Hi,

That knob is to pull the fuel tank cap open. But the cap works only with its separate small lever on the right side of the driver seat. So a good yank with the knob would break the locking mechanism.

Yes.

Bang on.

I guess so. As Gemi has written, I tried that central locking thing before writing here. Unfortunately it is not connected to the central locking system.

For the present the Marina is staying. 68500kms without problems, car is in excellent condition and everybody loves it. And I love it when I see it and drive it.

Oh God! Who knows? I just took the car they gave me. I saw that car for the first time about 15 minutes prior to key hand over.

Is boot mat included in the essential pack? I did not notice one in my car.

When the doors are locked, the fuel cap lid remains locked. When the door locks are opened, the lock for the fuel cap is released as well.

Rajesh, this is the same on the Ikon, Fiesta, Fusion as well.
In the Spark, Santro and any other car I guess, the fuel cap lid cover opens when the remote release hook is lifted; as such there is no hook like arrangement on the cover lid, so it is probably quite useless.

Default chimes

I get 4 chimes when I turn ON the ignition and one chime when I crank it.
Is it normal in Titanium ? Don't remember reading in manuals ?

I think you should he hearing more than that. There are 3 chimes when all the lights on the dash comes on and three chimes when they go off. Ifs the engine check going on. You must start only after that.

I cross checked again, its 4+4 . 4 when the lights come on and 4 when the lights go off.

Default A lot of calculation and is it good?

Hi,

The Scanguage II works nicely with the Ford and I used it for a trip to do some checking of mileage etc.

The car had already run that much after the last tank fill:
My Figo Titanium TDCi Squeeze-image_003.jpg
The fuel gauage was at this point after the last fill. Never went to full. Now it is full after refill.

The starting odometer yesterday for the NH trip was 492.
My Figo Titanium TDCi Squeeze-image_004.jpg
This is at the end of the journey. 83km in 1hr 50 mts @ 45.27kph.

Now for the stats from Scanuage: 81.6km, 83 degree C (84 degree C maximum), 1 hr 54 mts, 43.2kph average speed (68.8kph maximum speed), 2765 RPM maximum, 17.92kpl average (the best was 18.4kpl), 4.52L used.

Similar return journey was with odometer at 594km enidng at home with 677km. 83km in 2hrs 3mts @ 40.49kph.

Now for the stats from Scanuage: 81.4km, 82 degree C (85 degree C maximum), 2 hrs , 38.4kph average speed (72kph maximum speed), 2659 RPM maximum, 18.24kpl average (the best was 18.4kpl), 4.5L used.

The in town run between these two trips was 594-575=19km.

This is the total for yesterday (trip meter).
My Figo Titanium TDCi Squeeze-image_009.jpg
The Scanguage gave a total of 180.8km (a 3.9km difference).

Now for the stats from Scanuage: 180.8km, 85 degree C maximum, 5 hrs 6m, 35.2kph average speed (72kph maximum speed), 2765 RPM maximum, 18.24kpl average (the best was 18.4kpl), 11.12L used. This works out to 16.26kpl.

From this we can see that 11.12 - (4.52+4.5) = 2.02L seems to have been used for the 19km which gives it a 9.41kpl figure.

Out in the sun:
My Figo Titanium TDCi Squeeze-image_005.jpg
My Figo Titanium TDCi Squeeze-image_006.jpg

The car had local runs of 58.9km before this run. Now with a odometer distance of 245km, it took in 16.43L of diesel giving 14.91kpl.

The Scanguage figures for the tank: 236.8km, 7hrs 48mts, 30.4kph average, 16.5L used (giving an average of 14.35kpl) and an average fuel consumption figure of 14.24.

So I can take the Scan guage readings as more or less accurate.

Now I have to hazard the guess that right now, it is the in town shortish runs are the runs which are pulling the fuel efficiency figures down.

This was with AC through out and except for the in town runs, it was me alone.

I have a similar run scheduled for tomorrow. No local runs after the fill this time. Let us see what I come up with. Those stats will be ready by Monday.

So in 12 days my Fig has covered 678km (57km per day) with an overall average of 13.38kpl with AC always on.

WoW! Thats a lot of calculations. I think you are right. Remember one of my tank fills on which i did 300km city and 300km highway driving. I got an average F.E of 15.5. The very next tank with full city run gave me just around 13.5km/l. So the highway mileage should have been just around 17.5km/l with sedate driving. I think Ford has screwed up things while tuning the Figo. The car does not pull from second after speed breaker slowdowns neither does it give outstanding F.E figures. I sincerely hope they come up with a ECU tweak that would improve things.

Looking forward to your next update.

For aiding the new engine setting in - do they liberally allow the fuel to flow? And then after the first service, do they properly set the values?

Tis strange indeed. I bought the diesel Figo for the mileage alone.
