Unfortunately the 1.5  engine is direct injection so any cleaning potions in, or added to the fuel only clean the fuel injectors and not the inlet valves which collect crud from the EGR system.

Could this be part of the economy biased programming of the 1.3 engine and CVT?

Definitely.

My Mk3 CVT has more bhp and more torque than my wife's Mk1 CVT, but it doesn't feel like in normal driving.

I think there seems to be one point where the computer does not know best.

If you are running at about 30 mph and you try to accelerate moderately, the engine will try it's best to respond, but is held back because the CVT won't change down and it maintains about 1600 rpm, until the road speed reaches about 40 mph, thereupon the CVT wakes up and allows the engine speed to increase, thereby generating more power.

To my mind in that situation, the engine is working harder than it needs to, at relatively low speed, which can't be good for long life.

Obviously you can floor it, to overcome that limitation, or flick a paddle to change down a notch, which is something I've now got into the habit of doing.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: SI and SI-T differences?

According to Parkers, the SI only comes in the T variant!
https://www.parkers.co.uk/honda/jazz/hatchback-2008/specs/

That is strange because Parkers list Si-T as having satnav and my wifes MK2 Si does not have a screen let alone satnav, but it does have cruise control and everything else on the standard equipment list,  I think T stands for tech, as in tech screen ?

That sounds much like my car except no Atkinson. There is a "step" if you are a bit enthusiastic with the right foot. Or even a couple if you   are accelerating hard.

Does anyone know if the MK2 has a torque converter or start clutch CVT?

As I said, the computer knows best depending on what you do with your right foot. Tickle the accelerator and you get smooth acceleration, use power and it  will simulate a gear change or kickdown. In my post above I was referring to running through the seven computer generated ratios with the steering wheel paddles to check they worked. They do, but I doubt if I will use them much if at all, the CVT is easily controlled with your right foot.

How do you decelerate with the CVT with your right foot alone?
Lift off. You don't get as much deceleration as you would in a manual though unless you use the paddles. Even then there seem to be limits as to what the CVT will tolerate and it starts releasing then re-applying the braking as if trying to release pressure. In normal mode though I find that most of the time there's enough retardation to avoid using the brakes - even around town - but I have had to increase the gap to the vehicle in front and look a little further ahead.

The Mk1 was different from Mk2 and Mk3 because sometimes even in 'standard' mode the CVT would give quite reasonable retardation when you lifted off. It didn't do it very often though and I never managed to work out how to reliably trigger it.

But I think Skyrider just means that you can use your right foot to control the gear ratio which I suppose is correct. As a lowly 1.3 user I have to use my right foot sometimes to get the engine out of Atkinson mode. That's one thing that does cause a 'step' while accelerating. Possibly fixed in the face lifted 1.3 as I didn't notice it in February when I had a courtesy car.
