    Fiesta Zetec 1.4 TDCi
  1. I've now put about 3000 miles on the car ( 10 plate 1.4TDCi ) since I got it with about 7000 on the clock, weekly average varies between 64 to 67 MPG driving mostly country A and B roads, very very pleased with this :)
  2. Well after a week of driving I'm rather pleased what the car is telling my MPG wise, on a weeks worth of commuting ( just under 200 miles ) it's managing just over 63MPG and on this weekend's runs it currently over 64MPG, most of my driving is on empty countryside A roads with a little bit of dual carriageway mixed it. So from a weekly running costs point of view it's going to be the same or slightly better than the Aygo was while having more room, a vastly higher level of equipment and is loads nicer to drive :)
  3. Just picked up a bottle of this, has a great smell, now just need a few more bits and I'll be able to give my new to me Fiesta a nice wash and wax. Plan is to give it a good clean and wax a couple of times a year and a regular wash & dry with maybe quick detailer application.
  4. 6 speed box would be worth while, I test drove a Yaris with a 6 speed box and it was great on dual carriageways or motorways, a ratio that would let my diesel do 70MPH at about 2000rpm would help push the MPG up.
  5. Picked up a year old Zetec 1.4L Diesel with 7000 miles on it at the end of last week, currently on my work commute it’s averaging 63mpg and on a weekend blast up and down the M1 of about 100miles it managed 61mpg. I’ll add to the poll and add some extra thoughts once I’ve put a whole week’s worth of driving on it, loving it so far after switching from an Aygo.
