Hi chaps - Just curious to find out anyone who has the new Focus petrol 1.6 125bhp is running at MPG ? As mine is mostly town driving it's showing around 31 / 32 mpg currently ? Checking the ECO screen it shows anticipation , speed and gear change all full so top marks ?

I think I may have confused people with my question ? I feel my Focus MPG is too low at 31 / 32 MPG on the new shape focus 1.6 125 bhp ? What's everyone else's new focus running at ? Cheers

My Mk 2.5 does 38mpg around town and 43mpg on a run. I recon I could get 45mpg if I kept it at 70 though.

the real world mpg figures show 30-37mpg for the car the official urban mpg is 35 so given its still running in and loosening up and the weather ide say its perfectly fine mpg

Hi, the OP has a Mk3, and he asked for replies for that particular model. It isn't really helpful people replying that have Mk2.5 cars as they are different. Different shape, different in weight, different in gearing and different gizmo's. The only way to compare mpg is to compare like for like.

If its any consolation Chris (Wickwick), my Mk3 1.6TDCi is slightly disappointing at the moment. Just drove 250 miles from Glasgow, average on fuel computer 45mpg. Used motorway majority of way at legal speeds.

Running around rural roads and small towns(not city driving)I get 38mpg, on motorway running at 70mph (true, not speedo reading) would expect 40+
Note these are displayed figures and I am in the process of checking their accuracy. The Speedo reads high, when it shows 70, actual speed around 65. But mileage reading looks accurate.
(very suspicious of temp reading gauge, just always comes up to midpoint after a couple of mins)

it may have done more as the trip computer is a bit off i reckon mine said i had done 35mpg however doing the brim test and working it out i was getting 39mpg so i dont rely on it much to be honest perhaps a brim test is in order and compare to the computer

to be honest its still running in mate all those bits in the engine bedding in so it should start to get better though i must say my 1.6 ti-vct mpg is nowhere in real life to what ford claimed but i knew that anyway just enjoy the motor ;)

OK,OK. Calm down :D
Thought as mine has only done 2900 miles and is still loosening up, it would be an interesting comparison. So is that typical mpg for a Mk 3 as it does appear to be pretty poor?
