      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

  1. 1.6 Tdci Fuel Economy

    I have a 56 plate Focus Zetec estate I work shifts so its used in all weathers and times of the day I live in a busy town not a city. My Focus has never dipped below 50 mpg around here and on runs I can get 58-62mpg at normal motor way driving and once on a long run I got 70 mpg (which I worked out to make sure ).
  2. 1.6 Tdci Fuel Economy

    I have a56 plate 1.6 tdci estate and around town (I work 3 shifts) I get no less than 50 to the gallon normally 52, on a long run of 100 miles or more at speed limits with a car full of kids and camping stuff I do 60ish but once coming back from Wales on winding roads I had her reading 72 mpg I have filled up and worked out the mpg and apart from the Wales one can confirm the other 2 readings. Before this we had a petrol 1.2 punto and at best this would do 48mpg on a run. So I would say that diesel for me is better with a bigger car and more mpg.
