About 2600 to 2700 rpm with the speedometer reading 70 mph. Our speedometers read high though. 70 is actually about 65 to 66 mph.

As with all such devices it's an "Indicator" not an accurate gauge; same as a traditional analogue fuel gauge. With 20 miles to empty displayed an ascent or descent of a long steep hill could put you into an apparent run-out situation, even though there's maybe half a gallon still in the tank.
Half a gallon ! Come on guys, get sensible. Use the technology for it's intended purpose - an early warning device - not an absolute measuring device. If it annoys you, turn it off, (presumably you can on a Fiesta ? You certainly can on my Volvo).

Wow that's a big difference. My 5 speed manual is at 3000 at the speedometer's 70MPH. I am getting 38 MPG this tank so I bet the auto trans can get in the 40s

Or how about fill up with 50 miles left in the tank. I would be a nervous wreck if I took it down to 20 miles left.

You can find them cheaper. Google this (in quotations)

Did you recently purchase a compact or subcompact at least in part because it had very good fuel efficiency as gas prices continue to climb? A reporter is interested in speaking with you. Please send a brief description of your experience and contact information to predmunds.com by Wednesday, February 29, 2012.

#639 of 650 Intelligent Access Key
Oct 08, 2013 (1:20 am)
I have a 2013 Fiesta Titanium with an Intelligent Access Key. The Fiesta Quick Reference guide (on page 10 under the heading "Intelligent Access Key") says "To unlock the driver's door, pull the front exterior door handle." I pull the door handle and the door doesn't open. If I push the sensor button on the handle ALL the doors unlock. (I read the entire manual also. Unlocking the doors is references in two places in the Owner's Manual.) I've talked to the dealer, I've talked to the Customer Service representative at Ford. They both say that my car is working correctly and that I have to touch the sensor to unlock the door. Is the guide wrong? It would be very convenient to be able to pull on the handle to open the door without trying to find the very tiny sensor in the dark. I'd love to hear from anyone else that has this model to see if they have the same problem that I have with the door.
