LONGTERMER 1: Update 12: Ford Telstar 2.0i GHIA

Longtermer #1, Update 12: Ford Telstar Ghia 2.0i4 16v

In this blog entry, I am updating my Ford Telstar i4 Ghia. This is the 12th update. What's up in the month of June?

Well, nothing much to highlight. I’m glad to say this is a problem free month. The FIRST time 2009, the Telstar did not giving me any problems. Yes, NO visit to workshop this month.

One interesting aspect to take note is different Fuel Brand gives different mileage. Eg. Shell and BHP only gave me 150km per RM50, But ESSO and MOBIL gave 200km +/- per RM50 consistently. Also, Power wise, V-Power is the most powerful but Mobil can Challenge V-power , cheaper and more economical as well.

As I typed this, the Telstar only done 800km +/-. Why?
It’s because my dad’s in Vietnam for 2 weeks, hence his Civic FD2 is driven by me. Without further ado, let's proceed to Logbook:


Year of manufactured: December 1998 (registered January 1999)
Purchase price: RM42,000 (Aug 2005)
Current value: RM15,000 (As at January 2009)
Depreciation per year (averaged): RM6,750
Mileage last month: 143,678km

Mileage now: 144,444km
Fuel consumption (so far):
BEST: 9km/l (22 April 2009)
WORST: 5.9km/l (November 2008)

TODAY, As at 29 June,

Expenses (this month)
1) Petrol (RM90 only this month) and toll charges.

Before I go, here's a parting shot above...

End of Update, thanks for having the patience to read it...
