Petrol Consumption -c180K Kompressor,1.6 (2009)

39 posts in this topic

Hi people,

 

would appreciate your feedback

 

as I just got a 2nd hand c180K(2009), mileage 92k.

 

Bought at Republic Auto, they mention they just did a basic servicing.

 

As I am curious about the petrol consumption. I have pump Esso 8000, 59L, travel only 493KM = 8.3L/km

 

Is this normal? I have just added "Redline oil" direct to the petrol. Is there others "oil" or etc I can help to save on the petrol?

 

Would appreciate for experience in c180k would comment on their average consumption.

 

Thank you

Welcome to SGMerc and congrats on you new ride!

I have pump Esso 8000, 59L, travel only 493KM = 8.3L/km

I think you mean 8.3km/L. A lot of factors affect FC, being heavy footed, etc.

My FC is about 11.2Km/L

FLw204 c180K. No engine mod. 18" alloy rims and PSS shoes.

 

I still feel Esso 8000 is the best for my engine =p

Better than V-Power(surprisingly), in terms of torque and noise.

Thank you for the warm welcome.

Mine is all stock, on 17".

Thinking of ways to save on petrol to at least 10km/L.

It depends as well how much of expressway you travel. I find benz consumption very good on highway, but quite jialat for stop-start driving. So not much point comparing consumption with others without knowing their driving style vs yours, and their urban/highway ratio vs yours.

 

I drive an e200 and my 2 full tanks so far gave 8km/l and 9.4km/l respectively… quite a lot of diff because for the 2nd tank, I drove a lot more expressway.

there was once i did this:

1. rev up to 2.5k rpm on acceleration, gently, subsequently less than 2k

2. keep the speed up to 80kmh, mostly 7xkmh.

3. nearly whole journey on highway

4. minimize braking

 

the result: 16.x km per litre

 

of course.. cannot tahan driving like that.. perhaps in another 20 years  :lol:

Have your ride did any decarbonizing before?

If not, you may want to do one since it is already 5 years?

If you turn the aircon off as well, you may hit 20km/l :thumbsu:

Yes, I was thinking of doing this. I have just change the spark plug, as the current condition wear-off.

 

I also add some "thing" for the engine. hopefully all this helps.

 

Side track a bit, for the wiper tank, mine have leakage, is it under the warranty?

 

Very sian liao. haix

Wow! You guys are really light footed! If I hit below 12L/100Km considered very good already. By 500km my fuel light will light up already.

I always like to challenge how low it can go!

2012 Nov FL W204 7G Tronics

I have hit 4.8L/100km before

This pic taken at 4.9L/100km 20.4km/L - only with 17" stock tires i.e 2252/45/17 all round!

With 17" AMG IV back with 245/40/17 never go below 5L/100km :(

Tell me about it! I'm on 19" staggered, with MKB and a throttle response device too! K&N air filter and a quad exhaust system. I removed my spare tyre from the car. It doesn't help much with the fuel saving but helps with the 0-100 timing. The car is just too fantastic to be driven slowly!

Seriously.... If you guys wanna save petrol.... Buy Chery QQ.... whack all u want.... still 12-15km/ltr.... minimum... You've already paid so much for it..... just enjoy lah.... it's not like your petrol bill is $500-$600 every month... you wanna save 10% and not enjoy the drive??? My 2 lorries are going at 7km/ltr and imagine  they are driven at least 130km per day... So U can imagine the bills...

Didn't you just bought from Republic? Should go back to them and get them to fix it. Covered under Lemon Law, i think, as this is not a wear-n-tear part.

Hi, I also got my C180 Pre FL 2nd hand in Dec 13. 87k mileage. Was getting shit FC like 6-8 KM per litre (12-16L/100KM). After going to my friend's shop to try his carbon clearing on engine, it got back to normal 10KM per litre (8-10L/100km)  and above till now with mix of highway and city drive. You can go check it out their facebook at Klear Karbon or website at www.klearkarbon.com

Now I am confused. Before tuning u've got 6-8 l/100km and after tuning u've got 10 l/100km? Doesn't it mean your FC got worse?
