    1) Use low viscosity engine oil (recommended one), 5W30 API SN, or ILSAC GF-5 full synthetic for better fuel consumption.
    2) Replace old air filter with Toyoya genuine air filter.
    3) Use stock wheels size 165/70 r14 ( I assume it is Vitz 1.0 L)
    4) Get rid of extra stuff from the trunk.
    5) Get the throttle body serviced (if required).
    6) Replace spark plugs ( if required).
    7) check O2 sensor for proper functioning.
    8) Maintain proper air pressure in the tyres. (34 psi for 165/70 r14)
    9) carry out wheel alignment and balancing (if required).
    10) Replace tyres if worn out. ( measure tyre tread).

    You should get around 14KM/L fuel average in city and minimum of 18 to 19KM/L on highways. Use HOBC petrol.
    Don't leave a highway for a byway....

    Thanks for your opinion... probably low mileage due to replaced the tyres on 185/70 size. otherwise everything have been checked by Toyota Ravi.

    You are using non-recommended oil for Vitz. Assuming your car has a 1000 CC Engine (1KR-FE), 0W-20 is the recommended oil while 5W-30 can also be used as an alternate. You are using 20W-50 which is way thicker/heavier and it is one of the reason of low mileage. Do not expect miracles after changing oil to proper grade but it will most certainly improve mileage.

    5W30 is the recommended oil according to the 1KR-FE Service Manual

    Very sad to see all this. I my previous Mail on this page I clearly mentioned 5W30 engine oil should be used. You never bothered and you are using this piece of **** oil brand in a JDM. The main reason for high fuel consumption. Brother, you will ruin your engine with this thick oil. Use 5W30 full synthetic API SN or ILSAC GF-5 certified oil. Liqimoly, Shell, Mobil 1, Total are good brands.

    80% of engine wear and tear occurs during cold startups, with that oil (guard 20w50) your are increasing the 80% to more then 150% (with 20W)
