Getting better and better then, is that using cruise control going at 70mph? Or slower? Fingers crossed it'll keep improving for you!


Yeah that was 70 and sometimes 80 shhh lol

Yeah I honestly can't wait now, this week can't go fast enough! Think it will be one hell of an upgrade from a 1.25 Fiesta with 82ps to the 1ltr 125ps!! Couldn't believe how quiet it was in the test drive but still with so much power available  :)

After picking up my Focus on Saturday I've done around 100 miles and it is currently averaging 33mpg so not terrible. I have been testing out the acceleration too so once I've had my fun it should go much further per tank!

 

It is such a good drive though, no complaints so far so would recommend to anyone!!

Hi there I've just joined this site so my reply maybe a bit late. However a few months ago I decided to really test the economy. This is what I achieved on an engine with 6k miles on the clock. 

 

On a long run (600 miles) to Switzerland cruising at a steady 65 I managed 52 mpg. On the way back holding around 72 I got 49 mpg.

 

On mixed driving I've been getting around 43 and on urban only driving 38 mpg.

 

Now we don't all go on long trips everyday but it proved it could handle a long run although a lot of drivers wouldn't want to stay at 65 for too long.

 

For your information I didn't take these figures from the display but simply took note of the miles driven and how many litres it took to fill up again.

 

It hasn't achieved the official figures but I can forgive it as it's so great to drive (especially through the mountain passes) plus the refinement was light years ahead of my old Mark 1.

 

Hope this helps.

To be honest I was delighted by its long distance economy and never expected to reach the official figures. My Golf never did either (but the Focus is far better to drive)

Just received my 1.0T last week while I was off work, spent a lot of time in town average dropped to 32.8 mpg :-s.

Now back to my daily routine today it has started to climb already at 34 mpg hopefully will it will keep on climbing.

Such an easy car to drive smooth & can't wait till I've run it in, so I use the full beans :-)

You'll have lots of fun driving it - it's the first car I've had for quite a while that makes me want to actually go out and drive for the sake of driving.

Hi all I'm new to all this and was wondering if someone could help. I recently bought a 2013 focus 1.0 ecoboost and noticed that it only revs to 4000rpm when parked? It revs fine when driving just wondered if this is normal or is it a problem? Thanks

The Ecoboost is very economical on long runs but isn't around town or mixed. See my above post from November

I did a motorway run yesterday 120 mile round trip and got 58mpg doing a little over 70 we'll pleased with it! I'm getting low 30's round town so not so good! I honestly think overall the focus st would be more economical!
