The time is long gone when a car in a family was considered a luxury item. Many people have to travel many kilometers to their workplace, so a car becomes a necessary thing in the family. A large number of car owners use domestically produced cars. Among them, one of the popular ones is the VAZ 2110, which replaced the beloved VAZ “classic”.

When planning to purchase this car for personal use, the potential buyer is interested in the “appetite” of this car. According to test data, the average fuel consumption of the VAZ 2110 ranges from 5.5 to 10 liters per hundred kilometers. These indicators depend on many factors and may change in one direction or another, so they should serve as a guide for VAZ 2110 car owners.

## Fuel consumption at idle speed of VAZ 2114. Reducing fuel consumption. Everything is on the surface

Has anyone noticed that efficiency races are held on special streamlined cars with impeccable aerodynamics and almost bicycle wheels? It’s in vain, but this is almost half the success if we want to achieve low fuel consumption.

For now, let’s not dive into the technical jungle, but simply try to do an easy technical inspection of the car. Go.

- Rolling resistance. Even if you leave the engine alone for now and see how well the car coasts, then you can achieve a reduction in gasoline consumption by at least 15-20%. It’s easy to say, since a good rolling performance can be ensured not only by branded tires, but also by their correct size. And here there is a dissonance between a beautiful appearance and effective fuel consumption. The narrower the tire, the lower its rolling resistance, and accordingly, the lower the fuel consumption. Apart from wheel width, tire pressure can play a huge role. Reduced tire pressure will increase fuel consumption by at least the same 15%. Poorly adjusted or unlubricated, worn wheel bearings, and faulty CV joints may be involved in poor rolling.

Low tire pressure increases fuel consumption

Aerodynamics. In general, there are simply no small details in this case. Compared to the VAZ 2109, the aerodynamics of two thousand one hundred fourteen are head and shoulders above and VAZ specialists spent more than one day in wind tunnels until they achieved this figure. The nine has Cx = 0.463, while the VAZ-2114 has Cx = 0.445. God knows that, although the VAZ-2110 has the best characteristics in this regard from 0.33 to 0.35. For comparison, the drag coefficient of the VAZ-2107 is an elephant-like 0.55. It's in stock. And if a tuning enthusiast comes across a beautiful plastic body kit, then Cx can grow (in proportion to the frontal area) by 4-15%! Naturally, fuel consumption will also increase, not to mention the change in pressing force along the axes, a decrease in top speed and deterioration in maneuverability. Here is a common example: an ordinary safe fly swatter (hood deflector) for a VAZ-2114 increases resistance by 3%, and window deflectors by another 1.2%. Here's some trivia for you.

## How to reduce fuel consumption on a VAZ 2110 injector

Average fuel consumption:

Gasoline (AI-92): 9.25 l/100 km Gasoline (AI-95): 9.32 l/100 km Gasoline (AI-95) Premium: 6.50 l/100 km Gasoline (AI-98): 7.60 l/100 km Gas propane butane: 9.67 l/100km

### Elevated

You should measure the compression in the cylinders. When compression decreases, engine power decreases and in order to achieve the dynamics we are accustomed to we have to press harder on the trigger, and hence increased consumption. Reasons for decreased compression: wear of the cylinder-piston group, leaky fit of the valves to the seats, coking of the piston rings. If in the first two cases you can’t do without opening and repairing the engine, then in the third case, at the early stage of coking of the piston rings, you can use a decoking agent, for example “LAVR-anticoke”. The MAF (mass mass sensor) can also tell you about the condition of the piston group air flow) on an injection engine, provided that it is in good condition. It is enough to connect the computer and compare the current readings of the sensor with the readings that should be for a specific ECU (electronic engine control unit), for example: ECU January 4.1 at an engine speed of 750-850 should consume air 7-8 kg/hour, if the values are lower, then this can already indicate wear of the cylinder-piston group; the lower the reading, the greater the wear.

## How to determine consumption and cause

If you are starting to worry about the high fuel consumption of a given car, you can do some light research on your own. To do this, at a regular gas station, the tank is filled, as they say, to the cutoff. Fill a canister separately, for example, a 20-liter canister and add gasoline from it to the full neck of the tank. After which the Lada drives one hundred km, preferably at approximately the same speed, in order to find out how much the car consumes in a particular cycle. Now we pour the remaining gasoline from the canister into a measuring container and again into the neck of the tank until it stops. All that remains is to calculate how much fuel is left in the measuring container and find out how much we have used over a hundred kilometers.

In all cases, if a VAZ twenty-one thousand one hundred two car begins to consume a lot of gasoline, it is necessary to first find the cause, and only then move on to treatment. In the case where the owner lives in a rural area and the vehicle is operated there, in principle it is not worth relying on low consumption. Off-road driving is associated with increased loads on the engine and chassis, which leads to excessive consumption.

## Traffic congestion is costing vehicle owners a pretty penny

The number of cars on Ukrainian roads is growing. The roads are not always clear, and drivers are often forced to sit in traffic jams for a long time. According to some estimates, this takes forty days or about three hundred and thirty hours a year.

Capital enterprises that have commercial vehicles lose about thirty-seven hryvnia per hour or more than one kopeck per second per hour of downtime. A passenger car consumes about one liter of gasoline per hour of free travel. (with an engine capacity of 1.5 liters), in a traffic jam its consumption increases by approximately three liters. Depreciation of a car for an hour costs about twelve hryvnia.

Also, during downtime, the driver loses part of his own wages. The average salary in Ukraine, according to official data, is two thousand four hundred fifty hryvnia. Let's do a little calculation. Because in a month of twenty-two working days, any of which lasts eight hours, then the wage for one hour is thirteen hryvnia thirty-five kopecks. This is another item of loss for the motorist or the company that pays for the car.

