Hi All,

Just check with you guys, many of them said the RS turbo engine is very sensitive with the engine oil. Normally my ride will be about 4-5 months and below 10k the maintenance (spanner) light show. I had asked my service man he did mention that this is command. So wanted to ask are your follow the oil life span indicated to send for servicing?
Im first timer to get RS Turbo car like this. So far I like the Jade RS with smooth ride and powerful drive when turbo charge in.

Ur one is pi or Kah motor? The on car maintenance 10000km can use as guide which is quite accurate as it tally with you trip travelled. This is only correct whenever after ur service and u reset to 10000km. Coz most workshop is either 10k km or 6mths whichever earlier. Hence u may service b4 10k km. Btw there are trip A and B. Choose trip B if u use trip A to monitor ur fuel consumption for each tank. Just remember to reset everytime after service. Hope this help.

It depends on your accelerator behaviour. The harsher you treat it, the faster you need to service and the lower the milage. I think the whole conputer milage service thing is marketing gimmick although it makes sense to replace oil under harsher conditions (high rpm cycles) due to engine oil breakdown.. but i will stick to it for warranty reasons. New civic has the same system.

Add on this trip maintenance is common on most honda car even old one like 2009 jazz or fit. Normally every 5k and 7.5k i will pull out e drip stick and use a tissue to see the colour and smell. If burnt and dark brown i will change. Depend on the type of Engine oil use. Like those budget turtle, carlube, motormech, shell w40 breakdown ard 6-7k and mobil 1 gold extended mileage w30 ard 9k still good. This is base on my last honda ride too.

HI,

Mine is from KAH and they will reset it every servicing. I guess harsher we accelerate the faster maintenance will need and before your reach your actual 10000 KM the spanner light will on till you send for service and they reset for you. Also if you always caught in terrible jam or drive more on street, the engine oil life span will be faster. So I guess I will change more regularly then. Thanks for everyone advise.

So far how do your find the Jade performance? I drove more street so the fuel will around 12.5-13 km/L

Bro,
Actually I didn't reset it but after completed the servicing at KAH they will reset it. I guess is more on the computerize system they have. Also I ask the service executive that advisable to service the car in 6 months interval period and he told me that as turbo engine is more sensitive, when the engine oil used longer it become more sticky and this might affect the engine too. So better service the car according to the engine oil life span indicator. I not sure how true it is. May be some of your friend who has car with turbo engine has great advice before.

I was told by my SE don't pump 92, minimal 95 RON for better feul economy and acceleration characteristics.
for full tanks, only tried 95 from caltex so far. able to get average 13.8km/l max with weekends using expressway more.
60%-70% street / 40%-30% highway (based on time)

Another PI white Jade owner here for almost a year. Interior accessories can be sourced from taobao, just be aware that china is left-hand drive while HK is right-hand drive so have to get those suitable for RH drive Jade. Anyone has idea which model of K&N drop in filter is suitable?
