Ecoboost 1.0T Mpg & Ecomode Owner Results

81 posts in this topic

Yeah, the figures are heavily inflated, shock. Pretty sure they all do it, they test it in perfect conditions so no wonder its a lot higher in the tests.

Had 55mpg on a long run yesterday, not bad.

As I'm about to take delivery of my Red Edition Ecoboost 1.0 I am especially interested in the comments about sticking to Shell and potentially getting a worthwhile return on the Super unleaded.

Anyone done a controlled back to back and reckon it's worth it?

Also wondering whether to start it off on super or the cooking stuff.

I would add that i am a little disappointed with the MPG i get out of my 125ps Zetec S. I used to drive a little 08plate 1.0 toyota yaris and sure enough it never went particularly fast, think it had 68hp but it usually got 52-57MPG (its stated combined was 55MPG). Note this was also doing short journeys of about 12miles usually to university and back.

Anyway i have managed to hold on to all 13 petrol receipt i've had while owning my Fiesta (only owned it 6 months now and usually fill the tank completely so hasn't been hard) and I scribble my odometer readings on the back of them. The figures show the fuel i've used £446 worth of mostly Shell as its local and resulting MPG averaging at 46.9MPG. My dash MPG always states 49-53 odd MPG which is annoying now as i know its overestimating. I am also averaging 11.95p/mile. These averages have dropped quite a bit during winter. I would upload the data but dont think it will let me.

49? I'd be dead chuffed with that but I do enjoy a heavy right foot. 33mpg and worth every penny.

On motorways I get 53-55mpg on normal roads I get 43 average and in winter on normal. Roads I get 33-35 but on a lighter note I went to blackpool and back (from central scotland) and only used 3/4 of a tank

Had my black edition a week now, not a long time but I've had some really good figures out of it, you can hit over 50mpg if you're really careful on m roads, my main driving is town though, I'd be lucky to get 35ish... That's with a little bit of a heavy foot. Still really happy though!