According to reports from the Ukrainian traffic police, emergency situations often occur in traffic jams, and they imply the imposition of a fine on the perpetrator of the violation. The usual one has a bad effect on the health of car owners. While waiting, they all inhale exhaust fumes, which can cause acquired bronchitis, allergies or lung disease. Such diseases can develop within 2-5 years. Persons with asthma are advised to choose clearer roads.

If we take into account all of the above, then it is easy to calculate that over the course of a year you will simply lose about twelve thousand hryvnia for an ordinary one on the road. By giving up a car, you can save this amount and spend it, for example, on the purchase of 2 sports bicycles or a moped. The health benefits and money savings from using them will not cause any hesitation. If you choose the metro as your means of transportation, then these funds will be enough to travel for ten years.

Naturally, this is not advice for an enterprise. It is recommended to use a fuel control system. This will help avoid traffic jams and prevent drivers from cheating with fuel.

## Reliable information about fuel consumption of the VAZ 2114. Fuel consumption of the VAZ 2114

Greetings, dear friends! Gone are the years when you could fill up almost a full tank of gasoline with fifty rubles. Those of you who can even vaguely remember that time know what I mean. Agree, not many people were concerned about the fuel consumption of their own vehicles, but what they could afford for themselves. Now, in the 21st century, we have a completely different situation; the global crisis forces us to save money, not just on gasoline, but even on loaves. So the modern driver has to carefully look at all the mechanisms that in one way or another affect the final figure of gasoline spent. Moreover, this factor has become one of the main ones when buying a car. And that’s why many car owners with average incomes choose the Russian fourteenth model Zhiguli. The fuel consumption of VAZ two thousand one hundred fourteen does not differ in super-minimum figures, and the figure does not exceed the bar set many years ago by AvtoVAZ.

But if certain units fail, the factory standard may increase significantly. Naturally, for a timely response, it is necessary to know not only the declared consumption, but also the real one, because they may differ slightly from each other. I propose to fill this gap by reading the article to the end, and I also have some tips for you on how to reduce gasoline consumption. But first things first.

The smallest engine in the VAZ 2110 was a 1.5 liter unit, which, depending on the number of valves, could produce different power. So, the simplest version, where the fuel was supplied by a carburetor and where there were 8 valves, could produce 73 horsepower. The version with an injector and 16 valves already developed 94 horsepower. Fuel consumption per 100 km for such an engine varied from 7 to 7.5 liters.

Following it was a version with a volume of 1.6 liters. The engine, which had an injector and 8 valves, produced 81 horsepower. The sixteen-valve engine developed up to 90 hp. Here the consumption reached 7.2 liters. The most powerful and largest engine was the 2.0 liter unit. Its power was 150 horsepower, and it consumed 11 liters of fuel in the city and 7 on the highway. All engine configurations were paired with a five-speed manual transmission.

## High fuel consumption of the injection VAZ 2110

If we apply simple arithmetic and the mode of normal use of the car, we will get the following situation: Consumption in the city in summer is permissible 11 liters per 100 km, the trip from home to work is permissible 7 km. In winter, let's say warming up for 15 minutes and the same trip on a warm engine, while warming up the engine, let's take a consumption of 1.2 liters per hour, a total of 300 ml of gasoline will burn in 15 minutes, for a trip we get a consumption of 770 ml per 7 kilometers, total total fuel consumption will be 1.070 ml with the same mileage of 7 km, and this is no longer 11 liters, but 15.2 per 100 kilometers. If you change the data and warm up longer, or make a shorter trip, then the results will change. Then there are several other options with the same data, city consumption in the summer is 11 liters, fuel consumption when warming up is 1.2 liters (in fact, it can be even more, because 1.2 liters are usually already on a warm engine at idle) Warm up 15 minutes, travel 4 km, total winter consumption 18.5 liters per 100 km Warm up 30 minutes, travel 20 km, total winter consumption 14 liters per 100 km

As the mileage increases, of course, the difference with summer consumption decreases... So everything is clear about the old man, but with your mileage of 100 km a day, of course, such consumption in winter, without taking into account traffic jams, should not exist.

Of course, another 11 liters in the city if you don’t take into account traffic jams. If we take into account traffic jams and the time spent standing in them, then the consumption can easily even without warming up can approach 20 liters, let’s say a trip of 7 kilometers, a total time of 45 minutes... With a normal travel time of about 15 minutes without any traffic jams, we have 30 minutes of engine idling, using the same calculation (7 km trip with a consumption of 11 liters 770 ml of gasoline, 30 minutes of warming up at 1.2 liters per hour 600 ml of gasoline) we get a consumption of 19.5 liters per 100 km. It's simple.

I noticed a change in consumption depending on what time I leave home. If I leave at 7:15, then I arrive at work at 7:35, the journey takes 20 minutes, I arrive early, it seems like I could sleep, but if I leave at 7:25, then the journey no longer takes 20 minutes, but 35 .and I arrive tick by tick at 8:00, the option when being late is not acceptable. The consumption is as follows: Departure at 7:15 - 2 minutes of warming up on the spot, 5 minutes in traffic jams, a total of 7 minutes of idling and 7 km of travel at 11 liters per 100 km, a total of 13 liters of consumption. Departure at 7:25 - the same 2 minutes of warming up before departure, but already 20 minutes in a traffic jam, and we get an idle time of 22 minutes and a final consumption of 17.3 liters.

The calculation can probably be clarified, perhaps 11 liters in the summer is already taking into account traffic jams a little, you can do the calculation with 10 liters, this will reduce the numbers a little, but by noting the departure time, the travel time, the mileage from a full refueling to the next full refueling, I came to the conclusion that the calculation absolutely fair...
