Oh and PS. Is my car supposed to tell me when to change gear? Cos I can see there is an up arrow on the dashboard... but it never lights up. Is my car just lacking that feature or is it broken?


It's standard on the Econetic Fiesta, then was rolled out to other models (I believe) in 2010.

The dash on all Fiesta's in the same - to cut down costs. You have the light, it just doesn't do anything.

FWIW My Diesel 60 place Econetics tensd to do 60.5 to 61 most times.

Not sure how the computer calcualtes it as if it's over total miles hard revving should never make much odds but sometimes does.

I've had my 2012 Econetic since 1st March. I do 60 miles per day in rush hour on A3/M25/M3 and it has gradually crept up to it's current average of 60.2 MPG. Will try the real test at some point, when I remember the method (fill/drive/fill/convert/divide)!

That does sound low...

If I drive at 50-60mph taking care with the throttle I comfortably get 64-65mpg. If I'm really careful it creeps up to near 70mpg.

Normal stop start driving on a cold engine never drops below 53-54mpg.

Not done 1k miles yet so expecting things to improve a bit over time.
1.4 manual petrol getting 45mpg on the trip and 40mpg according to my spreadsheet. Not too shabby and although I have been careful (particularly keeping revs down since its new) I haven't been driving particularly economically either.

I have a 1.6 Tdci with about 30k miles. It travel 90 per day with about 80% of the journey on the motorway at 65mph on cruise control. I'm averaging 50mpg. My route to work does have a few large gradient which affect the mpg and i have 17" alloys and wider tires. On longer flat runs I have had 60-70mpg. So depending on how you drive and the terrain, I can see it varying a lot. However, I did expect to get a lot more from it as I also had access to a company 2.0 gt tdi golf, when I drove that I could get 50+ mpg even when driving fast.

Presumably though the Golf was a six speed? That can make a big difference depending on your routes.

Wife had a 110bhp TDI 2.0 Golf SE 5-speed non-bluemotion bog standard, it would push high 50s without trying. 5th was extra high ratio, as covered elsewhere on here, mpg wise it seriously embarrassed my 1.6 TDCI Titty when logic would have thought the smaller less powerful 1.6 Ford should have been more economical. The Fester should have a much higher 5th or ideally a 6th gear.

She now has an Audi A3 with the 'economy' 1.6 TDI engine with the dual clutch 'auto' box that should always be in the right gear. It also has stop-start technology etc. Ironically its 5-10mpg worse than the Golf was.... progress?

Seeing it's the same engine as the Citroen's I don't see why they don't use a 6 speed, as that's what they use >_>

I would think either packaging or cost or a combination of both.

Im currently running an average of 42mpg in my S1600, which is mostly motorway driving, although this is slowly increasing the more motorway miles Im doing. Pretty pleased with it.

I've got the S1600 134bhp and I average 40 mpg to work and back which is a mixture of town and country roads but on a run down south last Sunday I got 49mpg for mainly motorway driving........well impressed with that! Car's only done 8000 miles so it'll improve slightly as the engine gets a bit looser.......who needs a oil burner with mpg like that!!!
