Just got back from a quick holiday in italy, and done my second fill up, and therefore my first fuel log, which I will post soon. Managed to get 45mpg (us), which I'm pretty pleased with as I wasn't driving overly economical, just trying to get used to the car.

For my second fuel log I've pumped up the tyres a bit (5psi over the recommended for the car), and I have noticed a bit of a difference so far, I think. As for getting an MPGuino, I have no idea if the car is fuel injected, though I will probably do some digging this week as I'm going to have a bit of free time on my hands.

I did a little research and it looks like with a .96l displacement it's the 1995 Ax Elation 1.0i? If that's the case I believe the I is for injection but I'm having a hard time finding a good spec sheet for that car.

As I was typing I found more information, it looks like in 1993 all of the gas (petrol) versions of the citroen Ax were switched to fuel injection.

I've been having difficulty with it too. You're spot on with the model though. The manual that comes with the car isnt much use either, there's nto alot of technical info in it, just all the simple stuff for maintenance and the like. Thanks for looking though.

I would imagine it's fuel injected, my N reg 1996 ax debut (base model) is fuel injected so your higher level model would have it.
Did a nice intro thread when i started posted on the forum about my one.
http://ecomodder.com/forum/showthrea...1-0i-4485.html
My car doesn't look that nice now, needs a good wash/clay/machine polish and some rust repair on the bonnet lip and wheel arch.

I don't know if you plan to ecomod it but AXMonster is the only guy i've seen on this forum who has a modded ax, though i haven't seen him post on here for ages, might be worth trying to PM/email him.

If you do any mods post them up here, would love to read about it, i never have the spare cash to do any.
If you can get a MPGuino or similar installed, pm me and tell me how you did it, since the E-ODB (ODB-II with a different name) standard wasn't enforced on european cars till 2000 the AX doesn't have the port.

I am planning on doing a load of mods, have added them to the garage page so feel free to have a look, they were just the ones I could think of off the top of my head.
Going to go have a root around in the engine bay sometime this week, does anyone know what I need to be looking for to find out if I can install an MPGuino?

Yours is the injected 954cc 51hp engine. My non injected is 44hp. Your Elation could potentially be the most economical petrol AX.

In NZ we barely got the later injected models, with myself only ever seeing 2 of these advertised in years.

Damn, thats sucks. At least youve got one for yourself.

I'm not sure about it being the most economical Ax, it's only 4 speed which I'm sure doesnt help. I think the 1.1l had a 5 speed gearbox which would mean it should get better highway FE.

Yep, but if you dont go faster than 50mph the 4 speed with is mild cam, smaller valve diameter and smaller carb, at less than 50mph speeds is more economical.

I've had a 1.1trs and a 1.1tre and they have hugely different ratios. 5th in the 1.1tre was lower than 4th in the 10re(with larger tyres)...though 5th in the 1.1trs was taller

The 1liter motor also has higher compression and will only run properly on 98octane or higher whereas the 1.1liter up needs at least 95octane. I'm not sure about models made for the Japanese market
