  2. Best Engine oil fit shuttle gp2

    I'm not sure if someone here would have one, but there are plenty of Facebook car groups where there would be other GP2 owners who would have it. There are some groups which are specifically for hybrids also. Using an engine oil viscosity higher than recommended would strain the engine and reduce the fuel economy
  3. Can disable get driving licence

    Yep there is a procedure, if you talk to a driving school they would be able to guide you. Good luck, hope you get a driving license soon
  4. Best Engine oil fit shuttle gp2

    Check your user manual to find out the recommended viscosity of engine oil for your car engine. I think most hybrids use an oil viscosity lower than 30 when new.
  5. If I was you I would be more interested in the 1800cc Premio/Allion than the 1500cc. 1. The 1800cc is more smoother than 1500cc as it has more power. 2. As you have stated they are 15-16 year old cars hence an engine which has struggled more would have been worn out more than the one which worked easily with less stress

    Does look good! Love the wheels

      no its added to a separate tank,and sprayed tiny amounts into the exhaust manifold by an injector. not a fuel additive which goes in the fuel tank.

      I see so it's no big deal. Btw the DPF issue seems to be more in the ones with DPF regeneration button than the ones with auto DPF regeneration. Atleast that's how it is in Hiace. From 2013 onwards Hiace came with a button for DPF regeneration and they seem to be getting clogged easily.

      Euro 6 also has DPF. Does the adblue reduce the chance of it getting clogged?

      sorry I meant the NOx storage catalyst is replaced by the SCR-adblue system. Particulates still need to be taken care of by DPF. It is the only way to fulfill Euro6 emissions norm.But you have an advantage that fewer or no Lambda sensors are needed(also a part which fails prematurely) More information can be found from wikipedia German article https://de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selektive_katalytische_Reduktion "By a selective catalytic reduction nitrogen oxides are removed from the exhaust gas with a high efficiency. In contrast to the diesel particulate filter (DPF), there is no additional fuel consumption. This advantage also applies to the alternative method of reducing nitrogen oxides by means of a NO x storage catalyst which, like the DPF, requires a temporary avoidance of optimum combustion conditions. The installation of an SCR NOx reduction system makes it possible to operate the engine at more fuel-efficient operating points. Consumption thus drops by between 3 and 8%, depending on the driving style."

  8.  You guys remember Californican?

    If he was around AL now he would be having a blast with all these hybrids and electric cars coming down to SL now

    If it wasn't for him the Wankel engine wouldn't have been popular as it is today

    When I saw the name MX 7. I thought it's a bigger version of Miata Then I realised it's the Micro thing
  11. Japanese Car News

    Generally I think it's a month. It could change depending on the demand When Vezel was released people went bonkers and waiting time was 4 or 5 months
  13. Tata Indica 2008 vs chery qq

    Older Japanese cars weren't complicated and are simple to fix. You could take them to any mehcanic and get them sorted out. Parts aren't expensive either.
