My Fiesta has run 10.000 km by now, and i can't drive it in normal traffic and use les than 6 litres per 100 km. Can anyone do better? Should I complain?

Have something to contribute?

we're getting 42mpg on ours. But we've only done 300'ish miles so far. So does mpg get better with the more mileage you do??

We do a lot of short and speedy journeys, which probably eats more fuel eh.

I'm a woman so I don't know very much about this.. :D

MPG please :P

6 litres are 1.32 gallons
100 km is 62 miles
A quick calculation gives me 2,13 :blink: gallons per 100 miles

On my 1.4 petrol I average 37 if I caine it, 42/44 'normal' and I can get 48/50 if I drive very well. Best Ive managed was 52.9MPG on a 28mile journey.

I seem to have stuck at 39 mpg no matter what I do but, in fairness, this is with climate control on all the time.

The figure above is for short journeys--I'm sure that I'll get more on a run. :)
