smurf91 I don't get why I'm getting way better mpg than most are reporting. It isn't a fluke. I have kept track of it over the last five fill ups. Only thing I do is lucas every fill up and marvel mistery oil in the motor. I keep the highway speed to 65mph and keep the rpms below 3000 as much as possible.

..I'm lying. The best I've seen is 28.

smurf91 Well after driving the car around I'm getting 31.2 mpg in town and 49.6 highway. The worst I got so far was 29.2 and that was running the snot out of it! I must say I love this car!

mileage

I own two 2001 ZX3's with the Ztec engines. Bought the first one for my son when he was looking for a sporty looking but, economical first car. I was so impressed with this little car, I looked for another one for myself. Both are pretty consistent at 27MPG local and 35-36MPG on the highway. One has 109,000 miles the other has 65,000. Love this little car

xxMichaelAnthony Didn't even try to do it either and it was with my old motor that had a blow head gasket and 200k+ miles on it.

I do 28 in my stock ZETEC. About 120k on the motor, 257k on the rest. Sticker was 30 under EPAs "perfect" driving conditions so 28 is well within where it should be.

Fuelly is a much beer gauge of average mpg for any car. Based on over 600,000 miles, the 2001 Focus has an average of 28.3, so you are actually doing pretty well with your mpg's
