Just fitted a new air filter the old one was black, hopefully that might improve my MPG all be it ever so slightly ;)

i'd go with the black armrest. never thought to search for one of those. Miss mine out my leon cupra and wouldnt mind putting another in my focus!!

Hmmm if the air filter was that dirty then it might pay to replace to plugs too along with a nice drop of decent oil and oil filter. Maybe even change the fuel filter.

I bought the car from arnold clark and was told it had received a g71 which is i think the most basic of services, maybe new oil and filter at best.

thats oil and filter change and a general check over basically better than nowt really at least the oil is done or should be check the dipstick should be nice and gold coloured get the plugs from ford that way youll get the right ones for it and they are actually cheaper than halfords for them same with leads the air filter wouldnt have been helping the breathing much so it would effect the mpg a bit best way to improve mpg is always to service the engine regularly i usually check my air filter every 4 months or so sometimes earlier and make sure the front wheels arent sticky sorry brakes quick jack up and spin them by hand and youll know should spin freely with no resistance as dragging brakes knock the mpg simple cheap and easy
