Using this to calculate; Torquecars


Aye, that does the calculation but there are better options:
  • Try an app for your smartphone (iPhone and Android apps available for free)
  • Try logging your costs on spritmonitor and include your MPG in your .sig

Both options will track your driving costs and consumption over time. Frightening! :o

SWMBO's Titanium is averaging ~35mpg at the moment but we've not had it long. My 11 year old BMW 530D did an average of ~40mpg over the whole of 2010 which for what I was doing is pretty damn impressive for the size/weight of car. It does ~33mpg around town. I'll be tracking that on my BMW forum though :P

Well it was a big decision to change to petrol after 12 years of diesel driving but the nightmares modern diesels have brought me made the change easy!!!
I will never touch a ford with a a french diesel engine in ever again!!

So I bought a 12 month old fiesta 1.25 zetec a few weeks ago (15k on clock) and without reservation I am over the moon with it.
Just pottering around I get 45.1mpg according to computer but working it out at the pumps real mpg equates to 44 so not bad at all.
I read a lot of stories about people getting mid to high 30's from them but how hard are they pressing the throttle??

I do still have diesel driving habits which wil prob help mpg i.e. keep the revs low going through the box and lift off accelerator going downhills.

Loving it so far!!

Think it goes negative at the points when the wheels are turning forwards but the car is going backwards :rolleyes:

The best I could get out of my titanium X 1.6 petrol was a steady 39 mpg on the 12 mile commute to work but I could get 43ish on longer runs.

Now the best I get out of my beast is 28ish commuting and 32ish on a run; still, I didn't buy it for economy but you got to wonder how much more we're going to have to pay for fuel...... :rolleyes:

I feel quiet vindicated.

When I posted a thread complaining about lousy MPG from a 1.4 petrol auto, it would appear from replies that my 37MPG average (6,300 miles) was a "bad" engine and that everyone else was getting between 50 and 70 MPG.

Now I see from the poll that mine is normal and the others are "virtual"? :lol:

I am sure that some diesels are getting excellent returns but the petrol engines depend very much on size, gearbox and conditions. Downhill, with the wind behind you and all surplus weight (wife) removed from said car may return 60-70 MPG but that would be the exception.

It would be interesting to expand the poll into the various options.

i'd be amazed to see anyone get 60-70mpg from a petrol engine unless they are on two wheels.

Quiet a few FMs have claimed over 60MPG from their petrol engines.

As I said, downhill with the wind behind you, perhaps.

The best I ever made according to the "computer" was 51 MPG on a very flat Spanish motorway, no wind and an empty car doing around 55MPH.

your problem isn't your crap mpg, i don't doubt the mpg you claim, your problem is you supposed comparison to other similar cars.

Can you qualify this post, I do not see how it reflects on the MPG of the Fiesta?

In this thread, other cars are not even in consideration, just the MPG of the Fiesta.

The post was in relation to your other posts which seem to mostly be about mpg, the mpg most people on here are getting is pretty normal. There will be some people higher and some lower(like me) but overall there is nothing unusual about the mpg of the fiesta so i have no idea why we have so many posts about it.

I'm coming up on finishing a full tank in the next day or two. Got 290 miles on the dash so far, with the MTE giving me about 120, so I should be on for my first 400 mile + tank so far (possibly the warmer weather) :lol: . Previously all my attempts have come short (390 miles) with about 5 miles to empty on the readout, which I didn't want to risk, though I might have been able to squeeze it.

That's an average of just over 46 MPG (I've managed better so I'm not sure how this tank is supposedly on for more miles). I'll drop an image or two in here, for those disbelievers B) The journeys have been over varied runs, but most are trips too and from work which are about 16 miles each way, mixed motorway and A roads.
