Hi my name is***** am a diagnostic technician and look forward to working with you.

Can you tell me if your ix35 is Petrol or diesel, and is it front wheel drive or the four wheel drive model as both will effect tank size and fuel consumption figures.

Thanks, Ross.

Thanks Ross. This means if i travel about 35km per day (building in traffic stops), then a full tank should last me roughly two weeks. However, my car barely takes me one week.
1. what could be the possible causes
2. what can i do to get the ideal situation above
3. are there 'gadgets' that could monitor my fuel capacity and consumption?
