Fiesta Diesel MPG

Hi everyone,

I'm new to this site but thought I'd join as I'd like some advice about buying a Fiesta.

I currently own a petrol car but long driving distances has made me decide to buy a diesel as i currently get an average of 32.4mpg. I quite like the look of the mark IV but from experience quoted mpg figures aren't too reliable. Parkers quotes the fiesta 1.8td e-diesel returning 62mpg. Is this realistic?

Could anyone tell me what I could expect from a mixture of town and rural driving?

Thanks for any help.

Re: Fiesta Diesel MPG

This isn't exactly what you're looking for but thought I might as well add something...

I drive a 2003 (Mark 4?) 1.4 TDCi Fiesta (claimed combined MPG 62.8 I believe) and saw 61.8 out of my last tank, which was around 75% motorway mileage at 65-70mph.

My first tank which was a little more mixed came out to 56, plus I was a bit right foot heavy due to it being new (to me).

I've heard the 1.6 TDCi engine in a Fiesta is actually more fuel efficient than the 1.4, but not sure how the 1.8 goes.

Either way, it seems the actual motorway mpg ends up pretty similar to what the claimed combined is... if that makes sense!

Hope that helps a bit...

Re: Fiesta Diesel MPG

the newer style fiestas mk6 eg 2002 onwars wasnt fitted with 1800 d just the 1400 then later the 1600, the 1600 alot more efficent with power to weight ratio etc if your to buy a diesel go with a newish 1600d or even better a differnt model diesel! you could pic up a mondeo zetec for under 6k
