Cars Q&A

I have a 2006 Honda GXI CVT. The vehicle has run for 43000 kms. How can the fuel consumption of the vehicle be improved? Can anyone suggest quality additives?

Mileage can be improved slightly with usage of additives like 3M etc.Recommended to use Shell petrol as it has good combination of additives and best in quality.Also following regular fuel savings tips like switching off during long idling etc does help.

Adding 3% Pure Acetone will boost the mileage by 35%. Acetone reduces the surface tension of octane(constituent of petrol) and thus combustion becomes cleaner and more efficient with 0 harm to the engine. Tried this on my old activa too. It was giving about 35 kmpl. After adding about 15 ml of acetone in a full tank, it returned 50 kmpl.
