I found out the hard way NOT to jet wash around the brakes. All it did was fill up the gap tween this and that and needed a strip down to get the grit out of the caliper/pads and cover.  I had covered the discs etc up with a plastic bag but a pressure washer laughs at plastic bags.
Incidentally, I had problems with a main dealer and brakes. Eventually done BUT as they had replaced the pads prior to selling the car and when I made a fuss they replaced the front discs NOT the pads and replaced rear discs and pads. When I put it to Honda, it was done as a good will gesture. They would not comment on the front pads not being replaced. The problem with some dealers it seems is that if it passes it's MOT that's fine BUT modern cars should do more than JUST PASS the MOT. By the By it had a Honda 2 yr extended warranty. There was more substance  in what I have just written than their flipping warranty.

Redex seems to have been around for years. Did you notice any difference when you used it?

I should add that in my experience, I noticed a marginal increase in MPG of @2-3%.
They do in other territories, the current Hybrid has an i-DCD 7 speed dual clutch gearbox with the electric motor connected directly to the odd gears shaft. Seems to be sold in the far East.

The additives part is all a bit mysterious, I compare it to Evian vs Volvic water, they're all fundamentally the same but one maybe tastes better? Or is it just marketing?

I can say that there is little linking the brand names to the supply chains these days, Shell petrol won't be refined or drilled by Shell. The majority of forecourts are licensees, the operators may have many different brands in their group, but that doesn't mean everywhere sells the same thing, there are regional / seasonal differences that have greater variation than that between brands which have to comply with a fairly detailed standard.

Distribution is in the hands of just a couple of wholesalers now, the 'customer blend' is done at one stage before tanker fill to enable QC and standards to be monitored. UK petrol is now imported, our few remaining refineries mostly produce diesel based products and liquified petroleum gasses.

(My father spent most of his career with ExxonMobil special products division as a Chartered automotive engineer, he still gets quite a few trade magazines which I tend to browse)
I have no idea of hybrids whatsoever but wondered how easy it would be for Honda to fit one to the current model Jazz?  From comments I have seen on this forum, people seem to like them.

my jazz came with dunlops, but needed replacing at only 8,000 miles on the front!! 

That is quick wear what motoring are you doing, my brand new Jazz with 16" wheels came with Dunlops and it still had the originals on with approx. 3mm on the fronts and 5mm on the rears when I traded it in with 14k on the clock.

Right enough. Fuse box has them all supplied off one fuse but there are auxiliary fuses further down the line.

Only one I have used recently is Redex Fuel System Cleaner, and I found Asda the cheapest place to buy it.

They are on individual fuses #18 & #19 both 20A, but I suspect wouldn't work at all if blown. Is it the same result using the driver's controls as the rear passenger controls?

The guide here may help:
