Hi there guys, I have a MK1 Focus and I want to be able to read my current mpg. Is there a way to show this on the computer?

 

Currently my computer shows my overall mileage at the bottom and above that its some other number e.g. xxx.x (x being a number, e.g. 324.1). I thought that was the mpg but shouldnt it be displayed as xx.x?

 

Anyways, let me know. Cheers :)

Thats the total miles travelled below that the mileage not the mpg the mk1 does not have mpg on the computer or current mpg im afraid

It is possible to fit the computer to the mk1 but you need to check if the wrong is there. Pull out the centre dash vents and have a look for the plug. The computer sits on the triangle shape bit to the left of the dials.

That number is the trip mileage. You reset it to zero with the button on the speedo.

Cheers guys, I think ill leave it for now as I will be upgrading around September time. I noticed recently that my petrol top ups dosent last me as long as they did, anything I can do to improve it? Would engine oil be a problem?

Do you top up by the pound rather than by the Litre? That  would explain it :wacko:

Dont buy supermarket fuel it was recently proved shell fuel burns cleaner and gives at least 5mpg extra than the supermarket fuel
