  1. Escort Or Focus For Mpg

    Hey Guys, Sorry if this has been asked before, however I could not find the topic. I am having a rather tough time deciding on the following: I currently own a Escort 99 1.6 Finesse with 107k on the clock, the car is getting old with large amount of rust around the arches and my MOT is coming up which I'm guessing its going to fail due to some welding etc (like normal) I'm currently getting good MPG - about 38 (around 400 miles to a tank) A local garage is selling a 2.0 1999 Ghia Focus with 127k on the clock, they are selling it really cheap with an MOT. It has no rust and good condition - all I need is to tax and insure it. My question is: How much does a 2.0L Focus cost to run - MPG wise etc as I don't want to go for the focus and it end up costing me a large amount in tax and petrol, compared to the Escort. (I have looked on websites but they come up with the official stats from Ford) Do you think it is wise car to go for? Thanks for your time, Dale_22
