What do you do to attain these numbers?

somebody explain the maintianence schedules if any.
hello there!!..

just filled 33 ltrs or petrol and it gave me 482kms when the low fuel light came on. this was in city traffic.. well i maintain constant speeds and RPM below 2K
rev it only when i am supposed to, specially when a white civic passes me by or there is some eyecandy!!

maintainence, well my pistons and valves were replaced at 33K kms, due to a cooling problem, i use NGK G Power Plugs, a Viper FFE (wonderful) and normal shell mineral oil changed at 5K Kms.

by the way, the exhaust throws quite some water drops and the smoke is white due to the cold weather (its fine in day, but white during early mornings say 1 to 4 in the morning). i mean there is too much water vapor coming off the exhaust, what does it mean?

Hi,

Of late I have heard stories about water being found in petrol tanks. This, I am told, is due to adulteration by pumps as they increase the condensation/moisture by adding water

The droplets may be due to that. Or well, it may be nothing at all
