      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.

  11. Philf1's Nitrous Blue Focus RS

    Yes but when I drive, let’s say more spiritedly, it drops to low 20’s but for my normal commuting I’m pretty happy with that. It’s definitely got better than when I first got the car. Sent from my iPhone
  12. Philf1's Nitrous Blue Focus RS

    God I never thought this would cause so much argument. The trip and average fuel were both reset to zero for both tests. I then drove for almost two weeks covering 426 then reset again and drove 427 miles. The fuel consumption was basically the same 29. The amount of fuel left in the tank and therefore miles to empty are not relevant I’m not even sure how much was in the tank when I started each time because that’s not what I was testing. If I’d wanted to test how many miles to a tank of fuel it would have been relevant. However I know that a tank gives in the region of 220 miles on average. Hope this helps to explain Sent from my iPhone
  13. Philf1's Nitrous Blue Focus RS

    The miles travelled is top left so 426 and 427 so both the same distance. That’s why the comparison is valid. The figure in bottom right you refer to is miles to empty. As I never run to empty but fill up anywhere from 1/2 down but never the same this figure is irrelevant in this test. Sent from my iPhone

    Yes actually got slightly better by 0.1 mile with stop start switched off. Sent from my iPhone
  15. Philf1's Nitrous Blue Focus RS

    Thought I’d do a not very scientific comparison of the stop start system on the RS. Two weeks with stop start operating and two weeks with it switched off. Both including a reasonably long journey and both with normal driving to and from work. Results are a little surprising See if you can work out which is which Sent from my iPhone
