  7. New battery.

    Hi, Thanks for your answer.The battery i was going to get is a Duracell DA62H advanced from eurocarparts, but after what you have said i don't think it would work. The bosch battery they have is a S5 but it's 63a and 610a but that might be a bit to power full for the car. Cheers.

  9. Fuel gauge problem.

    Quick question,does anyone think there is a problem with my fuel gauge or sender. I only put 45 ltrs in and the gauge went from empty (nearly) to full. Thanks in advance...
  10. Fuel gauge problem.

    Thanks guys, the manual and i was told there is a 55 ltr tank on the focus's. Problem i have is on a 90 mile trip, (according to the gauge) i'm using 3 galls of fuel. Which i find a bit extreme as i hardly go over 60 mph... I know the gauges are nothing to rely on, but the clock show i'm getting 46 mpg. When i topped up it was to the first click on the nozzle Thanks again for any help.

  13. Fuel gauge faulty ??

    Guys,What is your thought on this.I filled the tank up,then drove the car down to when the gauge showed just over half full. So went to fill it up again to full tank,but it only took 18 ltrs. Thanks in advance..
