never believe what you read in the brochure. its a guide. and usually in a lab will get these results. 

 

Same engine Different car/Map if i drive like a nun on the motorway at approx 62 mph. i get 70.6 mpg (photo's to prove)

 

I didnt drive like that all the time however but i got over 500 miles from a tank. Yes a focus. Same engine different map etc

tbh you would have been better off buying an ST


In Topic: Gear Change Ratios On Petrol Version

09 June 2015 - 07:17 PM

I know this is an old thread but. its still very relevant.

 

The Final Drive ratio of the 95ps 1.6 tdci in the fiesta is 3.37

 

The Final drive ratio of the 115ps 1.6 tdci in the focus is 3.61

 

5th Gear ratio in the fiesta with the above engine is 0.68

 

6th Gear ratio in the Focus as above is 0.622

 

so which car has a lower crusing speed

p.s yes the topic says petrol but.....
