    I think it's the 1ZZ-FE (1.6 - 1.8) for the new one. Very fuel efficient, even in AT, but not exactly Jazz territory...

    So does this mean the diesel in Philippines is dirtier than in US, since it is cheaper than gasoline?

    Saving on fuel but spending more money and time on health problems, cleaning things exposed to the air, and dying earlier?

    Sadly. Our diesel isn't comparable to the ultra-low sulfur diesel of Europe.

    Our emissions regulations are pathetic, considering it's easy to cheat on the tests... but even if you don't cheat, it's amazing what passes here. I still don't believe that our smoke-belching Isuzu Crosswind actually passes emissions (but it does).

    If you want to die early? I think the best place to go is Beijing or Mexico... but Manila is getting there...

    :lol: Too true. Maybe we'll catch up with Beijing in terms of road accidents too. In just the few years they've had cars, they've surpassed us completely...

    I wonder what years those cars are? What speeds were done for city and what speeds for highway driving?

    The Fit only has 1.5L engines here in the US (we testdrove one, ok rin siya).

    1. Honda Insight, 60/66
    2. Toyota Prius, 60/55
    3. Honda Civic GX (natural gas), 28/39
    4. Toyota Camry Hybrid, 40/38
    5. Toyota Yaris hatch/sedan, 34/40
    6. VW New Beetle diesel, 37/44
    7. Toyota Corolla, 32/41
    8. Honda Fit, 33/38
    9. VW Jetta diesel, 36/41
    10. Ford Escape Hybrid and scion xA, 32/37

    The ones marked in bold have either a hybrid/gas-electric system. Some diesels of back then, like a member posted, can still get better fuel mileage than those.

    Bakit top 3 yung natural gas Civic? Siya na yata pinakamababang city MPG and 3rd lowest highway MPG.

    If the sulfur is US diesel is 15 ppm, I wonder what it is in Philippines.
