Dear Friends,

I recently bought one second hand unit, LMST model year 2005 from a car dealer. Condition is good, but the big problem is the terrible FC! For a full tank of RM70 (RON95 at RM1.80/litre current price) I get only about 350km with very very gentle driving mostly in town with little or no traffic jams. I believe this model should give around 450km per tankful based on the kind of driving my son (it's for him to drive to college etc).

I have tried everything I know, like replacing the stupid rear exhaust, changing the rims/tyres to 13" 165", and finally getting the carburettor serviced although I am not if the young mechanic did anything serious work on the carb. I have in mind to get rid of this thing although I will suffer a loss of a few thousand, but my son thinks that we should get a good mechanic to fix it up properly, as he prefers to drive a 'normal sized' car as opposed to a Kancil or a Viva etc.

Can anyone here please help me recommend a competent mechanic? Any suggestions please? Btw, I am in PJ area.

Thank you.

i think u have to retune your carb. Not easy to find an experience tuner for carb. Even proton one they count on modern device.

Agreed , guess you gonna retune then afterall . Your f/c are really bad . by the way , have you check your fuel filter coz a clogged/dirty one will also cause high f/c ,too .

Many reasons affecting the FC. Engine component not maintain well from previous owner also one of the reason.

Thanks for your advice, friends. Looks like I have to find me a good mechanic to tune up my carb - any recommendations for a good mechanic? I have also changed the stupid noisy useless rear muffler to the standard Iswara one which is much quieter.
