    Hastings to Eastbourne and back (probably getting on for 40 miles). Mixed roads of town, national speed limit and a small stretch of dual.

    Normal mode, air-con off, short shifting and below 2,000rpm as much as possible. Averaged 32mpg on way out and settled at 31mpg by the time we got back. Air-con was on for the return trip.

    Better than I thought, but really…….you shouldn’t have to drive anything quite so sedate let alone an RS.

    scott.t after the first year of blatting around in it I’ve calmed down a bit for my licence’s sake, I think when you are always driving it hard you kind of get used to the power and start to think ” I need more, what map shall I get?” now I cruise around getting 32mpg and still have the odd flat out burst of torque and find I then think ” ooh, actually that is quite fast, think I will leave it std!!” its actually nice tootling around on feather light throttle instead of looking like a right boy racer W@n&e£ to non-car folk  !!



    No nothing.

    No Mods. No rockers. Just a chunky knob, thats now been replaced by an RS knob innit.

    No tackiness.

    Std as Ford intended, but with a space saver wheel and jack and nuts and wheel brace. oh.. and flaps, a man has got to have flaps.

    Innit?
