### 27000km best fuel usage 11.4 L/100 no joy from Mazda Aust. Put 285/70 17 tyres 14.3L/100

Putting different tyres on will alter the accuracy of the speedo and the recording of distance, so I wouldn't pay much attention the fuel economy. For example, a single revolution of the axle will remain constant regardless of the wheel size, but the revolution of the wheel versus distance traveled will vary depending on the diameter of the tyre fitted. If the new tyre was, say 10 cms circumference larger, then the car will travel 10cms further each full revolution (that is 100 meters every 1000 turns. If your speedo sensor is determined by the number of revolutions of the axle, then every 10,000 turns you will have travelled a kilometer more than with the old tyre size (less if the circumference is smaller). The figures you give convert to (UK) 25 mpg dropping to 20 mpg with the new tyres. Does seem poor consumption figures for a small car, but if a big engined truck that might be acceptable. All depends on how you drive it as well.

### 1995 Toyota Camry Harmonic Balance

A little risky. If it comes apart on the trip you will need a tow. Yes, the harmonic balancer does occasionally break, and require replacement. It shouldn't take a shop very long to replace it. Just the belt is removed, the crankshaft pullley bolt is removed, and the old pulley pulled off, and a new one put on. I wouldn't chance it for 700 miles, but...it's up to you. Good luck.

### What number do I put in for wheel size 700x23 on a blackburn atom 4 cycle computer

You don't want to guess. Every tire varies from the nominal size to some extent. Measure one wheel revolution on the ground in millimeters and use that number. With 4-digit accuracy it seems silly to ballpark the measurement.

### I put in a new battery. I went to get it inspected and it failed. The inspector said I needed to drive it about a hundred miles before the computer will reset. Then bring it back and have it inspected...

Once disconnected from the battery the computer needs to go through a drive cycle during which it does internal testing of the sensors. Generally that only takes a trip of about twenty or so miles. The inspector probably told you one hundred just to be on the safe side. Most times, you don't need to make the trip all at once but over the period of about a week, driving normally, with a few longer trips mixed in, everything should re-set.

### Humminbird 798 has erratic gps speed readouts at slow speeds between 1 and 3 miles per hour. Speeds bounce up and down between 0.1 and 3.0 mph even when sitting in the boat in my driveway!

I had the same problem. I talked to 3 different technicians on the Humminbird support line about it. All 3 of them confirmed that this is how their technology works. They ping the GPS satellites continuously, and at low speeds the GPS accuracy causes the speed measurement to fluctuate wildly. It smooths right out when you go faster than 3 MPH, since your boat moves far enough at that speed that the GPS accuracy is no longer a problem.

Seems like they could easily overcome this issue by averaging GPS readings over a longer time period at low speed (i.e. give the boat enough time to move far enough to eliminate the accuracy issues), but they don't do that.

It was a big issue for me since I do a lot of trolling at low speed and need an accurate speed indicator, so I returned the product and bought a Lowrance instead. Lowrance doesn't have this issue.

not trying to be rude but do be sure the wheel is tight. a build up of corrosion on the wheel or hub could cause the wheel not to set n lug studs correctly. that would cause a knock noise and will shake the wheel
