Hmm, my fuel economy isn't getting better. It is getting worse! Last two tanks were between the 18 and 19 km/L.. I think I'm not paying attention enough

Well, I was wrong! I achieved my goal of 20 km/L. I actually made 20,5 km/L. That's about 47 mpg I guess

Mainly speeds between 80 km/h and 110 km/h. Some city traffic and traffic jams. Last two weeks I tried to use the right gear for the right speed instead of trying to keep the revs as low as possible.
So my goal is reached. The next is trying to keep the fuel usage around the 20 km/L. It will be hard but my overall average is 18 km/L.. I have work to do!

Hi all! It's been a while since I posted an update.
The average fuel consumption is now 18,5 km/L. The last tank was way above 20 km/L, the calculation was not that accurate because the car was on a slight slope so it was not filled properly I guess. But even if I could fill up with 5 more liters it was a great tank, the best untill now! Without the 5 liters it was 24,6 km/L, that is about 56 mpg.

I also save of money by doing most of the maintenance myself. Last weekend I did an oil change and I serviced the brakes so all is going smooth now . It took some time but the costs were below the 50 euro's.

I guess you may also consider it kinda entertaining to perform the maintenance on your own car.

It is! It's kinda relaxing to be honest. It takes some time but you get to know your car better. I just love the simplicity of these cars, with some basic tools you can do about everything.

That's what I like about the older cars.

Me too . I like the comfort of a newer car ( I'm looking for a possible next car, kinda dig the Volvo V40 on LPG ), but all the complicated electronics scares me.
