The 8-valve 60hp didn't have more than 80Nm, but the high-compression 71/79hp versions had close to 90Nm. Well, the higher internal frictions might kill some of the efficiency

Also I have never seen a 1.0 8v Corsa in my Country, all the corsa-s with a 1.0 engine were 12v 3cyl models.
The 4cyl 1.0L was only available in Brazil, Uruguay and maybe in Argentina. Not even in South Africa...

My Corsa C has the latest 1.0 12v engine with twinport system, two O2 sensors but if you ask me 5,5l / 100 is to much for this engine, it must be possible to get it somehow lower. Because my friend in a Toyota Yaris 1.0 16v manages to make 4,5l / 100.
The Yaris is visibly smaller than a Corsa, I have seen few in Uruguay and even few ones with Uruguayan plates in my hometown during the summer.

Yeah, that's what I thought as well.
That was before joining ecomodder.

Increase the tire pressure - keep an eye on them to see if they still wear evenly.

Fabricate a grill block - keep an eye on the coolant temperature in summer !

Start coasting in neutral instead of braking or using engine braking - means you have to plan WAAAAAAAAY ahead when you want to or need to stop.

Lower your speed - it doesn't do much for the average, don't worry.
Lower the rpm at which you shift.


In general, go through the 100 hypermiling tips and 65 vehicle mods to see what you can easily do.
After those tricks become new habits, pick some new tricks from the list.

It's not so hard to find some spots to take a few kilograms out of a Corsa C
