  1. fuel economy

    My 2009 focus Zetec s 1.8 petrol holds 55 Ltrs I think, I that up to the filler cap ?? Anyway from brim full I can do 163 MLS easily under half a tank. but I'm not sure if I should base it on 55 ltrs or say 60 because it's brim full ??

  5. dashcam/cigerette plug

    I'm looking into getting one myself,my local Halfords are so busy they can't fit mine at the moment but they said if I buy one and use the sig lighter I can come back and have it hard wired yo the fuse box if I wanted too. Having the cam straight to the fuse box is the best way,no dangling wires and you haven't got to touch the cam except for changeing the settings
  6. Very poor mpg

    Diesels need to be worked,they like motorway/duel carriageway driving. Is it true my 1.8 petrol (09) need an average amount of motorway work because apparently 1.8 don't like short journeys either (which I'm not surprised). ??

    On my previous car the first time the cambelt got changed was about 79 odd thousand. You won't hurt leaving it for longer if it's only on 55k. Can't remember prices though

    If you do have the car get as much driving done as possible whilst you're still in your warranty,that way if anything goes wrong they've got to put it right
