SKODA OCTAVIA II KOMBI – a reliable everyday car

Everyone knows what an Octavia is. It’s a brand that is very common on Polish roads. And the Kombi model with a 1.6 FSI engine can be described in a few sentences like this:

“I need a family car – got it. Huge trunk, reliability, driving comfort. I needed a nice car for a reasonable price – got it. I needed a workhorse – got it. I’m satisfied.” (source:

Yes, this car is in many ways perfect for daily use. Without any major sporty thrills, but who needs those when we want a reliable car for everyday driving?


Fuel consumption in the Skoda Octavia 1.6

Fuel reports indicate an average fuel consumption of 7.7 liters of gasoline per 100 km, with some heavy-footed drivers going up to 10 liters of gasoline. It’s a standard result, but definitely “room for improvement” 😉


LPG conversion for FSI engines

ALEX IDEA is an innovative conversion kit designed for transforming cars with direct injection gasoline engines (such as TSI, FSI, TFSI, GDI, T-GDI, EcoBoost, SkyActiv, DISI, JTS, TBI, SIDI, DIG, DIG-T, TCE) to run on gas. This advanced system allows for significant fuel savings. By utilizing special control algorithms, ALEX IDEA only consumes 5 to 15% of gasoline, while other similar installations require as much as 20-30% of gasoline supply. It’s simply the ideal choice for the discussed Skoda engine 😉
