Sorry, but if you're getting 32mpg you're either doing all town driving or you are caining the engine.

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


A big part of that is probably because the engines less strained under normal driving. I'm getting the same economy from my mk7 as I did from my 1.25 - far better on the motorway.

Well, Ive had the car 11 days. There was £10 Petrol in it. I put 40 more in it and my mum has put 20 in it. in 11 days =| I was thinking this isnt good, but I have done almost 500 miles.(All @ 117.9p)

My trip comp average has gone up from 30.1 to 33.7(dips between 33.2-33.7 depending on the loud pedal use)

95% of this has been on busy city streets, 20,30,40mph roads with the System Up and Windows down and a passenger as well most of the time. Only had it on the motorway once for about 15 miles and then I might have been doing a tad over the speed limit very occasionally. For a new engine its not dooing too bad I think.

Ive just checked out my "real" life mpg and its 38.28mpg

Show off! You are right though... I'm getting 40+ quite consistantly now so with a diesel it definitely required.

My Home to motorway 2 miles motorway to work pull off 17miles, A road 2.5 miles arrive at work then return 5 days a week driving with caution no hard revving no silly speeds no heavy breaking and using all gears.

All of this is music to my ears :D ;) I've been living on 20-30MPG for the last three years and I cannot wait to get my hands on the Fiesta and benefit from the 'improved' MPG!

I have had my 1.6 Petrol fiesta for over a week and have done 340 miles so far and it says on the computer i still have 70 miles left.
So that would make over 400 miles out of a tank (and this tank was filled up by the dealer so i doubt they filled it to the brim).
I have been driving pretty steady (about 80% motorway miles between 60 - 70 MPH).
This MPG is miles better than i was expecting...

My Fiesta's MPG has been creeping up at every fill. It's now above 40mpg for mainly town driving with some B roads. When I first got the car, this only gave me 34mpg.

I've been driving fairly aggressively as well and it's still staying up. Happy bunny

I really need to get in on this and defend the Fiestas MPG, my car (Titanium 1.6TDCi [95]) has now done just over 700 miles and the average MPG is sitting pretty at 53.9 according to the trip computer and 53.7 according to the interwebs and a calculator.
Now looking at the Ford website they quote 54.3MPG for urban, and as my average speed was only 23mph i would call that pretty urban...
Im not driving like a saint, and im not stretching every gear to the limit, but i am getting, near as damnit, what they quote.
Im keeping my receipts so i can keep an accurate log and i'll keep hitting this post everytime i fill up, which should be every 10 days or so.

Hope this helps
