    To be honest i cant think of much that will make a big difference

    Unless you convert to gas...lol

    If you have had it serviced air filter will be clean so the engine will be breathing easier .........

    does the car run rich does it smell of petrol allot?

    car never overheats or loses water or oil but the on board sensors say it need water but goes off after a little bit and water is full seems to have a glitch in that way brake sensor is always on

    Brake sensor is norm as they have sensors on the pads and if you replace without using Orginal they dont and you cross the wires sometimes that does not work and you get the sensor showing on the dash would not worry about that unless you hear grating when braking
