Hill starts. What gear should I be in? I am having trouble with the auto stop/start from mat.
I purchased 2016 ford transit van im just not sure about the engine turning it self off all the time
Old school says to keep it running as it cost more fuel to restart a diesel
Any thoughts ?
I was looking at the Ford Transit & Renault traffic (which switch of the engine) Sales rep said that the Renault has a button on the dash to override so you can choose when to apply this feature. This would be no problems country driving but in the city would be a pain. and as both are European made they may have same features
I am not qualified to answer your question Scott. But new vehicles are being upgraded with new features both for safety and economy. My own personal veiw, is that a vehicle engine that switches itself off when idling say at traffic lights, would probably be normal to a driver after a period of time. It is surprising how drivers automatically get used to these new features on vehicles. If a vehicle gives you the choice of a feature being able to be turned off and on, so much tbe better for preference.
