It's good to at least know what the problem is. And if they say it's ok to drive then then you don't need to worry really, anything that happens will be covered by the warranty.

Thanks mate. Does cruise control help if you just set it at 70-80? I've heard anything over that drinks juice?


I'm not sure how much fuel it saves but it should at least save a little, just because you're not constantly slowing down and speeding up again. It's definitely worth having though, makes long journeys so much more relaxing. I'm not sure about the speed, I usually stick to 70 but you're always going to use a lot more fuel going 80 or 90, regardless of what car you're in.

I think I've posted here before but might as well give an update.


I'm getting around 35-37 mpg mostly from commuting, only 15 miles a day on a mix of different types of roads. That's the true mpg checked each fill up, the trip computer says about 4 or 5 more. Also did a long trip to Cumbria and back at the weekend and got 40.5 mpg, that was about half motorway and half A roads, but lots of traffic at times, air con on most of the time, 3 people plus luggage and a heavy right foot. So it could probably do a fair bit more than that if you try to save fuel. This is with Shell V-power.


Will have to see what I can get on the trip down to Ford Fair at the weekend, I'm hoping for at least 45 mpg.

Here's our convoy thread: http://www.fordowner...rd-fair-convoy/


It looks like you'll be joining after our last stop unless we change things, I'm not familiar with where all the service stations are though.
