Check your carburettor secondary dashpot is engaging. Check the short hose that comes form the carby body to the dashpot for cracks.

Not much to be done, however there is always this:

Proper tune-up
proper tires, alignment
Proper tire inflation (this is huge)
clean air filter, perhaps an air filter that is less restrictive
proper motor oil
Be certain the engine is at proper temp, not running too cool.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

SOURCE: How much is a used 89 delta 88 worth with new

There are many factors that go into a cars value. You best bet to get the best ball park figure is to google search NADA blue book or Kelly Blue Book. These companies specialize in determining the value of vehicles and are the industry standard when it comes to car value.

Once you are on there site you will enter several key important pieces of information like engine size, 2 door or 4 door, Royal or brougham, sunroof, what power option, Etc. and then give you the approximate values.

Off the top of my head you could expect any where from $1000 to $2500 depending on the condition. New brake, tires, or other repairs make no difference on the value of the car. Those are things that needed to be done although they are good selling points.

The easiest (and most important) things are:

Engine tuneup. New plugs, plug wires, and air filter. If it has a distributor cap and rotor, replace them, making sure the plug wires go back to the same places they came off of.

Tires. Good condition and proper air pressure.

Brakes. Good condition and not dragging. E-brake is free and not dragging.

If you like to drive very fast, slow down. a "heavy foot" is very bad for fuel economy.

After the easy stuff is done, check fuel economy again and you may see an improvement of 20% or more!

How can i make my 1996 toyota camry 2.2l sei auto


8 km per litre, or 12.5 litres/100km is certainly a bit heavy for that model, but not disastrously so, as in city driving it was rated at 10 L/100 km when new by Govt agencies where I am in Aust.

So the usual suspects in an older car are

- dirty air filter
- low tire pressures
- spark plugs worn or fouled
- ignition timing incorrect
- fuel pressure too high
- fuel injectors worn
- evap canister filter blocked
- emissions system faulty (EGR valve or Vacuum Switching Valve)

How to compute kilometers per litre


You would fill up the vehicle, then divide the mileage traveled by the amount of fuel it took to fill the tank again.
So assuming you filled the tank each time, you would divide 609km by 100.4 ltr which is .1648 or 16.49 L/100km
Thats about 40 mpg.

How can I get better fuel con on my 2008 BT50 2.5


That's typical for one of these vehicles and some people are doing worse. Good luck doing better than 10 km to the litre.

A heavy vehicle (1500 +kgs) and 2.5 litre Turbo is not a recipe for terrific economy. The engine is always going to be working hard.

Aside from how you drive the BT50 the best way of achieving good economy is regular servicing of the vehicle. I would not recommend allowing a tuner mess with the engine's computer settings.

What some are doing is fitting much larger wheels and tyres thus changing the gearing in the vehicle. However the speedo will need to be recalibrated if you do this to make the speedo and the vehicle legal/roadworthy. This will give you more economy but you are increasing unsprung weight and your acceleration will obviously be reduced in a higher geared BT50 compared with the standard spec.
There are also legal limits in some juristictions on how larger you can go up on tyre size beyond the largest tyre fitted by the manufacturer on the model of vehicle.
