      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.

    Will take this all on board. I've been driving it like an OAP. Having the oil and filter changed tomorrow and plan to change 6 monthly.

    Thanks for your replies, plus I thought that by dropping down a gear I would use more diesel but obviously not.

    Hello. I have recently purchased my first diesel (2006 Focus 1.8 TDCI) just one query, I have noticed that its not happy cruising along at 40mph in 5th gear and likewise at 30 mph in 4th gear, ( Slight labouring making me change down gear) all on flat roads which is something I never had a problem with in my petrol 1.6 focus. Most roads hold these speed limits around where I live. Is this the norm for diesels.
