    Tried XCS in my last fill up. Seems to be doing better than Xtra however i've been doing highway driving over the weekend. I'll see for sure in the next two to three tank ups.
    it seems my previous XCS fill was slightly better... now I used Shell's Nitro+ my calculated FC was 9.7 kpl, hehe. oks padin.

    It's a car that's hard to go wrong with really, especially if you look for good comfort and long term ownership. If you want more excitement and driving feel, you may have to look at the Civic or Elantra though.

    cjv_justice, your 9.7km/L was mixed city highway? I just hit my all time low of 8.57km/L during my tank up last week... although i did get into some bad traffic and i was doing some 1st and 2nd gear redline shifts in my Tagaytay run. :D

    hmm that's around 60/40 city/highway combo me thinks. damn these shorts trips really kill your FC.

    thanks in advance for your inputs and advice..
    I have a pearl white car, its not that hard to maintain. I perform weekly washing and monthly waxing. But you have to watch out for the accumulation of dust especially in the edges or corners. It will be very hard to clean by hand with soap, you might need to clean it with cleaner wax. The reason why i maintain a monthly wax is to keep it a little bit slippery so the dirt wont stick too much. Comparing the pearl white with other colors, white is harder to maintain since the 'libag' can easily be seen. Also, asphalt debris can easily be seen against a white background, thus regular cleaning is recommended.

    Also, the sensors in the bumper of the pearl white V are not painted with pearl white, its just white. If you look closely, you'll notice the difference.

    pearl white dapat talaga yung choice ko sa altis
    pero i decided sa silver since it requires the least amount of cleaning
    i park on the outside sa work, so nasa labas ang car from 730am to 5pm pag regular day ko
    then its 730am to 5pm the NEXT DAY sa labas na parking (hospital) pag naka duty ako which is 2 or 3 times a week
    yung road sa subdivision namin, may parts na dirt road sya and it gets muddy pag umuulan
    parang mahihirapan ako na linisin yung pearl white na car lalo na wala kaming weekends off pag duty

    ^Yes, silver is the easiest to maintain. But if it gets bumped or requires panel repainting, its hard to match.

    di ba mas mahirap i-match yung pearl white?
    as mentioned earlier, iba yung kulay ng white sensors sa bumper ng pearl white na car
    maybe yung plain white yung madali i-match
