Have you adjusted that to allow for the odometer reading lower?

Some Suzukis and a bunch of motorcycles.

Hi I’ve got a 2003 Jimny with the m13a engine and 19k miles on the clock I filled the tank the other day and I got 180 miles out of it before it was empty I was wondering why my fuel consumption could be so bad and also it gets better mileage with the air filter out but it’s pretty clean and other than that the car is completely stock anyone have any ideas thank you

If it's a standard car then it needs a full service and an Italian tune up aka a good long thrashing on a motorway run.I periodically do this to both mine and even the auto gets well over 250 miles on a tank of fuel.

It's not a Jimny. It's my Jimny

I was suffering from high fuel consumption, then after checking everything found that a front caliper was sticking. Changed the caliper and consumption has gone from 85 miles on £20 worth to 110 miles on £20 worth
Could be worth checking on yours :)

was a 2003 model with bigger tyres, now a 2008 vvt , also with bigger tyres now, k&n panel filter

What would that be in mpg?

Do it right - use Hammerite
