I'm sure you already know that the 1.3 cars came with 13 inch rims, but used lower profile tires than the standard Metro 13 inchers.

My goal: 3,1 liters to the hundred driving at a comfortable pace.
You have seen my car's speed vs. MPG chart, yes?


I can cruise at 3.1 L/100 km (76 mpg) in summer weather, on a level road @ about 70 km/h.
