I also bought the Focus so I didn't have to burn mid grade or premium gas. My previous car (2002 Jetta) ran sluggish if it burned regular.
I had a fuels class in school that opened my eyes... I wrote a little thread about gas quality and linked to the Top Tier website: bookmark their list in your phone or something, because that list changes frequently!
