In Topic: The Difference Of V-Power Unleaded In The St

Today, 09:05 AM

Just to add amusement to the story...

I was filling up my '09 Zetec S today with Momentum 99, as I have done for many months now. In front of me, an older guy in a '13 Fiesta ST pulled up. Naturally, I'm a little bit jealous, at first, but then slightly shocked as he just puts regular unleaded in! Maybe he knows more than me when it comes to fuel - and let's face it, the fuel argument has happened a lot - but I'm really surprised you'd get an ST and not put better fuel in!
I drove off feeling baffled...


I'm the same, I thought if I'm going to see some benefits of using premium fuel then I think it's worth spending a little extra, considering I already spent extra money on a "performance" car. I know the difference may not be noticeable, but hopefully with the Mountune remap there is actually a good reason to use high octane fuel.

What's worse is that now I have this dashboard rattle that's only noticeable at low speeds, really annoying. It seems to be triggered by vibrations from the engine and clutch when setting off, as well as going over bumps. I'll try and track it down and fix it this weekend.

I'd take it back to the place that did the MOT and service - if it started just after that then they probably caused the problem and should fix it.

I've been noticing this too in the last couple of months, after putting the windows up I notice a bit of rattling but it goes away quite quickly. I think this started after I fitted wind deflectors and removed them shorty after.

If the Ford designers have any sense they would have made it so that the OBD circuit is completely disabled if the fuse is removed, even if someone connects a self-powered device to it. Can anyone confirm if this is how it works? It should be like trying to get data off a laptop that won't turn on (assuming you can't get at the internal components, which is the the same for a car).
