I have a question. I just got my SEL Hatch 5-spd manual on Monday.

I am coming from a 2002 2.2 Cavalier 5-spd manual

I find that the Focus runs at a higher RPM than my cavalier.

on the highway going about 115km/h my cavalier would be at 2500-2700 rpm

the focus is at 3000.

anyone else notice this too? right now according to the computer my average fuel economy is 8.3l/100km which is about 28mpg. I drive id say 90% highway.

so i feel that this is a bit low. I know it still has a lot to go for brake in as i only have 250km on it.

main concern was the high RPM's and just want to see what others are running at.
