I used Tesco Momentum 99 in both my 1.3 Mk3s. I felt there was a small but nethertheless noticable increase in performance. One one occasion the car felt worse than usual and I am convinced that the 95 and 99 grades had been mixed up. On the next fill at a different Tesco all was restored to normal. I donít think I will be needing it in my 1.5 Sport though!

Give it a go for a couple of tankfuls and then a tankful of 95 and see if you notice any difference.

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Would the Mk3 benefit from premium petrol?

There's been extensive (but inconclusive) discussion previously in this forum.  Personally, I'm happy with 20,000 miles on ASDA 95, giving actual measured consumption of over 50 mpg.

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Would the Mk3 benefit from premium petrol?
« Last post by peteo48 on Today at 05:20:49 PM »
The recommendation in the manual for the Mk3 is the same as for the other Jazzes - 95 Octane or higher but the compression ration has seen a sharp increase with the Mk3 - it's now 13.5:1 so really a pretty high CR.

I'm thinking that this engine, more than the earlier cars, might benefit from premium fuel. Any views?

Yes, the one I had looked like that, but there again, I only saw it in sunlight.

Whereabouts are you in the UK? I might be selling mine soon. Very reliable indeed but there is a little rust showing through and the alloys need some attention. Might be too cheap for you anyway as it's probably worth well under a grand by now.

I'm based in Cambridge. I'm not ruling anything out - my last car was a £500 Fabia : )

You're right it takes mini blade fuses.  eBay or Amazon for "mini blade fuses" should get you there, or "mini fuse tap" if you want to piggyback an existing fuse.

Not sure how long you can leave a camera powered in parking mode before it has an impact on the car's battery, probably 24 hours.

John, Jocko. Thank you for your kind comments. 

The Milano Red does significantly change its apparent shade according to the ambient lighting conditions. The attached rear view was taken outside the dealers in the sunshine and it looks almost orange, whilst in the shade it looks even darker than the picture taken outside my house.

Fuse box looked too tricky for me so used a dual cigar lighter plug and run a 1 meter cable under the trim round the drivers side up and along to the internal mirror and secured the camera just to the left of the mirror so out of vision sight for GB MOT test, works fine.

Where do you get the small fuse holders? I got the F770 dashcam and extra hardwire kit but the fuses and holders were far too big, honda jazz must use mini fuses.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Ringing squeal noise from rear - ideas?

To close this out, as they say: Had a bit of back and forth with the dealer service manager but it's clear my dissatisfaction with their inability to find the problem first time or that the vehicle health check is so superficial that it misses something like this, is getting through to him.  Not to mention that the problem arose in the first place, but perhaps it is just one of things - no-one seems to even spray brake cleaner on brakes anymore, never mind actually service them.

Anyway it was playing on my mind so got the car in there this morning and they changed the rear pads and discs and they very pointedly mentioned a build-up of dirt in the caliper was causing uneven pad wear.

Unfortunately neither the service manager or the dealer principal were in today but the service advisor took it upon himself to try and re-run the whole argument.  I didn't really want to go there so just paid up.

He advised we should jet-wash the calipers, which I have to say is counter to what I'd have thought was a good idea.

Problem with rear disc brakes and alloy wheels is that the rear brakes pick up so much crap it is unbelievable.  Many people think that drum brakes on the rear are 'old tech' and are put off by them.  Drum brakes are more than adequate and make a better handbrake,  shoes will last 100,000 miles minimum and drums last forever.  I know rear drums are harder to work on but the truth is they need very little attention.    I am amazed how much cleaner my rear brakes are with winter tyres on (steel wheels, and wheel trims ) due to much better protection than alloys give.

Strange that the service guy advised jet washing brakes,  that is certain to push water past seals and bellows and cause even more rusting and trouble - It seems that service people are not what they used to be (a lot of them used to actually be interested in cars rather than just a day job - sounds like your guy was selling double glazing earlier in his career)).  Sounds like the guy was actually trying to shift the blame on to you for not jet-washing and otherwise 'maintaining' the brakes.    As I said before the whole thing was a very poor show,  all they want to  do is sell new cars and change the oil (although I would not even trust that guy to change the oil) and charge exhorbitant prices.
