In Topic: Ecoboost 1.0T Mpg & Ecomode Owner Results

25 April 2013 - 08:14 PM

Had our Fiesta 1.0 zetec ecoboost for 2000 miles now. Great litlle car and engine seems very smooth but bit concerned on fuel consumption. Book says 53.3, 65.7 and 76.3 mpg for the three cycles and a couple of dealers have said look for around 10% less than these in real life. I would hope for around 55 - 60 overall.

 

Even on a run to Lake Distrct  and back we are only getting 48-49 which seems disappointing and 43/4 around town.

 

Have checked average mpg readout against tank to tank calculation and it seems about right

 

Assume at this stage I am an economical driver (I can get 42mpg out of my volvo v70d auto on the same run).

 

What are the rest of you getting?
