...
    take tym in giving.. lyf's 2 short 2b selfish
