    Fuel additive performance boost

    I know plenty about "the subject" thanks and is exactly why I have NEVER filled up with "the cheapest fuel available"! (and I wouldn't touch a diesel with a barge pole either...) Read up on them (after market fuel additives). Most proper tests show that they have a negligible effect on a well maintained and serviced vehicle. By "negligible", I mean an ongoing "repeatable cost benefit" when you use the stuff regularly. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    Did they tell you exactly what "fuel additive" it was?

    Recall

    I take back my last sentence! It would seem they've improved the search criteria since I last accessed it; which is a good thing.

    Recall

    Good advice! The gov.uk one is frequently wrong! (or generic instead of being vehicle/VIN specific)
  6. Found the page... https://www.toyota-europe.com/service-and-accessories/my-toyota/bluetooth-compatibility Try that page Dee. Follow the instructions for your head unit type etc...
  7. There used to be a matrix in pdf form on Toyota's UK website showing tested compatibility with a range of phones but I can't find it now... As I recall, from iPhone 4 onwards, the Touch unit was not 100% compatible in various ways but mainly as regards translating text messages etc...
  8. Yes Graham but was that with the iPhone X connected to the car or the iPhone SE (sounds like you had the iPhone X connected to the car the way you describe it which is not how Dee has it...). Nevertheless, your suggestion sounds like a good one to start with...
  9. Ok. Supplementary question: is this the first time you have tried it with this car/phone combination?
  10. I am so tempted to say "easy, buy an Android phone!" but that would be being frivolous lol! No, as Scott said, it is going to depend on which type of head unit you have. The Yaris that I bought in October 2014 had a Touch 2 unit which didn't have such a problem (with an Android phone anyway - I won't give Apple products house room - overpriced and underspec'd).
  11. I'll endorse the Brodit mounts also. They are excellent. I have one for my Google Pixel 2 XL. Perfect fit and installation. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk

    An excellent point and one which I missed completely! 😉

    Just to put things in perspective, 22 years ago I used to own a 2.0L stonker of a car which had the incredible SR20DE engine in it that was capable of motorway cruising all day at 70+mph whilst still returning average tank to tank mpg figures of 42-45mpg, could accelerate from 0-60 in a little over 7.0 secs and crank up to a true 135mph (on the track) and still keep going up! ...and that was just a bog standard naturally aspirated Otto cycle ICE. Given the BMW i8s, Teslas etc of this world, why can't Toyota come up with a bad boy Hybrid to add to the competition? They already know the technology from endurance racing so why not build a (tamer) road version? I would definitely be up for one of those! 😍😎

    The GRMN Yaris is not a Hybrid and my understanding from various press releases was that the GR Sport would have a Hybrid version where the accent would be on power rather than the economy. What I would have expected from that was that it would have an uprated battery installed with ECU mapping that would result in more aggressive use of electric power ADDED to the ICE power when needed (in a similar way to higher spec Lexus Hybrid models). The actual result is nothing more than a cosmetic exercise even if the uprated suspension is welcome (which could have been made available as an option pack on any of the current models anyway...). I hope they don't end up doing the same kind of thing with the Hybrid versions of the upcoming new Corollas... That may see me leaving Toyota behind and looking elsewhere.

    Colour me extremely disappointed! One would have expected the GR Sport Yaris to have some extra power over the standard Hybrid powerplant! 😟 It doesn't even have the spec of the Icon Tech for goodness sakes! Would have expected at least a different state of tune leaning towards more power rather than economy...
