    Vehicle : Focus

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 1.6 TDCI

    Year : 62

    Mileage : 9K

    Default Fuel Readings. Computer v Actual

    Just filled up with my usual Shell diesel extra. Covered 564 miles from full and to refill took 50.55 lts. (11.13 gall). Computer said i used 11.4 gall.

    Works out actual at 50.67 mpg Computer says 49.2 mpg.

    Miles covered was 80 mls motorway and the rest A roads to and from work.

    In all very pleased with my car, its now at 80k but still returning excellent fuel economy as it always has done.

    What are other oil burners getting to the gallon over a tank full.

    Usually get 550 - 600 miles out of my 120 diesel. However when driven like a ___ [insert slow ass driver here!] the fuel comp can show this (this was taken when parked at home, it had crept up to 784miles range!)



    I only had a 1/4 tank before setting off to work one morning this week. I knew I could do the 60 miles round trip, but only if my right foot was as light as a feather! As range is calculated from the previous few miles of driving, after filling up on the way home it was showing the figure above. Now that I have the fuel in the car, my right foot has been noticabley heavier, so range has dropped back the the 'normal' level

    The trip comp I find is usually fairly accurate to my manual calculations, over 30,000miles I have averaged 47.6mpg, this has included 2 random EML lights which lowered the mpg by a noticeable amount.

    With careful driving, and on decent runs it has been up to 50+mpg
