    focus Zetec estate 1.6tdci
  • UK/Ireland Location
  1. I have a 56 plate Focus Zetec estate I work shifts so its used in all weathers and times of the day I live in a busy town not a city. My Focus has never dipped below 50 mpg around here and on runs I can get 58-62mpg at normal motor way driving and once on a long run I got 70 mpg (which I worked out to make sure ).
  2. I have a56 plate 1.6 tdci estate and around town (I work 3 shifts) I get no less than 50 to the gallon normally 52, on a long run of 100 miles or more at speed limits with a car full of kids and camping stuff I do 60ish but once coming back from Wales on winding roads I had her reading 72 mpg I have filled up and worked out the mpg and apart from the Wales one can confirm the other 2 readings. Before this we had a petrol 1.2 punto and at best this would do 48mpg on a run. So I would say that diesel for me is better with a bigger car and more mpg.
