      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.

    MK4 Mondeo
  1. Titanium X Sport Diesel

    Apparently is is not necessary to run-in a new engine. However ( and I am old school) I always tend to keep it under 4000rpm and under 80 for the first 400 miles. I like to take it easy for a while if only to get a general feel of the car and handling. However, with the sports version it may be hard to restrain yourself!
  2. Mondeo Mk4 Fuel consumption

    Firstly nice car, secondly no idea! Anything over 40mpg is good on motorway driving imho - Mondeos are built for this! Have you got an estate? They are heavier and not as aerodynamic as a Hatchback or a saloon thus a little more thirsty. I would be pleased with 49mpg. ;)
  3. Mondeo Mk4 Fuel consumption

    2.0TDCi 140BHP - got to admit was very impressed too as the car was also fully laden!
  4. Just done a recent trip and, if anyone is interested, managed to do 768 miles on one tank of fuel with 58 miles in reserve. Yes, I did use the heated seats too, and this included the M25 - which in my opinion is the largest car park in europe rather than a motorway. Beat that Clarkson. Oh - he did....... ;)
  5. Well hello there!

    Am still a newbie so on my best behaviour at the moment matey. I give it 2 weeks..................
  6. Hi to all the smaxers

    I have broken the Mondy! Seriously I did. :( Hi there my littlesortoffrenchdude - pleased to see you here! Been a long trip sailor! I still don't own an Smax and am still lurking on Smax forums.
  7. Keys Recoded?

    Recently had a bit of drama with the keys to my MK4 Mondeo and wondered if anyone else had had the same problem. (Keyless entry). Approximately 2 hours from home stopped off for a cup of coffee and when we returned to the car it unlocked but the keys could not be detected by the car. Very long wait for AA man, very long wait in garage to be told that the keys had to be recoded. Frantic phonecalls to Ford UK, 2 hours later (plus 4 cappuccinos) problem solved. Hope this doesnt happen again, or is the immoboliser playing up? Any advice welcome. (My first post!) ;)
