Will it do it?

  1. 1. 250 miles so far, 205 left on the CPU, will it do over 400 miles before I bottle it and fill up?

    • Yes
    • No Chance it's a Ford

Pretty sure My fiesta will have nothing bad in the tank, it's filtered at the pumps these days and one of my old cars that had done 140K and made in 1991, took the filter off due to it having running issues and low and behold, didn't look any different to a new one inside, was a factory item too. complete myth imo.

Well done 65 miles since yesterday and just under half tank left,

by the way this is on poverty Tesco standard fuel too.

In already 80P in the Canary Islands, less than $60 a barrel, when it was the low last time we paid about 80P a litre, these fuel companies take the right !Removed! out of us, Govt are too frightened to tell them to !Removed! off and drop it, I also lol'd at an article on inflation hitting 1%, they compared the fuel drop saying it was similar to a wage increase, whooooo. guess I won't ask for one in the new year then.

Voted no but not cos it's a Ford. More because Ford design the trip computer to make you think you have more miles left than you do, then under 100 miles to go it reduces by 2 miles for every mile you travel lol.

Well I'm fae Motherwell and went to Blackpool and back plus stopped off in a couple towns in between (roughly 430 miles round trip) only used 3/4 of a full tank...........

Ah, your poll confused me. Just realised me error. I thought it was 400 miles on top of the 250 you'd already done! :P

I've found the range in the Focus to be pretty accurate tbh. Start with about 650 miles, end on 600 miles with 50 left on the range lol.

Is that 45mpg? Not bad for an ST!

Yeah that's impressive. I'm struggling to get 35 mpg in this cold weather, but I do quite a lot or urban driving (26 mph average when filled up today). Although I've had up to 48 mpg on a long motorway journey.

You guys shouldn't complain about the fuel price, we're paying about the same as you guys but because our Rand is down the drain at the moment we hardly get any price drop and a lot less for our money's worth, on the other hand SA is overflowing with tourists because everything is so cheap for them, I earn a average wage and yet 1/10th of my salary goes towards fuel, and I drive below the average person per year, just to give you guys some perspective

Yeah that's a lot to spend on fuel. My salary is a bit less than average in the UK but if I drive 10,000 miles in a year, fuel would only take up about 5-6% of my salary. Probably less than that if the fuel prices stay as low as they are now.
