What im saying is that each of those factors will decreas mpg along with perhaps aggressive accelleration and breaking. I still wouldnt expect it to be as low as 24, but 29 to 30 wouldnt be unexpe ted.

I'm not an aggressive driver and Ford Ecomode rated my driving as "advance eco driver" is a testament to that. But still I'm getting 24-26mpg fuel consumption, so I think that there is something fundamentally wrong with my car specifically with the transmission (shift module) and that Ford cant just fix it.

The manual says 32.9 mpg for the urban cycle, but take off say 2 mpg for the auto box, 2 for aircon, say another 2 for cold weather and the fact that published figures are always optomistic.

Tyre pressures and load (eg 3 passengers) can all have a negative effect, so its not hard to see why your figures are so low.

The auto box will keep you in a low gear for longer than neccessary too, but if you think it is faulty, you will need to get it looked at by a specialist.

What sort of mpg are you getting on a run?Edited by: cianpars

BP Ultimate diesel, I have been trying this fuel for 1000 miles, it is 129.9 a Lt against 115.7 Asda which I usually use, as you can see it is doing 68.8 MPG, 2 MPG
better than Asda, when I did the fill to fill caculation it is 70.83, I
do not think it is cheaper, but I rather like the idea of buying the best corn available for my horse.

Just done 1600 miles to Spanish border and back by Motorway at an average speed of 60 mph + and recorded 43.5 mpg.
However returning to Central London congestion the car a 1600 cc auto is doing 25mpg
I don't think the quality of petrol counts. The consumption in Town is poor, out of Town it is quite impressively good. Can't see scope for that to change.

Pretty par for the course in central london I guess. Better to go by horse and cart. Seriously though, the ford 1.6 engine always has been a bit thirsty, but if you take 2mpg off your expected figures for each of the factors i mentioned above, you can easily get down to 25/26 mpg.

My Bmax's ampg before software update was 24mpg, now after software update, I am getting 26mpg.I drive around town. Anyone having this kind of problem?

The ampg I keep reading in forums is around 30-44 and I'm getting 26mpg! I have a 2013 1.6 powershift model.
Hi,

I came across your thread in relation to your experience of the B-Max and its poor fuel consumption.

Unfortunately I am also experiencing something similar and hoping you can offer me some advice and guidance.

May I ask how did you resolve the juddering issue and did you find out what was causing the poor fuel consumption?

Any help would be much appreciated, Many Thanks
Enam
