Get your head down on the driver's side floor and look at the clutch cable coming out of the firewall. Push the clutch pedal in and see where the resistance starts and where you start seeing the cable pulled. If it's more than a couple inches before the cable starts pulling, you need to adjust it.

You have to give us the price of fuel and. and type of driving. Was it all hiway miles or a lot of city miles This all makes a difference. Also how many litres of fuel. You can do it yourself by dividing the liters of fuel into the kilometers and multiplying the price you paid for a liter of fuel.

Driving style is the usual cause, such as riding with foot on clutch pedal, holding the car in place on a hill using the clutch, or more likely, "spirited" driving.

HARD AND STIFF STEERING


It won't hurt to drive it. Steering will just be stiffer without the power steering. Once you are moving, it will be easier to steer.
Don't know the problem, a shop will have to check it out. But it is okay to drive it.

The stiff clutch may just be the nature of the car. Ask your friend if they know of any problems with the clutch. If it doesn't make any odd noises, I think it would be safe. If the clutch is cable controlled, rather than a hydraulic clutch. it may need adjusting. It won't affect the stiffness, but it may make shifting a little smoother.

Clutch pedal has become tight


it sounds as if the clutch pressure plate is on the point of collapse if you dont do anything it can blow the hydraulic seals. if it has a cable try lubricating  this before condeming it .
