Mpg In Econetic Ford Focus
Posted 21 July 2012 - 08:52 AM
mpg... is the average on the dash accurate-ish? I started writing down mileage and fuel amount at every fill and was going to work it out by hand and then lost the bit of paper with the numbers
The Econetic should get virtually the same figures as a stock 1.6 I wouldve thought. Flatter wheel trims and harder tyres... anything else?
I get anything from 55 to 64 on the dash. Drove 200 miles one weekend in a car with wife and 2 kids, air con on, 460 litre roofbox stuffed full of camping equipment, 20Kg 6 man tent, calor gas bottle, camping furniture, stove, the works, in the estate boot, and it still reckoned I was getting 60
I have wondered that to be honest, especially the miles left in the tank calc, completely toned down my driving and still won't get 400 miles out of this tank.
Nothing spesh on my model other than the appearance pack.
Time will tell I think with this issue

1.6 tdci DV6 focus's 2010 on were fitted with coated maintenance free diesel particulate filters.
I have seen on etis that 2.0 tdci's from 2010 have the same filter.
They Burn off the soot accumulation at set intervals exactly the same as the dpf with fluid.
The way i found out was via Etis and a couple of other members

Also they have specially fitted tyres to the econetic as part of the tests which have low rolling resistance but provide less grip, so tyres do make a difference, the make not just the pressures!
The econetic, from what I believe has a lighter engine and the oil is different. Also added are the aerodynamic additions, such as wheel trims, side skirts and front bumper. Its also lowered 10 mm from a standard focus.

My old 2005 Octavia 140bhp 2.0 diesel regularly got 55-58mpg. Same journey, driven the same way, in the Focus gets 60ish. Very disappointing, and to claim 80+ is fraudulent IMO.
