I suspect that the filler pipe also holds a litre or two which may not be part of the specified tank capacity and hence, if the tank is filled to the brim, it can take around 50 miles until the gauge moves off full. This pipe capacity needs to be added to the reserve based on a 40 litre capacity.
I find it's typically 80 miles before the gauge moves off full after filling up to "2nd click". Then roughly 20 miles per bar.

So glad I don't do fuel gauge stress, I take a quarter of a tank as a hint that fuel is required. When doing Edinburgh / London runs I fill up at my half way overnight stop. That gives me a good contingency reserve.

Here's a recent relevant discussion about CVT fluid https://clubjazz.org/forum/index.php?topic=10441.0.

I believe that Honda used to specify 4 years / 50k miles but after development of the CVT judder problem the recommended interval was reduced (in around 2013) to 2 years / 25k miles. If in any doubt do a CVT fluid change.

I've had 480 miles between fills on one occasion, after long duel carriageway trips, and the refill was 38.5 litres, so I think 500 miles is certainly achievable.  The gauge was down to one bar and not many miles remaining, but on another occasion I drove 10 miles or so beyond the zero miles remaining.  I don't think anyone should worry about running it down to zero miles remaining, provided of course you know where the next filling station is!
When I had the Mk 3 Jazz I once filled up after 504 miles with 1 bar remaining on the fuel gauge. I managed to get 36.78 litres into the tank. I suspect that the filler pipe also holds a litre or two which may not be part of the specified tank capacity and hence, if the tank is filled to the brim, it can take around 50 miles until the gauge moves off full. This pipe capacity needs to be added to the reserve based on a 40 litre capacity.

It's advisable to have a nearby backup filling place if running near empty just in case the first one is closed for some reason. Also hope there's no jam on the motorway just before the planned end of the journey - crawling traffic at walking pace is not an efficient way to make progress.

That implies that the car thinks I can drive nearly 500 miles on one tank.

Asked Formula 1 the cost of changing transmission fluid in my Honda Jazz Auto 2004 and they replied they
could not do it as they do not have anyone sufficiently qualified.

Honda Ewell charge 75.   Can anyone tell me how often this should be changed ?

Thanks for that. There may be a option of attaching a strap to the seat legs as well .
Incidentally looking at a video of a Fit it appears to have tie down points on the back of the rear seat. Must be to cope with the extra power!!!!

The tiedowns on the back of some car seats are for child seats, some have a strap which comes over the top of the seat.

I posted this on another forum yesterday.

I had a similar one driving from Newcastle to Edinburgh up the A1 yesterday. A BMW (obviously) varying his speed from 50 to 60mph in the 60 limits and 60 and 70 in the 70 limits for no apparent reason. When I was eventually able to overtake him in a dual carriageway section he accelerated, obviously not aware that there is a more powerful Jazz around. He almost accelerated into the back of a car in lane one with this antic and then gave up and slowly dropped back as I pottered along on cruise control at the speed limit.

Driving standards were being discussed.

Would a simple strap around the lowered seat back and your fishing kit work?
