#147315 Fiesta Zetec Mk8 Induction Kit???

Posted by Ryan9684 on 06 October 2011 - 05:04 PM

ah 61 plate is still a mk7, there is no mk8. Some people consider it a mk8 as they think of the 6.5 as the 7 but not many.

#144585 Should petrol stations show the amount of tax?

Posted by Ryan9684 on 18 September 2011 - 10:10 AM

I'm with Michael on this one, the day I start checking for price differences on petrol is the day I start taking the bus.

Its about 70 for a full tank in my car, if petrol was 5p dearer the price would go up by 2.50, my car isn't very economical so driving to the next petrol station would cost more in my time and using petrol in my tank so hardly a saving at all.

#114437 Fuel Economy Seems Terrible So Far

Posted by Ryan9684 on 16 February 2011 - 06:46 PM

Love this topic.

IMHO I think that most Fiesta owners are too embarrassed to admit that they have chosen a car with lousy MPG performance and exaggerate to hide their embarrassment..

I have had my 1.4 automatic titanium for 4,700 miles from new now...Wifes choice. We are still touring in Europe at speeds not exceeding 50MPG, using feather light touch on accelerator and very little braking, relying on road conditions and use of manual part of gearbox to slow the car down. Tyres are all checked daily and the car only has two people in and very little luggage.

Average speed on tour is 27 MPH and average MPG against petrol purchased is a miserable 37 MPG. Most driving is over 100 mile distances and on smooth, easy roads.

Sorry, but if you want a good MPG car then buy a Volkswagen.

If you want an average about town and country car that is easy to drive and cheap to maintain, buy a Fiesta.

I have come to like most of it but economically, a definite NO.

Swings and roundabouts but definitely lousy MPG.


I agree, if you can't get good MPG nobody can so they must be lying or making it up to save themselves from embarrassment :rolleyes:

From reading your first few posts I could more or less guarantee that we would end up with something like this.

You seem to have impossibly high standards - are any of the defects that you've mentioned actually on a skin panel?

I reckon that you'll have a hell of a time trying to reject the car after this long.

+1 ;)
