I'd say I'm a rather sedate driver these days and rarely give it the full beans. According to the car, I'm averaging 44mpg on my '09 plate Mk8.

Does this match yours?

Currently 53 but it's nearly all extra-urban on this tank so far, but it's usually 50+. Before I changed my fuel filter I was getting 40-44, it was aftermarket with rust on it, guessing it'd been there a while.

Wow... changing the fuel filter made that much difference ?! I've got one here that I've been meaning to fit for a year! I might get on that this weekend.

I tend to get between 50 and 60mpg but the car is mainly used on longer runs (100 to 150 miles at a time).

I also have a fuel filter I have never fitted and I don't know when it was last done. May do it this summer. Has anyone ever had the light come on to drain water from the filter housing?

Just got 55mpg from a 1.2 Fiesta over 200 miles sitting between 70-75.

Wonder if the Ford computer lies 😂

It's down to 50 now from shorter trips, but yeah it was a surprising difference, wonder how long it was on there to get rusty 🤦‍♂️

When I had mine I got average of about 44-48 around town. On longer trips I was able to extract 55-58 from it.

Sun was beating down so a few reflections, but the first run since I changed the exhaust manifold. 129 miles on a mixture of motorway, A and B roads resulted in 63.6mpg on the display. Jumped up about 10mpg since changing the manifold and I still need to do the diesel filter.

That’s pretty much sticking to speed limits which I tend to do and with the air con switched on all the way.

Stick cruise on at 70mph generally. I don’t dawdle, but I’m no speed demon either and usually drive to speed limit.

First part of motorway journey was a 60mph limit and it was reading over 70mpg initially. Return journey image attached

It’s a one piece cast manifold from a Honda CRV. The old manifold was cracked. Wasn’t done for any performance or economy gain but shows a cracked manifold does tend to use more fuel.
