In Topic: Titanium X Sport Diesel

17 January 2009 - 10:35 AM

I am about to take delivery of a new Titanium X Sport diesel and was wondering if anyone had any tips on if I need to run it in.

Apparently is is not necessary to run-in a new engine. However ( and I am old school) I always tend to keep it under 4000rpm and under 80 for the first 400 miles. I like to take it easy for a while if only to get a general feel of the car and handling. However, with the sports version it may be hard to restrain yourself! :rolleyes:

Newbie here! Just bought an '04 plate Mondeo Zetec TDCi 130 with 55k on the clock. Any idea what kind of consumption i should be getting? Motorway driving at 70 with the cruise on. The computer is saying 49mpg but i've heard it should be nearer 55? Anything obvious i'm missing?
I've had a V6 Vectra for the past 5 years so completely lost track of what diesels can achieve these days.

Firstly nice car, secondly no idea! Anything over 40mpg is good on motorway driving imho - Mondeos are built for this! Have you got an estate? They are heavier and not as aerodynamic as a Hatchback or a saloon thus a little more thirsty. I would be pleased with 49mpg. ;)
