D-segment sedan usually 60L tank, B segment usually only 40L fuel tank. 60L divide 600km is about 10km per liter, 10km per liter is pretty bad if just highway drive I think  sweat.gif

I fully realize the tank capacity is bigger, bro. But that is exactly my point. It is bigger because they wanted to hit that sweet spot of 600km per full tank. Had it been the same capacity as honda city, the range would be around 400 km only.

I had an even bigger car before, a 4x4 with 3.8L V6... Also roughly 550 - 600 km per full tank. This car had about 7 km/l (combo) and up to 9 km/l (highway only).

So I am talking purely out of my own experience.

Besides, did I not say the Avanza 1.3 managed to hit 600 km on a full tank, with some balance to go? Avanza is definitely a different segment to my Accord.

Btw, I think 10 km/l is very good if you're driving a 5.7L V8 car like the landcruiser. They normally drink a liter every 5, 6 km or three about. So it's relative.

Edit
Added from my own records:
Rented Tiida 1.8L - around 550 - 600 km per full tank (avg consumption: 13.057 km/l)
Owned 1996 Corona 1.6L - 550 to 700 km per full tank (avg consumption: 13.993 km/l)
Owned 2002 Sonata 2.4L - 400 to 600 km per full tank (worse car owned for city driving, mileage from absolute worse to best: 5.997 km/l to 12.565 km/l)

Second time edit
found 2 records for rented Alza: 12.865 - 15.584 km/l
condition: fully loaded with family and luggage, travel KL-JB and back, also some driving in town of KL & JB.
Don't really know the full tank mileage though, since the two samples would not represent real life scenario/condition.

Will it be different when the car is new or second hand, i thought i just based on the car model, some designed can save the oil consumption... Some really make the oil drain so fast in the tank...

fuel consumption is based on how much weight u carry and when u so often to press the break also will use high consumption of fuel

600km must be fully highway drive, with aircond off.
speed 70km/h.

B4 swapping parts like o2 sensor, map/maf sensor and fuel filter etc.... IF OBD says nothing is wrong with these...

Seafoam engine crankcase and fuel tank

Amsoil powerfoam ur intake....

One reach 600 - 800km then change engine oil and ur spark plugs...

Oh yeah... you will need to use contact cleaner spray on your Map or MAF sensor and allow it too dry.... give it and hour or two....

And change ur gbox fluids and other fluids too...

better not use contact cleaner,might damage the sensor,there's special MAF cleaner spray for that purpose
if ts had access to obd2 and ecu didn't throw a lean code,the sensor probably fine though

Yep contact cleaner spray type = same thing as crc maf cleaner... anyway better buy maf spray... as it’s marketed and probably formulated the same. 😂

Obd2 scanner these days cheap for the hobbyist user version lah... workshop one expensive 😅 or ask workshop scan first la TS ...
