just acquired my 2008 1.6 zetec.
Traded in my much loved c class merc for this grandads wagon!
Quite pleased so far but desperate that on the first 200 miles of town driving I have averaged just 25 mpg !Can this be correct ??
Hi & welcome[img]smileys/smiley31.gif[/img],I think 25mpg is probably about right for the 1.6 as it is the least powerful of the engines available & the car is heavier than a focus/golf.On a run you`ll get better.MM
Hi Philsas , i have the 1.8 petrol which on short town trips gives a heady 23/24 mpg , i bought the car expecting at least the 29 mpg that Fords give for urban driving, must be one of the worst mpg to engine size around, I owned a 2 litre petrolmk3 mondeo before and that was giving 27/28 mpg for the same urban use!!
