Posted 21 September 2008 - 08:48 PM

I own a s-plate fiesta ghia with the 1.4 zetec engine.
it has got a 40 litre fuel tank which with todays fuel prices takes approx 45 to fill up. give or take a few litres.
Does any one know what mpg I should be getting? and approx how many miles to the tank. on a good run.
at the moment im getting around 28-30mpg and around 240 miles per tank.
can anyone help me?

I have 1.4 LX which had the duratec engine and on a tank of 45 i get around 400 miles so i definately think you should be getting more.

How are you driving? What type of miles are you doing (motorway/town)?
