    Default mpg surprise

    went to the petrol station today, filled up to the brim..and the range showed 343 miles which shows i have been driving like a k**b.!
    any ways went to lake side 60mile from me, i had the missus moaning telling me to drive normal, and by the time i got there the range read 744 miles and id done the 60miles ,
    so on that theory do you think if i drove round and round the m25 at 50-70 mph all the way id be able to get the 800 miles out of a tank

    Lol, I think you would be dizzy after driving 800 miles in a circle . I'd be happy with the 343 miles though.

    Vehicle : Focus

    Trim : Titanium

    Engine : 1.6 TDCI

    Year : 62

    Mileage : 9K

    I would say not 800, but maybe 650 - 700. I have 2.2dti sri 53 plate and mine achieves 600 miles to a tank just on A roads back and forth to work. I do drive very careful but my driving is mainly at silly oclock early in the morning.

    For the size of car, they are very economical if driven sensible.
