Currently I have a Ford Focus Ghia 1.8L petrol - 2001 (Y REG).
This is a fuel swallower!
I fill up for around £70-75 and get about 330-340 miles out of that, so pretty bad.
I did a google search for the best cars (not just Ford) and saw Fiesta was mentioned, and so too was a Vauxhall Astra 1.7 TDCI.
Diesels seem a good bet. I just want to stop spending so bloody much on petrol!
Car should be no more than £2K.
