Pretty pleased. Just used Esso fuel in my car for the first time. On a 160 mile round trip I pulled 43.8MPG average peaking at 44.1. Don't think that's too bad considering I had a load of a full P.A and music equipment which weighs a tonne.

Fifth Gear did a comparison last year of supermarket and advanced fuels and found the differences were negliglible in both mpg and bhp, guess the same applies to standard fuels as well, so no point in paying more than you absolutely have to. Perhaps if you ran an advanced fuel constantly it might help reduce engine wear or even improve overall performance but weigh the price differences and is it really worth it?

My previous car, 2008 Mondeo 1.8 diesel returned only around 42mpg over a 4 year period, my petrol zetec s is still running at 37 which I think is pretty good, I know it is a smaller lighter vehicle but I definately drive it much harder than the diesel. I think the only real difference with diesel is if you do a lot of motorway cruising.

I only used the standard Esso fuel as it was 138.9 which I was pleased with as the other 2 around here are 141.9 and 143.9! I then passed another Esso later on which was 141.9. All this inconsistency with prices is a nightmare!

I do a lot of motorway driving and when it wasn't too cold I was getting 50-55mpg but recently it's always below 50mpg and not just by a little. Bit disappointed but I suppose I'm not the most economical driver.

Depends on how you drive.
I tried out driving differently to see the distance I get..

For £10, driving normal (shifting gear at 2k revs) I can get about 50 - 60 miles sometimes a bit more.
Reving up and red lining (reving 1st, I can get to 30, then 2nd can get up to 70-80 I havent attempted redlining 3rd or 4th)
can eat up the petrol in no time at all.

Fair to say, I try drive in 4th gear as often as possible,5th for motorways.

The missus has just passed 1150m in her Ecoboost (100PS).

We reset the trip at 1000 and pre 1K it was averaging 37.8mpg, now its showing 41mpg avg. Not as good as the documentation would suggest but its heading in the right direction.

my 1.0 125 ecoboost has just ticked over 500 miles and is showing an average of 40 mpg and that is 95% town driving with the other 5% on A roads.
Will be taking it on a longish run this weekend and will report back with the mpg over the trip

I get between 51 and 55mpg - which is pretty darned good for semi-rural driving.

Love my lil' mk 7 Fiesta: cheap as chips on fuel compared to my beloved ol' mk 1 Focus!!

:)

I'm very late to the party I'll admit, but I'm new to the site too so shoot me :)

I've averaged around the 55mpg mark since day 1 in my 1.4 TDCi, on a daily drive of around 35miles round trip. This is about 2.5miles A roads and 15miles of motorway. Other, non commute driving driving is roughly 60/40 in favour of A roads. Overall average speed seems to fall around the 30mph mark. It seems I could probably expect around mid 40s from a petrol version so maybe diesel isn't necessarily ideal for me in my circumstances, until it comes to UK getaways.

On a trip from Bolton to Loch Lomond last year I was impressed with the mpg I got going up there. A quick trip to one of the lakes on the way through and staying in the 56-70mph range all the way, not counting roadworks (I drive a truck for a living and 56 is so ingrained into me it's hard to move away from it) and I actually got it to high 80s mpg without cruise control. I'm swapping in for a 1.5TDCi Titanium soon so hopefully these trends will continue, especially with price of the stuff these days.
