Something must be wrong to use a lot of fuel even if it seems to run smooth,have you had it plugged into a computer to see if there are any codes ? or even an emission test will give a basic idea of whats happening in the engine?

Nissan 1400 consuming too much petrol. How do you adjust air ratio in the carburator

No reference to your model 1400...but if it has a carburetor the air/fuel mixture is set with 2 screws on the front adjust each must be running, turn each screw clockwise until your motor starts to stall...then back out (counter-clockwise 1 1/2 turns from stall...should smooth out as fine tune adjusting...each screw must be re-set this way...could also be dirty or clogged air filter, dirty carb throttle body...and need new spark plugs...probably needs the standard parts tune-up...Hope this helps.

I have a BMW 316 (with engine of 318i), it is consuming lot of petrol, the mechanic advised to change the flow meter, is it right?


The job of a flow meter is to read the rate of flow of liquid in the car, so it will only show you the rate of flow not reducing the rate at which the car consumes petrol.

Also take note that there are some things that could be on in the car that consumes petrol for instance the air conditioner of your car. Know also that the rate at which a car consumes fuel is high when the atmosphere is cold, because it requires a level of revving to heat up the engine and that consumes petrol.

Run a general servicing of your engine, that should help you detect what exactly the problem is and then you will be able to know how to resolve the problem.

Take care and good luck

Temprature running 3/4

This is most probably the thermostat that needs to be replaced. It is a rather inexpensive repair or if you feel up to it you could probably do it yourself. It is well worth looking into because an engine that runs too cool will consume more fuel than necessary.

Good luck!
