David 295 have you ever tested out leaving your car running for delivery, perhaps getting a second key cut as long as it's parked in sight. If mpg does significantly improve, perhaps you can ask an auto sparky or find an on the shelf system for what they call run lock.

It's what police have, where u can take the key with you leaving the car running, but it will only stay running if you have the handbrake on and the car is in neutral.

Just a thought.

I don't think you will ever get brilliant mpg as a short journey stop start driver, have you tried a good old 'Italian tuneup' and long trip?

Strange that it goes away when it's warmed up though, that's what made me worry that it's a component doomed for failure

I'm the OP and Im 100% sure that it does it alot more noticebly when the ambient temperature is cold, it's frustrating, but I've yet to find out what the noise is, and it wasn't long ago it was at a ford specialist that plugged it in properly and couldn't see anything wrong, no fault codes and everything seemed in order, mines had regular oil changes and nothing has seemed to affect it.

I've given it longer to warm up and I try my best to stay off boost as much as I can for a while. I've only got 50 something k on the clocks too

Keep hunting and let me know what you find !

In Topic: What Is Your Mileage ? Who's Racked Them Up ?

I don't for one minute regret getting my ford, well apart from a few issues even though its a low miler.

But when I used to have a Beamer 4 or 5 years ago, people were coming up with 400k + and a few euro people with their million km 6-pots.
