  4. Sorry for the lateness of the reply, I got 42.5mpg returning from Bexhill to Essex, around town it's 28-30mpg, I'm not too worried, and if you keep worrying about how much fuel you use, then you don't enjoy what your driving 😀 Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  5. I've also checked, although I have the same rear as yours, it is the towing eye cover. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app

  7. As promised some piccies of my new Kuga Titanium Sport This replaced my previous Kuga Titanium Terry Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  8. Collected my new Kuga Titanium Sport yesterday, had a few extras fitted, including 19" alloys, in Magnetic, and it's the petrol version. I'm really happy with it, and no worries about poxy DPF's, and regens anymore, oh and it is so smooth. I'll post some piccies later. Sent from my iPod touch using Ford OC
  9. My Titanium is going, to be replaced with the Titanium Sport, in magnetic, with 19"s plus extras, collecting around the middle of April. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  10. Afraid I don't know, just that an 'older' sensor had been fitted at the factory, and a 'newer' one had to be fitted, I was told Ford had their 'techies' looking into it, and found the problem by sheer luck, otherwise I'd be very p**** off by now. It's now been 8 months, it's still fine, and has gone through its own 'regen' a couple of times with no problems (touching wood). The dealer/service department was Rates at Grays, Essex.
  11. Was it full of flat spots before fitting the 'box'? I have the 140ps and achieved 49.3 mpg, so I'm happy with that (67 mile mixed) But my average is around the 44mpg.
  12. Just had a look on their website, seems quite good actually, I was thinking of the cheap end of tat, not at this realistic price for the 'box', keep us posted eh. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  13. I'd be vary careful about these things off eBay, good in the short run, but could damage the engine etc over time, only what I've heard. Apart from that, good luck with it. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
  14. Hi all, I hope this tip for regenerating the DPF on low mileage Kuga's with the 140ps engine helps towards maintaining a healthy DPF, i say 140ps, as this is the engine I have, may help on others also. When driving, you can usually tell a DPF REGEN is on the way, as the engine heats up rapidly, of course you carry on driving, job done, but what do I do if it is still on regen mode when I get to work/home? you can tell, if the fans under the bonnet are working to keep the engine cool whilst going through this process, instead of just switching off, open the bonnet, get back in and get the revs around the 1700 mark, and hold it around this number, after a certain amount of minutes, the fans shut down, ending the regen naturally, bring revs back to tick over, then switch off. I have found with some vans we use, that they have to be forced to regen by the driver, and with bonnet open, automatically Rev about the 2000 mark, so this tip may work, I'm not a technician. If someone else comes back with a better way, that's great. And my Kuga does get a good blast about once a month, other then that it's local driving. Still loving it.

  15. Yep, I had one, took a hit on finance and now have a Kuga, haven't looked back since, don't even wince on the money I lost, getting the Kuga was worth the pain. I had the EcoSport for 3 months. Sent from my iPad using Ford OC mobile app
