I saw a long term fleet car report that said it was unlikely for anyone to ever get the Ford quoted figures out of the 2L TDCI in any vehicle.

It was what made us go for the 1.6 and the insurance group and the lower VED tham our previous 1.8 petro; focus

I have a 2.0 TDCI and it did not free up until about 15k on the clock when the mpg gets better.

It has 33k on it now, 05 reg and around town and school run averages 26 to 28mpg. On a run if I drive i'll get between 40 and 60mpg dep on speed and if i have bikes or roof box on the car.

With the roof box in France at 85mph get about 35mpg over 600 miles.

Hope it helps

I have moved to spain and just purchased a 1.8 TDCI no 1.6 100+ hp unit on sale here.
i have worked for Ford and driven Ford cars all my working life. All new diesel are crap on fuel, needs 10k to free up. I am getting 42, m.p.g from my new C Max at this time so not to bad.
