Is it maybe part of the "beak in" when the car goes through it's first few hundred miles, it uses a little oil???
Hey sirhawkeye,

As sailor said, that's normal operating range, and nothing to be concerned about. It doesn't hurt to keep an eye on it, though.

Like I said in the previous post, I no longer feel the car shake or shudder while on idle and I'm happy about that...I am now confident that my car is running like it should. Learning more about the car and other owners helped me realize that. I am very happy with my new purchase.
Hi Guimpy!

I'm pleased to hear of the confidence in your Focus! Thanks for the update!
