anyways, its a zetec zx5, with about 75k. When i looked at the focus online id always seen the early models advertised as like 28-30city, 32-34 highway. So far ive yet to even acheive 28 on the highway..... When in town i like to be a little heavy on the right foot, but on long trips i tend to set the cruise and keep my foot off the pedals.
You should be getting better mileage than 28 on the highway (unless if your car is full of bricks or the drive was mostly uphill!). Since you've addressed a lot or all of the "tune up" stuff I honestly don't know what to tell ya... Maybe chat with other Zetec owners about it, I know the Duratec a lot more than the Zetec.
