2013 Fuel Economy
I just did my first fill up after buying my 2013 Focus. Well First fill up I paid for. The dealer went with me to the gas station right after buying it and filled it up for me. Now that it has had 2 fill ups, I was able to calculate my fuel usage. I got 23.7 mpg out of it. That was with 95% city driving. My gauge cluster shows 24.4 mpg. I did put about 100 miles on a partial tank of gas in the 4 days of driving I did in it before signing the papers to buy it. Right now the car has 400 miles on it. Is that MPG about right? I know I've heard the car gets better gas mileage after it breaks in but I don't know if that's true or not as this is my first brand new vehicle. Also I did do some fast take offs and all with it one day which I know hurts the fuel economy a little. It has the automatic transmission in it.
