Driving on hot air?   ;D

MAF sensor or blocked air filter would be where I'd start, the second is easy to check and remedy.
Winter temperatures tend to have an adverse effect on fuel consumption anyway, but not to that extent.

Diesel is a little cheaper.

50 cents a gallon??? That's cheaper than the US and probably cheaper than Saudi Arabia, are you sure?!

MeyGen, in the Pentland Firth, is the big one here in Scotland.

It is a joint effort between Tidal Power Scotland Limited and Scottish Enterprise.

Some people don't like/want small turbo engines as they are highly stressed, so I suppose offering what the market wants is the path to success. Lots of new Jazz owners, here in the UK, are "more experienced" motorists. In markets where the Jazz demographic is a bit younger, the turbo will be lapped up.

I am certain I saw on the dreaded box an item re tidal power involving a tower with a collar that rose up and down with the tides. This would not be affected by high  or low tides as it is dependent on the rise and fall of the sea as opposed to tidal flow in harbour entrances.

I think that is called wavepower rather than tidal power.   Tidal flows result from the moon and the rotation of the Earth (the pull of moons gravity cause a 'hump' of water to travel around the Earth),  wavepower (swell) is the result of wind causing 'ripples' on the surface of oceans.

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: Weird steering problem!

Last update: Problem finally solved now!

It turned out that the control unit was all good and working - the problem was the battery. After changing the battery the EPS light went off and everything worked perfectly fine.

Well, that was a long journey to get the EPS working, but thanks again for all your help and support.

Cheers,

The battery is a much underrated part of the car,  and not a part to buy cheap - whenever I fit a new one (will definitely be a Yuasa)  I write the date on it,  it reminds me but also may be useful to anyone else who buys the car.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: Screen washer out put weak
« Last post by culzean on Today at 02:42:21 PM »
Due to the fact that washer bottle is below level of the nozzles on both front and rear screen there has to be a non-return valve to stop washer fluid draining the pipes every time.  I know there is a non-return in pipe to rear nozzle as I had to replace it on my GD,  it is in gap where rear tailgate opens and the electrical cables and washer pipe go from main body to tailgate.  Don't know where front one is but this is a standard part from places like Halfords
