    When was the fuel filter replaced last? This may be a case of bad fuel filter. I faced this issue and after the fuel filter replacement, the car was back to normal.

    The mileage which you presently get indicates peak traffic driving while the earlier was I guess in somewhat non peak traffic times.

    Had you recently gone into dusty environment?

    Is using hydraulic jack safe ( Bottle types specifically )

    Hello Everyone.

    Just wondering if buying a Hydraulic jack ( Bottle type) are safe to use . If they are really convenient too?

    Because the the top of the jack on which we need to rest the car seems very very small in area.

    Would it make it difficult to place it spot on the designated jacking point under the car.

    Appears to be very unstable and ready to topple at any instant.

    Kindly suggest if anyone has had some experience with these jacks

    Normal Hydraulic jack,non bottle one,is a much better and convenient option.

    I found the the regular Jack, that comes with our cars, as appropriate and convenient to use. It is quite light and has appropriate space provided in our car's dicky.

    OT : my uncle (neighbor) who served in army and in his 70's now related the below : he used to own FIAT 1100 back in early 80's and he sold it after long use and went for M800. He retained his FIAT's jack and still has it with him... He swears by its quality of lift and once he helped a matador van on a highway to replace its flat tyre with this jack , off course by placing some stones and wood planks to provide proper reach. As per him screw lift is efficient and dependable as against hydraulic ones and he has driven army trucks and jeeps all his life and has used various special purpose jacks as well.
