not really.. not unless there is already something wrong causing excessive consumption?

what sort of consumption is it getting??

there are small things that can help but might only make it slightly better..
like removing excess weight, eg, tools, tow neck or anything heavy that's in the car that don't get used..
you can pump tyres up a bit harder for less rolling resitance ect

It consumes 14-15 liters of fuel. Tyre inflation is a good tip. I thought about some modification in the carburetor?

It doesn't have a carby, it's fuel injected.

The biggest single contributing factor to fuel consumption is driver behaviour . Do you drive hard because my EF gets 11.5 litres /100 k

Ups........ :)
I do not know much on it but once I replaced the nozzle with a smaller hole in the carburetor and the car use less fuel.
I have to admit , after the upgrade car has not started too fast. But consumes 25%% less fuel :-)

I dont know what you drive but as SWC said if it has a carbie it is NOT an EF unless someone has removed the injection .
