  1. Just starting a thread so members can post about any discounts, offers, promotions that can help us save $$$. This thread covers all brands (I noted some chat on adjacent threads about specific brands, and some chatter in the petrol thread too, so if this thread isn't appropriate, please merge) And some other threads are getting long? Anyways, please share any discounts and coupons, and if you have some, you can post here so others can get it from you. If you know if any new promotions, please post - location - brand - type of offer Thanks!
  2. Cars that run on hydrogen and exhaust only water vapor are emerging to challenge electric vehicles as the world’s transportation of the future. At auto shows on two continents Wednesday, three automakers unveiled hydrogen fuel cell vehicles to be delivered to the general public as early as next spring. Hyundai Motor Co. will be the first to the mass market in the U.S. It unveiled a hydrogen-powered Tucson small SUV at the Los Angeles Auto Show that will be leased to consumers. Honda also revealed plans in Los Angeles for a car due out in 2015. Earlier, at the Tokyo Motor Show, Toyota promised a mass-produced fuel cell car by 2015 in Japan and 2016 in the U.S. Hydrogen cars are appealing because unlike electric vehicles, they have the range of a typical gasoline car and can be refueled quickly. Experts say the industry also has overcome safety and reliability concerns that have hindered distribution in the past. But hydrogen cars still have a glaring downside — refueling stations are scarce, and costly to build. Consumers can expect costs in line with some luxury models. In Tokyo, Toyota promised a price of $50,000 to $100,000, and as close to the lower figure as possible. That’s comparable to its Lexus luxury sedans, but a range that makes the once space-age experiment with fuel cells more credible. Hyundai said it will lease the Tucsons for $499 per month for three years with $3,000 down. And Hyundai is offering to pay the hydrogen and maintenance costs. The company will start leasing in the Los Angeles area, where most of the state’s nine fueling stations are located. California lawmakers have allocated $100 million to build 100 more. Honda wouldn’t reveal any pricing details. Even as battery-powered and hybrid-electric cars took on conventional gasoline models in the past decade, automakers continued research into hydrogen fuel cells, said Paul Mutolo, director of external partnerships for the Cornell University Energy Materials Center. Manufacturers now are limited only by costs and the lack of filling stations, he said. Hydrogen cars, Mutolo said, have an advantage over battery-powered electric cars because drivers don’t have to worry about running out of electricity and having to wait hours for recharging. “It’s very similar to the kind of behavior that drivers have come to expect from their gasoline cars,” he said. Hydrogen fuel cells use a complex chemical process to separate electrons and protons in hydrogen gas molecules. The electrons move toward a positive pole, and the movement creates electricity. That powers a car’s electric motor, which turns the wheels. Since the hydrogen isn’t burned, there’s no pollution. Instead, oxygen also is pumped into the system, and when it meets the hydrogen ions and electrons, that creates water and heat. The only byproduct is water. A fuel cell produces only about one volt of electricity, so many are stacked to generate enough juice. Hydrogen costs as little as $3 for an amount needed to power a car the same distance as a gallon of gasoline, Mutolo said.

  5. Hi, Anybody using Sinopec xpower? I tried last week and after travelling 400km on my 12years old honda, I encountered my engine oil turning green. My friend who drive a new Toyota also has the same issue. Anybody face the same problem?
  6. Which brand should I buy for fuel cleaning system ??
  7. Hi, we have all heard of various cars and their respective FC blah blah blah, but alot of them are hearsay or heard from someone from internet of review or from internet. And i realized not all the time these hearsay or myths are accurate. Example, i used to drive the old Nissan Sunny, before i buy, i already heard many hearsay or comments from internet saying it is a heavy petrol drinker. But for me, after buying it, i usually pumped 33-35litre of full tank, and i can cover average about 400-420km. It wasn't that bad actually right? And now i am driving Elantra, 2011 model. Full tank about 40-42litre...and i can cover 520km per full tank. I don't consider this very good. How about you guys? What car you driving and how much you spent every full tank and how much can it cover you?

