Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Anyone else getting 94 mpg?
« Last post by John Ratsey on September 23, 2017, 10:20:51 PM »
I was assured by my local dealer (who loaned the 94 mpg Jazz) that it was not specially prepared. However, I reckon they must have waited for warm, dry weather with a strong south-westerly breeze to help the reduce the aerodynamic losses.

My trip last year Swindon - Scotland - Swindon in the Mk 3 Jazz (CVT) was 1483 miles using 107.33 litres = 62.8 mpg (car claimed 68.7 mpg). Predominantly A road driving 50 mph - 60 mph. [For comparison this year's Scotland trip in my HR-V averaged 53.5 mpg under similar conditions.]

Removed the radio and heate and found two bulbs which were totally black.
Replacing them did the job :)

Yes - some good advice - most of which I follow. I need to cut out these 2 mile trips. I agree with Jocko about Motorways especially if you try to maintain a steady 70, that will kill mpg.
So..maintain a steady 60 :)

It probably won't make much difference to the journey time in most cases. I also find that I get out feeling much more relaxed at journey's end.

That's what I thought. A bit irritating but I guess every car has its querks. The gearing is so low that I find I am usually in top gear by the time I reach 30 MPH with no sign of torque issues even on a hill (driver only). Quite a willing little revver and spins out easily with an even power distribution. I sense the motor bike heritage there. I have the gearbox bearings problem to address but it was in the price so no complaints at all. Better the devil you know than the devil you don't. Just have to find someone to do a decent job for a decent price. Probably get the clutch done while its pants are down. Very happy with the car but for some reason it feels a little bit like driving a small mini bus. Combination of reasons. MPG is starting to inch up and hit 49 today. Very low mileage for its age (61,000) so I think it was mainly used as shopping trolley  by the previous owner. It has certainly loosened up after a few trips at the legal limit and blown away a few cobwebs. I am sure the exhaust/valves etc were a bit coked up. A bit of exercise should do the trick.

Unplugging the ICV will probably put the EML light on on the Honda. It certainly won't idle right.

Thatís what happened indeed..
What to do next ?

I find my revs don't always drop entirely between changes. I thought it was only me. I just have to lift my foot right off the throttle. It is as if there is no slack and any pressure on the pedal adds a bit of throttle. It is part of the "drive by wire" set up I suppose.

I find driving on motorway the worst for getting the mpg up. Best figure seems to be achieved around 2,500 rpm. I struggle to get better than 55 on the motorway. I find country roads, and plenty DFCO gives me my best figures.
Must say though, I did a lot better before I fitted the new tyres to the front.
