what causes high full consuption and what can be done to reduce fuel consuption in a isuzu KB 220 car


You can overinflate your tires by a few psi over standard, not use AC, avoid stop and go driving and jack rabbit starts, remove unnecessary heavy objects from car, keep max speed around 55, proper oil level, no brakes dragging, anticipate stops and let off gas, etc.

How can we achieve fuel efficiency while driving my car?


Do these these things
-Inflate your tyres to correct pressure or a little over, when cold
-Don't accelerate quickly or rev the engine up , most especially when cold
-Try to drive smoothly in traffic with a light foot, not jerkily
-In cars with small engines A/C will consume more fuel
-Fill up with the least ethanol that is legal, and that your car will tolerate. Consult your driver handbook. Efuel gives less economy
-Don't cart heavy loads around in the car for convenience' sake. Take them out till you need them.
-Don't put roof racks and travel pods on when not needed. These create drag
-On the highway travel at 10% under the limit. Less and you will irritate others, but high speeds increase fuel consumption greatly

excessive fuel consumption,no power on incline,


this could be an air intake problem, check the air filter but what ive seen before is the flexible intake pipe collopse only when the engine was under pressure as you describe.Try removing this pipe & driving again but not for long as dust would enter the engine .it might confirm or elimiate this.