    Calculating fuel economy

    I take the trip meter km reading and divide by the filled up litres at the pump, getting km/l. I then compute the monthly average to judge economy vs driving trend. Anyone else with other methods?
  10. Hello, i have a little problem after i did a stage 1 ecu remap my mpg has decreased significantly when driving in town i can see the km range drop every 5 - 10 seconds by 1 km example whan i start up the car i have 250km left on fuel and after mayby 5km of driving it dropped to 210,while driving very normal when driving on the highway and using cruise control it comsumes fuel normally (or even better?) does anyone knows what the problem is? its a bmw 520d - year 2010- manual - 163hp version i have asked the tuner to just push the engine to it's limits without dangering the car components i did not ask him anything about fuel efficiency could it be that he remapped the engine so i have non stop torque at the low rpm's (like 0 - 2000 rpm) if so, would lowering the torque from 0 - 2000 rpm will get me a better fuel efficiency? i have added a picture, these are the results of the remap thank you in advance
  11. As above, the honda civic 1.8 fuel tank capacity how much ah?? Thanks!

  14. I am currently considering b/w these 3 models-> BMW 320i, E200CGI or an audi A4. Does anyone know which brand gives the best fuel consumption?? For servicing, i know all will be expensive.. but is there a difference in cost b/w these 3?? (Generally, which will be more expensive in servicing?) Thanks
  15. due to sky high fuel price, have to switch over from Caltex to SPC to earn another 7% discount (Caltex 11% vs SPC 18%) but some friends told me SPC fuel quality is not as good as other world famous brands (Caltex, Shell, mobil etc), FC and performance both are discounted, and if long term using, might shorten engine lifespan is it??
  16. lai lai lai... we are 1/3 into the month of May. Oil price has risen to new heights.... so will the greedy petrol cartel raise fuel price in May?

    Fuel injector cleaner

    It's been debated 10000000x over but I feel it works ... What's your fav brand?
  20. Dear all, I just got back from a short vacation in Malaysia. I was at the Petronas before 2nd link. Paid the 100RM "deposit" and went to top up the fuel. But I was later inform by the cashier that she chose the 95 instead of 97 for me. So I went ahead with the yellow nozzle for the first time with no judgy eyes or repurcussion whatsoever despite many Malaysian and pump attendant around. Ever since I can remember, I was told that Singapore cars are NOT allowed to top up 95, minimally 97, from EVERYONE around me. So the qns is. Are Singaporean allowed to top up 95 fuel? I will ask the cashier the next time I go in. But for now, I guess this thread will be a good discussion lest many like me are misguided from hearsay. Money aside, base on my understanding, we should not mix different fuel type. On a unrelated note, this reminds me of the 5 monkeys 1 ladder social experiment.
  21. As above , let’s share your experience
  22. Let's see if your car is a petrol drinker anot. Best is to state car make and model. Sharing is caring! Currently driving a Suzuki Carry 1.3 for point A to point B.

    Shell fuel card

    I received 15000 points from KMC when I bought my new vehicle which translates to $540 fuel. I think BM on and off had this promo as well. Would like to maximize my points and just wondering how it works Am I able to get the full discount for credit cards when paying with points? E.g. HSBC/Citi gets 4% extra instant discount Hence if I pump $47, will I get 14% off i.e price of $40.42 and pay $40 by points and 42c by card, or are CC discounts ineligible when part-paying with points?

    Hi, May I know when to change the fuel filter??? For my previous car, it was 40K km. My current car is Toyota Axio. I called my PI appointed workshop(MBM) and was told 60K. I called Riverview and they told me 80K. I called Hanip and was told 50K. I went to Stamford and foreman told me no need to change at all. My mileage is now 39,800+ km and going for my 40K major servicing and not sure whether to change fuel filter. Please advise. Thks.
