    Japanese Car News

    meanwhile, Mazda sticks to nonhybrids and focusing on improving gasoline engines. First gasoline with compression ignition released in US. http://europe.autonews.com/article/20181127/COPY/311279914?template=mobile02&X-IgnoreUserAgent=1

    Engine knocking in civic SR

    oh,boy. Hope a piece of gunk in the fuel tank doesn't come off by the "magic arishte" from Mr.Potato Estate and block your high pressure fuel pump /fine pitch injector nozzles.

    Vehicle for 10 million

    Thats common to all Japanese Common rail diesels,due to our hi-sulfur fuel quality. This issue in 2012ish Pajeros is with the Fuel pressure and Temperature sensors. When it comes the vehicle wont start. Temporary solution is to remove the sensor. The vehicle of our "Loku Hamuduruvo" is at the agents for months now.
  4. Don't just believe in the hybrid battery capacity report. Some garages fix a gadget that shows good battery capacity despite battery being dead. Also some places make cut and bud with other model batteries(Insight,FIT). So a thorough visual check of the battery is also needed.

    Budget 2019

    Yes,because there is no mechanism to get 20 years old vehicles out of the roads. Instead of taxing vehicles with new technology during import, there should be a system to take out 20+yrs old vehicles with high emissions and poor safety features off the roads by making them too expensive to register.

    LED Light Bar

    hmm,dont think it will last long then. These Cheap ebay ones dont do well against water,dust at this position. Maybe applying an additional strip of silicon glue at the joints might help? Otherwise the effort and money spent on fixing would be wasted when one by one the bulbs fail.

    Difference Between WagonR Stringray & WagonR Premium

    Premium get 0.00675 Kms more per Liter than the non-premium. So after you drive 1-million kms you saved enough to by a Tuk-tuk.

    Mitsubishi diesel of these has fuel system electronics issues, not even the agent knows a proper solution.

    Maintenance costs vary a lot depending on the country. Referring a list from USA to make conclusions about SL is not a good idea. Many Euro users on the other hand have confirmed that it does not cost an arm and leg to service a Euro here in the long term. A good,old doctor can buy whatever he wants,in most cases he doesnt even have experience of driving a Euro. On the other hand if you are not sure, you can go to a car park of any big private hospital in the evening, you can count the ratio of Euro to Japs in the Doctor parking lot.

    The Toyota needs 13k every 5000km? What is the Engine? He doesnt do CVT oil change every 30000km,which is quite expensive but NOT necessary for Euros(AT,MT).

    What are the best fuel efficient Hybrids in Sri Lankan Market

    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.

    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.
