Smile N16-Fuel consumption is very low

Hello..
My car is NissanSunny-N16-GQ16.(2001),M/T.

But fuel consumption is very low.
At city traffic-8-9 per/letter
At long run-10-11 per/letter
Any suggestions to improve the efficiency Please?

Thumbs up

It does seem to be using a bit more fuel than you would normally expect. Have you got a clean airfilter in? A clogged airfilter will hurt milage. Does the engine sound as if it is working hard to maintain highway speeds or does your top speed seem hard to hold? Maybe a collapsing catalytic convertor or muffler is restricting your exhaust, which will also effect milage. What are your milage figures in miles or km per litre?

I meant to ask how many Km's has the car done ie 60,000 100,000 etc

only 75 - 85 kph ? Highway speed ?

Freeway or motorway speed often 60 70 80 mph or 100 -120- 140 kph

I had an N16 with 1.6, this is a heavy car for a 1.6
rented a N15 while mine was in the shop and much faster, as lighter car.

where are you located ?

yes do regular maintainance first, NGK plugs are fine, new Air filter.

After that it depends on other symptoms and Km's on the Car

11 kilometres to each litre works out at about 31-32 miles per imperial gallon. I don't know if I understand correctly but do you mean speed in miles per hour on the highway? if in miles the highway figure might not be too bad , if in km not so good. The town figure doesn't look too good either way but it depends on how much stop start driving you are doing. Highway figures at around a speed of 100kmph are usually a lot better than stop start driving in traffic. However fuel use usually increases fairly sharply over about 130kmph or so.
