Hi everyone! Glad to know its not my driving keeping the mpg down! Just completed first 3000 miles and have had to work hard to get up to 41mpg. Not sure what you have to do to get the 53 quoted (although with the recent weather I guess you could always float). Still loving the car though, no other issues so far, and as fuel economy is similar to my old car and not one of the main reasons I chose the ES, I am still a happy girl. On to the next 3000 miles
Slightly different as mine is diesel that has also had engine ecu reprogrammed but I have found if I use shell or bp I get about 52 mpg no matter what to from work shops etc or long run no difference, how ever if I use fill up at Tesco or sainsburys I seem to only get about 47 mpg so it appears what I save in cost I lose in mpg, I now use shell most of time as car is also smother when full of shell not Tesco fuel
Just looked at the other cars in the family all Fiesta's. Was a little surprised at the figures a got.
Ecosport 1.0 ecoboost 33.7 mpg.
Fiesta 1.0 ecoboost 35.6 mpg.
Fiesta 1.2 34.5mpg.
Fiesta 1.6 Zetec S. 37mpg.
All doing very similar journeys, and the Zetec S and the 1.2 both got figures in the 40s on long motorway trips where as the ecoboost engines don't seem to change very much.
All said I would still want an ecosport.
Done about 3000 miles now 1 ltr ES average 38mpg so looking at others it fits, take it easy on a run high 40's fast motor way low 40's around town mid 30's not bad for a tuned petrol car that likes to be driven.:nerd:
Haven't driven the car for a while but just looked at the mpg and still only getting 34 mpg but checked the average speed and that's down to just 24 mph so all things considered that's don't think that's to bad really.
