It actually makes sense. When the temperature is higher, there is more latent vaporization heat in the air, so either a higher volume of lower-grade fuel or an improvement to the octane rating are desirable for knock mitigation during the compression stroke. Did you already notice any decrease to fuel consumption while driving somewhere with a higher amount of moisture in the air? It has a similar effect to switching from a lower octane rating to a higher one.

Yes, in a naturally aspirated one, it responded better to the addition of gas and burned less. And in Turbo, he also reacted better, but combustion was unchanged, worse when the rain falls, the fuel consumption increases ... even at a standstill, instead of 0.5 l / h, it shows 0.9l / h ...

Was it featured with port-injection or direct injection? My only experiences with turbocharged engines in a rainy day involved turbodiesels and direct injection.

Even though direct injection is often pointed out to bring spark-ignited engines closer to a Diesel-like efficiency, it's surprising a higher amount of moisture has such an opposite effect.

Nearly 50mpg

G'day as we say here in New Zealand.
I have a Suzuki 1.4 liter Baleno Automatic and with my Eco driving a get 21.2kml that is 4.72liter per 100km or 49.9mpg US or 59.9mpg UK. so I think it is possible for me to get 50mpg US or 60mpg UK, I hope so.

What haven't you done? Air up the tires? Splitter/diverter?

Thanks.

On the front and rear of the underbody, respectively. There is a Search field in the upper left, for what it's worth.

I did put an factory sourced undertray under the engine a couple years ago but nothing at the back underneath as there is not much to change under there with the airflow I think but please tell me that I am wrong.
