Yes I did notice the blind spot and having to lean a bit. But then I find myself leaning towards the middle making use of the arm rest anyway.
I went for the 1L ecoboost. I vary between a 4 mile round trip or an 80 mile round trip for work, so didn't bother with the diesel.
The car was brand new so may take a bit of driving before the average MPG starts to level out but I must admit, it's nowhere near what Ford have advertised.
If I do the 4 mile trip to the train station, it's just normal roads, but the days where I have to actually drive to work and do the 80 mile round trip it's mainly A roads with the odd dual carriage way and a lot of Cornish hills!
Saying that, the boost from the engine makes getting up the hills effortless. Which is why the MPG probably isn't showing as good as I'd have hoped.
You will likely get around 38 MPG (MPG for 1.0 and 1.5 was discussed on another earlier thread), I get slightly less having a 1.5 petrol, around 36 MPG
I packed in diesel after having them for years, as .....
Better away from it now with EU6 emission regs, as most diesels now have adblue, which it tends to eat, and thus costs a lot on running costs, plus some makes of diesels now are having oil dilution/contaminates problems due to EU6 and needs far more oil and filter changes, again extra costs. And then there is the dreaded PDF fliter and burn cycle that has to get rid of the soot, can be a fault area as the car gets older, which I had on my last diesel.
