In Topic: Is My Focus Meant To Be This Thirsty?

30 June 2013 - 01:46 AM

if it's a 5-speed & you are mostly doing 70-80mph then yes, it'll be thirsty.

I'm averaging ~35mpg in the summer (less in winter) in mixed motoring babying it.

By comparison I came from a heavier Toyota Avensis estate with the same 2.2 turbo-diesel that you had in your Lexus & I would average 42mpg winter/45 summer (on largely motorway work I would get ~55mpg) without having to try.

For high speed motorway work the Focus badly needs that 6th gear for better mpg.

A 1.8 petrol is fairly thirsty on fuel mine only did about 33mpg on mixed use.

sounds about right for mine too.

By comparison my Toyota Avensis estate with a 2.2 turbo-diesel (bigger, heavier & more powerful car) averaged around 42-45mpg.

If you are doing average mileage it's going to cost you £hundreds more in fuel per year.

Thanks for the reply.

It seems to have stopped for the moment so it could well be a poor connection that is being jiggled about.
