Wife took delivery of a new 1.4 petrol last saturday, we are running in the car for 1000 miles and we have only done 250 miles but I have noticed that the cylinder on demand doesn't appear to be operational, is this something that doesn't become operational until the car is run in?

Which window are you looking at on the instrument cluster? The system doesn't display the "2-cylinder mode" unless you have the current mpg displayed. It will only switch over to two cylinders when there's no load on the engine. If you're in 4th gear try switching to 3rd and see if it comes up.

Active Cylinder Management: The engine automatically
shuts down two cylinders when performance
demand is low and certain other conditions
have been met. This process is imperceptible
to the occupants. The driver message
2-cylinder mode will appear if the current or
average fuel consumption display oFig. 16 is
selected in the instrument cluster. The cylinders
are reactivated under heavier load conditions.

Should point out I have the analogue display. Not sure if it's the same on the virtual cockpit.
