I can't really comment on this thread. I have only owned my MK7 1.4 TDCI since Friday last week :D But it read that it had 395miles. But I didnt reset it when I filled up, so it might have been just over 400miles.

 

In my 1.25 finesse petrol 2004reg I got between 220 and 270 miles to a tank.

MK6 1.25 Petrol - I get about 275 miles out of a full tank of £55. 90% of my driving is town driving or short journeys though. so that'l be hurting my fuel economy. My rate of acceleration probably doesn't help either...

Just done my first fill to fill calculation on my new Mk6 1.6TDCI Zetec (Climate) and it is returning 60.4mpg on mainly dual carriageway driving at a steady 70mph. Trip computer was eering on the side of caution with a reading of 57.3mpg average.

Mk7.5, i've been getting around 450-500 miles (for example, my last 4/5ths of a tank took me to southampton (190 miles each way) and back, plus some driving around down there). Most of my driving tends to be on national speed limit or motorways though, although it is quite hilly around here. So far i've done 1400 miles on about 2.5-3 tanks of fuel (i tend to refuel somewhere between 1/5th and 1/3rd fuel left depending on what i'm planning).

Can't wait to see what I'm getting. I should have filled up by now but I've only done 205 miles since I last filled up.

 

This is what I was getting in my 1.25 2004reg Fiesta Finesse...Hopefully the diesel will be much better than this!

I had 2100 miles on the clock and recorded the mpg at 66.9 mpg one trip home.  I refuelled at 528 miles with 49 miles left according to the display, in actual tank terms it was 67 miles to my calculus = 595 miles.

 

Not too bad that since i am still way off the suggested 3K mark when the engine is settled in.  I am still keeping to the speeds, i.e. not granny driving.... 30 - 40 - 50 - and 70 to 75 on motorways in my Zetec S TDCi 1.6.

 

I notice the changes too if i fill up during the day, or fill up at night!

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 thought it was a bit low too :blink:

 

 

 

 

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