    Unhappy Toyota Vitz 2008 Fuel Economy

    Few days back i bought an unregistered toyota vitz 2008 1000cc. I can swear it is not giving me more than 8.9km/l economy. Firstly i thought it was because i kept the air conditioner on all the time but then i tried without the ac and still the same result and i dont drive aggressively at all, seriously i just cruise at 40km\h max in the city with no sudden accelerations and the rpm below 2000. I had the air filter checked it was clean and did not need replacement, i changed the oil, got the car tuned up but no change. I also own a Honda City 2011 mannual i-vtec and that 1300cc car with much more power than the vitz gives me averagely 13-15km\l in city and 23km\l long. I am planning to visit toyota showroom in Islamabad tomorrow and if i get any improvement i will post but till today my vitz is giving less than 9km\l although, theoretically with only 1000cc and continuous variable transmission(CVT) this car is supposed to give more than 15km\l.
    Plus the car is in stock condition, i haven't installed bigger tyres or any other performance upgrade that might ruin fuel economy. Any one who knows a solution to this problem is very welcome to share their thoughts.

    Guys who from is using Vitz 2008 1.0 ?

    Let me know what is your fuel average ? And do tell me how do you calculate it ? What is the Hi Octane/ Supreme ratio ? Tire Size as well (What if the tire is not stock profile)

    My car is giving in my 10-11 Km/L in Islamabad city without AC. and all i drove was from Sector G6 to Airport in night after 12 am when whole Islamabad is sleeping. With very light foot. not more than 100 km/h speed. Besides my car has an extra ECO function. The car goes on battery when you stop on signal or somewhere, and starts without effecting the lights, music system

    My tire size is 185/70/14. Which is wider than the orignal size of Vitz 20 mm.

    Denso Spark Plugs. Silver tip.
    Air filter is clean.
    CAT removed.
    Checked the computer, all sensor codes are fine.
    Throttle cleaned.

    Gear Oil i did not changed, because its fine according to the mechnicmy car geniune meter was 60,000 km when it came from Japan.

    So kindly assist me. Specially if someone is from Islamabad !

    Some Vitz users are saying it should give atleast 13 km/L WITH AC in city like islamabad. While some says the new Vitz will just give 11km/L.

    I dont know what to do When everyone is giving me inaccurate readings on mileage issue.

    I own one, and there is no need to replace air filter again n again. Just do it once and install genuine air filter from Toyota motors. Another best thing that would help u achieve best economy is get the sensors cleaned. replace gear oil with original genuine toyota cvt oil. By doing do my car gives 15-16 Km/L in city and 21-23 Km/L on highways. Try it.

    Default Vitz Fuel Consumption

    Brothers, I owned a vitz 2006, Import in 2012 Start. It gives me 14 km per liter Alhamdulillah in Lahore City near Kalma Chowk Heavy traffics. In CVT Transmission, one should use soft foot on acceleration, and should maintain RPM around 1000 to 2000. Use only Total PARCO Fuels, and Use Good Engine oil thats 5w-30w. I use Mobil 1 plus from Makki Oil Store. Air filter should be changed after 3 to 5 thousand kms depends upon area of driving (in clean areas 5k kms, in dusty areas 3k kms).
    Never underEstimate anyone. Might be a charade has a v8 in his heart.

    Pl. check its OD meter, it shows the miles or Kms. Some of vehicles from Japan, OD meter shows Miles and Speedometer shows Kms/H

    i believe using appropriate viscosity synthetic engine oil also ensures better milage.

    Be careful, if you do a little research on removing catalytic converter, you will find that it can damage your car
