4G18 is just the engine code.It does not denote the engine capacity.Its a 1.6 litre.

Waja owner here but manual version.For FC,my manual can get bout 190km max on RM30 of fuel(16.67 litre).Performance wise,I wont bet so much on it since even small kancil can tiong my car on straight road.Other than the occasional squeaky sound and some vibration here and there,its fine for town driving.

Most famous is power window failure,fuel pump premature failure,squeaky noise at the back due to loose petrol tank mounting,faulty fuel gauge reading.I also had to change my engine mounting after driving the car for 5 years.

Some practical mode I can think of for your car include fixing a drop in performance air filter for ur car since the stock air filter are quite restrictive and useless.Also remember to change and flush all the old oil and clean the TB.That should improve things abit.

50 liter of esso regular=600km, 60%hiway(spirited driving)-40%city.

my major problem= fuel indicator driving me crazy, indicate 1/2 tank but actually already using reserve fuel!! so i just use the trip meter and filling full the tank once reach 500km will refuel.

I just brought a 2nd hand 4g18 2005 premium.
Full Tank = i pump RM100 RON95 BHP i manage to run 555KM
until Fuel lights giving warning. 570KM still manage to go.

I heard some other ppl said highway can go 700KM.
But i only used for city drive. Seldom high rev at all.
RPM most of the time at "2.1" 80/90 like that.

Yes, if town use can get 500+ km, highway use at constant 90kmh, should get you around 700km
