Fuel consumption 2003

Name:Fred
Location:Kenya, Nairobi Area, Nairobi
Vehicle:Toyota VOXY
Year:2003
General comments:Please advise
Problems:The car is consuming crazy amounts of fuel; 4.5litres per kilometre on urban roads and 5.5litres per KM on highway. I have done the service; including flushing the engine and changing plugs, checked that there is no leaking in the exhaust pipe. What could be the problem? Please advise. No mechanic problems being displayed........though at times it shows the engine light but then disappears as soon.
Previous car:Toy 110

aways drive this automatic cars in overdrive mode, avoid too much reveing of the engine,always alternate overdrive mode and non overdrive modes at the correct times..sevice the vehicle with the correct engine oil and correct plugs,correct engine timing is important,always have computorized diagnosting technics....do you know that this vvti gasoline vehicles are suporsed to use regular fuel?...its obvious that 99% of kenyans always use supper that regular...regualar is cheaper,,burns slowly and thus drives longer and the performance of the vehicle is still the same like when supper is used....always used balanced wheels with balanced presures and correct alighnment..

check cause of check light first
ensure you have the correct plugs assuming you have 2ZR engine sr20hr11 is correct plugs(subject to dealer advice)
ensure clean air cleaner
ensure u take fuel from registered service station
*this vehicle is sensitive to plugs and fuel type
the rest observe driving habit

i used to have a similar problem with my 2003 voxy.
to control your consumption, just ensure that you are soft on your accerelator pedal. dont let the "eco" light on your dashboard to go off. it usually goes off when you are hard on your pedal. secondly use regular fuel. its heavier and burns slowly.
the rest is obvious tha t the car must be in good shape.

you can try to reset the onboard computer by taking of the battery terminals,turn on the lights and simulate starting the engine. this will use all the available power stored everywhere in the electronics system.
now you can put the terminals back on an try to see if there is a difference.
another option may be replacing the airflow sensor also, should be mounted somewhere along the air the intake.(air filter case or beyond)

I recently bought a toyota Voxy, and it's surely let me down by what i may call over consumption.6km per 1litre of petrol.By virtue of being a mechanic i have a feeling that i have exhausted all mechanical diagnosis which maybe would lead to this vice. Tirelessly having done all this, i should say there has been no improvement. Engine is 1AZ. Please advice.
