Hey guys I got a 2013 1.0 ecoboost (125) titanium and I was wondering what MPG people are getting and how many miles to a tank, mine seems to be drinking fuel, no idea why, had It 9 days and already had to fill up twice.. I am driving like a granny so not revving the nuts out of it.

Hope anyone can help

Cheers

Honest john's real mpg for the 1.0 125 is about 40 mpg. This is what other owners have been getting. What Car's true mpg service is customisable, so take a look for yourself, but it says about 40 mpg driving economically.

What sort of mpg are you getting?
Also bear in mind that your car will not be as economical until it is run in, typically a few thousand miles.

i heard some people saying that the 1.0 ecoboost is not that economic ..

James Rosier
I'm getting around 37 at the moment at 500 odd miles, so hopefully will get better...

jmbrown91 has the same engine, have a search for his posts!

You'll be a bit more reassured :)

NorthSussex

That's poor MPG, hopefully it will get better when it's run in, my 1.8 petrol 125ps gets 37mpg average and 40mpg on a long run.

It's a small engine pulling a lot of car , Ford's MPG is always far from actual MPG , i'm down to 28.3 :huh: on a 1.6 ecoboost , i may as well have an St. lmao :lol:

Well I'm going for a long drive next week to longleat centre parks! So 125 miles each way! Hopefully that will be a nice break in drive for her!
jmbrown91

I'm averaging around 40.8mpg atm, cars done just about 3200 miles...I reckon after a few thousand miles more it will start to rise. This weather doesn't help things! Bring on the summer!

artscot79
The 1.6 ti vct was claimed to improve mpg but in reality its no different to the 1.8 i had unless you drive the same route as someone else there mpg isnt valid as traffic inclines distance air temperature etc all effect a cars mpg

The actual mpg for the car from owners is 35-47mpg average being 40mpg my ti vct was claimed to have better mpg than the standard 1.6 standard it was 42-44mpg but gave 36.8 the ti vct should have given a 5% improvement with 42.8-44.8 mpg actual is 35.8 i think the 1.0 was great for the fiesta and ka but the focus being a heavy car needs a bit more

I should be getting my new Focus Titanium X (125) soon so will keep you posted what kind of MPG I get too!

Out of interest, has your MPG improved at all this week?

Doing about 440 miles to a full tank now!

Loving it so much!

Getting better and better then, is that using cruise control going at 70mph? Or slower? Fingers crossed it'll keep improving for you!

Lol, that's quite impressive so early on then! Happy to hear that as I'm picking mine up this Saturday!!

Yeah I honestly can't wait now, this week can't go fast enough! Think it will be one hell of an upgrade from a 1.25 Fiesta with 82ps to the 1ltr 125ps!! Couldn't believe how quiet it was in the test drive but still with so much power available  :)

stuartr26

After picking up my Focus on Saturday I've done around 100 miles and it is currently averaging 33mpg so not terrible. I have been testing out the acceleration too so once I've had my fun it should go much further per tank!

 

It is such a good drive though, no complaints so far so would recommend to anyone!!

Ewaf88

Hi there I've just joined this site so my reply maybe a bit late. However a few months ago I decided to really test the economy. This is what I achieved on an engine with 6k miles on the clock. 

 

On a long run (600 miles) to Switzerland cruising at a steady 65 I managed 52 mpg. On the way back holding around 72 I got 49 mpg.

 

On mixed driving I've been getting around 43 and on urban only driving 38 mpg.

 

Now we don't all go on long trips everyday but it proved it could handle a long run although a lot of drivers wouldn't want to stay at 65 for too long.

 

For your information I didn't take these figures from the display but simply took note of the miles driven and how many litres it took to fill up again.

 

It hasn't achieved the official figures but I can forgive it as it's so great to drive (especially through the mountain passes) plus the refinement was light years ahead of my old Mark 1.

 

Hope this helps. 

artscot79

it never will achieve the figures thats a fact all buyers guides now tell you ignore fords optimistic mpg figures its a good car if you can get past that point

Ewaf88

To be honest I was delighted by its long distance economy and never expected to reach the official figures. My Golf never did either (but the Focus is far better to drive)

artscot79

i just dont look at the mpg anymore i know its about 39mpg driving short distance back roads just enjoy the drive

Burgess79
Just received my 1.0T last week while I was off work, spent a lot of time in town average dropped to 32.8 mpg :-s.

Now back to my daily routine today it has started to climb already at 34 mpg hopefully will it will keep on climbing.

Such an easy car to drive smooth & can't wait till I've run it in, so I use the full beans :-)
Ewaf88

You'll have lots of fun driving it - it's the first car I've had for quite a while that makes me want to actually go out and drive for the sake of driving.

Hi all I'm new to all this and was wondering if someone could help. I recently bought a 2013 focus 1.0 ecoboost and noticed that it only revs to 4000rpm when parked? It revs fine when driving just wondered if this is normal or is it a problem? Thanks
hotstuff39

just changed from a mk4 2ltr       mondeo to 1ltr focus ecoboost and im sure i was getting better mpg off the mondeo.

