  1. Now I'm getting some miles on the clock the economy is starting to get better. This is the first time I've seen over 700 miles tank range on the on-board computer.
  2. I can recommend a black background, look good...
  3. Took a quick snap while I was at my local model flying club as the car was clean. Not bad for a phone... ;)
  4. You're right, my exhaust is on the right. Got my overlays from here.
  5. Mine already has an exhaust tip by the way. I also fitted some of the Ford badge overlays, they look great don't they...
  6. That explains it then, I make do with my trusty tomtom,
  7. I'm liking the bigger screen in yours, must be a later model than mine...
  8. Not bad but how about this for a 2.0 auto?
  9. I'm curious how many miles do you get to a tank?
  10. Fit a 2.0 engine? :D
  11. I too am an eco champion according to the car as you might expect. The car computer is currently telling me I'm averaging 52 mpg and with a bit of maths... The 60 litre tank @ 4.55 l/g gives me 13.19 gallons and @ 52 mpg that's 685 miles to a tank. Like I said earlier I can get over 700 miles to a tank if I try and just how people are only getting 30-40 mpg I really don't know, not my idea of driving economically...
  12. Bigger more powerful engines aren't necessarily less economical if driven carefully. I never need to rev it much past 2000 rpm due to the increased torque.
  13. Interesting thread, I just thought I'd chip in at this point and say I can get 700 miles to a tank if I drive in full hypermiling mode but 600 plus is normal. Bear in mind that I have a 2.0 auto I think this is quite acceptable. I took a photo of last time I filled up for you to see the evidence. :)
  14. Thanks for the kind welcome... :)
  15. Hello all, I currently drive a Focus Zetec S TDCi and it's my 7th Ford... Richard.
