At new 50 - 60 in an Eco is probably average until run in, just bare in mind diesel's take a good running in (10k+). I'm now getting 68 in my Zetec S diesel after 18k (since about 9k)

Really depends on how far you are going with your average journey.

400 ish for me I always fill up when it comes up 50 miles left normally takes about 38 litres.

I am of the opinion there is something wrong with mine though its just convincing ford

Lol, usually like 400, when I said I'm getting 68mpg, I meant I did that on 1 journey, up until the point where I decided to go over some moorland. Unfortunately, I find it difficult not to do 80 on motorways and such. Perhaps the only redeeming factor is I don't really use breaks to slow down, usually use gears and usually shift at 2K rpm.

Have had a problem lately though of not being able to get more than 50mpg though with the last 2 fill ups, one with Tesco fuel (which I'll never use again) and the other with BP Ultimate, hoping this fill up might be back to normal after a new water pump and timing belt. Trouble is I take it to Ford and get a 1.2 that won't even fetch 35mpg -.-

It's strange that I seem to have the worst mpg for a diesel 47mpg and still get 400 to a tank the same as everyone else who get more like 55-60

I do too, just the transition from from a given speed to 60 could probably be done more economically, and I always cruise at 80 on motorways, 46mpg constant there. Don't forget though we don't have cruise :P

Well the time consuming bit from what I saw when Nath did mine is fitting the new steering wheel fascia as you have to remove the airbag. Not sure about modifying the as built file
