#372327 Very High Fuel Consumption, 1.6 Petrol Ford Focus 08 Zetec Climate 116 ..

Sniff around the fuel filter, and see if there is any small leaks from there. Depending on the age and quality of the fuel filter, it could well be a place for a leak.



no fuel filter fitted to the ti-vct engine.


i say stop being tight and tank it and then see what your getting. my mums saloon gets 27-30 MPG round town and a tank last about 300-325 miles

#321680 Fog Lights - Only Legal In Fog?

Posted by Mr Singh on 14 January 2014 - 07:49 PM

there is another thing i dont understand, why do some drive with there side lights on and there front fogs? i mean dip beam gives a better view of the road than just side and fogs... and if you have a look as the light stalk on Honda's, Toyota's, Peugeot's for example there fog light switch is ON the stalk itself and not a separate button on the dash so when the driver switched there lights on, there fingers catch the fog light switch which results in the fogs being illuminated.... same when the fog lights are switched on genuinely the rear is switched off when the lights are switched off but the fronts stay on.


they are called FOG lights for a reason...  :angry:


incorrect usage of lights in a PROPER pet hate of mine, right from no lights when its dark to only using side lights (even some cases of no lights) when its foggy.

well will need EVERYTHING from the donor car from the engine bay. you will need the engine, gearbox, drive shafts, ECU, wiring harness, possibly keys, new hubs and brakes if the engine is from a different car.

Posted by Mr Singh on 21 August 2013 - 05:27 PM

#283922 V-Power Nitro+ And Unexpected Side Effect

Posted by Mr Singh on 20 August 2013 - 06:50 PM

Hi guys.


This is a bit of a strange one this............


I thought I would try using V-Power diesel in my new car (only had it a month) to see if I could notice any benefits over supermarket fuel as in smoother engine, increased MPG etc etc

I accidentally put something called NITRO+ in by accident as I didn't realise Esso did anything other than just V-Power.

Gutted when I had filled the tank (extra 8p per litre) :(



didnt realise that esso also sold V-Power nitro+... i always thought it was only shell?! :D

V-Power changed to V-Power nitro+ around febuary march time.
