I have been lusting after a focus for at least 5 years and just bought a 2006 zx3 manual transmission I love it. What I'm after is knowledge to make this baby last 20 years too. How do I improve the mpg? (getting 23mpg in town) Any and all suggestions appreciated. I made the turd last by changing oil and fixing stuff before it broke (She got 24mpg in town when she passed) The only thing I regret is not buying a ride with a full instrument panel. I miss a tach. My other car is a 1958 Triumph TR3a. My first car was a MG midget. I rebuilt the engine with my own two hands so I understand what's going on.

This car has some real fire in it!! Zip!
