    Honda Fit GP1 fuel meter issue

    Thank you tilvin and sira. It was a great tip and it fixed overnight lol. I usually pump half tank soon as the alarm comes and it was weird this time. Hopefully it remains the same way. Here you go a virtual beer 🍺 lol

    TOYOTA PREMIO VS. AUDI A3

    Mate I gave that example on the type R civic which has a lot more firm suspension than either the Audi or Mazda. I agree that the Audi overall is much better than the Mazda as a drivers car.

    iRage , maybe you can’t process things I say, my English is not good as yours I admit, maybe that’s why. . Maintenance is not just oil changers I know. It’s the overall services , repairs. I never mentioned that I know better than you , on the contrary , I have always mentioned your knowledge and experience in a number of my posts. I meant it as a compliment and not as a joke or sarcasm. You seem to think otherwise. S60 shock was at a 3rd party place and if you said that the mark II shock will cost the same then I don’t have anything to say. Anyway, knowledge and theory won’t alone make everything right. You need experience as well. But if you say that maintaining a euro and Japanese will cost more or less the same I will accept that I’m wrong and your correct no problem ! I have stated my experience. So I hope most people will drive euros than Japs in the future. I will get a TL invoice tomorrow and get the other members who asked for proof on the service cost 😊

    TOYOTA PREMIO VS. AUDI A3

    Only reason to buy an Audi A3 over Premio is brilliantly explained here. Apart from this A3 is not a proper Audi by any standards, it's just a cheap euro car designed to overcome tight EU emission standards and aimed to capture the market of Jap cars. But it doesn't offer the Toyota reliability or the fuel economy! You won't get the performance nor the comfort of a proper Audi, but of course you can brag about how you can afford an Audi in front of non-car people! You won't be accepted by the euro car community as a proper Audi owner nor will be accepted by the Jap car community as a reliable economy car owner! 😕 So chose wisely!

    Honda Fit GP1 fuel meter issue

    I am not joking bro.....😃. I am actually helping you. My good friend Mr. Vernon Silva (who is over 80s now....) also has a GP1. He told that when he pumps fuel at the shed the fuel meter won't show. But in the next day mornings usually the fuel meter shows the correct value. Based on his experiences only I have told you.....😃

    Honda Fit GP1 fuel meter issue

    Hi I had a slimier issue with my GP1 2011 and finaly realized that if its very low on the tank you need to fill at least 10-15 liters to get rid of Waring. I used to fill the tank with 1500 LKR to get rid of the Waring and now it is 1700 LKR. so try to fill another 5 liters and see if its reset

    Saw some moisture in my tail lights after the heavy rains and weird climate. That’s normal and will evaporate during the day assuming it’s just moisture and not like a large collection of water. If you’re having halogen headlight assemblies, you may notice a tiny ventilation hole (it’s really tiny) somewhere in front. Not much water can get in, but you may have the occasional moisture build up if it’s hit head-on with a high pressure hose. By the way, does anyone have like a tiny fluttering noise from the Aircon while it’s running (not when just the fan is working)? Thought it was the belt, but there’s no noise from outside or the engine area, just inside the cabin. Got the cabin filter cleaned as well, but it’s this faint noise like some paper whistling about.
  13. Fully wearing of the brake pad is highly unlikely of a 2015 Aqua otherwise it has done at-least 150,000 km or severe issue in break system. Car millage? Usage under your ownership? Is it depend on the braking style? I mean, 1. any difference with sudden brake and gradual braking? 2. any noise when you release the brake?

    What are the best fuel efficient Hybrids in Sri Lankan Market

    Exactly! These Hybrids do something close to 15+ kmpl even when driven like maniacs. I was never able to understand what more these guys are expecting to achieve by hogging the right lane at 40 kmph. 😕

    TOYOTA PREMIO VS. AUDI A3

    Own Mazda 6 and Audi A5 Sline sport back (19 inch wheels). Audi suspension is bit stiff on dynamic mode and you feel it when hitting relatively large cracks/holes. However i do not feel uncomfortable when going through unevenness as mentioned by you. Of course if you set to normal mode it gets more comfy. Mazda 6 Vs Audi - definitely the Audi

    What are the best fuel efficient Hybrids in Sri Lankan Market

    Yes. 100% agreed. What you are telling is true. I normally don't drive this way. I do sudden acceleration in sport mode to overtake buses most of the time. I didn't say i'm constantly driving this way. I said once I achieved this and car is capable and any one can try that. ( Cars these days are so much advance in engineering and you have to give credit for that.) I said my best figures. Only once I have achieved that figure. But if one can drive this way ( without getting bored ) it will not only save fuel money. These driving techniques having mechanical sympathy ( please search in the net before anyone trying to insult me ) which will increase lifetime of your car (engine, transmission, breaks, suspension etc). But at the end of the day who has time for that. Family is waiting and getting back home as soon as possible is the best.

