My 2000 focus 5sp with 75K on it got 29.5mpg I traded up to a:
2002 Focus Wagon (Auto) with 62K on it and it is getting 29.8 MPG
I run Mobile 1 synthetic 0W-30 and have new air filter, fuel filter, tires, etc.
I was VERY impressed and very happy that I am getting better than my old focus sedan. A car with this much room that gets 30MPG is pimp. Thanks Ford!
