Nissan Pulsar 1999: Can I use E10?

Answered by CarsGuide 5 Oct 2010

Nissan says only models post 2004 can run E10, which isn’t a lot of help for owners of older models like yours. The 1999 Pulsar hatch has multi-point fuel injection, so there’s little chance of you having a problem with E10. If you were concerned about the effects of E10 you could run premium unleaded.

Nissan Pulsar 1999: Fuel consumption

Answered by CarsGuide 7 Sep 2010

When new Nissan claimed the 1.6-litre would do around 8.0 L/100 km and the 2.0-litre around 9.0 L/100 km, so the fuel consumption of your car is a little higher than it should be based on those numbers. But you have to consider your driving conditions, the terrain, the condition of the car, and the fact that the engine is now worn. Check the fuel and ignition systems to make sure all is well with them, I would also check the compression and make sure it’s on the mark as well.

Nissan Pulsar 1999: What are the servicing intervals?

Answered by CarsGuide 16 Oct 2003

I would recommend sticking to the six-month service interval even if you aren't doing a lot of miles. If you really want to extend the periods to save some money I wouldn't go beyond 12 months. A well-serviced car typically is a more reliable car.
