Hey Foci Fans,
My Full Size Bronco sits while gas is $2.23 here in Vegas... I got my '01 Focus ZX3 with 10K on it for five grand. to cut down on the gas bill. Bronco = $60.00 to fill ZX3 = $22.00! How much do you guys get per gallon in town and on the highway?
I was suprised how much I dig this little rig.

Welcome to FF! the mileage ranges from 25-35 depending on how you drive.

I guess it does matter how you drive... To be honest, I drive it like a rental car! Jackrabbit starts, between 80-90 on the highway..... This car is so different than my Bronco. Quick around corners, five speed, zipps in and out of traffic. This thing offers quite the viceral ride. I guess this would affect my mileage a bit aye?

I have an 04 ZX3 2.3L 5 speed. I live in South Florida and took a 3 1/2 hour drive to Key West this past weekend. It was the 4th fillup and I was suprised that I got 35.56mpg on that trip... and yes, I did check my math.
The 1st hour is all highway at 70/75mph. The rest is like 45-55mph. The more I drive this car, the better I like it. (I traded an 01 Dodge Dakota 4.7L that got 12-14mpg - all the time)
Oh yea, that was WITH my A/C on the entire time.
