Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Would the Mk3 benefit from premium petrol?
« Last post by jazzway on Today at 04:13:33 PM »
For me it is simple. I donít like ethanol in petrol! The Shell V-Power (98) i fill the tank with contains no ethanol. I get a little more noticeable MPG, some more power, but most important: NO ethanol.

Living near the Belgium and German borders, i am cheaper with the V-Power tanked in Belgium than the regular 95 in the Netherlands.

Btw, i also think (and hope) that the better additives in Shell maybe prevent future problems with the fuel filter.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Rear wiper blade

Bosch do a rear wiper, comes as blade and plastic arm. Eurocarparts stock it, don't think it's expensive. I usually can't be bothered collecting one when needed. I just keep the rubber out of front wipers when I change them, then use them to replace the rear rubber when needed.

"Is it the same result using the driver's controls as the rear passenger controls?" - i think ive only tried it with drivers controls. ill check with rear controls when out later.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: 2012 EX - best tyres?

I'm considering Avons for the front to save a few quid, but will probably stick with what I know.

I had Avons several years ago on a Ford, personally I was not impressed either with the wear or handling in the wet.

On my previous Civic I had Uniroyal Rainexpert tyres all round, made by Continental but a reasonably priced mid range tyre, I really liked them good wear and handling especially in the wet and also quiet, I shall go for them again when this Civic needs new rubber.

I have used supermarket petrol "for ever", and never had the least bit of bother. I bought one car, with 100,000 miles on the clock, and ran it for another 100,000 miles, all on supermarket petrol. Never had the least bit of bother.

We used lots of Variable speed 3ō motors and they were extremely reliable and exceptionally low maintenance. DC motors, on the other hand, were the bane of our life with hours of maintenance work ever year.

This won't work.  The damage was done when you registered your email address on the site.  You can't undo that.
As I am well aware.  :(
Just don't want anyone else registering.

Solid state inverters are very, very efficient and an induction motor has benefits that it does not not need a commutator and its associated brushes, which are high wear items. 3 phase induction motors are well proven in industry but without a variable frequency inverter are basically single fixed speed units.

older inverters tended to use square wave instead of sine wave as it is easier to generate but modern electronics are much cleverer and can make shapes approaching a proper sine wave like the one supplied from national grid.
