Just done a Eco drive in my Zetec S and managed 65.6mpg on a 30 mile run home from Liverpool on a full tank :) attachicon.gifImageUploadedByFord OC1408301107.584364.jpg

Not to rubbish your achievement but I could get this kind of MPG every day on my 15 mile journey to work. It's the trip back home that spoils my average.


The fact you say it was "on a run home" indicates that this wasn't a 'there-and-back' figure, so it's hard to know if it's impressive or not. For all we know this could be a 30mile downhill run.

The link won't work but at that price it will be a business lease and probably limited to 5000miles per year


It's a personal lease at 8000 miles per year. As always on lease schemes there's an up front charge. £900+VAT in this case.

I'm not sure if dealers widely advertise this but you should check if your employer is on the 'Ford Advantage authorised company list'.


Loads of larger companies are on the list (NHS/ASDA/Debenhams/RBS/DHL/John Lewis/etc) and it gets you 2 years free servicing and 2 years extra breakdown cover. My employer (SELEX) is on the list and I know quite a few people who have benefited from it.


Unfortunately I cant find a working link to the full company list but here's the other details:

And whilst dab radio would be nice, I really don't like the layout of all those buttons compared to the standard radio



You can have DAB without switching to the cluttered Sony headunit. Looks the same as the standard radio.
