Festa Phone Holder Location & Neat Power Cable

I have the traditional stick to glass phone holster for my Samsung Galaxy S 3 however I just cant find anywhere to stick it without impairing my view and it being miles away from the 12v.


I find the windscreen is too steep & small to stick it there!


I'm not sure I can spend £40 on a brodit console mount either.


I use my phone often as a satnav.


Where do you guys tend to put your phones / satnavs and have you routed power to your phone neatly?




Ecoboost 1.0T Mpg & Ecomode Owner Results

02 April 2013 - 09:09 AM

I recently purchased a Ford Fiesta 1.0T 125ps Zetec S and would be interested to see what Miles Per Gallon and Ecomode scores other Ecoboost engine owners were achieving (not just 125ps).


The car is documented to achieve the following:

Urban MPG: 53.3
Extra Urban MPG: 76.0
Combined MPG: 65.7


After ~150 miles, 50% motorway and 50% urban I have the following results:


Average MPG: 42.9



Shifting: 5

Anticipation: 5

Speed: 5


I look forward to seeings what other owners are achieving.




*Edit: for those that dont know, for which there seem to be a few Ford Ecomode is accessible from pressing menu on the dash and enter on ford ecomode, you will see three catagories, for each green leaf coloured in the more economically you drive, 5 out of 5 being the most economical in each section*
