Fuel consumption 1.6 petrol automat

Recommended Posts

Does anybody drive 1.6 petrol automat?

What is your fuel consumption?

My one (2006) takes 11.7 litre/100km in town which is way too much.

We drive a 1.6 petrol, but a manual - we get about 43mpg - I'll have to remember the conversion factor !

I think that works out about 7litre/100k

We have the same engine, again with a manual box, in a 2007 Zetec S Fiesta, and we get about 40mpg - 7 litre/100k.  Despite the Fiesta being lighter, it has a lower final drive ratio, so revs are higher for same road speed.

My wife predominately drives the Fusion, and I drive the Fiesta - that might also account for the Fiesta using more fuel !

I think Fusion is an underated car, Small on the outside, big on the inside, with a boot like a box, with a low flat load floor, ideal for Mum in law's wheeler, Zimmerframe and wheelchair!
