In Topic: Mk 7 1.6 Tdci (95Bhp) Mpg Issues, Anyone Else?

the mpg improves significantly following its first service when the ECU is reprogrammed to take into account the engine wear. mine went from about 55mpg to 62mpg within a day

also, the 5 speed gearbox isnt best suited to the motorway - but then the fiesta isn't really designed to be a long distance cruiser. i find i get the same economy on the motorway or on the A roads, but the A roads are much more fun :)

i love my 1.6 TDCi, mainly for the economy tho.

also, if you buy it from a ford retail group dealer rather than a franchised one, in my experience, they treat you a bit better, in general

was your last one from a FRG dealer?

best kept to oneself :lol:

but no, the tweeters wont go off if you put back speakers on, assuming you have the speakers to fit (you wouldnt put the back speakers on a tweeter feed anyway, as it wouldnt drive the bigger speakers)

interesting how you have a fader option, what happens when you fade to rear, does the sound go off completely?
