      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. New Fiesta Economy ***Poss Rant Alert***

    ALSO STANDING UP FOR FIESTA'S ECONOMY!!! Having read the posts I have to say I'm very suprised at the MPG you lot are getting. I have a Sea Grey Zetec S 1.6TDCi with street pack (including 17" wheels and tyres). My daily commute is a mix of dual carriageway and town driving. Overall mileage is approx 1200 miles. Overall economy is 62MPG, falling to about 56 if i drive more "enthusiastically". In town I'm getting 54MPG easy. Even with my non eco wheels and tyres. The posts seem to show you guys have low mileage. Remember that all engines need time to loosen up, and this is why the MPG improves with age. Sure, I haven't reached 67MPG, but then I don't live in a lab. Perfectly happy with the above though!
