Hi i need ur kind advice on this matter. I recently purchase my hyndai accent and was shoch to note that my car is drinking petrol just like water. i tested by purchasing Rm 50 worth of petrol and driving in mixed mode around town and highway and could only last me 283 km. i tried using this method of calculation below

By mileage:
i got my tank pump worth rm 50 and total mileage travelled of that pump is 283 kms which means 26.05 litre divide by 283 km = 0.092 litre per kilometer which i consider too high if compared to my old iswara 1.3 year 2006 model. i can get additional 57 km more if i used that car compared

my auto gear accent FC also more or less like that...
but manual and auto gear and the weight of the car also will affect FC lo.
If compare to toyota vios... I think accent FC only higher by RM0.05/KM.

Korean cars is indeed heavier. Its just theoretical that heavier cars have better safety rating

There is a lot of thing you can upgrade to improve your FC
1) Change to Fully Syn Engine oil
2) Maintain your car
3) Maintain your tire pressure
4) Lighten your car with not necessary things
5) etc.etc

hi all...
i own accent (AT) just 3 month ago...
the first month my odometer showed 10 to 11L per 100 km
but right now it become 9.7/9.8L per 100 km.
I travel 70 km per day...mix road( town & highway),,,
I live in batu feringgi and works in bayan lepas...

Any comment guys....??
But on top of that....I think accent consumed more fuel...frankly speaking..

If mostly highway, then FC would be around 6.x-7.xL/100km. City drive varies with traffic.

long time not log in... Razz Razz Razz


for Accent FC... I feel it's normal as the FC is basicly depand on the car weight and the engine power...

for a car, which is 1000+KG compare to most of the car which are less than 1000KG. it's normal to drinks more fuel.
(or maybe you want a not so solid car... lesser metal to produce a car Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Twisted Evil )

as for the engine...
without vvt and SOHC... it's not fair to compare to vios, or city, or viva...
or maybe you want to compare to Aveo... an 1.5L SOHC with 8 valve...
you will find that your car are better in term of FC Wink Wink Wink

your car is about 2 years already, have you try cleaning the throttle body. I heard it's around RM180 for cleaning up the throttle body. it may gives back your car mixtures back to normal.
