Small car, big guzzler

MY wife owns a 1999 Kancil 850EZ (A) that she uses mainly for urban driving. Our problem is its high fuel consumption. The vehicle manages approximately 8km per litre of petrol. With a 30-litre fuel tank, this translates to approximately 240km per tank of fuel. On the other hand, my 1995 Proton Wira seems to consume fuel more economically. I have read your articles on fuel leakage and wonder if this the case, although my mechanic says not. Kindly advise.
