  • If the fuel economy dropped suddenly, then you have some kind of setting issue, or spark timing or a valve problem - easily adjustable. If it dropped over a lengthy period of time, it is likely you have lost some compression. Tough to tell without testing out the car, but for an authorized mechanic, should be an easy job.

  • Dear Friend,
    Check if there is engine oil consumption and whether you require to top up the engine oil regularly. If yes then its time to overhaul the engine and replace with new set of pistons, rings and cylinder bore enlargement. A good functioning Esyeem engine should give not less than 14 km/lts in petrol and no less than 17 kms/ltr in gas.
