    I have just done my first oil change today on my milkfloat the mileage now is 6070 Miles. A few pictures from this evenings quick oil change.

    First remove the engine splash guard which is held with JIS screws and two plastic tabs on the rear

    Spray all screws and two plastic lock with penetrating fluid and soak for 2 minutes,The JIS screws

    All the screws are on the side but these two are at the rear


    The removed inspection cover

    You can see the oil filter and oil sump nut

    The oil did need changing but still clean.

    The removed old filter is German / Japanese filter made in Japan..

    Comparison with the French made oil filter sold here in the UK. The Japanese filter has smaller 7 return holes where the French has 5 larger holes.

    Side by side Mahle Tennex versus the Purflux filter

    I would say personally the French filter with its criss cross paper filter pattern has more surface area then this German shyte. So on comparison the Purflux IMHO is the better filter with superior filter coverage and density.

    Next task to prime the new purflux with oil it takes 200ml to reach saturation point.

    All this time the oil has been draining cleaned up the oil filter area
    Then fitted a new sump washer and nipped the sump bolt to 39NM and marked for my QC then proceed to fit the primed oil filter nipped to 12Nm with torque wrench

    Clean the splash guard and fit it back on the car. Coating the screws and the Spire Clip (U Clip) with penetrating fluid and make sure you don't over tighten them otherwise the clips and guard take a hammering and things break.


    Get the Honda Green oil ready

    Get the funnel in place and pour 3.4 litres as the oil filter is already primed. Honda Green oil is not green in colour :Smile:

    Nicely done CJ.
    I'd give it a 'A-' but could be an 'A*' if you rotate the oil filter pictures. :spiteful:

    300 miles since the oil change and its has dramatically increased the MPG and it a lot smoother too. Anyone still doubts the Honda Hybrids cannot achieve their official MPG needs to see this.
