Hi guys, 


I've got a Fiesta ST2 at the minute, still really enjoying it but it's looking like I may need to change for a diesel of some sort soon as I'll be having a longer commute to work once I get my own place, mainly on A roads and possibly Motorways too. 


I'm planning on buying the car through Hire Purchase and doing a few tasteful mods to it so it won't stay looking standard.


I'm just wondering what peoples thoughts are MPG wise for the MK6 and MK7, don't particularly care about how much power it does or doesn't have but just maximum real world MPG :D 


Any help is great :)

Apologies for resurrecting an old thread here.


I have a MK7 1.6 SE. I can get up to 77mpg, however it really has no power especially when at higher speeds on the motorway. I wish I had gone for the 2.0 and a 6 speed, you'd find it easier on the motorway to overtake. 


That said, I had a 2.0 GT TDi MK5 and could get up to 75mpg in that, 60 on the motorway. Suppose it depends on how you drive it.

There isn't usually much difference between the 1.6 and 2.0 TDI for real world economy, since the latter doesn't have to work as hard.
