    What is the maximum capacity (fuel tank in litres) of a Proton Iswara 1.3 A/B made in 2005? I pumped RM62.61 for the first time. Is the fuel tank really bigger than Proton Wira?

    about 45 liters, that's the standard capacity of wira so yeah it's bigger but I sometimes able to fill it more of course since 45 is just standards.

    Then yr Satria can go 12.1KM/L which is not very good, my friend. City or highway? A lot of bumper to bumper or just smooth ride? My Saga Aeroback 1.5 Automatic manage to get 12.7KM/L on 60% highway and the rest is smooth city ride.

    I use KM/L coz it wont get affected by fuel price and still applicable when someone else read this in few years time. So to say my 50 ringgit can go how many KM is not very accurate. To get a more accurate measurement, use the station pump. Better to use back the same pump each time and pump full, then reset yr meter and begin yr journey. Next round go back to the same pump and fill the tank full again, note down the litres filled and also the mileage traveled. Say u need to pump 40 litres to get it full again and yr car meter shows 450KM then u press yr calculator 450 devide by 40 = 11.25KM/L.

    Knowing yr tank capacity also good coz say yr car red light comes due to low fuel and u start to panic and start looking for petrol station and it happens that area wont have a station in another 50KM and u may think that you are in deep shit but what if you are able to tell how much fuel is left and how much further you could travel? That is possible when you know yr tank capacity and yr car's FC which is around 11.25km/L (for the example above). Ok, here is how, say yr tank capacity is 45L, go pump full and travel till the low fuel light comes on and directly go fill up full again. If say u need to fill 35L to get it full, meaning fuel left during low fuel light comes on is 10L left. Now do the maths, 10L multiply 11.25 for each litre you get approximately 110KM. To squeeze the figure further, off the aircond and be soft with the pedal and relex, cheers :)

    maybe mine not so fuel efficient considering its year 95 car with more than 200k on odo.... :adore: but 1.3/1.5 saga iswara should get better mileage i think (assuming engine and carb/injector tuned correctly)


    320 with b2b peak morning/evening driving with A/C on.....

    350 if smooth traffic (non peak hour)...

    if highways maintain speed lower than 110km/h should be far better..but me sleepy if drive slow on highways... :sleep:

    yep..thats why i stated the fuel amount that get pumped with RM50 notes..btw...i always calculate km/liter first just like u do but some ppl hard to digest numbers...so i somplified.... :biggrin:

    and my car was auto...


    well....my rule of thumb it is safe to say that average proton cars (waja,wira,satria,iswara,saga range) when warning light lit..then we got atleast 40km to squeeze from whatever amount left in the tank... :adore:



    p/s:some petrol station gives u 26.32liter of fuel...and some only gives u 26.31liter for RM50.... :listen:

    The only way is don't pump till full, My iswara empty to full is rm 70, but I always pump rm 50 only. If you pump till full some oil will go back to the petrol kiosk (albeit a small amount)
