Seems I'm getting rubbish MPG with my MK7 115 2.4 with 26mpg!! That's driving at 60mph with little load :( 60mph is 2500rpm I think and 70mph is 3000rpm

Hope it's allowed, I used the trip computer. Usage is mixed, Transit is almost full long trip, Connect/Tourneo mostly city.
- Transit Connect LWB 1.6L - ~36mpg.
- Tourneo Connect 1.5L 7 seater - ~29mpg.
- Transit LWB / 2H - ~33mpg

Moral of the story: don't believe official figures.
Do I care? Hell no. I want a V6 in all my Fords, and I would be fine with 20mpg even. (sue me?)
I wonder if the Duratorq engines can be tuned at all, would be great if they could be pushed a bit more. I mean they break anyhow, why not get a bit more juice out of them. But yeah, finding a proper tuner in Hungary might be a difficult task.

Hi, i have a 2010 swb low roof econetic, 2.2 fwd 6sp manual.
Just did my 1st full tank and got 32mpg (or 790k's to 69lt), mainaly urban driving with air con on and loaded to around 200-250kg,
However, i think my front tyres are the wrong size as it says in the owner manual fwd should have 195 75r16 on the front wheels, mine has 215 75r16 front and rear. Speedo says I'm doing around 120 but actual speed is 110 (kph) and cruising at top sp in 6th seems hard on the engine.
I also found that the air pipe feeding the air box was not connected to the air box, so after i fit the kn panel filter, a good service I'm hoping to get better mpg

Martyn, Vantuner can do a postal ECU remap on most transits?

Think I will need to arrange a van tuner session. feels like I'm doing gallons to the mile right now. mainly Urban miles 17 to 20 per trip and half a tank lasts around 180 miles.
