    Mali pala yung ginawa ko hahahaha. I pressed the ignition button twice (equivalent of ON mode sa susi), then gradually stepped on the accelerator hanggang dulo. Then stinart ko yung makina.

    I did this 4 times - pag-alis kong bahay, pag-alis ko ng Ateneo, pag-alis ko ng Gilmore, atsaka pag-alis ko sa tindahan pagkatapos bumili ng tasty. Akala ko ganun yung 4x na sinasabi haha natangahan naman ako sa sarili ko

    Ulitin ko nalang mamaya pag umalis uli ako haha.

    I re-tried the suggested accelerator calibration using the same technique renzo did. Hindi ko alam kung placebo effect or mas binabantayan ko yung paa ko, pero mas nacocontrol ko yung throttle, no more sudden surges from 1st gear. Kung may effect man sa Altis, sobrang minimal lang siguro.

    And maybe the fact that the car is an automatic limits the amount of throttle control I get since computer-controlled pa rin yung clutch.

    Response on mine through the first half of the pedal is also slower but it's not much of a problem as my car is a manual so working the gears keeps me at a good pace. Toyota tunes it this way to favor economy. In the old days, tightening the throttle cable would cure that. :D

    Update on FC. 80% city driving, 20% highway (running 110-130kph). 11.42km/L; loaded up at Petron Clark... P 47.75/L

    I was feeling a bit sluggish on the car the past week and when i checked tire pressure, i was down to 31/30psi. I aired up to my usual 34psi on all four wheels and the car ran the way i prefer it to (a little lighter with more road feel).

    My FC is now down to 6.9-7 km/L, from 7.3-7.4 km/L previously. I can attest it to the driving conditions, since my average speed fell from 17 km/h to 15 km/h, says the MID.

    I'm thinking of an ECU reset just to see if it makes any difference. Good or bad idea?

    If you're due for a change oil, tune-up anytime soon, try doing your ECU reset along with that. Try cleaning also your MAF sensor with some electric contact cleaner or carb cleaner.

    Yes it has voice control when dialing (assuming you've setup contacts already). You can refer to the manual for instructions on how to do this.

    after more than a year of usage, this feature I still don't know how to use... can't understand the feature from the manual.


    I switched fuels from Unleaded to the Premium(now V-Power), XCS, Gold equivalent. Power seemed to improve especially during inclines and rolling from a standstill.

    kakalito nga 'tong Shell - yung Super Premium nila ginawang V-Power, yung V-Power dinagdagan ng Nitro+ Racing sa variant name... ano ba yan meant to confuse consumers?! hehe, wala na bang mas catchy name?!

    reminds me of McDo's new Big n Tasty burger, the name itself describes the product... could use a better product name.
