#297921 Zetec S Ecoboost 1.0

Posted by Rich T on 19 October 2013 - 10:10 AM

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.
