  1. My fiesta 1.0 is a year old, 7.7k on clock and never used anything but tesco petrol and solid 44-46 mpg, thats doing 22 mile round trip to work and a bit of pottering round town, a decent 50 mile trip (thats what it takes to get onto M6 from whitehaven) can comfortably get 54-56 however on motorway around 45 -47...and happy with that...fantastic car having dropped in size from kuga..looking at try 97 ron fuel and getting it chipped soon so wondering what to expect
  2. Hi guys interesting thread n convinced i want this done now heres my questions. can i drive to an installer get bluefin fitted thendrive car away never to worry about the upgrade ever again? How will mpg change after chipped? living in cumbria would i need to leave car with supplier? dont want to do this any advice welcome...ps i have read thread but probs missed this info Ta Garymac66
  3. My 2013 1.0 fiesta service due March, was quoted £141 at arnold clarke where i purchased it, a ford dealer closer to home quote £114, arnold clarke have now agreed to match the price... lesson learned dont take quote without shopping around
  4. nearly a year old 7000 miles and averaging 45 mpg......no where near fords predictions motorway around 52 not impressed
  5. just starting to get better mileage in my 1.0 L ecoboost fiesta zetec.....getting around 430 miles to a full tank averaging around 48mpg after 2500 miles on clock
  6. had my 1.0L zetec petrol for 2 month now and done 1700 miles only averaging 43 mpg ? jst travelled from cumbria to manchester 310 round trip at 47 mpg...traded my ford kuga in for this thinking i would benefit as i was getting 43 mpg in 2.0L diesel....how wrong i was....book says tank range 606 miles? i fill to brim n comes back 380....anyone know what tank capacity is as manual just gives complicated way of calculating average mpg....like the car but mega dissapointed with consumption so far
