    FINALLY, I did another mod lol. This time a CS Engine Mount. I borrowed a pair of ramps from a friend and it was easy. The hardest part is the pop clips for the under tray lol. After I pulled the oem mount I applied some light pressure to it and I cannot believe how much flex is engineered...

  13. What is the better fuel for Skyactive engine (E20 or E10)?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Discussion
    As I learned from the instruction book, the Skyactive engine must use octane number 95 or higher. E20 is much cheaper(in my country, Thailand). E20 has about 97-98 octane number and higher than gasohol 95 (E10). I wonder that E20 which has higher octane number and cheaper should be the...
