fofi sports owners may nagpa-20k maintenance checkup dito? pashare naman po kung anu ung mga ginawa and magkano.. thanks
Fiesta Sport first full tank of Caltex Gold, 389.3Km auto filled 34.285L for a total of 11.35 Km/L. Odo at around 450Km light to moderate traffic generally... About 13km one way to work then back home.
I am a very happy FOFI Sport owner for more or less 15 months now and I must say this car is the most fuel efficient vehicle that I've ever owned.
Highest City Driving Fuel Consumption: 13.8KM/L
Highest Highway Driving Fuel Consumption: 21.3KM/L
A full tank of Petron XCS lasts would always lasts me for at least 2 weeks. This would usually my include daily drive from my house in Makati to my office in Ortigas, then my weekend trips to our family house in Laguna. Isama mo na din dyan yung FRI night outs ko and my weekend marathon races sa Fort or MOA.
So yes, Ford didn't lie about how fuel-efficient this car is. For the new owners, it may appear as if the car is another gas guzzler in the first few thousand KMs but eventually it will get better. Just be patient.
As for those who just loves to "hate" our humble little FOFI, eto lang masasabi ko: If you feel your Toyota/Honda/Nissan/Suzuki or whatever your car is, is more fuel efficient; abay sana nga ganun din nga sila ka fuel-efficient para happy tayong lahat. :-)

Not bad, not bad at all. :-)
I just past the 2tKm mark and also switched up to Petron for the last 3 tanks... so far I think Petron is better be it Unleaded or XCS (or maybe just a more honest station :P).
Hard to really quantify for the data driven guys out there but I feel and see the revs go higher on the same style of driving on the Petron Unleaded rather than Caltex Gold or Petron XCS. But still that delivered better FC than Caltex Gold. Maybe using the higher octane stuff doesnt really improve much on the fifo FC, like in our older car. I feel like i have to press more on the throttle to get it up a bridge when using the 95+ fuels than with the 93+ types. But thats my personal feel of it.
Hopefully this XCS fill is the tank that gets me to the 12km/l point as the guesstimator FC guage says im at 7.7L/100Km at half tank. Overall, usually averaging 11+km/L in previous fills or ~390Km before the low fuel warning. I'm also trying something different where im not always checking the real time FC guesstimator while i drive.
For the guys getting double digit FCs in city driving, is this light to moderate weekend driving or moderate to heavy weekday/rush hour driving?
From what I'm reading, 9 km/L seems pretty standard for city driving with the Fiesta, but recently several of you guys are getting double-digit figures. Matipid yun ah, considering na automatic transmission, it's as efficient as a 1.5 Jazz or Mz2, and if 10 km/L is standard for city driving, that's as good as the king of fuel efficiency among subcompacts, the Vios.
Which is why I find it weird na nung una ang daming nagsasabing malakas sa gas yung Fiesta. Parang hindi naman, or matipid kayo lahat magdrive
Having the "real time" fuel consumption meter does make it easier. At the same time just avoid prolonged idle especially with the aircon engaged, like going to the drive through or waiting for someone to buy something at a store. I would just turn off the engine instead.
As mentioned im usually on light to medium traffic. However, not gunning up and down bridges and trying to maintain a constant speed preferably in the 40-60kph is ideal. I have tried driving normally without constantly watching the FC gauge and there is a difference, but I think its trained me already to be more fuel efficient than i used to be because i also changed the way i drive the CRV. Though i have been trying to drive efficiently for several years already. I am able to get 8kpl on a first gen crv AT even before the fiesta so I guess i was doing pretty good.
Paano ba naman, may mga kasama na items like engine flush (P480) at oil treatment (P469) tumaas yung presyo. They used 4 liters of fully synthetic oil by the way.
dapat pag nagppost ng fuel consumption kasama talaga yung mga yun.
you may cover 100km and garnered 13km/L pero ang travel time mo pala was just about an hour, eh aba syempre mababa talaga FC mo niyan.
