Okay, I'm a bit of a eco guy right now, namely because I'm driving a crazy amount of mileage and finding it hard to save.

Okay sob story out of the way..... Is there a way to get instant MPG on the Mondeo MK4. I used to have it on my Focus and found it very handy and helpful to help me save fuel.

Any reason it's not on my car? Anyway to activate it?

Thanks

It all depends on which instrument type you have, from memory there are 3 types, what trim level is your car?

Both instant and average mpg plus plus average mph and trip are on the converse+ screen with scrolling available on the RH ok button on steering wheel.

If the Ops car is only Zetec trim, I don't think he'll have the fancier Converse+ display.

That's why asked what trim level, a Zetec would be very unlikely to have convers, he might have the type 2 display which has a basic computer, but the chances are it's just the basic set up, so can't get avg consumption

Not available on type 1 But is on type 2 jand on converse which is normally Titainium and above spec if you have type 2 you will have a button on one of the stalks can't remember which.

which is a little odd given that the exact same cluster on the focus (style, I'm aware its on a different BUS)  has the instant average mpg... you can of course drop in a converse+ cluster, pretty sure you dont even need to reprogram, you will need to make a note of the miles differential unless you happen to find a cluster with the same miles.

He won't have the steering wheel controls so it's not a simple job.

did the mk4 mondy come without them? I thought all mk4s came with them and CC controls (in the UK at least)

Depends on the trim and spec levels and the OP is in Ireland completely different specs over there.

Microcat seems to suggest otherwise. some come with or without CC or ACC but the navigational controls appear on all of the wheels. also there doesnt appear to be another stalk with controls on and even on the type 1, you need some sort of control interface.

I beg to differ, my 2008  Zetec had just a plain steering wheel no cruise control no mpg read out, just like the mk3s where,  early mk4s are the same and 2008 could be a 3 or a 4

Well, I cant find any part numbers for such a thing, there was a Mk3 steering wheel which looks a little like the Mk4 which didn't come with the controls on it. But I cant see anything to suggest there was a Mk4 steering wheel which came without any controls on it, it must have had something to control even the type 1 cluster....

Perhaps you had a Frankenstein model, had some bits from the mk3 and 4?

the mk 4 Mondeo has 3 clusters available. that top one, the basic model, is the same as the IC in this video below

are you thinking of the type 1 focus cluster? which was a thin green backlit LCD at the bottom?

Until the OP gives more information as to what his car has then this is pointless and as I said before his car is likely not to be UK spec

No I've never even been in a focus  had Mondeos since the mk1 only just changed to a C-Max

he has a mk4 2008 Mondeo zetec.with a type 1 cluster, not sure there is any more we need to know, theres no part numbers that I can see with a steering wheel without controls and that type 1 cluster does have some basic menu controls.

OP, if you have a Mondeo mk4 with the basic MK4 standard wheel, you can fit a converse+ cluster, you cant fit the newer FL converse+ clusters without installing a custom firmware which will cost about 60 quid, the newer facelift cluster will work but will show some warning lights until the custom firmware is installed.  The preFL cluster which looks like...

See the source image

 

this Is the one you want. I picked one up for about 70 quid. read up before purchasing, apparently there is some Frankenstein versions of later clusters which looked like a prefl but inside was a FL version, the SN should have 11 digits, I think the newer ones had 9 or 7
