Your logic is way off. You should change your oil and filter at the manufacturers recommended intervals, with an oil of the manufacturers specification. The manufacturers cover many many miles under many differant conditions to decide a specification and in most circumstances the specification cannot be bettered for the intended use of the vehicle.

Pros: Ride quality, features, 6 airbags, compact. Versatile cabin Cons: Soft steering, engine noise above 4000rpm, roll around corners, turbo lag under 2000rpm, rear seat space.

In a word: No. To add more to it: Absolutely Not. There is one huge thing which you have not taken into account. That being carbon which deposits from the air/fuel mixture burning process.

Engines take about a 1000 miles to break in (unless you do some specific break-in procedures). Once the engine is broke-in, you can expect better mileage from the engine. Things are a little tighter right after rebuild than ...

You might expect about 19.6 km/l (all things perfect, maximum efficiency), but 14.5 km/l highway to 11.5 km/l (city) is realistic if fuel/ignition/engine are in excellent condition and the tires are correctly inflated; those numbers are original factory spec. There are physical limits to the efficiency one might expect from any given car due to weight, wind ...
