Fiesta Ecoboost 125 - Bad Fuel Consumption

Recommended Posts

Hello folks :)


I am the proud owner of a Ford Fiesta Titanium Ecoboost 125 bhp. Bought the car in April, and It have now hit a mileage of about 3400mi. I am very happy with the car, it handles very well, looks great and all. Unfortunatly there is a but... The fuel consumption. I have trying to drive economically (mixed city and highway driving) but I cant get an average above 28mpg (13 L/km in metric). That is very low compared to the advertised 55mpg. I know i am not supposed to expect whats advertised, but still...

I shift gear early, Im not speeding, not driving with cold engine, not accelerating to fast, turned off the AC. Neither am i fat thus increasing the car's total weight :). I don´t know what I am doing wrong.


I have been reading some other posts on the forum, and people gets an average around 40-50 mpg. That was about what i expected to get from my car, so i´m a little dissapointed.


Is there possibly something wrong with the car, or am I bitching over nothing ?


Thx

Don't take any notice of the info the car gives you as it's usually inaccurate. I have the same car as you and get around 330 miles out of a full tank at an average of 39 mpg. I would suggest you fill yours up again and drive till its reads 0 miles to empty then compare.

Think I have made a little mistake here :P when converting L/km to mpg, I have converted to US mpg and not British :D So I can't really use my comparison. Sry :P

On a full tank i get around 370 miles (600km) and if I convert to British MPG I get about 36 mpg.

I still Think it a bit low, compared to many on this forum. What do You guys Think ?

Looks about right for a petrol.

Here are my petrol readings from my 125bhp fiesta. I don't drive economicely and am happy with my 39 / 40 mpg.

I'm using fuellog for android by the way.

If your getting these results or better then everything is as it should be :)

370 miles is more like 39 mpg the tank is never bone dry when you fill it. Fill the car up, drive till empty, make a note of the amount of litres taken to fill and you'll get an accurate reading.
