Unhappy Kia Pride CD 5 / Mazda B1 Engine 1.1 cc Efficiency Question

Hi guys maybe someone can help me with this question ...

i have a Kia Pride CD 5 and feels like it's consuming too much i did a mileage check yesterday i drove like 300Km at 80km average speed and computed the Consumption without Aircon i have like 10Km/Li consumption .. and i've checked Sparks and Burned is Good all Cylinders gave Brown Tips, Oil Level is ok .. Air Filters are new .. bigger car can get more Mileage per little than this Little engine .. any suggestions??

Thanks in advance

That consumption is high for a small engine.I have had small Nissan 1.2 L engines that averaged around 14-16 km/ L . Have you checked the timing? it may be retarded, that would give poor milage. Other than that it might be an idea to have an exhaust analyser put on to test the fuel/ air mixture the engine is running.

TAKE YOUR TIME, THINK IT OUT, DO IT RIGHT, DO IT ONCE!! original quote by me as far as I know. :rolleyes:

i was told of a better way to get proper fuel mileage computations...

step (1)
fill up the tank until the the pump automatically turns off

step (2)
set the odometer to zero and do your usual trips

step (3)
upon nearing the empty mark, fill up again until the pump automatically shuts off...

take note of the odometer reading and the number of liters loaded. repeat steps 1-3 three times and average out the results. that's your fuel consumption.

but if your measurement is accurate, then indeed your mileage is quite low. sometimes our driving habits also counts a lot in increasing / diminishing our fuel consumption (like sudden acceleration).....

my cd5 averages 12-14kms / liter with smooth driving. it goes down to 10-11 kms / liter when i drive like a madman (fortunately this does not happen often)....

yeah! i've done that fill up and then drive .. i only drive smooth 80 kph i dont do jackrabbit starts .. today i just computed again and it is 10km/li .. and just have the timing done after that .. now i just filled up my tank and will check after it's done .. they opened the top of my engine and adjusted the clearance ?? .. and they set stuff on it also .. i dunno maybe it'll improve now .. the mechanica says the timing is WAAYYY off but check it now

@ Nameless
my cd5 averages 12-14kms / liter with smooth driving. it goes down to 10-11 kms / liter when i drive like a madman (fortunately this does not happen often).... ??

so this is the Real Mileage of a B1 Engine?? kinda poor .. 1300 can go 16km/l i wonder what is the real deal with having this little engine .. i thought it will be more efficient .

10-11 kms is more the average for our cars - please bear in mind that these are 13 to 15 year old cars. have you overhauled your engine? when i got my car brand new, its fuel consumption remained at a steady 15 kms / liter. of course with time, the piston rings wear out, the cylinder head lining wears out, the camshaft may develop imperfections, the compression may be a bit off - in short if you really want to achieve maximum mileage - then general overhaul may be the way to go....

or you can shift to a bigger engine - (usually mazda engines fits our rides). the combination of bigger engine and a small frame does increase mileage....plus the engine is not that "stressed" out as the little B1 engine....

If the mechanic fixed the timing, after it being way off the mark you should get a big improvement in economy.

friends with z5 engines in their kias gets rather poor mileage, around 10-12 kms/liter....but acceleration is greatly increased - talk about having lotsa power.....

was told that b6 engine is best, with mileage up to 16 kms / li....

but please bear in mind that these may not automatically apply to everyone with b6 engines, a lot depends on our driving habits, tire conditions, average speeds, your usual driving locations, etc etc.....
