      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. Thanks for the responses guys. As I drive 35,000miles a year I'm starting to reconsider this... Things were a bit better yesterday, I drove to Nottingham and back (300miles) and my tank usually gives me around 300-320 miles to a tank with the way I drive (Mostly motorway and A road driving) and yesterday it read as high as 380miles to a tank (MPG reading never seems to change though?) Also, someone mentioned to me that when the car goes in for an MOT I'll have to put the old one back in or else it will fail, is this true? Cheers
  2. The reason I bought this specific kit was that it has a box that has been created to slot straight in place of the old one without having to bodge anything. The old duct was removed leaving a gap that causes air to flow straight through the grill and in to the new box, so hot air shouldn't be a problem. It's also got a pretty decent heat shield so it remains pretty cold at all times. Any other ideas? or ideas how I could increase it? (Other than driving economically which I do anyway...most of the time ;) )
  3. Morning all, First post here so I'll keep it short. Basically, I recently bought and fitted a J! automotive induction kit (Link: http://www.j1automotive.co.uk/ourshop/prod_1828433-Fiesta-Mk7-Air-Intake-Kit-16-Litre-202014105.html) I was advised that this would increase BHP slightly and make the engine sound a bit sportier (Both of which it has done) however, it has decreased the range of my fuel tank by about 50 miles! I have been driving as careful as possible and was advised my friend (who is a car fanatic) that no air filter should reduce the MPG of the car (Other than the first time you use it when you tend to rev it more so you can hear the effects) Has anyone else had similar issues? and is there anything I can do short of putting the old one back in?! Cheers
