Hi all

A quick introduction.

Just bought a 2009 Ford Focus Zetec Petrol in dark grey.12000 miles on the clock.

I look forward to sharing opinions with you all.

First impressions - Drives really smoothly and handles well. A little slow off the mark in 1st gear and seems thirsty. Drove to Bristol and back yesterday (240 miles) doing a steady 75mph and the trip computer says 39mpg. In the process of doing a brim calculation but looks like in reality it was about 34mpg by seeing the miles left before I need to refuel!

Will let you know how it goes.

James

Hi, Welcome, B) I drive a 2009 1.8 petrol, (you didn't give your engine cc), my on board computer is measuring very similar to the full tank to full tank mpg; on a long trip I get about 40 mpg short trips and about 37 mpg, no problems with the performance, better than my 2ltr petrol Mondeo I last had.

Hi North Sussex!

Sorry, my engine is a 1.6.

Don't get me wrong it handles very well and is extremely comfortable! I just thought I'd get a better mpg on a 200 mile run. I'll know more when I finish the brim calculation.

How do you do smileys?

Thanks

James
