In Topic: Real Mpg Of Ecoboost Engines

21 April 2014 - 09:15 AM

I get about 430 miles out of a tank so that's about 47mpg. I can get in the 50's if I drive a bit steadier

I'd say I do 80% motorway, 20% town. On a steady run across EU I'd expect you to get around 50mpg.

Had you just done some heavy reversing? When I first got mine to coolant used to get seriously hot when reversing up my drive.

Driving sensibly (65-70mph) & mainly motorway I get consistently around 430 miles, so you should be fine!

Thanks for the response.  I have read good feedback on the ZS and my only concern was durability of the engine and mpg but begining to realise I'm looking into it too much!


Well I have done something I'm not used to which is 'impluse buying' (well not used to when it comes to large sum of cash that is)!


I have secured a 5 month old Zetec S 1.0 125 with Leather styling pack, Privacy glass and City Pack for 13k .

I'm well pleased :-)

You've made a great impulse purchase there then, excellent value! 

When do you pick it up? I bet your excited.

Im looking at Zetec S or Titanium X 1.0 123bhp with some options thus bringing the cost close to ST.
What sort of MPG should I be expecting driving sensible and hammering the 1.0 ecoboost 123bhp?

According to the below links the average is 46.6



I've got a Zetec S, had it around 2 monhts, and have done 1800 miles. 


When I first picked it up I got around 47mpg with mixed driving. 50/50 town & motorway.

Now that I'm using it to go to work, which is 90% motorway at 75mph with a bit of stop/start due to traffic conditions, I'm getting 51mpg per trip computer. (I still open it up for overtakes/slip roads)

I did 460 miles on a full tank then it took 41 litres (9 gallons) to fill it so about bang on 51mpg real world as well.


I fully expect that 55+ would be achievable with less traffic/70mph.
