    Bro, 26/l is possible in foreign countries where environment is totally different from Pakistan.

    It's pretty good mileage which you are getting.

    m assuming u got new shape.. what i have heard is, u gotta buy that start stop mechanism separately that many jappy users don't opt for.
    people who use Highbeams.. once day would suffer too bigtime. People who drive slow on fast lanes, remember one day a vehicle carryin ur son, dad might get late to hospital coz people like u. underaged driving will land u in bigtime trouble one day or the other.. And the Blue indication light on ur speedometer denotes "High Beams"

    1000cc auto
    The 26 km/l figure is from Japan's 10-15 test; that test does not reflect normal driving habits and realistic conditions (for example completely flat road). For comparison, a lean burn 6th gen Civic can achieve 30 km/l on that cycle; achievable for a hardcore hypermiler, but impossible for a routine driver.

    That said, you can gain something like 20+ in local driving by hypermiling; it will be almost easy without A/C use. The greatest enemy of fuel economy in city driving is brake usage; try to minimize braking and conserve momentum. I will give you a few pointers. For more details, check the link in my signature.

    __You will need to time your trips; start your commute early in the morning, and delay your return home a little bit to avoid the worst of the rush hour traffic.

    __Anticipate traffic and road obstacles, so that you can minimize brake use. If you know that there is a u-turn or similar ahead in your lane, find the earliest opportunity to change your lane. If you see an intersection/roundabout/red light ahead, use engine braking instead of your brakes (more on this later).

    __If you have to stop for more than ~10 seconds, shut the engine off.

    __If you have to use A/C, use it when the car is in a steady cruise/engine braking state. Turn it off during acceleration. I usually don't turn the A/C on in my Civic below 32 km/h (minimum speed for 3rd gear).

    __Use a slow acceleration rate, just barely keeping up with traffic in the slow or middle lane. After you have some practice, there are some advanced acceleration techniques used by hypermilers that you can use.

    __When you get the opportunity to coast, such as a gentle down slope, put your car in neutral, and let it coast as far as road and traffic conditions allow. This will give you a significant boost on fuel economy.

    __During engine braking, the engine is in fuel cut mode under some parameters. The car should be above a certain speed and RPM. I will give you an example; my Civic needs to be above ~1200 RPM and ~35 km/h to be in fuel cut, IIRC. During an engine braking maneuver, I downshift to D3 at ~50 km/h, and to 2 at 40 km/h. I usually just shift to neutral and shut the engine instead of shifting to 2, but that is another story. Don't shut it off in your Vitz, because it can cause serious transmission damage.

    Start of with these tips, and see what you get.

    Yes there is a difference of 20% fuel economy from 80-120

    what a waste using hi-octane!waste of money!your car does not require hi-octane and hi-octane does not add power to the car its all in logoon ka head that yar mein ne gadi mein hi-octane dali meri gadi tayz ho gaai! hi-octane RON no is only its resistance to volatility to combust under extreme heat hence thats why hi-octane burns very slowly thts why h-octane is usually used in hi compression engines!

    u need to check alot of other things that determine mileage such as
    fuel filter
    auto tranny oil
    throttle body condition if its choked with carbon or not
    pressure of fuel pump if the pump is weak or not
    cars suspension if suspension requires work and if car alignment is out
    quality of fuel as from where u fill petrol! some petrol pumps do not have their fuel tanks cleaned hence it mixes with the petrol!
    if the cars injectors are clogged or not
    quality of spark plugs if they are worn out or not
    condition of ignition coils if they are weak or not
    condition of the cars tires if they are worn out or not

    these are some initial things to check which determine a cars fuel mileage

    other things to check are if the tires are properly inflated at all times and there is no air pressure loss causing rolling resistance

    Try 30+ % from 80-110. Steady State Speed Vs Fuel Economy Results. Increasing speed to 120 will bring that closer to 40% than 30%
