See here from an earlier post of mine in Good & Bad - I have a 1.6 tdci (115BHP) C Max Titanium

240 mile run and filled up to brim again and got 50 mpg, the trip meter
is registering an average of 44.8 mpg. For the long run of 240 miles I
used the AC sparingly, never exceeded a speed limit and used the cruise
control in 6th to maintain 70mph as much as possible. This still comes
nowhere near Ford's advertised figures of 61.4 MPG combined or extra
urban 68.9 and urban 52.3.

58mpg on the motorway at 58/60MPH.

Using around Kent bothtown and Country 45mpg without too much trying. The mileage is now 4200miles on the clock seems to get better as the engine loosens up.

No is the answer to that, the last Ford I bought was in 1973 the service was awful in those days so it did take a huge leap to commit to this Ford, I am very pleased with the Service and the car so far. Although disappointed that the UK version is minus Daylight Running Lights. From that point of view the car seems dated without them.
