Nowadays the fuel energy is consumed more than it was used in the past and most of energy used comes from petroleum which is not reusable. Moreover, the crude oil which is raw material to be refined is likely to take place in nature; it usually takes a long time. Therefore, this natural resource must be used efficiently to maximize its benefits. Construction of Econo Power Car will be one of many methods to decrease the energy consumption. The objective of research aims to influence parameter effecting to the fuel consumption such as engine system, transmission system suspension system and fuel injection system. Furthermore, the Econo Power Car is estimated to cooperate with 11th Honda Econo Power. To achieve this, the effects of fuel consumption parameters are investigated using experiments. For the suspension system, the wheel resistance and the rolling resistance are decreased by wheel angle modification and changing the wheel bearing. Moreover, the engine is adjusted by the fuel injector addition. For the economical experiment in the 11th Honda Econo Power, the By Part Team (RMUTP Team) has the consumption 843.443 kilometer/liter and within 4th order from 347 teams by the invent higher education of competition and type of 125cc. The winner team has the economize statistics 999.746 kilometer/liter. As a result, influence parameters of fuel consumption are wheel resistance and engine system which is good knowledge for the development of the Econo Power Car in the future.
