      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.

  1. cheers Stooge75. I have never done any diagnostics myself (have always trusted the mechanic).....I might try the Italian tune up :) lets see......
  2. yes, it was recently serviced and fuel/air filters changed. Maybe its just getting old (its done over 100K). The thing is that it used to give me better economy before but I don't know what has happened lately. The driving conditions, etc haven't changed either. I don't know if it is the cam/timing belt or just age :)
  3. 47-49 mpg, with 90% motorway and A-roads driving.
  4. Hi guys....a wee update: I tried Redex diesel additive (a mechanic told me it clears dirt from injectors, etc and should improve economy)......no improvement in mpg!! I don't know if any of you have tried and seen a difference but I didn't so I thought I should share this with the group. Cheers!
  5. hi guys. just noticed a few typos in my previous post. please read friend as depend and rookies as replies. sincere apologies.
  6. Thanks Foca. I do feel the Mondeo rides better, but stiffer with higher pressures. I think I will crank it up again and see for a couple of weeks. in the meantime, May God have mercy on my back :) Appreciate all the comments guys.
  7. Thanks for the replies. I have tried 37 front and 41 rear, the car runs a bit hard and quite bumpy. My mechanic suggested not to use those pressures. so I now run 34 all round. Also. lower pressures have a better group. I measure the mpg myself and don't friend on the on board computer, they always over estimate. I measure from full to full and stop at the click of the pump. from your rookies, it seems lie 47-50 is not too bad. thanks again guys. happy driving :)
  8. Hi. I have a 2006 Mondeo 2.0 Zetec TDCi. I have always struggled to get the tyre pressures right. If I follow the manual, the front tyres look squashed and the mileage, I think, is affected. If I overinflate, ride is bumpy. So I was wondering what everyone is using as the standard pressure for this car. Also, what kind of mpg are you all getting? I do mostly motorways and A roads and I struggle to reach 50!! Any help/advice is much appreciated. Cheers.
