Sound Upgrades

Had a sub installed.
12" Infinity Reference Sub w/ ported box.

Gives me nice bass, no more rattling sound from my doors.

Thanks to my Head Unit's HPF and Rear Sub Out function.




Happy.

I just achieved my record Fuel Consumption with Wally

Share ko lang...

Pagkagaling ng Alabang kanina mga 11 PM, I finally had the chance to drive far (Tagaytay lang) at maihataw naman si Wally.

I noticed na almost 7 liters pala ang difference ng full tank na automatic stop as compared sa filled to the brim. So I tried filling my car to the brim and had my tires inflated to 31 front and 33 back. Reset my Trip Meter then off I go.

2 lang kami ng GF punta tagaytay... walang traffic, halos 5th gear ako most of the time kahit dun sa mga paakyat, except pag yung mga palikong delikado, downshift ako 1 gear. Yung byahe sa SLEX pinaabot ko lang hanggang 90 para di naman nakapako sa 70 coz I'm really trying to aim for a good FC since it's purely highway driving.

Some info:
- 2007 Hyundai Getz 1.1 M/T
- Top speed 90kp/h , 70-75 km/h most of the time paakyat
- Pababa, minsan I don't even step on the gas but If I do, I still maintain 70-75 km/h
- Change gear at 1900-2000 rpm
- no stop overs along the way
- Route is Alabang to Tagaytay (hanggang Casino) then pauwi is Tagaytay to Pasay. SLEX until Bicutan only since sa Villamor ihahatid ko, had to take the service road.
- purely highway driving except nung papagas na ako pauwi e 1 km from the gas station (Shell Sun Valley) may eng-eng na lasing na taxi driver na binangga yung pagitan ng SLEX and service road wasak na wasak so walang madaanan and I had to idle for 5-10 mins at 5 am!!!
- ODO at 2100 KM

Nagpagas ako ulit ng pauwi na, filled to the brim to be as accurate as I could be.

Results...
