My 1.0 125bhp Zetec S claims to do around 44 MPG, but when I actually measure it it's nearer 39 MPG.
I mostly do short trips of around 7-8 miles, so that's probably why it's somewhat low.

On a "funny" sidenote my Wife's Ford Ka 1.2 petrol (with 69 bhp) does about 39 MPG as well.
So I believe the Ecoboost is rather economical for its power.

Aaah I see, that makes excellent sense - I believe mine hits 2 bars in about 2 miles as well.

GlynnZS: My bad, I was converting to US MPG, apparently there's a rather large difference
I get around 39 MPG when converting to UK MPG (14 KM / L in the metric system, which is used in Denmark)
When you say your car is warm, does it mean you have 4 bars in the temperature gauge?
Mine takes about 4 miles to reach 4 bars.
Temperature around here is usually around 5-6 degrees celcius in the morning.

I only do short trips in my Fiesta - roughly 7,5 mile to work and the same back later that day.
This in turn means a lot of my driving is with cold engine, and in turn my MPG suffers badly.
I get around 33 MPG in the Fiesta on average - the trip to work is part highway (50 mph speedlimit) and part city (30 mph speedlimit), it's probably around 50/50 highway and city.
Hope this helps in regards to fuel consumption.
