Personally, since I switched to Shell petrol, I refuse to go back to supermarket stuff. ~I've seen a minimum 3mpg increase from the switch, and if I go for Vpower, its more like 8.  

 

Goes to show that a couple of extra pence is actually worth it.

Had our Fiesta 1.0 zetec ecoboost for 2000 miles now. Great litlle car and engine seems very smooth but bit concerned on fuel consumption. Book says 53.3, 65.7 and 76.3 mpg for the three cycles and a couple of dealers have said look for around 10% less than these in real life. I would hope for around 55 - 60 overall.

 

Even on a run to Lake Distrct  and back we are only getting 48-49 which seems disappointing and 43/4 around town.

 

Have checked average mpg readout against tank to tank calculation and it seems about right

 

Assume at this stage I am an economical driver (I can get 42mpg out of my volvo v70d auto on the same run).

 

What are the rest of you getting?

Oh, by not resitting the average trip you messuring the average mpg since you owned the car, by restitting at every fueling youl measure that tank. Personal i leave mine and record real world figure based on filling tank recording litres filled and mileage covered on a spreadsheet.

Try this. It can everything you would ever think of https://play.google....2VyLmFjYXIiXQ..

personally interested in if you putting in Reg or Super unleaded. Those i have talked to who put super in tend to get more MPG Fords figures are quoted as being done with Bp Ulitmate. Although i personal dont use that stuff. Worth trying Super because if you see the same increase i did after putting in V-power you'l be at your 10% for town driving.

 

For the trip to the lake district, was the car loaded up at all?

 

Personally i havent taken much notice of the motorway figures as i cant see there being enough torque to get it if you have a heavy car at motorway speed, that diesels selling point. If empty then hmmm not good.

 

Oh i am on 48mpg on my last tank pure town driving at nearly 500miles old.

Well that's another reason to add to the list not to get the dreaded apple phone :P

 

Though it does say I'm getting 13.2mpg which is pretty wrong...

Afternoon all, first post here. My friend and I bought a Fiesta Zetec 1.0 Ecoboost about a month ago. We've both gone roughly the same distance (about 1200 miles)  most of those miles from long motorway journeys and we're averaging between us about 45mpg, now this whilst this isn't bad mileage its nowhere near what Ford advertised (65.7mpg average, 53.3mpg urban, 76.4 extra urban). Now I'm aware that official MPG figures are always exaggerated surely getting roughly 65% of their estimate amounts to false advertising? I never expected 100% but somewhere around the 84% mark. I'm sure its not my driving being uneconomical as I've got 'full marks' on the eco performance whatsit on the dashboard and I've even earned myself a nice little on screen trophy for my advanced eco driving prowess. I've checked honest John and it seems this is the average for the car. Now I've been reading on here for a while that it takes a while to 'break the engine in' in order to gauge a more realistic mileage figure, but what are the chances of the car getting an extra 10mpg or more and how long does it take to get to a more accurate figure? What kind of MPG are you guys getting if you don't mind me asking? I called Ford today about it and they recommended I take it back to the dealer and get them to check there is nothing wrong with the car, I think its safe to say there won't be, and it'll be a bit of a waste of time to take it there in order for them to tell me that the car is fine and its just a case of Ford inflating their mileage claims, but if this is the case is no one else going to look for any form of compensation? I've seen people on here mention their MPG on this car and seem to be quite happy with it, and I'm happy with the car, I love the way it drives and a lot of things about it but the MPG claims surely amount to false advertising and being sold a car on worthless claims of exceptional mileage. Is anyone else feeling the same and what do you intend to do about it, if anything? This is the first brand new car I've ever bought and though I'm very happy with the car itself I bought the car because of the economy advertised.

I just had a 1.0 Ecoboost for 3 days whilst mine went in for repainting, had 620 miles on it and I was getting 46.4mpg around town with 51.7mpg on 3 motorway runs which isn't so bad comparing to their original figures, but you're never going to hit their mpg whatever you do, 40's are to be unexpected I'm afraid. All manufacturers do this, and there's not much you can do about it I'm afraid.

Hi all, (New member )

Had a Titanium X 1.0 Ecoboost for around 2 weeks now with just over 500 miles on the clock.

So far the average mpg is around 42/43 mpg. A mixture of short to medium journeys, no motorways yet.

The main reason for my post is the Ecomode option. From what others are saying, this is available and gives your personal economy performance. So far so good. My problem is that this Ecomode option is greyed out and cannot be selected.

Anybody had similar issues?

Cheers

I think Ecomode is a bit pants if honest, no matter what mine says I'm an amazing Eco driver, even after I reset the trip and boot it. 120mph in 3rd gear - full speed rating and gear changing!

 

Might be a slight exaggeration, but still :P

Agreed....

 

Not to invade on the thread, but a valid comment made here...  I have the ZS TDCi, and did a tank on the Sainsburys stuff since it was at a rock bottom price.  Whilst bearing in mind i have only had my car 2-3 weeks, i did a full tank range for 445 miles with 52 53.5 mpg averaging.

 

Well i then saw an Esso gas station even cheaper, so filled up there when the tank was empty again, and as of last night, the trip miles showed 498 miles and 56.7 mpg...  Both driven on the same journey, at the same rate of knots....

 

 

Hmmm....  Car bedding in tank by tank?  Or was it because what was in the tank was better grade and not cheap stuff?

 

Oh and....ALWAYS fill your tank at night when the temperature is cooler.... You get more for your buck....

I have just returned from a week's holiday in Cornwall. I have a 100bhp Ecoboost Titanium (petrol). I was not impressed with the fuel consumption around town at home  about 35ish but according to the car's computer I managed to achieve 57mpg for the trip back to the Midlands using the M5 and A30 at a steady 2000 rpm - no complaints from me!