Ewaf88

The Ecoboost is very economical on long runs but isn't around town or mixed. See my above post from November

cookestar14
I did a motorway run yesterday 120 mile round trip and got 58mpg doing a little over 70 we'll pleased with it! I'm getting low 30's round town so not so good! I honestly think overall the focus st would be more economical!


CookeStar
Booster

My ZetecS has just done over 1000miles now and i'm averaging 38mpg combined. Not as economical as I thought considering my audi a3 1.6 with less power was bit better on fuel. The 56.5mpg advertised by ford was the engine on a test bed with no weight to pull. Funny how i've only just found this out after purchasing the car. If i had known I'd had have kept to my audi but the focus is nice to drive around and i'm use to the constant fuel station visits now.

 

Can anyone comment on whether the superchips bluefin upgrade might improve the fuel consumption??

cookestar14
I heard the bluefin upgrade does improve the fuel consumption, I'm in two minds whether to get it or not. Also a k&n airfilter improves fuel consumption and a little more power :) sound a little better too!


CookeStar
Booster

Spoke to remap science a bit earlier. They reckon any decent remap will improve fuel consumption but once you start putting your foot down and using that extra power then the consumption gets worse. So bottom line is with normal careful driving still then consumption will improve.

 

I wanted to wait till the engine has run in properly first before getting it remapped. Might get the K&N filter as you say after the first 1500mile inspection.

Burgess79
Yes, short shifting helps and momentum driving too, no sharp acceleration or braking, town driving is the worse, only getting 38 mpg, normally leave it on "how much in the tank" as the average mpg was depressing me lol

Got any pics of your mica stone? Wondered what they look like.

I am getting 36 mpg done 2000 since new, 24 mile round trip from Beverley into hull and back 3 days a week. Which is ok.

This is a post of mine from a couple of months ago in this forum. Searching this and other forums some owners are getting a better mpg than myself.
I bought this car, Focus Titanium 125 Mk3, 1L ecoboost expecting good mpg but the best that can be achieved is about 35.
There's about 11.5k on the clock and a lot of owners say it gets better with time, not mine sadly. Wouldn't mind if I drove the car as I would like but drive it with a light right foot to try to improve the mpg. Had an 1.6 Astra, drove like bat out of hell and still got 35mpg, would improve if right foot was a bit lighter. Have spoken to dealer a couple of time who said 35 was pretty average and probably might not be bettered. With the type of driving I do "Ford intimate I should get 55mpg" Apart from this the car is cracking to drive with lots of goodies including sat nav park and hill assist, sync works well. Car is very comfortable for 4 adults and the boot is ample in size. This car would only come with a recommendation so long as mpg was not a priority.

What sort of driving are you doing? I have the same model and have also done 11k now. I'm getting back 43mpg from mine though so that's a big difference from you

Ewaf88

Yes I was getting around 43 on mixed driving so that it a big difference. Even during a period of very short trips (shame on me for not walking to the shops) I never got as low as 35mpg. That's like a car from the 1970's

cookestar14
I went from hull to Manchester yesterday and sat at 75-80 there and back with the air con on and got 37mpg! My friend who was with us has a seat Leon Cupra R 1.8T 225bhp same speed and air con on got 39mpg! How the hell can ford say you get 60+ mpg on the motorway! My car has 26k on the clock and doesn't make it any different from a brand new focus IMO. I love this car too much I'm not bothered about the mpg for my next one I'm going for the st as fuel consumption won't be much difference at all only on paper!

cookestar14
One more thing to point out, this is the first ford I've ever owned and I have noticed that driving at 30mph feels very slow, the trip computer shows poor mpg but when I put petrol in it seems to last a lot longer than any other car I've had. I had a fiat punto evo 1.4 16v for my last car and that was very good on fuel. The same trip from hull to Manchester in that was averaging 52mpg but it cost me less petrol in the focus only getting 37mpg. Has anyone else noticed this or is it just me lol think my trip computer was made on a Friday bank holiday weekend hahaha

This mpg is a mixture of "A" road and motorway driving around 600 miles per month. My daily work mileage is 5 miles either way on a clear road. When I do work mileage only the mpg drops to 31. I always fill my car to the full every time to check the m.p.g so the figures are correct. I don't think my trip computer was built on a Friday afternoon, probably the whole car.......
Ewaf88

That doesn't sound right - the worst I ever got on short trips was 38 mpg (1.5 - 8 miles)

Pete14tc
I agree Don but speaking to my dealership they say my m.p.g. might not be bettered by their service department. They offered to show me how to drive my car to improve consumption, take the p or what. If I drove my car like I used to drive my Vauxhall Astra I'm sure consumption would drop even lower. Still like the car though.

I agree they are taking the mick... something must be wrong if the best it will ever acheive is 38mpg

Ewaf88

Well the Focus is a great car to drive - but has never lived up to my expectations on economy except on the long run to Switzerland.

 

I'm sorry others have been feeling a little short changed - the only thing to do is accept as the real driver's car it is and turn away when you fill it up.

Geting 50 mpg after 2000 mark from around town trips :-)
