@epyupc...I'm not really sure, but it could be that someone could have a cold/insensitive nose. So then they wouldn't necessarily smell the gases, but still inhale them. Also I suppose the better the car runs, the less gases come out. Thus the quantity required to smell them may not be reached, but over a period you could still die inhaling.

btw...superb bike, bro! what speeds were you hittin when you took off? how quick is the 100 run?

For every 3 mins the car idles with the a/c on it looses 1 km of drivable distance.

epyupc, the exhaust gas consists of various gases, it is the unburnt hydrocarbons that you can smell, CO is basically odourless.

rtech my skoda shows 0.4l/h without ac and 0.6l/h or sometimes 0.7l/h with ac

I guessed that it would be the impurities that one could smell.

Thats why I was curious how people accidently die from inhaling car exhaust in a closed room etc....

Like v1p3r said, could be wierd cases or long time exposure.

@v1p3r
I've done under 5.
Under 4 is possible, but difficult to keep the front down.

its possible that thre are alot carbon particles in the piston or the radiator must cloged with some dirt so less air gets in the piston or the timing of the valves must be wrong or the base rpm must have increased if there is a timing error my esteem had the same problem the base rpm was 900 a little timing adjustment would fix that

Rtech ,

just checked the consumption figures again yesterday and today -

1) 0.6 ltrs/hr with the a/c on

2) 0.4 ltrs/hr without the a/c

by the way have you noticed how the consumption increases when you press the accelerator and the best part at 80 kmph if i remove my leg from the accelerator the consumption is 0.0 ltrs/hr - hehe ...going at 80kmph without using diesel !!

cheers
