mpg... is the average on the dash accurate-ish? I started writing down mileage and fuel amount at every fill and was going to work it out by hand and then lost the bit of paper with the numbers :(
The Econetic should get virtually the same figures as a stock 1.6 I wouldve thought. Flatter wheel trims and harder tyres... anything else?
I get anything from 55 to 64 on the dash. Drove 200 miles one weekend in a car with wife and 2 kids, air con on, 460 litre roofbox stuffed full of camping equipment, 20Kg 6 man tent, calor gas bottle, camping furniture, stove, the works, in the estate boot, and it still reckoned I was getting 60 :o


I have wondered that to be honest, especially the miles left in the tank calc, completely toned down my driving and still won't get 400 miles out of this tank.
Nothing spesh on my model other than the appearance pack.

Time will tell I think with this issue

Cheers guys, amongst anything I just wanted to check I wasn't being daft and make a prat outta myself at the Ford garage!

Managed to get 50 mpg today so I suppose that will do me, driving miss Daisy mind! :)
