Honda Jazz Mk4 2020 - / Re: EV mode - can anyone help please?
« Last post by culzean on Today at 04:38:51 PM »
And, unless you have been doing a lot of high speed driving (or it's the middle of winter), at 400 miles it's only time to start thinking about when to refuel. The best I've managed so far is 546 miles between fill-ups but since I could only get 33.8 litres into the 40 litre tank, 600 miles between top-ups should be feasible. Not bad given the size of the fuel tankand if one has enough patience and drives at the right speed on a day with a tail wind then this record https://www.theaa.com/about-us/newsroom/fuel-economy-record-attempt could be in jeopardy.

Try driving everywhere at 40mph like the AA drivers did...

Isn't this an issue with the mk1 rather than any other versions? Apologies if I'm wrong on this, just thought it was the 02-08.

A slightly ironic image considering us mk4 owners drive cars that do exactly what is pictured above  :D
Except the Mk 4 Jazz doesn't carry a sticker claiming it doesn't use gasoline. ;D

My mother in law got her first vaccine today. Just me waiting on a date for mine now. Letters start coming out this week for the over 70's, here in Scotland.

Comparing the first and the latest lockdowns.

A good comparison looking at interpretations of figures relating to testing, hospital occupancy and death rates.
What strikes me most is that the figures in the first set of graphs, relating to hospital occupancy and deaths, are consistently higher in the present lockdown  and so it would be even more disastrous to lift restrictions too soon again, as Mr Johnson appears to be considering.

Mixed messaging again.

I would join the Saab forum to look out for good 900 convertible must be the SAAB classic model then in the meantime hire  or rent the latest soft tops that you fancy. When I had a old  Karmann
Beetle back in the 1960s I changed for a newer model 1300 just to enjoy the normal sedan, no more wet seats and mega expensive doors / wings.
That's a really good idea. A lower value classic 900, and the odd treat weekend rental of something exotic!  8)

Honda Jazz Mk1 2002-2008 / Re: New battery or no new battery?
« Last post by Westy36 on Today at 02:47:06 PM »
The battery is the weak link in car reliability, and is largest single reason for calling roadside emergency services.. https://www.rac.co.uk/business/news-advice/flat-or-not

A battery is a chemical device and its life is absolutely dependent on outside influences like heat ( batteries in hot countries rarely last 2 years ), depth of discharge ( they like to be kept above 80% charged ), vibration ( which is probably why motorbike batteries only get a 12 month warranty )-  a decent regular run will keep your battery in good shape,  but it is not cost effective to do runs just to keep battery in good shape,  with cost of fuel today it is far cheaper to buy a new battery every 5 years.   Battery construction today is much better than it has ever been,  and  a lot of the problems that caused batteries to fail have been solved.  Batteries today are truly sealed and maintenance free, careful selection of plate alloying materials ( calcium and silver ) has meant that batteries no longer lose water and do not need constant topping up.  Better charging systems also give batteries more chance of lasting longer.  Having said that they are the most frequent cause of breakdowns,  and even a good quality battery today is so cheap that it hardly breaks the bank.  There are so many unknowns in what is happening inside a battery,  and as people find out you do get varying degrees of warning,  but sometimes not much.
Fantastic. I think that has answered a lot of questions I hadn't even thought to ask! I do like a detailed Culzean post.  :D always learn something new.
