There's a few people here with that 1L engine (me for one), so there's lots of tips on how to get higher fuel mileage. The main thing is changing your driving style. Also, make sure you have a good engine to start with. Check your cylinder compression and make sure all three are above 180 psi, preferably 200 - 210 psi. You should use a mid-grade gasoline, not the cheapest. Hopefully you aren't using too much oil. Read these forums and ask questions and you will gain knowledge and increase fuel economy.

Don't worry so much about making perfect sentences or perfect English! Get it out the best you can and we'll ask questions if we don't understand. You are doing good and very understandable.

How much acetone are you using per tank? There's lots of controversy on whether this helps or not.
