Consumption of 1 liter of oil per 250 km – is this normal? Toyota Camry with a mileage of 483 thousand km was disassembled in the USA and they were surprised at the state of the engine

In the United States, the owner of a 2009 Toyota Camry with 300,000 miles (483,000 km) decided to disassemble his car’s 2AZ-FE engine (2.4 L gasoline engine) to understand the cause of high oil consumption – in fact, every 250 km of run “flew” 1 liter of oil. As a result of the disassembly, unexpected conclusions were drawn.

The culprit of increased oil consumption is piston rings. But if the owner had participated in a recall campaign in which Toyota just changed these rings, then most likely his Camry could drive the same amount without any problems with oil consumption, because if you do not take into account the cylinders, the engine was in perfect condition.

Nevertheless, even in its current state, the repair is justified, since only the “short block” – the cylinder block, crankshaft, connecting rods, liners, pistons and piston rings – has to be replaced. Given the overall very good condition of the motor, this sedan (equipped, by the way, with a manual transmission, which is a rarity for the United States) will be able to drive more than one hundred thousand kilometers. This is another example confirming the high reliability of Toyota cars.

One of the largest retail chains in India Reliance Retail

Major Indian retailer Reliance Retail has implemented support for digital rupee payments in one of its Freshpik stores and plans to expand this experience to all formats of the network.

One of the largest retail chains in India, Reliance Retail, began accepting digital rupees as part of a pilot project.

V Subramaniam, chief executive of Reliance Retail, noted that the adoption of a central bank digital currency (CBDC) is in line with the firm’s vision of providing “choice” to Indian consumers. The executive also emphasized that this initiative gives the firm the opportunity to offer an alternative payment method in its stores.

To make a purchase, customers only need to scan a QR code.

“Indians will get another efficient and secure alternative payment method” — said the top manager.

The deployment of CBDC was made possible through collaboration with ICICI Bank, Kotak Mahindra Bank and Innovative Technologies.

Plans for the country’s CBDC were laid out by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) on October 7, 2022. The country’s central bank has identified various factors, including the potential positive and negative impact of the digital rupee on the country. According to the RBI, one of the motivations for creating a CBDC is to reduce the operating costs of managing cash.

It seems that Samsung took into account the problems with the Galaxy S22 line of smartphones and did not repeat them in new devices when it comes to cooling systems.

Well-known insider Ice Universe has published a visual comparison of the approximate sizes of cooling systems in each flagship of the past generation and the new one.

As you can see, all systems have become noticeably larger, and in the younger model, instead of a graphite film, an evaporation chamber has appeared.

Whether this is enough for the new products not to overheat and not throttling so much, tests will show, but the performance, as we can already see, is really good. Recall that today we also saw a comparison of the Galaxy S22 Ultra and S23 Ultra cameras.

Ice Universe was the first to accurately talk about the new trend for smartphones with waterfall screens, about the notch in the iPhone X, about the new design of the iPhone 14 and about Samsung’s 200-megapixel image sensor.
