# Thread: Toyota Vitz 2008 1.3L 4WD...Fuel Consumption

1. ## Toyota Vitz 2008 1.3L 4WD...Fuel Consumption

Hi there,

I recently bought a Toyota Vitz 2008 which 1.3L and 4WD (2SZ-FE) but the shaft was removed, so it is 2WD now. It is driven 68000 km original in Japan, but i dont think till now air filter or fuel filter have been changed. It do not have the CVT transmission it has the other one with D, 3, 2 and L options. I changed all the oils (not any filters) and got brand new 14 inch dunlop soft road silent Tyres with alloy rims. After all the things done I managed to get 10 km/L at max with 10 liter high octane in the tank too. I calculated as follow: (kindly correct me if i did it wrong):-

Total Tank: 42 Liters

Car speedometer shows 8 bars, so: 42/8 = 5.25 liters/bar

In one bar it went 50 KM exact. So 50/5.25 = 9.5-10 Km/L.

Kindly help and tell me how to improve fuel economy as official readings are 14-15 km/L. This is the maximum which i managed to get in City along with A/C all the time. Please HELP!!!

2. it looks like 2NZ-FE, by removing the rear drive shaft u gonna overload the front differential + axles, as its a 4WD design, I hav 1.3L 2SZ-FE 2WD it gives around 15 - 16km/L in city

3. Opps i am soory. i miss typed it. yeah u r right it is 2NZ-FE. But can u tell me that whether I calculated my consumption in a right manner?

4. @poster.
No you have calculated it in a wrong way. Proper procedure is.
Get it's fuel tank full. Drive around for some 150-200 km's and then fill again. Now see how many liters are refueled again. Suppose it's 12 liters and your car is driven around 140km.
140/12 = 11.66. This reading tells you the car's mileage per kilometers.
and don't disturb the car by removing it's drive shaft. Let it be on it's factory specs and always use genuine products for better mileage and pick. Keep air filter clean.
P.S : Nice looking car.

5. How could you put IDO series for a personal car?

Dude its a full time 4WD version, company has designed it in such a way that the drive force distributes equally in all the wheels, as u hav removed the rear drive shaft now front differential + axles has to put extra effort in order to drag the car.

u r calculating it in a wrong way, just go to Petrol Pump & ask the guy to fill the tank (full) then reset ur ODO meter Trip A/B, drive the car for a week, then again refill the tank (full), this time note the Liters (Dispenser)

For eg
Petrol: 28.5 Liters
Trip A/B : 444.6km

Mileage : 444.6 / 28.5 = 15.6 km / L

8. Thanks for the reply bro. So it means I should get the shaft back. And yeah I will calculate the milage in the right way IA. Thanks again. P.S Thanks for the compliment. These r the first day pictures, I will soon upload the latest pics in which I have installed 14 inch Dunlop tyres with Alloys.

9. bro thanks for letting me know this useful info. So it means I should put back the shaft to improve mileage? right? And thanks for telling the correct way of calculating the Fuel Consumption

Bro can u tell me that does 2WD and 4Wd have alot different fuel consumption? As one is CVT (2wd) and the other is ECT, i guess (4wd)

15. You know what you posted in the last 7 posts could have been posted in one single post/reply... -___-

Yup 4WD is not CVT, its designed for performance not an economical Car.

putting the shaft back will not increase the mileage as far as i know, dude as an experiment u can calculate the fuel average with & without the rear wheels drive shaft. u know what 2NZ-FE comes in XLI Corolla so Engine parts would be no issue

18. Brother it is a high compression engine.

Try to fill 5-10 litre HOBC and then try to calculate the mileage.

Yeah I know but I am new here :p

Bro I already had 10 liters of High Octane from Caltex along with the normal petrol when I calculated my mileage. But yet I have to calculate in the right way stated above :p
