      Posting in General Chat thread.   11/11/2017

      it has been noted that too many Members are posting messages in the General Chat area instead of the correct Forums. Any messages posted in the General Chat area that are not General Chat will be deleted without warning and offenders may recieve warning points if repeated instances are seen from that Member. There are plenty of different Club areas that encompass 99% of Ford related posts, please select and use the correct one. If anyone is not sure of which area to post something then feel free to P/M myself or other Senior Staff for guidance. The Moderating Staff are having to spend far too much time chasing this problem instead of maintaining the other areas of the forum.

    Ford Fiesta mk7
  1. Hi All, New owner (first car ever) of the 1.25 / 82 / 5dr blazer blue fiesta model (trend). I am generally well pleased with the car so far but find it guzzles petrol. Now, I live in the countryside, work outisde city but venture to city centre say once or twice per week. I do not use highways as of yet. I have been tracking fuel consumption which worries me as the average mpg was: @ 500km = 33mpg @ 750km = 37mpg This is far off combined 49mpg the car is supposed to achieve. Now, it is rather hot in here (40C at the moment) so the aircon is working a lot but other then that I am beeing really frugal. What is your experience on this subject? Am I impatient and will I see a significant shift as I approach 2500km of usage and the engine matures? Cheers!