    What are the best fuel efficient Hybrids in Sri Lankan Market

    I don't know how fast you drove or if you crated traffic by trying to drive this way, but my question is, is all this effort worth it? Can you enjoy your ride this way? I also drive a hybrid and in the first couple of months after getting it, I was obsessed with trying to see how much fuel it would do. I wasnt bothered about the fuel cost, but I wanted to see if I can break my best fuel efficiency record. It was all about improving 'stats'. I didnt drive slow on purpose but I tried all sorts of gimmicks to get F/E maximized. And let me tell you, the drives became really boring and I almost fell asleep couple of times during night time drives. Turn off your fuel efficiency display and set it to show temperature or something else. Now forget about fuel efficiency. Try driving now. You'd feel a huge weight lifted from your head and you'll feel the freedom of driving once again. And if money is your concern, you won't save more than Rs. 500 a month by changing your driving style.

    Alarm issue seems to have fixed itself. It didn't go off again. Hope it will remain like that. I noticed moisture buildup inside the headlights after washing the car or after driving in the rain. Is that normal? Anyone else experiencing this?

    TOYOTA PREMIO VS. AUDI A3

    You really should try winning the Darwin award....maintenance cost is not just oil costs and filters. If you do maintain a Toyota at the agents then yes..the bill does rack up ! I have maintained quite a few cars with the agents....so yeah although you think you know better than I do...you are being the typical pigeon holed pundit (just like the whole Thai car issue with your Ford...). Old Japanese cars are straight forward...but that has nothing to do with the fact that the agents do not charge you an arm and a leg for services and for parts. Even though the platform of the Premio/Allion is a decade old, it has been bandaged up with new tech. You really don't want a maka baas to be messing around with it only to find things like the Toyota Safety Sense features not working (and it has happened). About your shock-absorber example...you just shot yourself on the foot with that one. Yes....a Mark II shock costs that much....at the KYB agent one shock assembly costs 20 something thousand...Mark X is a bit cheaper than 30K (granted this was in late 2015). Check one of the previous threads where the agents had asked for a similar amount for a shock that is much simpler for an Aqua or something....so parts are not cheap if you want to use the actual "genuine"part. The same part from a third party is a bit cheaper. As for the Axio prices..I said there are misconceptions there....the scan they do is not a full diagnostic on battery, gearbox etc...they just do a quick read of error codes. So you harping on about it being 13,000 for a service and diagnostic is not entirely accurate (and misleading...). To be honest I do not know why I even bother responding to your posts. It is as intellectually stimulating as talking to a brick wall. At the end of the day, what meets the OPs requirements is the Premio. Maintained properly or poorly there always will be someone there to buy it at a ridiculous price as long as it looks shiny and the gold badges are in tact.

    Were you there ? How can you tell it causing traffic ? You want race you can race. I drive within the speed limits. This is from car makers.

    TOYOTA PREMIO VS. AUDI A3

    Just now I inquired from TL prices for the below items for NKE 165 AXIO Hybrid Genuine oil filter - 2652/= Genuine Air filter - 5682/= Toyota conventional Oil 10W-30 - 4646/= So the cost of parts amounts to Rs. 12,980/=. So, could you please explain to me how on earth you manage to do a full service for Rs. 13000?

    Dude if you really want to save the environment take a scooty,tuktuk or Public transport instead of your weird "Glide and Wank" methods on the road causing heavy traffic jams behind you.

    TOYOTA PREMIO VS. AUDI A3

    No,Sri lanka has the worlds largest density of "thel higannas" as you can see from these discussions. IF mainstream Europeans(not UK or Norway,which are not really EU) cared so much about fuel consumption(~1.5Euro/L for Petrol and ~1.4Euro/L for diesel), all would be driving Prius now instead of the traditional Combustion powertrains.

    TOYOTA PREMIO VS. AUDI A3

    We are taking about this due to the idiotic tax system in this country As per the current tax regime tax for Audi A3 1.0L = Rs. 1.75 Mn. Allion 1.5L = Rs. 4.785 Mn. Given the fact the fact that both cars are similarly priced any one with grade 5 mathematics knowledge knows that actual value of the Audi is Rs. 3.0 Mn more. Go and get it before the government change their mind
