Not long to go now...

 

Well it will feel like an eternity haha! Should be delivered I think to my dealer around the 18th if all goes well. Don't know when I'll be able to get it though due to my work and how long it takes to get ready. But my dealer has one in the showroom so I'll pop along on Saturday and take a look to see it in the flesh for the first time  :D think it's a red one though. I'm half tempted to arrange a test drive in it but not sure if they will do that if it's a showroom car? I know my dealer himself is getting an ST which will be used as a demo.

 

Oh and those photos above, so THAT'S how they have done the engine temperature read out, cool  B)

I'd just filled the ST2 up with fuel & reset the MPG counter, then drove it from Sheffield to Nottingham on the M1 (circa 28 miles)
I changed gear when the RPMs got 1500, I only used light pressure on the right pedal and stuck to 65-70MPH.
Also it might have something to with, that the journey is predomanently downhill from Junct 31 - Junct 28

Picked up all the leaflets about Shell's V Power today when I filled up, may very well give it a go in the ST. Also I am going to see an ST in the flesh TOMORROW!!!!  :D  :D  :D  :D

 

My dealer has one but for the showroom only so no test drive, boooo. And they only have it till Monday. But I am incredibly intrigued to see this front end  :unsure: hope I like it haha. Think it's a red ST2. Also want to check my bum fits those lush Recaro's hahahahaha  :lol:

Isn't BP Ultimate stupidly expensive though? Is there a decent Shell diesel or is that stupid money too? >_>

BP Ultimate is the most expensive of the premium fuels I think, but to fill a tank on V Power is like 3 quid extra or thereabouts I think. You can get V Power diesel, no idea how much.

haha, yeah I found that my car ran smoother on Shell over Tesco plus the fact I literally drive right pass it on my way to and from work helps, that's why I use it. I did use BP Ultimate for a while but saw no really power difference but it was more economical. I haven't used V Power before but I do know it's the one that gives the most power gains if any.

I only have 1 BP near me and it's stupidly priced >_> I don't want to pay much more than £1.45 a litre for fuel, so stuff it if it costs more lol.

Thats approx £6.49 per gallon so you would have to pay almost £13 to get two gallons in your tank to put it in perspective

The new Shell V-Power Nitro+ (which replaces V-Power) is usually 8p more a litre for diesel.

Cost me £58 from the red light. When standard unleaded was at 1.39 / ltr.
I'm getting 40.4mpg with 1400 miles on the clock now after just 3 weeks ownership.
That's mostly motorway driving and the odd - frequent blast up / down a dual carriageway.
Range trip states I'll get 380-410 miles from a tank, but I never let it let that low.
Which is about the same as my previous Mk7 fiesta S1600, which was a non turbo 120ps 1.6 petrol
