Whats everyone thinking the average MPG will be on these new eco boost engines?🚘
You measured MPG over 3 years???????? now that is precise.Over 3 years in a Mk3 St I have achieved an average of 31.1 mpg.
So I anticipate that a 2.3 version of the same engine, plus the extra weight and drive going through 4 wheels, will result in slightly lower figures.
How low, who knows
I wish I could takeq the credit for being an uber nerd but I can't :lol:You measured MPG over 3 years???????? now that is precise.
:lol: I use 99 RON fuel in my ST. Average over 6k miles is 31mpg. Ford claim just over 40 on a combined cycle. Even on a long run the most I've had out of it is 36 and that's with 50mph stretches of motorway (almost all of the M1 now). The problem with more modern engines is the gap between claimed and reality gets bigger.I guess if you are in a part of the world where you have access to 99RON fuel or better then with an ECU update MPG should be as good if not better than published figures, like the MK2. I wonder what Mountune will do if Ford offer an upgrade under warranty. Will they have a worldwide map or will there be specific ECU upgrades tailored to each market to cover all qualities of fuel.
