ok i'm currently averaging 48,4 mpg in my 140 mountune it's rather boring but it means it only costs me 20 a week rather than 30 a week to get to work at today's petrol prices.it involves not going over 3,000 rpm and not exceeding 60 mph.

II reckon I could beat this...... I learned a lot about driving economically and don't feel I got the most from the first half of the tank.....

Hi

I have a question about when the 50 miles to go message appears on your display which I hope some members can answer for me?

Ok, I filled my car up back in June and on my way to work yesterday morning, the fuel warning light came on at "50 miles to fuel up" and I fully intended to fuel up this morning but I was running late for work. I still have not filled up and there is 10 miles to go, "if I was to let the car reach ZERO", is there any reserve left in the tank and if so, how much approximately?

BTW, I will be stopping to refuel on my way to work tomorrow morning and I will then be able to work out my mpg since last refuel and I'll post back with the results.

I find the computer 'miles remaining' estimation quite inaccurate - ie. if mine said 50miles left I actually have around 75miles (I work this out by deducting the amount filled up from 40l (diesel tank capacity) which gives the true amount left and using the mpg over that tank to see what I would have got.)

Hello J I M

That sounds very low for a diesel.

Have you had it long

Just come back from our first holiday in my 1.4 petrol and covered 770 miles at an average of 51mpg.  400 of those miles were motorway at a steady 65-70.

 

What surprised me the most was how it coped with the weight of being fully laden.  We had the rear seats down and a lot of heavy stuff packed into it and yet it drove like there was nothing there.   At 3000rpm in 5th it would easily pull around slower traffic on the motorway.   Very impressed with it.

Have a 2010 1.25 mk7 fiesta, and when i fill up my range says 330 miles, but i definitely get more than that as i can keep it at 330 miles for ages, average mpg is 44mpg not very close the the combined 52 that Ford say you should get!

Hi, i get around 250 then when i fill up i have almost 6 litres in the tank, guessing this is around 300?

 

PS this is with the dial on the lower mark (no trip comp)

 

Works out around 35mpg (not bad for short trips i suppose!)

I tend to get 550 a tank according to the computer give or take a few.

 

It's a a 1.6 eco fiesta, typical drive to work is 20 miles each way on A roads/ dual carriage way and a A road that snarls up at the least provocation  (there a school on it so all the range rover owning mums and dads get in the flipping way and cause said snarl ups because they have to cross the traffic flow NOW!!!!! rather than wait for a gap)
