32psi all round normal carriage std wheels, fully loaded 36psi front 40psi rear. However from my mondeo days you'll find that 34psi all round will give a better ride and slightly better handling without damaging the tyres.

taken from the tyre chart on the rear of the fuel flap the recomendations are

1-3 passengers 33psi front, 30psi rear

4-5 passengers 35psi front, 41psi rear

Well they're only recommendations after all. As long as you're somewhere in the ballpark you'll be fine
