KevinKevin replied to Jacko9966's topic in Ford Focus ClubMy new focus 1.8 Zetec does the same thing. Especially when you've got a cars full. Acceleration is jerky between 2000-3000. It's only 8 months old. What could be wrong with it?
KevinKevin replied to cblfc's topic in Ford Focus ClubI've got the 1.8. And I'm getting, according to the computer, 31mpg. I'm meant to be getting 28 according to most sites. Your 1.6 should be doing better than mine shouldn't it as I have the bigger engine and extra power?
I've got the 1.8 Petrol. 125bhp. New focus. 58 plate. Amazing power but CRAP on fuel. Mine's doing around 20MPG around town. And that's economy drive. Highest gear possible without labouring the engine. But Cardiff is a busy town so... that could be the problem. Motorway it's AMAZING if you keep it at 70 or under. But town is a no go for the petrols. The 1.6 will be a bit better, but not much, the 2.0 may be worse. Get a diesel. 1.8 diesel maybe your best bet.
