Yep I would agree with that...you can get alittle more but it all depends how you drive it and the best time you will reach optimum MPG will be on long journeys going at about 55mph (hypermiling)

This is like the Citroen C3 advert.

The Fiesta diesel's quoted tank capacity is 43 litres.

It's quoted combined fuel economy figure is 64.2 mpg.

1 litre is 0.219969157 Imperial gallons.

You have 4 hours.

43 litres x 0.219969157 = 9.458673751 gallons.

9.458673751 gallons x 64.2 mpg = 607.2468548142 miles.

yeh depends how you drive, on long motorway journeys they will go forever before needing to be filled up and they don't cost that much to fill eithier, last time i filled mine it cost about 45 from the light coming on. :)

Thanks all for your replies! I have only had it about 6 weeks, I changed from a corsa petrol to save on fuel because I am doing mostly long motorway journeys, and I only drive at 60mph on them. I am only getting max 480 miles and thats driving really gentle, bit dissapointed as I hoped to be getting at least 550 miles on a tank.

I stand corrected, young sir. My figures were for an early Mk.6, because that's what I've got to play with. :-)

Your figures dont make any sense mate

you say you get 70mpg (which beats fords claims),

so 40 litre tank= 8.8 Gallons

8.8 gallons x 70 mpg must equal 616 miles per tank full.

Yet in post 2 you tell us you get 540 miles per tank,which is 61 mpg,which is far more realistic.

Ford love giving us feeble small tanks for such large sophisticated cars.

The mk6 and mk6.5 had a 45 litre petrol tank and now its 42 litres the same as a mk3 fiesta.

The fiesta in my oppinion should have a 50 litre petrol tank and a similar sized diesel tank.

Ours (1.6tdci) says 51mpg and we just had the refuelling light come on at 320 miles :unsure: I think that says something about the way in which it has been driven this past week :ph34r:
