I was lucky enough to get 21% off sticker. There's a recent poster on another Focus forum who claims to have recently gotten an SFE that stickered for just over $20 for $13,995, or over 30% off!

Perhaps the ethanol effects the engine differently than it does in the Prius. Who knows?
Could also be that the C-Maxes haven't been out as long as the Prius so the initial 2-3 tank break in could be skewing the overall MPG numbers down "artificially." Let's see where all the averages are in say 6 months.
