I'm sure I will, plus I was getting 35mpg in the Ka. Guessing that should go up by around 10mpg?

I'm not too sure tbh I've got a diesel but I'd imagine it would go up :)

I've had my mk7.5 zetec s a couple of weeks now and it's a great car :),
Seems a lot more comfy compared to my mk7,zetec s but still sporty enough.

I'm sure the zetec model will be just as good :), and you won't be driving round in a ka any longer which has got to be a bonus ;) aha

Picked the fiesta up yesterday and have to say its great! The interior is miles better and loads of gadgets to play with. The ecoboost engine is a lot better than the 1.2 duratec in the ka. One thing that worried me a bit though, when i first got in, there were 31 miles on the clock which is fine but the average mpg was 24? Managed to get it up to 30 now but was just wondering how it was so low?

Glad to hear you like it.

It will be lower until the engine beds in a bit, the more miles you do the more the mpg will improve :) so I wouldn't worry about it

Mines just over a year old now with 7000 miles , on a recent trip down to the south coast got 53mpg going and 59.3 coming back so mpg gets better as you do the mileage, even so I was getting mid 40s when it was new
