  1. I have Ford EcoSport (2019). I know there's a standard Torque PID for 'Ambient air temp' but that appears to be the external temperature. As my car has automatic climate control, there must be a sensor in the car somewhere. I was hoping to display the data from it within Torque. Anyone got any ideas? Searching Google / forums isn't coming up too fruitful.
  2. Mine reached -15 miles ("0 miles left" = 15 miles), yet I could only put in 46 litres, which is roughly 88% of the tank. I know cars reserve 10-15% before showing "0 miles left" but still - seems annoying.
  3. I thought it had a 52 litre tank (assuming this Parkers link is correct) but I drove 15 miles after the "0 miles remaining" warning, yet the car would still only let me put 46.3 litres in at the fuel station. Suggests to me this either means I'm wrong about it having a 52 litre tank or the "0 miles left" warning comes on when you have just over 6 litres (12%) of fuel left!
  4. Had mine (2019, 125ps, semi-automatic, petrol, ST-Line) for four months now and I average 39 mpg [Fuelly link]. That consists of around 75% motorway miles. In addition, I almost always have the heater on (though only one or two bars, and I turn the temperature down when I'm warm enough) and often have the electric seat (1 bar) and heated steering wheel on for 10-minutes or so on colder journeys. Anyone telling you they're getting higher than 40 mpg are either doing higher than 75% motorways (which is fair), or are lying.
  5. My previous car, a Peugeot 308 (2012), remembered my speed limiter speed that was last used each time I turned the car on, meaning I only have to press a button to enable the limiter and it be set to that speed. With my Ford EcoSport (2019), it wipes the speed each time I turn the car off; meaning I have to press and hold the speed adjuster for a while until it reaches 50 or 70 before my work commute every morning (and evening, to come home) (takes about 5 seconds each time - just gets annoying each time). Is there a way to make it remember the setting?
  6. I have a 2019 Ford EcoSport with Sync 3. I've noticed that the forward and backward buttons on the steering wheel only change between the six stations on the first page of radio presets. How can I continue onto the second and third pages without having to quit out of Android Auto etc.
  7. I drive every day or two, so hopefully it won't result in that.
  8. I picked up my 2019 EcoSport from a dealership, new, six days ago. It rained last night and this morning, the brake discs look like this: Nearside Far side Is this normal? I believe it'll go away once I brake a few times but if it keeps happening each time it rains - well, it's a bit unsightly!
  9. I've had my 2019 EcoSport for five days. The first four days, each time I plugged my phone (Huawei P30 Pro) in, Android Auto appeared in the navigation bar on the head unit (car stereo) and everything worked great. However today, nothing. Tried both USB ports, two cables, restarting the phone, turning the car on/off etc. The phone starts charging and Android Auto auto-launches on the phone itself but the head unit doesn't show the Android Auto tab along the bottom. The head unit connects to the phone's Bluetooth every time without issues. The phone is running Android 9.0 and I'm using the latest Android Auto app and head unit software etc. Any ideas? EDIT: It appears MTP/Media Transfer Protocol was disabled on the phone and was set to Charging Only. I have no idea what changed that since my drive this morning (when Android Auto last worked fine) - I certainly didn't.
  10. I looked in Sound settings but not Radio - there it is! As if it's disable by default - daft. Cheers, lads.
  11. Cheers, lads. My point was that I had 9l left of the 53l tank. Considering it's telling me there are zero miles left, 17% of the tank remaining is quite a lot!
  12. Is Sync 3's DAB screen capable of display artist and title information?
  13. I bought my Ford EcoSport (2019) a few days ago. The dealership put £20 worth of fuel in it. After some time of owning it, each time I started the engine, it correctly started telling me I had limited fuel remaining (26 miles left, 22 miles left etc). I know the car has a 53l tank and, when the car told me I had an estimated 22 miles remaining, I filled it until the pump 'clicked'. 43.7l had been in it. That means that, even though the car was telling it was quite lot, it had 9.3l of the 53l in the tank! I know all cars play it safe but my question is: If I turn the car on when it's at, say, "1 mile left", I presume it still has at least another 30+ miles remaining in reality?
  14. How do I check which version of Android Auto is installed? It's a Ford EcoSport 2019.
