KB have introduce a new product Micro Compressor fitted on to the Accent which they claimed could reduce fuel consumption and more power. It's a standard equipment fitted onto the new Sonata.

Have any Accent owners fitted this product which cost RM399?

Is there any difference on your fuel consumption?

I need feedback from those who fitted this product.[/url]

Yeah, seen the brochure at the kbsc 223 last friday during my 5k service. Will check about this later. I think it's meant for both auto and manual.

It must be fitted by KB and comes with a lifetime warranty. So whenever you come to service they will dismantle and clean the air filter for you.

It looks very flimsy that was why I was sceptical about this product. KB insisted that it could burnt the unburned petrol up to 99.9% to increase the mileage.

While I was there I saw a new Accent(auto) fitted with it and I enquired with the owner because he was not sure. He did not monitor its fuel consumption yet. He already fitted it when he received his car so that he could not really compare with the MC and without MC.

If you will go for your period service, KB sales advisor will try to promote this product to you. We had been driving this car for a few months already and the average mileage is quite high if we are to compare with Jap models on the road. If fitted with the MC and if the mileage could increase then its worth fitting it. If not, its another sales gimmick to make more money whenever we come to service our car.

I went for my 1st 1000km service at Jln 222 SC last Friday. I was told that the Micro Compressor is on offer now - RM295, instead of RM399.

Hi ppl,
All this Micro PRocessor etc, I've been thinking, would it make any different and who is telling the truth. But thinking logically, our car is controlled by an injector. How can we save on FC when it (can consider) is a constant mixture of air/fuel in our combustion chamber. In order to save on FC, we can add in a turbo/super charger after the injector. This will give us optimum air/fuel mixture and a better millage. So adding all those gimmics, I might make a very frectional difference but not big enough to be noticeable.

Its just my 2 cents. Anyone to share?

Hi Marky,

Agree with you, we're not sure how effective the Power Optimizer or the Micro Compressor can save fuel or boost the car's performance, and I can't be bothered. Whatever it is, in terms of power, I think our Accent is good enough. In fact, I think it's rather powerful. My mileage is still below 2k km so I'm not speeding like crazy yet but still I think going up hill is not a problem at all. Just step on the accelerator more (and you don't need to floor it) and the car just go zoom zoom. Very Happy Going on the hway is even better, you really feel the power and since I've changed to bigger set of wheels, it's even more stable.

On FC, well mine is hovering between RM0.12 (more hway driving) to RM0.14 (more city driving / traffic jam) so I'm not too bothered about it cos my previous Iswara 1.5A used to be RM0.15-0.16 per km!!

Cheers,
TKJ

Its good that you're enjoy the ride. Well after the 2K millage, maybe you can 'push' it a little more and get the kick of it!!!

so far the last two time i got about 350km/rm45, that's mean about 0.128 sen per km, 100% city driving.


Wow...100% city driving still can get 0.128 sen, that's considered very very good. What have u done to your car??
basically i installed the micro compressor(the bigger one), so and i changed another enigine oil brand AcDelco..and i think becoz of the habit of the way you drive...i using Shell Green.


wow..100% city driving can get RM0.128/KM...compare with my FC RM0.15~0.16 100% city driving Embarassed
