Scotty Torrens ASKED THE GUIDE

Getz excessive fuel use

With an 50-50 average of short and long runs, my 2010 Hyundai Getz 1.4-litre auto uses in excess of 12L/100km. I don’t think this is normal. Can it be fixed?

You are right, it is far too high for that car. Going by Hyundai’s official figures you should be getting between 5.5 and 9.5L/100km depending on the mix of driving you’re doing. I would be making sure all is well with the engine and the electronics that control it, and check the exhaust to make sure it’s not blocked.
