Can someone that has one of these engines give me some real fuel consumption figures please?

Have something to contribute?

Couple of my mates have them and say it runs around 31mpg , I have the 1.6 125bhp and it's on 38mpg with 1600k on clock.

wickwick i believe you have the ti-vct engine which is better at fuel economy anyway provided its driven carefully the ecoboost is the same it makes you think about driving ie feathering the accelerator only using it when you need to driving smoothly and not revving the !Removed! out of it get the revs up and watch that figure dissapear before youre eyes lol

Hi, I get around 26mpg from mine around town, short journey's only. I haven't had chance to take the car on a long run yet, just hit 700 miles on the 1st Dec after getting the car on the 1st Sept :-)

Yes agree - If I drive normal and don't worry about the Eco side I can get it into 31's per gallon - so 38 - 39 is ok.

hi already posted this the other week but as you asked here is my response

My Focus eco boost 150 does in the high 30's just about all the time unless i really thrash it - done nearly 6000 miles now
I do a mix of miles, work is only 5 miles away plus other miles at weekend evening etc

Easily get early 40's on a 75mph run

just out of interest the other day i set it on cruise at 62mph on the motorway for a couple of hundred miles(it was quiet so i wasn't a road hog before someone says) and the car averaged 48mpg which i think is exceptional. Very boring though, good job it has a good sound system

cheers
Steve

Realy the moral is forget what manufacturers say u wont get the mpg they claim they do the tests in a lab with simulated weather ie a nice warm day and the rest on a flat track the real world has inclines and hills traffic pedestrian crossings each time u slow then accelerate u eat at the mpg if u use lights wipers aircon u eat away even more even the outside temp determines how fuel is burned effecting mpg ure figures are all fine

I picked up an s-max 1.6 Ecoboost [start/stop] (160PS) (2 days ago), the car read avg 18.9mpg. I have managed to up this to 31.4mpg.

In the eco menu I see anticipation 5 petal, speed 5 petals but still only getting 4 petals for gear changing. When I get through my first tank of fuel I will give you accurate figures based on actual fuel consumed and miles driven as I find the on-board computers are just a guide.

I am still getting used to the engine and car and expect these figures to climb over the next week or so.

Couple of things I would like to point out which is based on my experience with my previouse cars and that is as follows:

- Tyre pressure - I check my tyres every week, and adjust when taking load (worth investing in a portable unit).
- Winter - This time of year I find my avg mpg drops due to the cold starts even with long runs, you will see this figure improve in the summer.

Thanks for this, I had a phone call this afternoon to say that mine is now at the dealers. So fingers crossed I should have it by the end of the month.

OK, I'm a few tanks in mostly motorway but still only seeing returns around the 30mpg mark. I did one run super efficient and saw the AVG MPG reach 41mpg (95 octane fuel) but were talking 60mph on a clear motorway and full marks on the eco menu.

I decided to see what difference a higher octane fuel will have on these figures and was surprised to see the MPG values along the motorway are much more encouraging.

My wife is using the car more so I have yet to do a full tank on the 97 octane but I am interested to see what the fuel figures are with my wife driving around town for now.

I'm hoping with the 97 octane fuel to get approaching 35mpg which makes it worthwhile.

Slightly off topic, but a guide to the Focus on board computer MPG. (1.8 Petrol Estate).

This weekend I had the opportunity to check the MPG display accuracy against the maths.

240 miles on A & B roads fully laden, over 4 days (1.8 Petrol)

On-board computer = 40 MPG

Maths with (fill to fill) = 41.5MPG

Pretty close considering all the variables.

The car computer is close enough for me.

I'll be keen to hear your results on this. But just to add, I know for a fact that that my Mondeo ST diesel gave me much MPG when it was run on the more expensive diesel, and further more, was more efficient running on premium brand fuel as opposed to supermarket fuels.
