good, to be honest after reading this thread i was worried that the MPG of the fiesta would be poor, but im actually very happy with it!
either way its a massive change from my old Mercedes S280, that got an average of 16MPG!

:D

I do about 450 motorway miles every weekend which gives me a return of 58.4 MPG so chuffed to pieces. Especially since my last vehicle a Land Rover Freelander 2.5 v6 averaged at 13.9MPG costing me 110 in fuel each weekend!!!! :blink:

My mpg has been about 40 mpg with air con on so I'm pretty happy with that so far. I did get up to 57mpg on a short stretch of 50mph road...

I reckon we should get some kind of competition going.

My last tank was my second most successful one ever - the economy is definately improving with age! The tank was more or less exactly half motorway and half urban driving, I tried to go fairly easy on the throttle for the most part and took it easy, but still went 70 on the motorway and kept up with the traffic in other conditions. Seeing at the official average economy for the 1.6 Ti-VCT is 47.9mpg and official figures are notoriously unrepresentative I'm very happy with the cars performance. :D

Could've done better - had it at 47.9 at one point but it tailed off.

Posted Image
Approx 100 miles per tank better than my old standard.

Posted Image
Average speed included to put the figures into context a bit - it's easy to sit on the motorway at 60 and do 55 mpg!

Beat that mothertruckers. (Any one with a diesel may find this pretty easy)
