My spark plugs are gapped at 1.3, just checked. Is it different according to manufactures?

Well, I've got a 2006 1.2 aswell and I know what your talking about! I always thought it was me, I even went to the extent of replacing the air filter, cleaning out the cat, changing the oil, but it stayed the same.

I presume it's something to do with the ECU.

have you got a lead right foot and what's your mpg average?

In Topic: Tyres Look Squashed But Right Pressure?

I have uniroyal rain sport 3 195 50 r15 on my mk6 fiesta and they do look saggy at 29. My tyre fitter said they should be minimum 34 but it's up to you. All I can guess is the tyres rated a+ for wet grip have to have more road contact. Plus maybe when ford calculate they tyre pressures, they go with their recommended tyre manufactures, I'm my case it's mitchelin.

My fiesta mk6 handbook says front 29 rear 26 but they were dragging along all the time, so I put pressure up to 35 front and 30 rear, sounds a little too much but apparently when ford printed these handbooks, they didn't anticipate the different types of tyres, e.g mine are rain sport 3 as well it's raining most of the time, whereas my other cheap tyres were happy at 29 psi
