Hope this helps
When stopped by the police they will check the weight plate on your car which on the Mondeos is situated on the drivers door pillar. there are 4 weights on there in KGs you take the two top weights and subtract the smaller one from the other. the weight you are left with is the legal maximum weight your car can tow. if the fully laden weight of your van is less than this you are legal. this 85% of your kerbweight is just a caravan club recomendation and not what the police will look for
hope this helps.
