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

You forgot to photoshop the reflection. Who really feels the need to cheat on their mpg anyway?

Traveled to Thorpe Park today, managed 47.3mpg on the way down with aircon on. Traveling back, ended up on 42mpg. Didn't reset the trip computer for the way back though, so that's averaged over about 220 miles. I also got stuck on a log in the carpark though, so I probably spent about 15 minutes revving away like a crazy.

First fill up on my 1.6 TCDi [95] Zetec-S last week from new.
51mpg. Round trip of 50miles to work 5 days a week, 90% country B roads and a dual carrigeway.
2nd tankful is definitely lasting a lot longer, should fill up in a few days time.

Picked up our Fiesta 1.6 TDCI last Saturday seems to be hovering around 50-51mpg I'm certainly happy with that :)

Previous '07 Zetec-S 1.6 tdci averaged @53-54mpg. After a week with new (well 8 months old but new to me) Titanium 1.6 tdci its giving a little more but thats prob as I'm driving it like a comfy luxury motor not a sporty racer Zetec-S.

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

Got 2010 fiesta zetec s tdci with the 95bhp engine...I struggle to get BELOW 55mpg no matter how I drive it, If I drive economically I get over 60mpg....I am not naieve enough to rely on the trip computer so tend to work it out at each fill up...by the way I do find the trip computer to be within 5mpg of the actual mpg. I therefore drive normally for the sake of 5 mpg...its much more fun. Was looking at getting a remap but apparently none of this new model have been done yet!!! Unless someone knows different!!!

Currently sat at 41.1, did have it at .2, but not a lot higher, and I'm trying, might go back to 37 and drive it properly!!

Had a run the other week to and from work (90 mile round trip) for 2 days then a run over to my mums in Stoke and back 70mph on the dual carriage ways, stuck to speed limits :rolleyes: :P all the way.

Total distance - 371.4 miles
Total fuel - 25.05 Ltrs

MPG - 67.4 :)

Using this to calculate; Torquecars

I'm just going off my trip computer here, but managed to get 54 mpg going to and from leicester. Was pretty excited to see the total possible number of miles had risen from my usual 340mpg to 430 mpg! Of course, now that I'm back doing town driving it's dropped but it's still hovering around 52 mpg. Still got half a tank to go.
