Default What fuel for your Carry?

No unleaded fuel in our place so I've been using Petron XCS Valvemaster for Zukzuk ever since I acquired him a year and a half ago. I get an average of 15 km/l urban driving and 17km/l highway from using this fuel.

How about you guys? What brand/type of fuel are you feeding your babies?

I use shell premium at the moment kasi naging habit ko na and it is along my route to work. Siya rin yung may mababang price ng gas along E. Rodriguez between araneta avenue and rotonda going to Espana.

Additonal Info: All Japanese vehicles from the 1970's up to the present can use unleaded fuel.

Mang caloy,

Newbie po ako dito (registered this pm), i'm from Cebu & bought my
SCRUM F6A (12V) Rear mounted engine, EFI & Power steering minivan
here in Cebu last March this year.

I'm just curious kasi my officemates here explained about changing their
ordinary (original) 12" rims into 13" mags. Yung makina daw originally is designed for 12" rims so pag ginawa mong 13" plus the weight of mags
(normally heavier than 12") mas mag wo-work harder yung engine resulting to a low mileage.

I'm confused with his explanation & yours. I've read your other thread
about this one, saying that you improved your mileage by shifting to a bigger, wider tires.

Please share me your ideas on this topic.

Thanks.

If you use larger tires, you affect the overall ratio of your gears (lowering the ratio numerically), lowering the engine's speed at the same vehicular speed as compared to smaller diameter tires. It's also true that the engine works harder (as well as the brakes and the suspension) because of the added rotaional mass of the larger wheels. The trick therefore is to find lightweight, larger diameter wheels for you to maximize your ride's fuel economy. Another thing is that when you change your tire diameter, your speedometer readings would be thrown off.

Some surplus japanese wheels are really light but they're kind of hard to find. Silverwinds are ok but me and my friends have had problems with their durability before. Hopefully, they have gotten around to using better alloys for their wheels. I'm currently using Rota wheels 13x6 (bought brand new), Commodore (bought 2nd hand) 13x6, and some no name wheels 13x7 (bought 2nd hand, the ones in the picture in my garage). The lightest among the 3 are the Rotas and the heaviest are the 13x7 wheels. the Commodores are being used for our water delivery pickup and they've been holding up pretty well.

For the fuel mileage question, maybe it could be true but the savings could be negated by the fact that the tires on the 12" wheels have more mass than the 13" tires. Try swapping wheels and tires with your friend for while for you to draw a definitive conclusion and base your decisions there. Glad to be of help.

Thanks for your inputs mang caloy, I plan to have my 4-12" wheels swapped later into mags with additional cost of course. Other option will be to wait 'til the 4 wheels wear down (maybe after 2yrs.) & buy the Rota wheels you suggested or look for Japanese surplus.
