Maintenance Of Vehicle

 

 How to Measure Fuel Consumption :

  •  
Fill the petrol in the fuel tank until gas vapours can be seen in the fuel inlet pipe.
  •  
Once the gas vapours can be seen in the fuel inlet pipe wait for about 20~30 seconds and if possible wait for more than a minute for more accurate calculation.
  •  
Do not shake the vehicle's body.
  •  
As soon as the gas vapours sinks add more petrol till the gas surface is visible once again.
  •  
Initialize the trip meter to zero at the petrol pump.
  •  
Drive the vehicle till the fuel gauge needle reaches the 'E' Position. Ensure that no petrol has been added in between.
  •  
Repeat steps 1~4 again.
  •  
Read the petrol quantity from the pump.
  •  
Read the mileage from the trip meter.
  •  
Calculate the fuel consumption. (Trip meter mileage - Petrol quantity)
  •  
After calculating the fuel consumption, once again initialize the trip meter to zero.
  •  
Repeat the above procedure at least 5~6 times.
  •  
Calculate the average fuel consumption.
