Very Good morning to all Guruís :

Need your help for my ZEN, I have 2003 Nov Zen MPFI engine, I got it on 7th June, it had 39400 km on odo, I drives my car in Mumbai (from Borivali to Dadar ) now its 40796 km on odo, I have change engine oil, Air filter, Oil Filter when I got ot also got spark plugs cleaned, I am getting 13.5 km in city without A/C, I guess this is poor mileage for car like Zen, plz guide me how can I improve mileage of my car, I guess if I runs it on A/c then I will get 10km /liter which will be very expensive for me, Also of I converts it on LPG then I guess I will get 11 km w/o AC in city I very worried

What was the mileage of the car earlier? Doesn't seem to be too bad a mileage for city with heavy traffic.

usually in moderate traffic conditions,the zen returns 15kmpl w/o ac and 13 with ac.get the fuel injectors cleaned,check the ignition timing,and get the engine decarbonised.

it happned on my alto to my alto started giving about 13 in city w/o a/c

so i took to it to the M.A.S.S and had it serviced

every filter and oil was changed and the injector cleaned

and the car syrted giving the normal 17+ w/o a/c in the city

i would suggest you to take your car to the M.A.S.S. have it injector cleaned
