In Topic: Cold Weather Affecting Mpg For Anyone Else?

27 January 2015 - 10:10 PM

I think it's definitely been the cold weather because as it has been a little but milder (can't say warmer) my Mpg has gone up to around 21 and is still climbing slowly. Bring back warmer weather

LeeSheffield that's actually quite serious compared to me. I must admit once mine latches it latches and I've never had a door swung open mid-flight. That's shockin. Nice car by the way. Interesting how many folk have said "oh I have that problem too" since I started the thread. This is poor ford!

Yea it was a scary moment. Thanks. I love it but having these small issues is annoying. Thought ford were supposed to be bulletproof lol. Compared to my previous yaris it's nowhere near as good. 7 years I had it with not one single issue but this is a much nicer car so I won't be changing any time soon.

Forgot to mention it's a 1.8 petrol mk2.5. I've never had great mpg. Can get 35 to 40 on a run but around 24 round town which is my main driving. Plus live in Sheffield which is basically all hills so expect rubbish mpg round town lol. I don't leave engine running I just defrost window then go so it's a mystery. When you say running rich how would I know? I recently cleaned all my throttle body and it was caked in carbon. Would that be a sign?

Hi I had this same problem the other day. Drivers door wouldn't open and had to give it a hard tug. Then wouldn't latch shut. After 5 minutes or so of fiddling with the latch it finally locked. Then was driving along and went round a corner and the passenger door opened without warning. Luckily was. Orpington there in the way to hit otherwise I'd have been severely screwed. Pulled over and closed it and then made sure I locked the doors to stop it happening again. Sprayed some wd40 on it and it seems to have worked so far. Now if the temp drops I keep the doors locked while I'm driving just in case.
