View Full Version : High Fuel Consumption

20-Jul-2011, 11:21 AM
Dear All,

Recently, the past 3-4 tanks of petrol only last me like 9~10km/L. Usually i get 11++km/L normal driving habit.

I am using Esso Synergy 8000 and engine and exhaust and turbo are in stock condition.

Recently i got my throttle body clean-up due to frequent stalling and also my timing belt was replaced.

Anyone has any ideas what probably be the cause:

1) Blackened Engine Oil due for Change ?
2) Air filter cloaked ?
3) Over rich fuel mixture ?
4) Spark plug burn out ?
5) Mismatch Air/fuel ratio ? requires tuning ?

Please advise dear bros ?

Hi Huat,

Have you change the fuel filter before ?

I bought it but yet to change!

Btw, just found out from mechanic, after servicing throttle body the FC will go up as ECU relearn on the new airflow difference... not sure how true

then its not the throttle body but its the ECU relearning that caused the high FC?

I heard have to tune the ECU as the setting is too rich.
