Having my new car for three days my miles per gallon have steadied at 33mpg, I know that's not particularly special but the engine is still very new, just wondering what everyone else is getting and if anyone is matching what Ford advertised?

Im getting 47 which is great as far as I am concerned (at the moment) coz my pupils all crawl along and sit there at intervals for ages and then I give her some welly after work coz I feel sorry for her!!

And only done 300odd miles.

BUT Ford claim well over 60mpg average....we shall see!

As at present I do not own a Fiesta so can not give any direct mpg figures.
But what I do want to say is that since joining this forum I have seen many postings related to mpg and many people are not too happy with their results.
Overall it appears that for a small car the Fiesta is one of the poorer performers with respect to mpg.
What is it about this car is general, particularly the petrol versions that give uncompetitive mpg figures. Many other larger cars can do much better than the current Fiestas. I have heard/seen recorded that there is a software update that can improve this but little is recored on this forum.
Many people buy this car based upon the published mpg figures only to be disappointed when they try to achieve them in the real world.
Many be I've got it all wrong but in the present economic climate running cost/mpg do have a bearing on what to purchase.

While I don't have the Fiesta (durr!), I almost guarantee that it's down to driving style. Ford quote mpg for my Focus, and I can best it easily - as long as I pay attention. 69 mpg is about the best I've got from my diesel. Ford say no more than 65 extra-urban cycle at a push.

In reality, 55mpg is fair at a good mix, from how I drive and where I drive.

It depends alot on the type of driving too, like city driving is constant stopping starting in low gears where motorway is just crusing in high gear with revs about 3500 at 70

I average about 37 to 40 (very rarely 40) in my petrol Zetec-S... I tend to be a bit heavy footed with the accelerator though and do alot of stop/start journeys, not much motorway driving, so I can't complain!

I'm getting about 34-35mpg over the first 1200 miles in my 1.6. That includes a lot of short urban journeys and I have a fairly heavy right foot.

Here we go again.

It's very unlikely that you will attain the mpg figures issued by the manufacturers due to the figures they get being done in laboratory conditions and on a rolling road.

It's been done to death before.

Last debate on MPG.

TITANIUM
1.6 Ti-VCT
19,000m - Mosly motorway, but a lot of town, city, county roads
7 months old
Riding on X-Pak 17" Alloys

MPG (according to the cars computer):

at present 44

Range between 42 driving hard and max of about 46 with cruise set to 70 on the M/way in perfect conditions

One thing though is that its worth doing manual calcualtions to find out actual MPG

ie. brim the tank, do a couple of hundered miles on the m/way, brim the tank again and do the maths youself. Same goes to get figures for town driving.

Personally I would expect a difference of between 3 and 6 mpg, but have not tested this yet myself
