Yeah, hopefully it is once-off! But I'm still curious to know what caused this!

Did you fill fuel from a different pump than usual? It can also be the fuel had impurities and clogged the fuel pump.

Fuel was filled from a regular, trusty bunk! I'm not sure, but will impurities in the fuel cause intermittent issues?

I want a help from Figo owners from Chennai

I had bought a Figo ZXi petrol from MPL ford in May 2010. At that time the OTR price included extended warranty. I have no papers to know whether the EW is for 3rd year only or for 3rd & 4th years.

My car's evaporator coil needs to be replaced and as per the service center data, the car had EW for 3rd year only which has expired (in May 2013). I remember the EW was for 2 years (after 2 year regular waranty). Can some one confirm.

The amount paid is as below

> Base Price 3,99,000
> Regn + L Tax + EW - 44,262
> Insurance - 12,302
> Essential pack + 3M - 4500

In 2010, Figo had EW for only 3rd year. 4th year was offered by Ford in later 2011/ early 2012 IIRC.

Now the Audio Bluetooth system is not working rest everything is working fine.
It's shows 'BT waiting'.
I tried to figure out the issue and it failed as i could not find any reset button and the menu won't show any other bluetooth menu items other than Bluetooth : on/off
Please let me know how to reset to factory settings or how to fix this issue.
I'm facing a similar issue after my second service. The bluetooth pairs correctly (maybe takes a bit longer) but while streaming music, there are intermittent drops in audio.

Yes I had faced a similar problem earlier with my Ikon. Get fuel filter checked and cleaned.

Just a quick question to you guys, we have Figo D and last day I was traveling on a very busy road stretch where I was forced to drive in the band of 50-60kmph for a continuous distance of 30-40km. Now the thing is when I have to keep her on 60 the rpm in 5th gear was just a shade below 1500 and I felt that engine was no that comfortable doing that (just a feeling though it was pulling well) whereas when shifted to 4th the rpm was around 2000 and engine was at ease. Now my question is during this kind of scenario which gear will be most efficient?

What I do is, like if the road ahead is clear and I won't have to brake again for a short while, then I shift it in 5th. If the stretch is bit crowdy and i'll have to slow down, then I keep it in 4th.

You just have to drive in highest possible gear, but you don't have to lug the engine

Will driving in 5th at 1500 rpm lug the engine? What should be the minimum rpm for 5th?

I'd prefer to drive in 4th with the rpm around 2000 than on 5th with the rpm around 1500, traffic or no traffic. In the Figo, I think driving between 1800 to 2200 yields better F.E. and also gives us power on the tap of the throttle.

This apart, it helps in avoiding lugging of the engine, which is more harmful than marginal drop in F.E. that might result from higher revvs in a lower gear.

Guys, have a quick query.

I am seeing some weird results with the FE for my figo TDCi. On the recent highway trip, the car gave a FE of 19.6 kmpl with 100% AC and some spirited driving on hill roads. But my city FE has come down to 13 kmpl. I drive mostly in 2nd and 3rd gears for about an hour and half a day on my to and fro commute. Could that be the only reason or am I missing something here?

This rekindles an old doubt of mine. My reasoning.
At 1500 rpm or less, the turbo will not be spooling. So the engine will not be efficient.
At 2000 rpm or more, the turbo will be spooling.
In other words, from a fuel efficiency point of view, which is most economical, an engine running at the highest revs below the turbo, or at lowest revs with the turbo?
Experts opine.

w.r.t fuel efficiency , what I have noticed is this :
- 5th gear @80-90 is best on highways, the moment you cross 100 the drop is very very steep (more drop than what you experience with competition). I have got more F.E on 2-lane roads (with its share of more braking needs, down to 1st or 2nd for humps, occasional rapid burst to get ahead of that slow moving truck etc) where I have max done 90 kmph ; than on 4L highways where I maintain steady 100-110 without any braking at all.
- stop & go traffic murders the F.E more than it does on the competition cars.

I think the good FE "band" for the figo TDCi is much narrower than other cars. Mostly because it is a SOHC & with that limitation, there is only so much the algorithms in the ECM can do.
