HKS exhaust
Stainless steel air intake
rest all stock

40% expressway

FC currently is very bad, 350km light up. Sometimes even 330!

Previously was not so bad can run 450. since then I have only changed my body kit and engine oil.
changed to idemitsu and now just changed to motul.
Iridium spark plugs.

Pumping esso98.
Normal footer.

Any advice from bros very much appreciated. If more info required just let me know.

Maybe can also gai siao any workshop to assist me.

Thanks everyone!

Bro, drive slowly to warm up your car. Don't idle to warm up. Check your tyre air pressure and observe your fuel mixture, too rich may be

Never attempt to clean your throttle body as they have a protective film applied to it.
With good knowledge of theory is fine, but put it in practical. Cos with good theory and no practical experience, all theory is bull shit!

how you define a normal footer? never exceed 3k/4k/5k rpm? check ur air filter, aircon filter and make sure ur spark plug is the right temp
