      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. New Model Fiesta....but Which To Go For??

    Try sitting in both - the doors on the 3 door are long which puts the seat belt a long way back - it could easilly become difficult to reach that far back as you get older. I bought a Titanium Econetic 5-door about 3 months back as a 3rd vehicle aimed at economy as I cover a fairly high mileage each year. I drive it reasonably gently (~60mph on the motorway) and have averaged 71mpg over 7000m since I got the vehicle - seems to have dropped to high 60's in the past few days as the weather has cooled down - probably the cold starts (heated windows front & rear etc) on my 12m each way commute to work.
  2. Fiesta Mk 7 MPG

    I purchased a March 12 econetic 1.6TDCi early in July with ~900 miles on the clock. In the past 2.5 months I have covered 5748miles and have put 80.60 gal of diesel in - that equates to an average of 71.39mpg. I tend to cruise at around 58-60 mph on motorways and have a 12mile each way daily commute to work which is a mix of rural and urban A roads - best tankfull so far was 518miles for 6.73 gal (30.58L) - which was 77.0 mpg maily motorway from Devon to Scotland via merseyside.
