Fuel is the mam source of energy in the world and being used widely in powering vehicles by internal combustion process. The used of fuel keep growing day by day and however the source of fuel cannot be renewed. Even though scientists have already introduced alternative renewable energy in placed of fossil fuel, the implementation cost very high capitals investment. Thus car manufacturer are competing to develop highly efficient vehicle that consume lesser fuel than th e previous generation of vehicles. The project undertaken here attempts to minimize engine fuel consumption by implementing engine optimization. These were performed by several tuning process to improved air fuel ratio of the engine, ignition system, and several modification to reduce the engine work load. Furthermore engine is retrofitted with Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI) replacing the usage of carburettor. As a conclusion all the improvement performed on the engine have increase the engine performance and reduce the fuel consumption significantly. The engine maximum torque has increased from 1.5 N.m to 2.1 N.m at 5000 rpm and the engine fuel consumption reduce from reduce and produce a better mileage from 1242.8 mpg to 2662.9 mpg.
