Hi MetalMickey, yes it had a full service before I bought it. Actually, my initial fears on the car's fuel economy have been completely eradicated now. Did a 200 mile trip over the weekend. There, taking the 'scenic' route, I got 54.6 MPG. Coming back (motorway), I got a whopping61 MPG. This was by driving conservatively, admittedly!
As you say, it takes a little time to get used to the extra power.
hi there i had the same problem when i 1st got my c max i was driving it carefully and always getting good returns in economy. way up there in the late 50's. i was reguarly getting 62 mpg after driving home after filling up at staion and driving 60 miles back down motorway. best i have ever had is 64 mpg. but recently i am only getting returns of low 50's even on a long motor way run.
i will do but what i need to do is an oil and filter change along with the fuel filter but have no idea on how too change the fuel filter and what sort of arrangement it is. i had a look yesterday and fell into the same trap as everyone on here seems to have and thats needing to bleed or prime the fuel system any ideas on how to do that. there was a description on here but not in much detail.
