Thumbs up Ecomodding and stuff: VAZ-2111 " the UnArmored Personnel Carrier



Hello there! This is the more proper thread to the "UAPC", where i post stuff that somehow involves my car.

On sunday, i had to tow my friend's '87 Celica home, it fails to run properly for some reason. Shes looking for a more useful daily, and giving the Celica a rest/inspiration.

Did i mention that UAPC only has 13K miles on it's odometer It has only 2 service markings in the servicebook.

My buddy theorized that a older person bought it new, but passed on later and due to Lada/Vaz's bad reputation in finland caused it to just sit somewhere until someone sold/gave it to the car dealer, who auctioned the car.

It has no "bad notes" in it's Vehicle Inspection sheet, and the next inspection is In June, so there's a lot of car i bought for €270

I am buying new ignition leads today, and I am going to plan a better way to attach my toolbox into the trunk. It isn't attached with anything but one old ski strap, stapled to the trunk floor :lol:

(it's 1 AM just now here lol, sleep time)

Changed the spark plug wires, and adjusted the throttle cable.

I drove it today on some very bad trails, this car is a lot more happy for terrain than it appears.

I am looking into a warm air intake (it has a knock sensor )

And some rear skirts

Just calculated the mileage: 38 US MPG @ mixed driving, only mod is raised tire pressure.
Fuel used is 95E10(gas that is about 90U.S octanes, with 10% ethanol)

and I run 10w-40 in my engine. Gearbox uses GL-5 certified mineral oil.
And the oils are made by a cheap swedish brand and bought from a hardware store

The car weighs a ton, and the only thing i do to drive economically is using engine braking

We'll see how low it becomes with a vacuum gauge and engine kill switch

Kinda predictable, considering that it's basically a Russian Fiat

Not sure if you have ever seen a Fiat Palio or a Fiat Strada there in Finland, though they were once available in Western Europe, but despite their availability only in FWD they're widely used for maintenance services even in the countryside where unpaved roads are frequent. And at least until 2004 there were some versions available with a dedicated-ethanol MPFI engine which looked similar to yours.
