    In your fuel tank, there is an important device called fuel pump, which sends the fuel from the tank to the engine. The fuel pump relies on the petrol in the tank to keep it cool and lubricated. Running the car with a low tank means that the pump isnít staying as lubricated as it should and is at risk of overheating. The obvious downside is premature failure of the pump.

    Fuel pump is pretty expensive to repair, let alone replace.
    I do it only for the first full tank on all my cars. For my Altis, it was the initial lit up of the low fuel signal. For the Ioniq, since it has a mileage count down...

    By the way, the top up was 42.3L with 2.7L remaining at 0km

    Thanks to Honda Malaysia there is going to be a revival of the affordable Hybrids segment after its demise due to the discontinuation of the duty-free incentive in end 2013 for such cars. The relaunch cars come with new technology too.

    The previous tax break ended in Dec 2013 is for imported Hybrids but limited to engine capacity of 2000 cc.

    This time the tax break is for EEV (Energy Efficient Vehicles) or Hybrids (pure Hybrids or Plug-ins) which must be locally assembled with no limit on engine capacity. But from 2014 till now this segment sold here is limited to high-end models only. So, with Honda's latest initiative the affordable Hybrid is once again available.
