My average is anywhere from 21 to 24L/100.
It has 7900km on it now so it is fairly run in. The fuel runs are just normal driving, bit of highway, bit of city (mostly peak hour).
Please note, I have 7900 km on a car that is 6 and a bit weeks old.
If you are getting getting 24l/100 then maybe:
A) you are playing 2f2f at the lights a lot
B) have a brick stuck ON TOP of the go pedal
C) haven't read the section in the owners manual that describes the operation of the shiny silver lever between the front seats.
Remember the yellow sticker on windshield when you got the car. It said 13l/100km. The one on a GTS says 17l/100km. I don't think Ford could put a 13 sticker on a 21 car.
Last saturday I drove from Hervey Bay to Benaraby Raceway (280km), Spent the afternoon playing on the strip, drove home on a tank + 20l and I had about 120km left in it by the computer when I got home.
