FORD FAIR – SILVERSTONE – 6TH AUGUST 2017
Join us on the Ford Owners Club stand at Ford Fair, Silverstone on Sunday 6th August 2017.
Had our Fiesta 1.0 zetec ecoboost for 2000 miles now. Great litlle car and engine seems very smooth but bit concerned on fuel consumption. Book says 53.3, 65.7 and 76.3 mpg for the three cycles and a couple of dealers have said look for around 10% less than these in real life. I would hope for around 55 - 60 overall. Even on a run to Lake Distrct and back we are only getting 48-49 which seems disappointing and 43/4 around town. Have checked average mpg readout against tank to tank calculation and it seems about right Assume at this stage I am an economical driver (I can get 42mpg out of my volvo v70d auto on the same run). What are the rest of you getting?
