New MPG estimates

A new report came out saying that the MPG on peoples cars are actually alot lot lot lower. The MPG on the stickers are not true. Here is a little break down.

New MPG estimates below
2001 Focus automatic--- 22 city/29 highway, 24 combined
2001 focus manual------ 25 city/32 highway, 28 combined

2004 focus automatic---21 city/28 highway, 24 combined
2004 focus manual------22 city/30 highway, 25 combined

2007 focus automatic---23 city/31 highway, 26 combined
2007 focus manual------24 city/33 highway, 28 combined

This is just to show some of the actuals for these models. Sticker MPG for all of these models were 4-6 MPG more. Don't feel bad if your MPG is less than sticker. The new MPG's are what you should go off of. If have an 04 automatic and I do get the new MPG calculations.

I have a 2000 Focus, manual trans, and I regularly get 30-35 in the city, and sometimes close to 40 on the highway...

lol, now this makes me wonder if going with the new exhaust will improve the MPG. By the way, on my last post I forgot to mention that I drove up there agressively(not by the speed limit)
