I would cry if mine had ever been that low!

How much do you average? Any ideas why mine is so low? I don't exactly have a lead foot, I give it the beans every now and again but not much although most of my driving is round the doors rather than on a long run

I'm quite happy that my 1.4 is averaging between 48 and 50mpg on this tank of fuel :)

Not obligatory to re set it every time but if you are doing fuel mileage calculations it does make it a lot easier.

Did 620km (385miles) on full last tank on my 2013 Zetec S, half of it is a 330km long trip (~160km/h for about 150km on motorway) , rest of it hanging arround, city driving etc.

Done ~4200km to present day (2600 miles).

Is that good scoore?

Drove from Halifax to Peacehaven near Brighton a couple of weeks ago to visit friends granted nearly all motorway but averaged 48mpg over 274 miles at a pretty steadt70-80 mph and only cost me £38 to fill back up for the return trip. Well impressed with that.

Return trip was at 85-90mph and aircon on all the way still only cost me £42 and all on cheap (relative) supermarket fuel.

Normal daily commute to Leeds I average 38mpg, 30+ miles a day Aroad/motorway combos but most of its at under 50mph, it is the M62 after all, then a good blast when ever I can just to clean the valves out!

Used to have the mk6.5 diesel 1.4 and that managed a constant 63mpg in the summer and 58mpg in the winter. now got the mk7.5 econetic 1.6 diesel and thats doing 68 mpg at the moment without trying to hard. always get over 500 miles to the tank without draining it to the red line. If i get really anal i can get over 75mpg depending on roads and traffic etc.

so driving like a complete ECOmaniac i have manged this today after filling up the tank lol.

Started at 597, drove 100km back home and had this:

05288794-A049-47C9-832F-0CCA6DEEF64B-192

drove home from my parents house and now its up to 653km to 0 =D.

But this is driving at 10km under speed limit on motorway. But i'm pretty pleased, my goal would be to get up too 700km. I will try it out in two weeks when driving 1200km down to spain =).

oh its a zetec S 1.0 125ps 2013 fiesta

Compared to my last post, car is nicely run in and i'm getting 69.1 mpg.... And on course for 610 miles to the tank.

Thats 65 to 70 mph on the main roads, i did 210 miles and barely used a 1/4 of a tank, including getting stuck in traffic every day on the commute home.

So far loving the ZS, and now returning it to have a wave of updates fitted..... :D :D :D :D :D

1.0 EcoBoost.

Last tank I was averaging 44 mpg and did 350 miles with 70 miles left in the tank (according to the computer) before filling up.

Averaging 47.5mpg on this tank, only got 800 miles on the clock so far!

I can never really afford to fill a full tank. But in my Fiesta MK6 Zetec TDCI, a tenner roughly gets me 100 miles. Which is very good in my opinion.

2004 Fiesta Finesse (Mark 6.5?) 1.2 Duratec Petrol Engine. I get just over 400 miles to each tank - how far over 400 I go depends on how risky I'm feeling!

Sadly, I have recorded every drop of fuel I have put in the car over the 4 years we've had it, and always fill the tank. As a result, I can tell you that:

Average across 4 years, all driving conditions = 42.58 MPG

Lowest MPG: 37.89

Highest MPG: 50.86

Mileage now at 53K; owned by mother-in-law until 2009; we got it with 10K on the clock in 2009.

It really is a great little car. It's mainly used as a second car, local runs, but occasionally gets longer journeys.
