Hi to everyone! Old XP10 joined.

Pardon my english, as I'm not a native speaker.

I've been reading this forum for a while, but decided to join for few question now when I have old and cheap enough car to get my hand dirty.

Living in a small city we don't have to commute car as a everyday basis, our 2004 Yaris 1.3 (Toyota XP10, also known as Echo or Vitz hatchback) get bit over 10tkm(like 600 miles)/year, with fuel consumption varying from 5,5l to 7,5l (35-45mpg) depending on conditions and if it's been mainly highway or city driving. This is our fullsized family vagon, as we ride bikes or walk a lot.

Car is so cheap and already quite fuel efficient, so I'm not calculating any paybacks for investments, just having some fun in the carage and trying to keep the car going. So far its been only repairing and maintenance. All of the mods are going to be minor to moderate, first full lenght belly pan + diffuser, then something else, who knows. Making it run with E85 fuel to avoid fossils is on the plans too.
