Fingie, it appears that you drove in the rain, and at night? Both have an impact on FE, so the 5.4 l/100km could have been even better

mostly i drove in the dry, rain started first after refueling




The air intake is in the upper grille and im gonna relocate it closer to the engine. also keep the air cleaner longer cleaner and decrease the amount of bugs

Did you notice any change in the fuel-efficiency in the rain?

Some months ago, some people told me they felt like their fuel-injected cars had an improvement in the fuel-efficiency in rainy days. At least when they could avoid traffic jams anyway...

My best mileages have always been on damp/drizzling days. Not heavy rain that boys your wheels down. I assumed it noticeably reduced rolling resistance and maybe brake deag even.

We should lubricate our roads more often!

"had to beat the rear drums like a hippie on salvia."

I'm going to remember that, and hopefully use it in conversation.

How can we explain that? Or maybe we shouldn't even try to do so, and you might just feel tempted to add a water injection system to the Twingo

i have definitely thought about that probably the swapped engine will have mildly high compression, a small turbocharger to increase efficiency and a custom megasquirt ECU

(well, my lada had a non-crossflow, swirl-type combustion chamber (for better starting, even atomization and burning of even crappier fuel, but it raises piston temperature on higher revs so it gave really noticeable good results in the rain)
