Ford Focus Kona

Just bought a 2000 Ford Focus Kona Edition for a commuter car. Looking to maximize my gas mileage. It is an automatic with cruise control.....other than the standard driving techniques are there any mods that I can look into to increase the mileage. So for I have been avg about 30 miles to the gallon. I drive 90 miles a day. All Highway.....

Don't worry about it. Nice car for a commuter. Try a drop in K&N air filter. I picked up around 1-3 more MPG with it.

No Problem, I never thought I would by one in a million years, next thing you know, I sit it, take for a test drive and bam, bought it. With it was a 5 speed but since I am using it on the highway figured it didn't matter. Good luck
