Monaco GP

Red Bull Max Verstappen gives Hamilton a hard time and is on his rear bumper for most of the race, finishes within fractions of a second of winner Hamilton but  a 5 second time penalty incurred earlier in the race for an unsafe release in pit lane saw him involved in incident with Bottas took him back to 4th place, Red Bull Gasly finished 5th despite being moved back on the grid for allegedly impeding Crosjean in practice,  this is getting exciting. Looks like Red Bull / Honda collaboration is a winner - eat your heart out McLaren.

Can't go through life being risk averse and always wanting to know what happens next ! Leavers by and large are risk takers and have a world view rather than thinking nothing exists outside the EU.

No pain no gain - simples...... sovereignty trumps everything.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Re: A bit annoyed by dealer!!!

The moral is if you can do your own servicing do it, I have done engine and gearbox oil changes, spark plug changes, brake discs and pads, and coolant changes,  ( also brake and clutch fluid changes courtesy of a MityVac I bought years ago ) - that is really all the Jazz needs ( and a bit of redex every so often ) and never had a problem with our cars.  The servicing to keep the warranty is no more than blackmail, with even with just the  basic oil changes I doubt you will need to claim, I certainly have never had any problems at all, despite doing loads of miles.  In fact I am firmly of the opinion that miles are good for a car and low mileage vehicles used for short journeys suffer more problems than higher mileage ones.

I know exactly what has been done with our cars and that high quality engine and gearbox oils, antifreeze and brake fluids are used, which is more than you can say if car is serviced by dealer. 

IIRC The gearbox oil should be changed every 70,000 miles - it does not get contaminated by combustion products like engine oil but may darken with age. Modern gear oils, despite carrying a 75/85 viscosity rating are thin as engine oil, in fact dealer told me I could use normal engine oil in gearbox, problem is engine oil does not have all the extreme pressure additives that gear box oil gets, so that was a clue that dealers may just have 45 gallon drums of no-name engine oil that they use for everything to save money... but they don't pass savings on to you.

If you only drained a litre out I would be looking for leaks, I always take fill plug out first when doing gearbox oil ( to check oil is level with bottom of plug hole and also to make sure I can refill box )   if you take drain plug out first and cannot get fill plug out you have a problem.  Never found any oil has leaked out of gearbox.

Cruise control helps.

That figure is good.

That is certainly a good figure. I find the Jazz very fuel efficient, having averaged 54.2 mpg for the 3 years and 26,000 I have owned the car.

Jim. I think you are getting ahead of yourself. Jocko has answered the question which I suspect is the view taken by many, myself included. One step at a time.

On the contrary, I like to see where I'm going before I take a step.

Honda Jazz Mk2 2008-2015 / Great mpg...what do you get?
« Last post by geoffchats on May 26, 2019, 05:51:18 PM »
Just drove around 450 miles (Barnsley in Yorkshire to Croydon and back) in my 2009 Jazz EX IShift and got an mpg figure of 54.8 on the return journey. I think this is pretty good...do you agree. Around town I usually get 42-mpg. The picture is from the return journey, door to door, using Shell-Ultra fuel. The figure for the outbound ride was 55.0-mpg.
Cheers, Geoff

That might appear a touch myopic and rather vague in view of the existing impasse. We will have a clearer idea of the democratic impact of the Brexit Party very soon. If that proves to be a compelling result, it must surely shape future decisions in government and abroad.

Then you will be handing the disaster capitalists carte blanche. As you no doubt know, Rees-Mogg's father wrote books on it.

Deals will be done, I can assure you.

That's what they told us three years ago -- easiest deals ever etc.
Who's getting ahead of himself?
