Petrol Consumption for 2.0i ZX
Posted 18 March 2003 - 10:50 AM
after full refill, needle will stay at the extreme right until between 80 to 88 km, then it will move to in between the 1st quarter.
130-140km -- hits first quarter mark
180-190km -- hits half mark
270km -- hits third quarter mark
400+++ -- hits last marker
consumption is presently about 9 to 10km per litre.

Called me paranoid, but I like my car to be as perfect as possible, without any noises here and there and things like that.
Will probably wait for the next fuel up. Swithching from a 1.3 to a 2.0, I feel as if there ain't enough gears in this car. Sorry for sounding very 'ulu'.

I find that the needle for the fuel gauge likes to stay at the quarter mark. so, the only indicator that there aren't much fuel left is when I take a corner, the needle gravitates towards E( the E being Empty not Enough!I still like that joke)
my zx 2.0i has some noises here and there especially with the air-cond off, radio off and the glass up. I get these squeeking sounds, it appears to be coming from the back. will try to stuff some paper here or there to reduce the noise

otherwise... it's the rear parcel shelf... put some insulation material where the shelf rests... and that ought to solve the probs...

Just to check with all of you, is it normal for the oil temprature to go to the half mark and stay there? When I floor the accelerator, my oil temp goes up and of course, due to the speed, the radiator temp level goes down. Just wanna know if this is a norm.

oil should hover around the 80's to just below 90 degrees... any more and i suspect it may need an overhaul... my mom's ZX 1.9i has a oil temp of 70++ degrees... never more unless there's no water in the radiator... and radiator temp is approx 80++degrees...
my ZX 1.9i i have an oil temp of 80++ degrees and water temp of 87-90degrees...

Well guys, I finally figured out the last piece of the puzzle in regards to fuel effiency. I just changed my oils lump gasket to the peogeot 405 SRI gasket. I heard from Asli Auto that the gasket for peogeot is better suited for the whather in Malaysia.
Only costed me Rm 15 for the gasket and the workmanship only RM 45.
Now fuel economy is much better, coupled with better compression ratio, hence more power. I would advise any one with a proble with oil slump gasket to get it changed into the peogeot 405 SRI gasket.
I changed the said gasket about 1year 5 months ago, however the ex-directional guy installed a rubber gasket which was useless.
Just my two cents.

I don't think you mentioned you had changed the plugs and i think you got to do this fast. This time, use the 406 type, 3 pin -ve electrode, they run smoother.
