  1. Gave up with my Focus. The mpg did improve dramatically after 10k miles but so many other niggles I sold it after only 6 months. I'll never buy another Ford.
  2. Yes, I also have a 3month old 1.6 econetic TDCi 115 focus. Mine is the estate. My old 2005 Octavia 140bhp 2.0 diesel regularly got 55-58mpg. Same journey, driven the same way, in the Focus gets 60ish. Very disappointing, and to claim 80+ is fraudulent IMO.
  3. Interesting reading here. I just bought a new Focus 1.6 TDCI estate. I'm getting 55 mpg on my regular journey to work. My old car was a 2005 Octavia 2.0 TDi. That gave me 58 mpg! Something's not right.
