Mondeo MPG

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

finally ditched my V70 due to 27mpg from a diesel! And gone back to ford buying my 3rd mondeo this time a 2011 140ps tdci estate

 

what is the mpg people are getting? I filled up 61 litres and computer said 461 miles till empty that works out to be about 34mpg which seems worryingly low when people here have said 650 to a tank?

 

my last 52 plate mondeo estate 130ps did 53mpg all town driving short journeys and never warm!

 

Have I bought a Volvo in disguise? Admittedly I haven't used a tank yet only done about 15 miles and the computer has only dropped about 10 miles so maybe it will get better but 34mpg seems low

 

its just been serviced and I'm going to terraclean it next month

 

thanks

russ

mk4 Mondeo 2008  onwards and I'm getting 33mpg, which is poor to say the least.

Don't forget that the tank range depends on the avg mpg, so if it's just done a lot of small/town work then yes it will be low, watch that figure go up on a run

Question to mondeo mk5 owners:

Does heated windscreen in front(if present) and back automatically on when t gets below 4 degrees.

Just discovered this on focus "15 made. 

This thing takes mpg down.

My last mondeo had this also, it draws a matter of milliamps you would never even notice the extra fuel from this it's so minute.

 

have done 80 miles now the computer still reads 420 and started at 460

It not milliamperes it's several amps hence it's not working if the engine is not running and yes the extra load does affect the mpg but hard to notice as it cuts off  after x minutes time I don't know as I cancel as soon as screen has cleared.

Same engine in my Volvo C30 - pants for mpg but good running and power. Max I ever saw on a long run was 51 - 37-39 I averaged usually.
