      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. Mpg In Econetic Ford Focus

    Gave up with my Focus. The mpg did improve dramatically after 10k miles but so many other niggles I sold it after only 6 months. I'll never buy another Ford.
  2. Mpg In Econetic Ford Focus

    Yes, I also have a 3month old 1.6 econetic TDCi 115 focus. Mine is the estate. My old 2005 Octavia 140bhp 2.0 diesel regularly got 55-58mpg. Same journey, driven the same way, in the Focus gets 60ish. Very disappointing, and to claim 80+ is fraudulent IMO.
  3. 1.6 Tdci Fuel Economy

    Interesting reading here. I just bought a new Focus 1.6 TDCI estate. I'm getting 55 mpg on my regular journey to work. My old car was a 2005 Octavia 2.0 TDi. That gave me 58 mpg! Something's not right.
