      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. Ford Fiesta 1.4 Tdci 2005 - Mpg

    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
