Hi everyone!!. I am a new member.

I have a Clio 1.2 16v, and it spends a lot of fuel.

Why??

It has a small motor.

How much is "a lot of fuel"? Give us a number like 'miles per gallon' or 'km per liter'. Maybe it burns much and maybe not. How can we tell?

It's a small engine, but if you are climbing hills and mountains in the lower gears at near wide open throttle, its fuel mileage will suffer.

I think they're supposed to use high octane fuel.

A lot of fuel for me is 9L per 100km.
What do you think??
I only do city driving if it can help

In zeece coontree thats 26.13 miles per gallon. My Lemonzine weighs 5200 pounds unloaded (2359 Kg) and gets 22.1 miles per gallon (10.64 L/100km) around town with an automatic transmission. It has a big motor.

That's pretty poor mileage on a car that should be getting around 40 mpg (6L/100Km) just based on class averages.

City driving gets low mileage because you're almost always accelerating and then stopping and then accelerating and then stopping. If you're driving a short distance, parking the car, and then coming back after a while, you're also starting the car "cold" quite often, which also isn't good for fuel mileage. Finally, you don't say if this is a new Clio, but some tires have high rolling resistance -- it takes a fair amount of energy just to get them to roll. Your Clio probably does not have high-performance tires, but the tires may be cheap and may not have very low rolling resistance. That can cost you a liter or two per 100 Km as well.
