Alot of folk are saying the quoted figures are quite a bit out but are improving the more the engine gets run in so my guess is after a few thousand miles they wont be too much out

I reckon they will only be achievable if you do similar mods to those done to get the official test results:

Hi, every manufacturers mpg figures are achieved under testing conditions, not under real world driving, look at the back page of the Fiesta brochure for the disclaimer. Thus the real figure will be about 80% of what is quoted. Audi have just been taken to task by the advertising standards authority for quoting mpg figures that do not reflect real world motoring.

Hi, we've a 1.0l 100ps ecoboost Titanium X on order as well. Test drove one a couple of times and I was quite impressed with it torque output..
