Another potential issue could be the gates in your intake manifold are sticking. If the motor sounds like it sitting at a really high idle speed, try removing the tube from your air filter box and spraying some carb cleaner into the manifold.

System is probably running "open loop".

use a scantool to get system codes.

You likely need a tuneup, i.e. O2 sensor(s), fuel injectors (system) cleaning.

My 2001 kia rio 1.3l consumes so much gas at about 9 kilometers per liter. I believe they can go upto 14-15 kph per liter. What should i do to minimize gas consumption?


You can over-inflate your tires by about 8%, use a K&N air filter, drive 15 kph slower on the highway, accelerate slowly and never accelerate uphill, draft behind larger vehicles, regular maintenance (oil changes, spark plugs, wires, filters), use a fuel system cleaner every oil change. These can increase your fuel economy drastically, but if you are still noticing poor fuel economy you should have the car checked by a mechanic for what might be causing the high fuel consumption.

i hope this helps

2001 kia rio fuel pump does not work


Are you positive its the fuel pump? Have you tried running the pump with the return line off to see if it pumps fuel? They don't always have to make a noise.

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
