I fuelled up yesterday after work, and this week I am experimenting using the cruise control where possible (given traffic conditions), on my longer stretches of A1/A19 to work and back.

 

Haven't used it much yet, and it'll be interesting to see if setting the cruise at 50-60 helps my daily/weekly economy.

New member here, bought a Focus Estate 1.6 Econetic (90PS) last week on a 58 plate. Registered in 09 but built 12/08. So far I'm getting (according to the onboard computer) 47mpg, which isn't bad considering I've alternated between a 15 mile run to work across country roads and a bit of town driving.

 

It's a vast improvement to the 1.8 petrol Zafira I was driving and the road tax difference (£30 vs £200) is certainly not to be sniffed at!

 

All in all Im currently a very happy Focus owner :D

Well, after my week of driving using the cruise control where possible (keeping the car between 50-60mph on dual carriageways), my economy this week has risen a touch to 50mpg.

 

What I have noticed though, is when the cruise has the car set at 60mph, the instant fuel economy on the trip computer fluctuates between 63 and 68mpg, depending on the road condition. So on a motorway run, I guess its safe to assume that's the kind of mileage I'd get at 60mph.

 

So I think where possible, I'm gonna keep using the cruise for decent dual carriageway stretches of my commute, but clearly is the 'around the doors' bit in between that's pulling my average down to 45-48ish, depending how heavy footed I am.

1.6 petrol with 15k miles on the clock does 38mpg locally and 44mpg on a run. And its getting better the more miles I put on it.
