So it seems we should all go out and buy a 10 yr old 206 then, or maybe it was so economical cos most of the car rusted away or fell off and Casheti was just left with the seat and engine. :ph34r:

I've actually hit the US EPA highway estimate of 38 MPG in my 2011 1.6L Manual. Around town, I'm getting between 30 and 32, and combined comes out at 35MPG. Important note: I'm not in the UK, so my fuel economy figures use US Gallons, not Imperial Gallons. In metric terms, I'm pulling down about 7.1L/100km. So I'm pretty pleased with the results. And I love my Fiesta.

Another interesting side note: Americans favor automatic transmissions so much, that when I was shopping for my car I found only one with a manual transmission to test drive. Sadly, it wasn't the top trim level and it was a sedan, so I ordered mine from the factory.

Yeah its a pity you guys in the States don't have more diesel cars, in the UK my 1.6 diesel does 67 on a motorway/freeway run and 58-60 local, have a nissan sentra 2.0 auto in Florida and that averages 30mpg with a mix of highway and urban driving. Im sure with Gas prices over $4 a gallon though the penny or dime will soon drop!

Mines creeping up at each fillup, with the last one giving a calculated (no mpg computer on the edge) value of 39mpg. Bearing in mind she is an ex courtesy/demo car for Ford and has only just passed the 8000ml mark. In the Panda which is known for being a frugal car I was averaging about 40mpg so pretty happy if I can keep it at 39mpg. If anyones interested you can follow my MPG at:

My 10 year old Pug 206 was getting 68 mpg and was very fuel effecitent. My 1.4 TDCI fiesta gets 57-58 mpg when I drive well. It's a noticeable difference but otherwise it's a good car. Why did you buy a diesel if you want to regularly go 90mph!

Big difference in comparing cars which a big age gap like that is that manufacturers in recent years have started gearing and engineering cars to be at their most economical as the speeds/gears that are used in the MPG tests so that they can get highest MPG/lowest CO2 possible. With a ten year old car, this would have been a consideration but correct gearing for 70-80mph cruising would have played a part too. The most modern cars (and the more economically designed the more the effect) are happiest at or just below 60mph.

Also, a 10 year old Pug will weigh considerably less than a Mk7 Fiesta - Which is pretty much the size of an Escort - and weight makes a huge difference in MPG.

Now I am getting interested in this topic. After 15.000 km with my car I've started to understand that the Fiesta 1.6 (at least mine) has a relatively high fuel consumption. I get around 10 litres for 100 km (only city driving). With a full tank (42 litres) I can drive around 420 km. (again city driving)

Don't know what you guys think but I find it much for what the car does. By the way, I need to mention that I am not driving like a maniac :D

Does this sound bad?

That's 28mpg, 260 miles to a tank for all the UK readers ;)

Yes, very!

Do you think something might be wrong or it's fairly common? (for this petrol engine of course)

Only been driving my new 1.25 5dr Fiesta Zetec since Friday and it has approx 175 miles on the clock. Been taking it gentle so far and the onboard eco computer is rating me at 5/5 for gear changes, 5/5 for anticipation and 5/5 for speed so I can't physically drive it any more economically than I am right now. The car is showing 38mpg (approx 340 miles per tank or 16p per mile) for an average speed of 24mph which is a bit disappointing to be honest, does that sound about normal?

edit: just used the whatcar mpg calculator thing and it tells me for my car, driving conditions, driving style etc that the mpg should be 38.2 so I guess that answers my question.

I get 33.4 out of my S1600(134) but the engine has only done about 1300 miles so it needs some running in

I get 38 mpg out of my fiesta metal doing 60% motorway on my 40 mile round trip to work and cars only done 1300 miles so should get better and I do rev it alot as its got to be done, so I'm very pleased with that mpg.

MPG on my 1.4 Mk 7 Auto has worsened since I've had it from a high of 38 (calculated) right down to 32 (calculated) just recently. This contradicts the trip computer reading which shows 36.6. The computer has always read optimistically but not that far out. I might take it in to have it checked along with the (worsening) noisy brakes. Mileage is just under 9000.
Driving conditions : Very short journeys and ever so gentle right foot !
