Honda Jazz Mk4 2020 - / Re: Fuel Consumption
« Last post by Marmoset on Today at 09:33:40 PM »
Over 15k of mainly motorway miles Iím getting around 50mpg on the motorway at 70mph which is good considering the performance as well.

I plan to try dropping from 70 to 55-60 on a regular 110 mile trip I do soon, just to see what the difference in fuel economy is.

Fuel is now getting close to £2 a litre and a few minutes longer travel time wonít matter if there is a big jump in mpg.
If you're happy rolling along at 55 - 60 you might be pleasantly surprised.  I've done 600 miles since my last brimmed tank.  I was aiming to see whether a 1000km was possible but the range displayed started going down much faster than the distance covered so I'm going to end up about 10km short.

The fuel economy since filling is showing as 78mpg.  (B + Econ, a lot of 57-59mph driving with occasional bursts of extra speed while overtaking.)

You can message them from their Facebook page, but if they donít like what you say all they do is block you  :D :D

Personally I hate social media, but it can be useful.

See if Honda have a social media presence & if they have hit them with the facts.   Most organisations hate bad press.....and social media has a way of stimulating a reaction from them......
Thanks, for most companies they are big on social media but Honda is awful.

Looking through some of their posts, they havenít even responded to potential customers - all they seem to do is post poor quality adverts about meaningless features and not engage with any of the replies.

Iíve emailed back to Honda and given them a list of the 6 garage visits.

I expect Honda customer services is likely just an outsourced call centre though.

Reading up on the evaporative emissions system, it's hard to see how it could cause any running issues.

Effectively, the fuel tank "breather" is connected to a charcoal filled canister, mounted at the rear of the engine. This canister has a vacuum operated diaphragm that can open and control gas flow through the charcoal canister.

The purpose of this canister is to absorb fuel vapor that naturally evaporates off the fuel. To enable this fuel to be removed, there is a solenoid valve mounted on top of the throttle body, and when this is energised, it allows engine vacuum to open the canister diaphragm valve to allowed the stored fuel in the the charcoal to be pulled out and burnt in the engine.

Apparently, this only happens when the engine is above 70C, and it's unclear whether the solenoid valve then stays open all the time when above 70C.

The P0443 fault indicates a problem with the solenoid valve, but it's unclear how the ECU would know, unless it has a method of monitoring current flow on that output.

Apparently there is a pressure / vacuum relief valve built into the filler cap in case the evap system fails, but that puzzles me as well. I'd always assumed that the "pffffft" noise when undoing the filler cap was positive pressure inside the tank escaping, but the action of the evap system would suggest that it is, in fact, a negative pressure (vacuum) in the tank - which you wouldn't think would be good for a pump to pull from.

So, what could happen to the evap system to stop it operating? Well obviously the solenoid valve could fail to open, but that wouldn't be a problem to the engine as it runs quite happily without it when below 70C, so I would doubt if the engine would notice if it had failed.

Do check the rubber vacuum lines on it though, as a split would allow unmetered air into the engine and that can cause a few issues.

I'll be driving my new to me 21 Jazz EX overnight, to avoid traffic, from Taunton to Vienna next month. It will be a great test of the Jazz's economy at 70 Mph for a 1,000 motorway miles. I'm betting it'll do the journey more frugally than my BMW 1250 motorcycle, we will see.... 8)

Honda Jazz Mk4 2020 - / Re: UK car driven in France
« Last post by BigT on Today at 07:09:59 PM »
Just got back from France.
I think the official national speed limit on single carraigeways is 80kph, and if it is raised it will show 90kph signs. That's what appears to be the practice anyway, my Garmin satnav was generally correct but there are a lot of 70kph stretches dotted around which are not correct on the satnav, so you do need to take a lot of notice of the signs. Many towns and villages have a lot of 30kph (yes, that's under 20mph) zones.
Remember on roads with 3 lanes, 2 one way and 1 the other such as in hilly areas for overtaking slow vehicles, the limit on the 1 lane side is 80kph and on the 2 lane side it is 90kph. It does work OK.
Got back to Portsmouth last night, M27 closed westbound, works on the M3/A3, works on the A34. Welcome back to the UK.
Funniest thing was when coming back to UK the young lady in the French passport control asked me when I'd arrived in France, there was no entering stamp in my passport. I said the date and shrugged, a classic use of the gallic shrug I thought, what did she expect me to do about it. She looked at it, stamped it with the exit date, shrugged and wished me a good journey. Hopefully there is some other sort of record of when I arrived there, otherwise the 90/180 day thing could potentially be in question. We shall see.
Great now isn't it? (not).
Get a CritAir, it's simple and cheap and you've got it. Carry hi-vis IN the car cabin. Have "some" spare bulbs, it'll do. Spare specs if you wear them. All the usual stuff.
..... and take your good humour with you, it's very helpful at times.

I live partly in Austria and partly in UK, driving regularly across Europe from Vienna to the Eurotunnel and beyond in one day. The road works on the German autobahn make the UK look possibly utopian. Some go on for 20 kms and more at 45 Mph (80 Kmh). i'll be doing the trip again shortly by my motorcycle, then driving our RHD Jazz back to Vienna. Don't ask why.....

You should be concerned about your passport stamp, if you get a jobs worth check your passport next time through Europe, you may need to answer some questions. I suggest you keep all the evidence of your journey with the missing stamp and travel with it next time, just in case. I have an EU residents card and even with it sometimes have to stand up to the border guards, especially in France who want to stamp everything British. I even carry a copy of the residents regulation in French. Belt and braces I know but the French can be an utter, utter pain in the derriere. Generally I avoid France if at all possible, not least because of the expensive tolls on motorways. All that said I enjoyed your post. Take care out there, Tony.

Than one of poor hypermiling tricks, when you stay behind large car on motorway you benefit from lower air drag, this will give you better MPG, but there risk to total car.
He doing   that using ACC with minimum distance in settings, this may not work in Israel- our drivers hot and unpredictable  :), I tried ACC with such settings once, car lowering speed without problems but several times ACC switched off by CMBS I think.
