Yee Haa! Avg 34-MPG

My Focus is 2-mths old, 2,400 miles on it. I drive 15 miles of city and 20 miles of hwy, just got 34-mpg, next week I see if I can get 35 or 36. Of course I am pissing people off left and right by driving 55-mph in a 65 zone and accelerating slowly, but with gas at $3.00 a gallon who cares!

i'm driving somewhat conservative on my 49 mile commute to work, it is all interstate though and i am getting about 370 miles out of the tank. Haven't taken an average for MPG but one thing i do know is i am not paying for the gas, company does, i am a consultant and i have to drive to a client site everyday.

No, I believe we are talking about the 99 Cobra (Green if you care) that I got to drive around in lastnight.
