Have we got a new 'two or three line display' on our hands here? I'm sure mine only rounds to 1 mile and the fuel light comes on when there's 50 miles remaining.

Wow I find these terrible returns to the gallon,I have always had diesel cars in the past.
The wife will be using this Zetec 1.6 petrol to get to work and back 16 miles motorway and 3 miles A roads each way 5 days a week i was hoping for more than the 36 -40mpg most seem to be getting from petrol engines
If I had known this before I would not have ordered a Zetec s 1.6 Petrol,with modern engineering I expected around 50MPG across the board, my old escort van diesel returns over 50mpg and its 12yrs old. shaped like a brick and as not had a service in 12mths.
The wife's current car a Merc 270 Diesel returns 41 across the board and is a heavy 270 cdi, my BMW 330D used to give 52mpg and I give it loads of heavy right foot, if the little Fiesta drinks like petrol is going out of fashion I will be getting shut and returning to a older German diesel

07' 1.4 zetec climate

Live about 2 miles away from work, so short trips every day bar 40mile drive on a tuesday.

Have yet to see 300 miles on the trip on an average fill up. Generally about 250-280 nearish to the red.
Have had about 350miles from a single tank once as i went on a long drive of about 45mpg going average speed of 67mph

I drive the 1.6 TDCI. I'm still on my first tank :) but so far I have driven 150 miles and I still have 3/4 a tank left. Currently averaging 47.8 mpg but it seems to be rising as it was 38 mpg the other day. How long does it usually take for a new engine to reach it's optimum?

Around 49 mpg if its a long clear motorway run, or shorter trips to work I get around 45 mpg. I drive carefully and usually try to eak out every mile so I get 375+ to a tank quite easily! Not bad for a Zetec S so I'm happy!

I have a round trip of 40 miles, mostly on dual carriageway Mon-Fri
During the weekends i'm running around town to football or people's houses and the likes.
I can get 350 miles from a full tank, with a boring drive, but if i'm a bit more heavy footed then it's around the 300 mark
I believe i get roughly 42 mpg's...
