FD2 - 2L
FD1 - 1.8L
FD4 - 1.6L

To get a accurate fuel consumption estimate, do the following.

Fill up tank. Stop pumping once the nozzle auto stops.
Reset Trip A.
Drive till next top up.
Fill up tank. Stop pumping once nozzle auto stops.
Take the distance travelled from the last pump and divide by the amount pumped. This method is fairly accurate.

Driving in sports mode increases the fuel comsumption. You might however want to use the paddle shifts in Drive mode to shift quickly to gear 5, depending on road conditions.

You might want to check your tyres and alignment as well. What size, brand and age?

I think you are probably doing 10 to 11km/l.

Hi , thanks... so mine is FD1A le...

I only tried once driving in sport mode on e expressway. But i thought the paddle shift can only be used when u switch to S mode? Can use paddle shift when in Drive mode? What u mean by shift quickly to gear 5 in drive mode depending on road condition? You mean when i want to overtake people car? I not quite sure using D or S mode is best when trying to overtake ppl car... please advice.. thanks

heard other say drink more fuel when use paddleshift..

my fd2a full tank light up @ 360-380, but when i went to pump @ light up, can only pump in 40liter only.. don't trust your fuel gauge not accurate..
When you use paddleshift, the purpose is to over-write the auto gear, to allow you to drag certain gears longer.

Normally, in auto mode, the gears shift up at the optimal level which is programmed in the ECU. Maybe at every 2k rpm the gears will shift up. So when you use paddleshifters, unless you replicate what the computer is doing, or then fuel consumption would vary. Tendancy to rev higher using paddle shifters is also there.

Hope this 2 cent helps.

Ok, thankfully.

Because the difference of your mileage is too high. Based on what is mentioned here. It's like approximately 100km and if 1 litre can travel 10 km, that is like 10 litres of petrol....which is quite a lot of volume disappearing into nowhere

his leak was not at the bottom i tink so it did not drip onto the ground. Also the crack wasn't really deep so fuel kind of seeped through bit by bit......

But yours not really an old car so shouldn't have that leak problem

I would change the engine oil and ATF first... the rest would wait till i hit 50k mileage.

My workshop say change the engine oil to Idemitsu 5w30 which is to save FC... what is ur comment? thanks
