We have owned our 2012 Ford Fiesta for 2000 miles and love it.
On a trip to Fresno,CA from Bakersfield we received 41 mpg driving 70+ miles per hour.
I thought that was great but I knew that I could improve.
From Quartside, AZ to Bakersfield I received 48 mpg.
I was averaging 65 mph and using coasting techniques in the mountains.
I do not have a cruise control so my miles per hour sometimes crept upwards.
My last trip from Santa Barbara I got 49 mpg.
I know I can get 50 mpg.
These are hybrid numbers; amazing.
P.S. this a 4-door sedan with a 5-speed transmission. Thanks Ford
