Commenting on fuel consumption is like asking "how long should a piece of string be?". The variables to be considered are tyre pressures, size of tyres, width of tyres,tread patterns,wheel alignment, loads carried by the vehicle, climate temperature and conditions, driving techniques,traffic conditions, speeds travelled, use of gears to maintain correct torque range from the engine, electrical loads required from the alternator and terrain conditions
Some of the things that you can do to improve fuel economy include selecting neutral when stopped as this reduces the load on the engine at idle and the fuel setting is less, having your foot on the clutch loads up the thrust bearings on the crankshaft. An automatic is always trying to drive when stopped so by placing it in neutral when stationary allows the engine to idle at a lower fuel setting. run on standard size tyres and increase the air pressure around 4psi make for less rolling resistance from the tyres so the economy will be improved. Carrying as little as is necessary, (That includes driver and passenger weights) reduces the load on the engine--more economy.Using a cruise control were possible or reading the traffic conditions so that vast speed changes are required less so will improve economy. experiment with different octane rated fuels ( be wary of e-fuels) While you may be reading manufacturers sales rubbish about the expect fuel consumption of a particular vehicle remember that it is sales talk as economy is heavily dependant on engine/vehicle design and driver technique. Basically there is no one single thing to consider for fuel economy but ultimately it all comes down to the driver.

For a 1.3L car, sounds like it needs a tune up or some work, that is not good fuel consumption.

Does the driving on overdrive mode cause high fuel consumption, because the transmission use the first three ratios mostly?


driving in over drive mode actually is what gives the economy as the engine rpms will be around 300 less than direct drive . Lower rpms = fuel savings
OD should come in around 60 klm/hr and drop out at around 50 klm/hr. When you are accelerating hold the pedal in a set position and watch the rev counter (rpms ) and each gear change you will see the rpms drop and then build back up as the vehicle speed increases At 100klm/hr the revs should be around 3200 rpms or less but if over ( say 3500 rpms) then may be the OD is not coming in. One way to test a box operation is to find a speed shop with a dynomometer and test the gear selections against loads and engine rpms

Driving in overdrive, say on a trip where your speeds are over 65 to 70..Actually saves gas, but using overdrive to drive around town not only uses more gas, but can cause damage to your transmission.

2003 Passat GLX V6 4motion with 194K km. Requires 1L of oil every 4-5000 km. Is this normal?


That consumption is great, no worries.
Most healthy cars will consume a quart in 2,400 to 3,00 KM.

Car manufacturers will not repair and consider a quart in 965 km to be normal, I would be livid at that consumption.

If consumption gets too much, consider a high mileage blend, like Casteroil. It is a semi synthetic, and actually does lower consumption.

There is actually nothing that you could do to lower your consumption, but keep everything clean and maintained.

What do you want from 1000 cc? Imagine that there are motorcycle wich have engines bigger than 1000cc. Is normal to have no power at this engine capacity.

What are the possible reasons for high fuel consumption?


a low cylinder will cause a reduction in fuel economy. also in the winter months many states oxygenate thier fuel, it helps with emmisions but reduces economy. higher octane fuel usually has less feul economy, drop to the mid grade
