I have a Peugeot 206 type 2(1365cc - 8 valve). It uses 7 liters per 100km in city and 10 liters per 100km in highway! What is the problem?

Are you sure those figures are right? I would expect it to be 10 liters per 100km in the city (10km per liter) and 7 liters per 100km on the highway (14.5 km per liter). City driving is always heavier than highway driving. –  Juann Strauss Jun 13 '14 at 7:31
And we'll need some more information as to your problem, as this is question is way too broad as written. What have you done to remedy the problem? –  Paulster2 Jun 13 '14 at 9:48
Yes I'm sure about my text and its numbers. I'm excited with my car! Also I clean all of injection systems. Does it relate to fuel quality? I live in Iran –  Babak.Abad Jun 13 '14 at 14:33
33.52 mpg city and 23.48 mpg highway for us Americans. Yes, agreeing with @JuannStrauss that this is strange. Your city mileage I would put into the great range, highway not so good. All of this may be dependent upon how you drive your vehicle on the highway. If it is not going into overdrive when you get on the highway and you are running it at 5000 rpm for great distances, I could possibly see this happening. Otherwise, I would say I don't really know. –  Paulster2 Jun 14 '14 at 17:07
I don't think an 8 valve 4-cylinder would even give close to 14.5 km pet liter in town. My Opel Corsa is pretty similar to the 206 and it never does more than 11.5 in town. The main problem being that a single cam 8 valve engine is quite heavy on the juice and the close ratio gearbox in the 206 doesn't help much either. –  Juann Strauss Jun 15 '14 at 18:07
