    19.35 - 2088 - 18.60 ------ 19.1
    50.46 - 3032 - 18.71 ------ 19.4 *** Almost 1000km on a tank in metro manila
    25.674 - 3555 - 20.37 ----- 20.4

    I'd say that the dashboard reading is pretty accurate to about ~3-5%.

    Unfortunately I cannot find if the car stores my average speed per full tanks.

    My route is las pinas to makati (using skyway) or BGC (slex - C5). I would actually lose a little fuel efficiency going a steady 100km/h then gain it back once I hit slower moving traffic. I admittedly will avoid the brunt of traffic by leaving earlier than usual, but I don't baby it when driving.
    Thank you for this information. Very helpful info. =)

    Regarding the oil, I am also disappointed that CASA does not use 0w16 (I talked with the SA, they do have 0w-xx but use it only for supra / GR Yaris), but 5w30 is recommended in the manual anyway and I am getting fuel economy that more than matches the US EPA (albeit their model is a 4x4), I am happy with it. Also I am thinking that the added cost of the 0w-xx oil probably nullifies fuel further economy savings. I am no oil expert but i think that the next step will be 5w-20 oil when DIY'ing will be the closest to 0w-16 since the 'w' is oil viscosity at really low ambient temps. 5w-20 is also recommended in the manual anyway.
    Good stuff

    I've subscribed to The Car Care Nut in Youtube (ex-Toyota mechanic) and he highly recommends 0w-16 and doing oil changes every six months. My unit is, I would say, low mileage (4600+kms in almost 3 years).

    Sweet!

    My dream wheel setup would be Deltaforce Oval Matte Black paired with 245/65/17 BFG KO2 or Toyo Open Country R/T

    + Eibach Lift springs or Tanabe UP210

    Is there one available locally?

    That lift kit is around $900 I think; the Eibach is at around $350. Problem is, our local off road shops only cater for Jimnys, Hiluxes, Raptors and the like. Not many choices in 5x114.3 "off-road" looking wheels; only 6x139
