Dude what r u talkin abt man? u r car tilts from left to right...what r u driving a car on hydraulix?
The car does bend to the side when cornering but thats different... pushing the chasis constantly is more hard than it curving on the bend.

Actually, when you do the shaking thing, one side of the shocks is going down the other is going up. I imagine this wouldn't really contribute much to the suspension/chassis wear.

yah because a choke increases the flow of fuel ...
has nothing to do with reserves...
anyway i think kooldude has understood how it all works ...
lets just leave it to that..

THis thread is going really funny.. haha..

I guess he pulled the choke so the car took in more fuel and this explains the concept of 2kms per 5 liter of fuel.. lol.. anywayz coming back to the topic.. whole cornering you wont affect you suspension but your shocks and tyres wear out due to excessive cornering.

Was going through the archives. Sorry to rake this thread up but the Standard Herald actually did have a lever that allowed you to switch between the main and reserve fuel tanks. The lever could be operated from inside the boot.

Default Monitoring car FE simple way

We can monitor the car FE on the basis of ODO Reading at 50% level and maintaining the fuel level around the 50% level(eg: 30%to60%)

A)Record the ODO Reading when fuel gauge reading is exactly at the 50% mark.

B)When the fuel level is well below the 50% level the tank, refill to get fuel level well above the 50% mark.Record the filled quantity.

C)Record the ODO Reading again when the fuel gauge is at 50% mark.

We can compute the FE = (Difference in ODO Reading)/ Fuel quantity.

Continue recording ODO Reading and fuel filled alternatively. FE after each fill can be calculated for monitoring purpose.

For better accuracy,first and last ODO readings and cumulative fuel filled over a period (say a month) can be taken for calculation.

ODO Readings are to taken when the car is on levl road.
