my car functions better on a half tank!


I suppose if you add too much extra weight the hamsters under the bonnet get out of breath...

Doesn't the mod from foot powered to hamster powered hike up your insurance massively?

I think a team of gerbils would be much more efficient, personally. Everyone knows hamster-power is so out dated.

Stop being ridiculous. We all know Michael's car runs on love. (It's also partial to dents and cheap, unfathomable personalised number plates.)


Only joking Mike. Also I still like your plate... :D

Only joking, I still want a private plate... but not dents. :D


Oi! My car runs on everything good in the world!

And my private plate is mint, you're all just jealous!

I only just read this...hahahaha.

Oops, think this thread has gone a bit OT. I usually get about 350 miles per tank from my 1.6 petrol, maybe a bit less if I'm enjoying myself.

Hi All,

I bought my new Fiesta diesel 1.6 Econetic at the end of October 2009, having swapped it from a BMW 320i touring (29mpg and used more oil than petrol). I'm not usually an anal retentive but I started an Excel spreadsheet to check the mpg figures and I've found that I get between 55.2 and 59.6mpg with overall 56.8mpg over the first 4000 miles - I've a daily commute of 40+40 miles, town travel, A roads, dual carriageway.

The spreadsheet tells me when the tank is likely to be empty -50 miles and I used that figure the other day only to find that the engine warning light came on and the car was a bit erratic to drive, luckily I was only a few hundred yards from a filling station and when I filled her up the warning light went off. There should have been 2.7L/30 miles of fuel left - maybe the outlet pipe from the fuel tank is a bit on the high side? :unsure:

Mk7 1.25 Zetec only 300 odd mile's on it at the minute, alway's fill the tank but do most of my driving in town, rarely seen the average mpg get above 34/35, usually only got around 300/325 miles to a tank in the same spec Mk6, with the Mk7 being abit lighter may see this improve abit :)

just realised this is in the fiesta section, i do apologise for invading.

focus 2001 1.6 zetec, definetly not very light footed. 400 in the winter and 430 in the summer from 50 litres.

so after a bit of maths, that 36mpg in winter and 38.7mpg in summer.


Oops also a 1.6 zetec Focus owner getting 320 when the light comes on calculated 33.6mpg last time. These Ford's really aren't that great on consumption then.
