In Topic: Fiesta 1.25 Zetec - Poor Mpg

How do you get into the eco mode, mine is a 1.25, 12 plate so does this have this feature.

Yours should have it, I think. The manual is pretty useless as its instruction on how to use the system menu to access eco-mode refers you to a page with the menu topography but no mention of eco mode.

On my new fiesta when you press the menu button on the centre console eco mode is the first option. Yours will probably be difference as the system has been changed with the facelift but cycle through your options and it should be there somewhere. My understanding is that your 3 indicators will be represented by flower petals (x petals out of 5) instead of just a straight number.

I've recently taken ownership of a 62 plate Fiesta 1.25 Zetec and was wondering the same thing. I assumed because of it being new, the cold weather and - like you - the town driving were all combining to give me my static MPG of 29. I shall be interested to see if this improves with time.

The eco mode rates me 5 out of 5 for shifting and anticipation, and 4 out of 5 for speed. So it can't be that I'm driving it horribly.

That's a bit disappointing isn't it? I don't quite understand though, as the eBrochure spec only lists DRL from Zetec up.

I was also under the impression that the Euro legislation re "vehicles must have DRLs" only applied to 'new models' and not strictly to facelift variants of the same model. Hence why for e.g. Citroen C1, Toyota Aygo et all have top spec versions with LED running lights, whereas the other don't have any form of DRL.

Mind you, not that it really matters just wondered what they looked like. You're probably right on about Ford making them non user serviceable - they're tightwads!
