I'm averaging 50MPG now, it was about 48MPG the other week and I don't drive slowly.

Have something to contribute?

now mine has a few thousand miles on the clock its getting around 44-46 mpg which i'm happy with!


I've done about 100 miles from this tank and am averaging 45mpg too. With fuel prices so high at the moment it looks like we're all going to be a bit more gentle on the loud pedal.

are there any derv owners getting close to the magical combined value of 64mpg?

i'm miles off.. everyone keeps telling me the engine needs to be broken in and i should wait until 20000miles until i get those figures, surely thats just BS?

1.4 petrol..

I filled up and reset the average mpg before going for a 130 mile drive last week, mainly main roads but with two trips through town and a fair bit of twisty B-roads, and the average was 47.9mpg!

It has now dropped to 43mpg with a few days of the 6 mile trip to work, as long as it stays over 40 I'll be happy. I'm only on my 2nd tank of fuel since getting the car and I'm pretty impressed so far - it's waaaay better than my old focus was doing. :)

Would be be that I need to go for long drives to get the high MPG, the 12 miles to work and 12 miles back an't doing it, plus I seem to do twisty country roads on random drives!

it's doable at 50mph but who drives that slow in reality.



on a side note, i was getting abismal economy out of my 1.6 derv but after kicking off at ford they had the car in and reset and updated the PCM and now economy is far better and am hitting 50mpg around town which isn't far off the 54mpg claimed in the book.. well happy :)

I drive the 1.6 petrol mark 7 zetec s and a Merc C class 2.7 diesel i get 32mpg from the little light weight modern ford with all the Eco technology built into it and 51.2mpg out of my 10 yr old heavy none eco built Merc on the same journey,
I made a mistake buying this Fiesta and will admit it it was the fact I had a scrapper to put in that made me get a brand new car, I now wish I had sold the scrapper for a few hundred quid put the rest of the money together and bought a high quality well built car with good return of fuel like a BMW 330 around 4 yrs old more luxury, better miles to the gallon and a better sell on price in 2 yrs time,
The build is no good on Ford, the after care is no good from Ford, the MPG for such a small modern car is quite frankly terrible, the nasty water based paint is showing more chips every Sunday when I wash it, For a sports model its slower than most standard cars even has the old very heavy drum breaks on the back.

Out of (genuine) interest, do you reckon you'd feel the same way if you had the 1.6 TDCi? If you compare to the equivalent petrol Mercedes and BMW, it wouldn't perhaps look so stark!

I now have a 1.6 petrol ZS.

I got 51.9 mpg on the drive from Peterborough to the South Coast when I took delivery, I am getting 42.3 mpg on my drive to work (26 miles each way, mix of single/dual carriageway, motorway and a few 30/40 limits.

Drove like an absolute angel yesterday to see what I could get and got 56.2mpg on a 20 mile journey B)

My 1.6 petrol is giving my better mpg with 1k miles on the clock that my 1.4 petrol did after 17k miles

Im running on 17"'s too
