Posted via FF Mobile For such low mileage, seems pretty good to me. You dont have to but a suggestion would to change your oil at 1000 miles to clean away any gunk that built up frok engine break in.

I am happy as well. I owned a 2007 ford focus before and I know I made the right choice.

its not dead on but it's close, there is not a more accutate way to get an instant MPG rating. I didn't say "average" mpg I was saying that was what I was getting for that 15 mile stretch.
BTW do you really need a web site to teach you how to divide miles driven by gallons used? just messin with you
