Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - / Re: Reserve tank
« Last post by andruec on September 22, 2018, 07:45:01 PM »
I would normally fill up at half to two thirds empty but I have a long journey tomorrow with a return trip on Monday so decided I could just about get to/from work for a week then drive to my golf club and back before filling up for the trip. Turns out I was cutting it more fine than I thought.

I might have to start filling up once a week instead of every two weeks, especially with winter approaching. Irritating :-/

As others have said, the range on the readout is just an estimate, which is continual, so for example if you start going uphill, or press on, it drops almost immediately. I tend to fill up when the range drops below 100 miles, but that's just me. There is something satisfying in getting a good range out of one tank, but you have to weigh that against the probability of running out of fuel - and dragging the bits of silt and whatnot that accumulate at the bottom of fuel tanks over time into the fuel pump. In general, I drive to the green eco light, and I'm averaging over 50mpg, so I don't fill up that often. Fantastic!

I use the Sat nav on my phone and was struggling to find a place for it on the mk3 as the 5 inch screen obscured too much drivers vision. Have just received a holder from Amazon that fits into the CD slot, seems ideal for me as all my music is on a us b stick connected in the centre console. I didn't want to stick the Sat nav to the 7 inch screen as I use the audio and phone modes.
The CD slot holder comes with 3 thicknesses of rubber spacers to ensure a tight fit. It is very sturdy and holds the phone in an ideal position so is worth considering.

Quite common to be offered on lease cars as you get billed for damage on returning them, a workmate had an alloy and tyre replaced on a citroen ds3 using this insurance which recouped his money. Impossible to say if you'll need it, I didn't bother on my last lease car.

I would unplug the aircon relay and heated screen relay ( or the associated fuse )  - any relay can stick in the closed position and because the main power does not go through ignition switch contacts they can drain battery real quick even with ignition key out - the aircon clutch coil will draw about 4 amps ( drain fully charged battery in 7 to 8 hours ) and heated screen will draw more - it is fairly common for relays to stick, there was a service bulletin issued a few years ago on 8 gen Civic to replace aircon relay because of contacts sticking closed with no power on relay coil.

You can check if power on heated screen by putting a voltmeter across the metal contacts on rear screen - but harder to do on aircon clutch.

You may find it easier to pull out the appropriate fuses for aircon and heated screen and mirrors as this will disconnect the main power to the relays.

A relay has a magnetising coil that closes main contacts when energised, the coil only draws a fraction of an amp but the main contacts carry a much heavier current. It is called a relay because you instruct the coil via a very light switch to close the contacts which then ' relay ' the command to switch a heavy current to the device being controlled.  The problem starts when you remove power from coil and contacts stay closed, the contacts should be opened by a spring, but sometimes spring breaks or not strong enough to open contacts if they are oxidized and stick together.

I have a plastic edge fitted to my driver's door. I take it off every time I wash the car, except in the winter, when I fill it with Vaseline!

I have a pound shop gardening kneeling pad attached to my garage wall as a door protector.
