FORD FAIR – SILVERSTONE – 6TH AUGUST 2017
Join us on the Ford Owners Club stand at Ford Fair, Silverstone on Sunday 6th August 2017.
I have recently purchased a 2005 1.4Tdci and I am finding the mpg I am getting is very poor compared to the ford guide. I previously drove a 1.4 Petrol Zetec and was gettiong about 48 mpg on my journey to work which is mostly motorway and some a roads. The new car is getting about 55mpg at best. I am not driving this car any differently, I do not accelerate hard and keep to 70 mph. I wondered if anyone else had similar problems or knows why this is. Is there a reason why this is? Could there be a problem with my car? Also while doing 70mpg on motorway there is some vibration/movement in steering wheel. Is this normal? Thanks Mike
