Hi all
its bit of a long shot but Im at present shipping my car to Uk as I’m over here for a few years but I’m coming up with a few issues trying to register the vehicle in U.K., they want proof of it’s emissions, I’ve tried contacting ford in SA but they don’t seem to want to help much
Does any one have a clear picture of the fuel efficiency sticker that goes on the windscreen when purchased new as this shows fuel per litre etc
mine is a 2018 RS Edition and I don’t have that sticker as I didn’t buy it new
Ford head office said contact my local ford dealer as they would write a letter saying it’s fuel efficiency etc but as at present I’m in U.K. it’s a bit hard to pop into my local ford in Brisbane
any help would be great

Window stickers are available electronically, I imagine any Ford dealer in Australia (probably even the UK) can pull it up with your VIN. Have you reached out to a UK or Aussie Ford dealer for an assist?

Hi mate. Go to the Green Vehicle Guide Australia. Just google Green Vehicle Guide Australia and its the first link that comes up. The website is an Australian government initiative - just select the Ford Focus RS and click compare vehicles. All the emissions and fuel data will be listed there and can be printed to pdf.

From the FAQs section of the website:

"The data for the Green Vehicle Guide is supplied by authorised representatives of vehicle manufacturers. It is sourced from the certification data required by Australia’s emissions standards and fuel consumption labelling standards (ADRs 79 and 81/02 respectively).

The Department verifies the data supplied by cross-checking it against certification data for the relevant ADRs. Evidence submitted to demonstrate compliance to the ADRs is subject to audit by the Department"
