MPG What do you guys get

5 posts in this topic

Hiya guys and girls

just a quick poll to see if after servicing my car i get better mpg than before put down you

e.g.

car : Ford focus

Fuel : Petrol

Engine and size : zetec 16v 1.6

tyres : 2 corsa 60 on the front 2 klebers on back

when was last serviced : 2 weeks ago

i got off £45.06 one fill up of £35.06 then £10

a wopping 55.6mpg for a petrol thats !Removed! good i mean i was doing mostly 50mph and 60 mph but even round the city now i can get up to 40mpg off £35 what do you lot get

bearing in mind i go from

1st --------2nd 2000rpm

2nd -------3rd 2500rpm

3rd -------4th 3000rpm

4th -------5th 2500rpm

so i change my gears a bit late i dont really rag it as my focus dont like being ragged but i drive quite quick but try not to take it over 3000rpm

MORE REVS U PUT IN THE QUICKER IT WILL DIE AND NEED SERVICING OR EXPENSIVE PARTS
