      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.

  2. TDCI Servicing and MPG

    TDCI Servicing and MPG Dear all, I recently bought a 2006 Focus 1.8 TDCI it has currently done 22000 miles and coming up for its second service. At the moment the trip computer says I am getting about 48 - 50mpg, this to me seems a little low. (Other 1.9 TDI I have owned used to average 56-60). Can anyone tell me if this is just due to the engine running in? A friend told me that after the first or second service Ford are supposed to update the onboard computer to take it out of "Running in mode", thus allowing me to get better mpg etc. Can anyone tell me if this is true? I want to make sure that when I take it for its next service this is done. Like I said before it is due for its second service soon so you can expect its ready for a new air and fuel filter, could this have a impact on mpg? Any other advice as to what could be the problem or I should ask them to look at when I have it serviced would be much appreciated. thanks rob
