In Michigan I could take the Jeep out and play many places near my house. Now that I am in metro ATL there are not many places close by to use the Jeep off-road and I was only getting around 12MPG in traffic here.

The Jeep also had 177K miles on it vs the 106K on the Focus.
Mine was an 04 but stock with 55K. It to was my DD and I was getting only 14MPG. The gas was killing me when I bought my house. So I traded it for the Focus. I still miss it very much,and the transition was difficult for a long time.
Good luck with the your Focus!
