I've recently bought a 2001 Ford Fiesta Flight 1.3 Petrol, having learnt to drive in a Diesel Corsa.
I've noticed that in order not to stall, I have to give it a lot of gas. Whilst I know that petrols require more gas than diesels to get going, the amount I have to give it in order not to stall seems a bit excessive. As such, I've accidentally span the wheels on a few occasions.
As it's a more 'basic' model, I have no RPM gauge so can't accurately judge what I'm doing each time.
Is it possible that there may be something wrong, or something that needs adjusting? Someone suggested that a mixture adjustment might need to be made? Alternatively, is it more likely that I'm simply getting used to an older Petrol rather than a newish Diesel?
