FC 10-12 is normal is already in optimal. If everyday like me jammed traffic, will hit 9-10km/l, a lot of stops and idling. I pump 92 and control my right feet. nothing else.

Change car to either CVT or hybrid will get you better FC.

Mine I is a 11yrs old car. So when I first pump Vpower last year, very sluggish and no power. Until the full tank of Vpower is gone and I pump 92, the engine back to its full power and proper FC.

10-11km/l... depends on your right foot, route and traffic conditions. Mine had been getting 10 to 10.5 since I got it at 4yo (@100kkm) till sold it at 9.5yo (@250kkm). Daily Sengkang-Changi TPE traffic, plus non-highway drives for lunches, some dinners, ferry kids here and there. Fairly light/moderate foot. Mainly pump Esso 95. Was pumping Shell 95 for awhile and no diff in FC. Pumped Shell VPower Racing in MY few times and the car really on steroids

Tyre wise, was on 2 rounds of Michelin XM2 and 1 round of Bridgestone EP200, all stock rims 205/65/r15. Can't feel any diff in FC. But drive wise, imo XM2 still better.

Check your tyre pressure regularly (eg once a month or so) and keep them adequately pumped up. I pump 230kpa all-round. Do compensate for hot-state if you have to travel duno >1km or 1.5km before pumping, which means at the station, you should be setting the pressure @255 or 260kpa.

Had been using Mobil 1EP 5w20 for first half and 5w30 for second half of its lifespan. Whatever you do, just don't use w40 oils

Clear out unnecessary load. I only have umbrellas in the boot.

Other than that... can't do much liao...

I have a friend with Stream also... and I swear his is a special prototype accidentally sold to him. From what he described, his highway is probably more but the difference in FC is simply unbelievable for a 1.8L MPV. He is consistently getting above 13km/l, means consistently hitting mid-high 600km per tank, sometimes even hitting 700 if driven by his wife. Impossible but it happens. Somemore he is on KM's Shell w40. Or maybe because he's on w40

And now both of us driving Ody. He's getting 8.5 to 9, I'm getting 8 to 8.5. Much closer
