Commuting to work 5 days anything between 35 and 38 mpg and on a run about 42 to 43, it's done 8500 miles. I have found with asda fuel it's really sluggish, I would suggest non supermarket eg shell or bp, commuting 30 can last me 200 miles

thats not bad i guess for a sport version car. i always try and get Shell V-power diesel for my focus and also try to avoid asda garages....am averaging about 47MPG at the moment. thats doing a 28 mile round trip mon-fri (non motorway). i swear my 1997 VW Polo 1.4 petrol averaged about 30MPG....was horrific haha

I could probably get it a lot better as I tend to use high revs and set off quickly ( I dont like driving like an old man lol) but I stick to the speed limit. I mean 2 weeks ago round town I had ot doing 42 mpg and when I went to brid and back have even had it at 49 mpg, it can vary quite a bit. I love the BP ultimate, the fiesta flies with it in...literally! Turned off the roundabout and over a slide bump in the road I nearly gave myself heart attack as i didnt expect it to accelerate so quick
