Rate per kilometer for a 3.5 liter Kia Sorento petrol engine 2012 model (total of 2600 km driven)


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.

My Chrysler 2003 model consumped up one litre of Petrol per one kilometer high fuel consumption. What can be the cause?.


i doubt very much if it would be running at 1 litre per 1 kilometer
at very rich combustion stops at 10:1 as the fuel puts he fire out
I'm not disputing your figures just I would be looking for a fuel leak from a hose , filter leak or leak in the tank or some one stealing fuel
run the fault codes
check the fuel system from tank to manifold

I edited your question for readability. As long as it is gas and not oil, it is about right. A tune up service could probably improve it a little.

My peugeot 406 ,fuel is leaking on the fuel pressure regulator when i fill the fuel tank and the consumption is very high about 1 liter per 7km.what could be the problem.


first and foremost the fuel leak you identified at or around the pressure regulator is a red flag. driving a vehicle with a fuel leak is extremely dangerous. once the fuel leak is fixed a simple tune up while alleviate most all fuel drains

Are all petrol tanks the same size or does it go on the size of ur engine .


Assuming you are asking are all Petrol tanks same size on VW Golfs... if thats the question then the answer is YES..The engine size does not affect the Petrol tank size only consumption (kilometers per litre/ or miles per gallon depending your location...assumed since you called it Petrol you are European) The different YEAR models would have different capacities and or shapes depending on configuration of the vehicle.. but the Golfs didnt go under much design change from 99-2002 so you should be safe if looking for a replacement.

High fuel consumption


Hi There,

If you are wanting to lessen the high fuel consumption you must do the following.
1 - Over-Reving is a big no no. Keep the revs between 2 and 4 thousand rpm. (it is highly easy to over rev so lessen the throttle)
2 - You can buy a product called octane booster. The higher the octane in the fuel tank the better for your car. To use insert into fuel tank as you would a bowser nozzle and release amount of octane as per product intructions prior to filling up with petrol, then add petrol after. This ensures proper mixing of octane throughout tank.

Hope this helps

Cheers Buckaroo,
Chris.

Fuel consumption very high


make sure when you are traveling on the highway to have it in the highest gear there is it will be the first forward gear on the gearshift the one after neural. also check the plugs and wires and air filter. you might have to go to a dealer for the manual but you may be able to get it from a parts store
