Toyota Estima

Hi People

My dad is interested to get a Toyota Estima and would like to find out what Octane petrol is suitable, Can i use 95 such as Shell 95 or Esso 2000?
Also, can i know is there any difference between Shell and Esso petrol?

Also, just to side track a little, wana gain some knowledge, can i know what are the causes for high frequency of petrol top-up? Isit mainly due to "heavy-footer" or engine problem?

Re: Toyota Estima

should be 95 most cars runs on 95 except civic hybrid runs on 92.... for toyota hybrid i nt sure.... if 95 or 92....

esso n shell to mi is just brand diff..... some ppl say hv better fc on shell.... for mi i using esso cos the convience of speed pass....

fuel consumption depends on a lot of tings... heavy footer defianlly drink more petrol.... bt comparing car to car wise... engine type n capacity also takes a diff.... u dont expect performance engine to hv fantastic fc rite....

wan power bo fc.... wan fc bo power..... tat always the case..... in very expensive cars.... it will be a balance between both.....

hi there~

i'm no chemist but from what i understand.. the RON number is a kind of standard adopted by countries, there is also another standard called MON number which shows a lower number for the same standard and is used in the US. so by right, petrol with RON95 should be the same throughout, although variations in additives between brands might occur. (unless the brands come from the same refinery or something). If the car doesn't require 98, pumping that or anything higher would just be a waste. (it doesn't 'clean' your engine or anything.)

so yup you can use any 95 petrol out there. the rest is just a preference of brands, kinda like comparing coke to pepsi. i liked shell, but recently found out by chance that caltex gives slightly better mileage (whether coincidence or not i don't know), anyway i can use coupons so i save some $$.

depends on the severity of the FC drop. If its a drastic change with the same driving habits, then you can start suspecting something's wrong with the engine/fuel syst.

If u mean ways on improving the current FC.. some of the ways include keeping the weight down by removing unnecessary stuff in the boot, check your tyre pressures regularly, keep your car stock, use the aircon only when needed, and the most important would be anticipating traffic conditions.

Re: Toyota Estima

we can't really see the difference in singapore cos most of the drivings are city driving.. however, i've changed from shell to caltex recently as caltex dropped the price of their platinum to their gold price, while gold 98 is not available anymore. previously platinum is their premium grade, and is more expensive than v power.. now it's the same price as spc's 98, shell's 98 is slightly lower.. but shell only gives 9.75% discount for credit card holders, while i have 12% discount for caltex.. so i went to caltex=) but if u ask me.. both roughly the same.. caltex's platinum slightly more powerful tho..

Re: Toyota Estima

MPV and SUV are what i'll call drinkers, usually averaging about 9km/L +/-

For dirving to get better FC, do a search and you'll find more information, of course not in this forum

But i''ll list some common ones for your benefit

1) Tyre Pressure
2) Well maintained car, especially engine.
3) Driving style (hw u accelerate, rolling to a stop to traffic light is good provided you're not obstructing traffic as it takes less fuel to move a rolling car compared to a completely stopped one)
4) AC
5) Plan your driving route. Enter a jam that's it.
6) Optimum crusiing is for most cars to do ard 90km/h
7) Weight (unnecessary stuff in the boot? Always ferrying ppl?, etc)

That's just the tip of the iceberg.

Re: Toyota Estima

Hi, I'm a Singaporean stationed in Thailand.

I'm deciding to ditch my leased estima to purchase a new estima in Thailand. The estima I'm wanting to get is the hybrid 2.4 imported version. Trouble is, the manual is in Japanese, even the car panel is in Japanese. Does anyone know where I can get an English one...
