Interesting vehicle. It looks a lot like the newer Scion xB. What kind of mileage do you get with it and how large is the engine?

1.3L engine, so thats almost 1300cc. its somewhat similar to the Toyota bB, which is like xB's distant cousin.

i got about 12.8km/L prior. did some modifications and some change in driving behavior, its doing about 14.3km/L now. Both figures are in the city with some traffic.

thinking of getting the Scangauge II

avaxis -

I found the Perodua website :

Perodua : Perodua Myvi - It's A Passion

It's fun to look at all the other Perodua cars. I think you got the coolest looking one.

thanks for the compliment. i used to get 12.8km/l, manufacturer quotes 13.5km/l. i recently modified my car, changed the entire exhaust system. its a little loud due to the straight flow design, and i have to keep a light foot to keep it quiet (somehow it gets louder due to throttle position).

my last tank i got 14.3km/l. the most recent tank i got 15km/l. same roads and same traffic conditions (go to work everyday).
