LONGTERMER 2: Volume 10: Honda Civic 2.0IVTEC

Longtermer #2: Volume 10: Honda Civic 2.0IVTEC

This is 10th update of Longtermer #2, Honda Civic 2.0iVTEC FD2. Sent the Civic for 15000km service. Not much, just oil change and engine draining and other Preventive maintenance service.

Took the car to Putrajaya (for friend's wedding) and back with 1/3 fuel left (4 "little" bar left). On the way back only refilled at Puchong BHP station (1st time filling BHP petrol since 2006). Man, the fuel is POWERFUL. I dared to say it's AS POWERFUL AS V-Power. I only filled RM20 (11.111L). It's good for 120km before the next fill up (10.8km/L => LESS MILEAGE THAN SHELL).

One week later I even more "gung ho", last 2 bar, managed to drove from Section 17, Petaling Jaya to Pavilion, KL AND BACK. At that time, upon reaching home the Fuel level: 0 bar left and orange warning light's on. Only fill up the next morning.

Without further ado, let's proceed to LOGBOOK.

Year of manufactured: 2008 (Duh!)
Current Value: RM113,000
Purchase price: RM126,000 (less NCB)
Mileage when bought: 0008km

Mileage last month: 14244km.

Mileage NOW: 15069km
Average mileage per month: 1507km
Best: 13.75km/L December 2008 (recorded by my dad, fuel: Petronas)
WORST: 10.5km/L (April 2009) => BHP

Interesting observation: 33L worth of petrol only good for 400km (12.1km/L) when I drove the car. Why? It's because of my "Heavy-footed" nature. BUT I tend to kickdown and woke up the i-VTEC a bit too often especially during traffic light start. Note: It's 40:60 city and highway driving.


1) 15000km preventive maintenance service. RM170. Above, picture taken @ the Service Centre.

2) Petrol, parking and toll charges

Here's a parting shot before I sign off...

AN ORIGINAL JEFF LIM Production. That's all folks, thanks for having the patience to read this.
