I'm driving a myvi SE 1.5, and the reading on the meter shows 13.2 km/l. Is this considered good fc? I usually drive in the city most of the time and only use kesas highway to get to and fro from my house in ss27 to places such as my uni in bandar sunway, taipan etc. And full tank of almost 400km or a bit after can last me exactly a week

Auto right?
I wouldn't call it good, but that kind of FC is expected so it is normal I guess.
What's bad is the one below.

I don't mean to offend you, but it is an adequately powered manual. It should consume WAY less than that.

Most common fuel guzzler other than heavy acceleration among manuals I believe is staying in gear for far too long, and downshifting too late.

That kind of FC is found in cars with engines 2.5 litres in capacity and above. Or a below average conditioned old gen Waja, which my dad is driving (government/company car, what to do). tongue.gif

MYVI 1.3 2008 auto

long time dint monitor but last week just did. (becoz installing firestorm from peter for more FC) around 450km +- for rm50. i said around becoz evytime it start to hit the last 2 bar i go find PS. and rm50 chun2 will full.

dont know thats good or not. regular OCI. so FC is ok lo. AC almost all the time On. becoz car pool to work. Sat half day Sun shopping. can say 80% high 20% city. (and the km/L help me calculate lo)

EDIT: bside OCI (im still using ori from SC @ 46k KM now) i think other factor is how clean ur engine piston. valve. injector. etc etc is. thats why people flush and carbon degrease. tyre pressure. and spark plug are common things that affect FC. mine all in tip top condition after 4 years icon_idea.gif

I have a trusted friend who really knows his car, being in the car business himself for decades. Very conscious of FC and always drive gently. He told me his Myvi 1.5 Auto can not be considered fuel economical compared to the many other cars he owned and he had owned many.

Actually Myvi isn't really that fuel efficient, my wife current Myvi 1.3 auto can only get around 10-11km/l around town driving, have been made a lot of complaint to Perodua during the first few months we got the car, but after that met a few friends also driving the same model as ours, then i realized it is just mormal FC. sad.gif

It is pretty meaningless to compare different people's Myvi unless the same driver using same driving style on the same road, same distance, same everything on different Myvi.

yep..it's true. especially for the auto one.actually not all people know who to drive auto properly. plus they have to realized that auto is not efficient as the manual. so it depend on the driver too. smile.gif

*engine condition, tyre pressure also haveto be taken into consideration. smile.gif

Yes, hypermiling is hard work and for most of the time, I wouldn't say impractical, but tedious and inconvenient. The fuel savings though, and the positive environmental impact, is frankly worth the effort. I share the Myvi with my older brother, and It's just sad to see him forking out RM30 a week while that RM30 can last me up to 3 weeks, and yet we're driving the same car.  tongue.gif

I would like to get my hands on one of them new Mirage, as a first car, but the price is actually quite scary for a car that size.
Then again, the fuel saving is quite significant. On the other hand, my "manliness" is challenged by such a vehicle. The first-gen 1.0 Myvi is already doing a fine job at that.  laugh.gif

I just had to revive this thread when seeing another kaki murah tongue.gif I'm glad to say with tofu pedals my Myvi can reach 20km/l quite easily - manual though and of course without any jams and stuff to ruin my day. Highest record ever was 23.6km/l on the highway at uncle speed.

I wished I kept my money for the Mirage instead - with my cheapfoot pedal - maybe might have crammed in even more sad.gif But higher 15k investment - So at least I fell happier now hahaha). Prius will kill me with its price cry.gif Got any mini-prius model? sweat.gif Btw, since cheapness is the topic -anybody ever had CNG on Myvi yet?

Based on my 1.5, the 1.3 optimum speed should be somewhere 70kph - anything above will begin to drain more fuel - for my 1.5 80kph netts me 22km/l steadily. my best comes at 75kph @23km/l - Going at 90kph is around 20-21km/l. Does your irridium plugs improve performance? I was informed it only netts longetivity.

Mine drive to office usually around 13 to 13.5km/l (facing Jammed bump to bump around 30mnutes). One time go Cameron got 14.1km/l.

to truly calculate FC, u should do it when refueling ur fuel..
take KM traveled, divide with Liter of fuel pump..
its more accurate that way since computer doesnt calculate the fuel used during startup.. it gets more inaccurate when u reset the FC meter while driving half way..

as mirage claimed 21km/l most owner got 14-16km/l (using refuel calculation)
if they reset halfway.. the figure can go as high as 26km/l..

so is always better to do manual calculation when pumping fuel.

My prediction is that with the Mirage you won't a significant difference in fuel savings compared to the Myvi but it would get 20+km/l much easier. Whether that is enough to justify the extra 15k, that would need a few more calculations based on your usage.

The smallest and cheapest prius I know is the Prius C. biggrin.gif

Mine does - by all means it should unless for some reason urs does'nt perhaps coz of the rigging?

Whenever I do a restart, FC drops dramatically though nothing happened or moved (unless my figures have been averaged over an extended duration). Anyway - engine starts are a constant not a variable (thus you can exclude the constant, unless you're trying to measure how much minyak is used for 1000 engine starts or someting tying directly to restarting the engine, e.g. during idle or at traffic lights), whether your foot is heavy, or not - meaning that however you try to get around it, you still have to start your engine the same way unless you are trying out a new 'supernatural instant big boom spark plug'.

Resetting in the middle of the drive is of course not accurate, cause you are getting a reading at cruise speed which is always the optimum. My Myvi gets 26.5km/l at cruise speed, but because of other causes, e.g. slowing down, traffic lights, tolls my best average on the highway comes at 23.6km/l.

However, it is accurate to say that at 80kph, my Myvi runs 26.5km/l at that constant speed at gear 5 at 2k rpm, for example.
You won't get 26km/l with 4th gear, much less 3rd, or any of the time you are accellerating - by all means accelleration digs the tank like hell. Every stop I make = loss of 1km/l to regain 80kph on a 50km journey.

If I averaged all driving, it would go closer to 17km/l cause of my short city stints (yeah they drag it down so bad).

Hmm that's my guess, cos they mentioned the Mirage comes with a compact engine, which probably translates to an average cruising speed, blowing a small dude will make matters worse I guess. It would be very suited for city drivers - I was informed from someone on a Prius that highway drives dun nett them much improvements either - I guess since theres much less braking and energy loss. But from what I read elsewhere, got ppl claim Prius gets up to 35km/l (WTFBBQ)

I wanna NGV = 50% price per liter terus hahaha...
