Dunlop Formula D05 review Vol.2

In this blog entry, I'm writing a report after using the Dunlop Formula D05 for 3 months.  This Dunlop Formula D05 is the latest thread (flower in Manglish term) design freshly launched early March.  The threadwear is 340, Temperature A, Traction A, Made in Malaysia.  I got fresh tyres Manufactured week 1015.


Three months have passed since I bought the tyres.  I am very happy with the tyres.  It's ALL ROUNDER all Weather tyres.  I took the Waja a long distance trips.  It's Kalumpung Training centre using trunk roads.  The tyres took the challenge, gave me a comfortable ride over all terrains.  I'm also happy with the low tyre noise, it's very quiet in most terrains compared to my previous tyres Pirelli P6.


Also, it went through recent floods in Shah Alam with no aquaplaning, it stayed planted on the road.  

Here's Singapore's review on this tyres:

Without further ado, let's proceed to logbook...

Mileage at tyre installation: 176,747km - 27 March 2015

Mileage today: 179,722km -  29 June 2015.


Mileage covered: 2,975km...

FUEL CONSUMPTION SO FAR:

BEST: 9.35km/l
WORST: 5.93km/l
Average: 7.6km/l.  

(Note, my lower than usual Fuel Consumption is nothing to do with this tyres.  Rather, it's the Engine oil.  FC deteriorates after Castrol Magnatec Oil Semi-synthetic change.  Previously using Liqui Moly MOS/2 10W/40 Semi Syn.  Previous best 11.8km/l, Worst: 7.6km/l, Previous Average 9.35km/l.

Note to self, Going back to Liqui Moly MOS/2 10W/40 very soon.)

My rating so far: 8.5/10.  Not enough mileage to warrant an accurate write up.  I shall review this tyres again in 3 months time...  See you in 28 September 2015.

International Engine of the Year 2015 Award - BMW i8 Powertrain wins

BMW i8 Powertrain wins the International Engine of the Year 2015 Award.

The sophisticated plug-in hybrid powertrain of the BMW i8 sports car has been rated the top engine in this year’s International Engine of the Year Awards, the official award of British publication Engine Technology International. The i8’s powertrain consists of a turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine that’s mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and drives the rear wheels, plus a single electric motor that drives the front wheels. Together they produce a peak output of 362 horsepower, enough to accelerate the i8 from 0-62 mph in 4.4 seconds, yet when required to the car can return upwards of 76 mpg.

Tie-up with Suzuki can revive Proton, says Mustapa

FLASHBACK, 3 days ago: PROTON SIGNS MOU Strategic Partnership with Suzuki Japan
http://english.astroawani.com/business-news/proton-signs-mou-strategic-partnership-suzuki-japan-62618

KUALA LUMPUR: International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Mustapa Mohamed has expressed optimism Proton's partnership with Suzuki would revive the national car maker's fortunes.


"Suzuki has wide experience in India where it dominates the compact car market," he told reporters after his keynote address at the 19th Malaysian Banking Summit on Thursday.

Proton, which has never done research and development on compact cars, could use Suzuki's expertise, he said, adding under the National Automotive Policy announced in January last year, it would be good for Proton to identify strategic foreign partners.

On Monday, Proton signed a memorandum of understanding and a licence agreement with Suzuki to form a long-term strategic partnership, with the possibility of developing a new compact car model.
The agreement would give Proton access to Suzuki's models, platforms, powertrain and automotive technology. - Bernama
