first post on here because I became a ford owner today.
Just picked up a 2013 ford direct grand c max titaniux x. Car is fantastic inside, showroom condition, great stereo, DAB which ive never had before in a car and I can stick a 64GB USB stick in with all my music on, great.
Bought it from Evans Halshaw who were fairly good except my £20 of fuel was not included (well, I'm assuming it wasnt as the fuel light went on after 5 miles)......which brings me to my point.
I got the 1.6 ecoboost (182ps) engine after looking at the mpg figures of 45 ish and thinking if I got 35-40 i'd be happy.
On the way home though, mainly dual carriage with some country roads the mpg was only about 24mpg.
When I put the screen to display instantaneous mpg it was 6mpg going up a hill, but not a massive hill by any description.
Is this the kind of mpg I can expect in "real" driving conditions. If it is I'm not enormously impressed which is a shame because the car itself is nice to drive and is well put together inside.
Anyone else with this engine getting better mpg or are the Ford listed stats just pie in the sky?
