    Default Toyota Vitz Owners/Fan Club

    The purpose of this post is to gauge the interest in forming a Toyota Vitz Owners Club in different cities of Pakistan. As we all know that Vitz has become quite popular in the last year or so. More and more people are buying it or are interested to know more about it. The purpose of the club would be to share technical / operational information regarding the car. As well as help fellow members with different issues regarding the everyday running of the car. There would be regular meets and get together as well as cruises. The criteria to join the club would be to own a Vitz and a desire to help and share information with fellow members. I myself am based in Karachi, so I can take the lead in taking off this project here. Other can do the similar thing in their respective cities. If there is enough interest, a formal charter / by-laws would be issued with club rules and regulation as well as its mission statement. The club would operate under the same rules & conditions as other international car clubs. To take this project off the ground, I believe 10 people in each city would be the minimum requirement. If anyone from Karachi is interested in being a part of this club, please email me at danyal1@hotmail.com. Pakwheelers from other cities can share their email addresses under this post if they are willing to take the lead for their respective cities. I hope to this see become a success someday and a model for other to follow. LETS MAKE IT HAPPEN GUYS!!!

    Well, for one, your tyre size its too big and will always cause some mileage problems.

    You can try cleaning your air filter, maintain recommended tyre pressure (the more the air pressure, the better the mileage, but less grip.. an vice versa)

    Cleaning (or taking) out catalytic converter may also help.

    do NOT ever remove ur catalytic converter. it will eventually make ur car's performance worse than it is currently at. i followed the same stupid advice of such a removal from some experts @ pakwheels and ended up in ruining my car. ur car wont even run smooth anymore. and after a while the sound of the cylincer will seem too loud to u. i suggest u better unbolt the manifold, get the catalytic converter cleaned, and rebolt it again. do not remove it. also check the exhaust sensor located over the manifold. Clean the sensors. keep a good clean airfilter and u r good to go. tire size is a bit over also.

    ^ More details required,

    First of all get the oil/oil fiter, airfilter, spark plugs, CVT oil changed to be at the safe side, Get rs.1500 worth hi-octane petrol for atleast 2-3 refills then you get hi-octane ocasionaly or not but atleast let it cleaned up, Use a Petrol treatment or injector cleaner aswell. Should cost more then rs.500

    Finaly also get the throttle body cleaned, and make sure that CNG was never installed in this car.
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    Please elaborate, Do you mean to open up cylincer and clean it, like we use drain openers to open the drains? (because this is possible either you have to replace it or break the jali like thing inside)

    Or do u mean not to remove the dholki, and break the catalytic convertor?

    ^ But how to clean it then? its replaced worldwide once its completed its life, Im not sure if replacements (brand new) are avalible locally, And theirs defenitly nothing that works like a drain opener or injector cleaner to clean the clogged catalyst,

    Runing your car with a choked catalyst is not logical at all. Im trying to find complete free flow down pipping (cat back) but im afraid of the loud muffler sound, that costs around $150 on ebay. Lets see if some dealer is able to help me import it

    All i know is that the sound is horrible after removing it. I dont know if its because both the "dholkis" are removed or what....so no idea. In fact I had my vitz for 4+ years and the CAT never choked. I used to always fuel up with Caltex though and very rarely with other fuels, even now with my Belta.

    The thing is that, When you remove the dholki and fit a pipe it increases sound,
    You remove the dholki, break the catalyst, weld it back, (leaved hollow space in side) creates sound and a shrill sound

    Best way it to find a replacment (jalli wali) that keep the sound orignal, But for that cut and weld is required which atleast i hate, rewelding always leaks. and makes problems very often.

    Im happy with my car doing 12km/L now, if it goes below 11 or 10, then i might consider removing the cat for now im happy.

    @tyrone, Drove about 475 kilometers till the second last side stoped and the last light started blinking, got her refiiled at 489.9 (lets count it 490) and 35.85 liters came in, lets say 36 liters,

    that means 490 kms on 36 liters, 13.61km/L This is good mashaAllah.

    That's cool I would also like to try to get an exact estimate of my mileage but don't want to wait till the last light is blinking seeing the situation in karachi and the fact that I was stuck for 2+ hours on sharea faisal in karachi last night

    I had two bars left and was thinking of letting it go till it started blinking but common sense prevailed and thank goodness I filled up that morning before the trouble started or else I would have been stranded :-/

    Oh thats bad, thankfully i left office on time, YOu dont have to wait till the last bar, just divide driven kms by fuel refilled, you can do that with 100km of driving and refilling aswell.

    That's what I do to get a rough estimate. But mine is so far only about 9.50/10 l/km It's a Belta but a lot of short starts and AC too
