|n8 dawg||That's a combined average of city and highway. I've been on vacation the last two weeks from work so next week I am going to see what I average under normal driving conditions on the highway. My test before was a lot of coasting and driving like an old fart.|

|n8 dawg||I average around 26-28mpg....But I know I have a lead foot|

|DoubleSh0t||Either I have a lead foot or I have something wrong with my car. The best I've ever gotten was 36 MPG, and only average 30.7. This is over 71 fill ups on Fuelly.|

I have cruise on at 69 on the freeway ('14 DCT, stock everything). Rolling hills and some flat areas, but with one large grade thrown in there (bad on the way up, nice on the way down as long as I don't have to brake). I'm slowly moving back to 38 mpg; took me a while to fix the 1.5 mpg loss that the local dealership service staff dropped me to after driving 13 miles in my car (this was with about 3800 miles on the car when they took it, so it was broken in already).
It's going to be a bit worse now because of rainy weather, but I'm trying to get to 40 mpg!

|morrjr||I have a 2013 SE hatch with DCT and AEM Dryflow drop-in filter (no snorkel delete). The car has 39,000 miles on it: the first 33,000 were put on by the previous owner. The last time I checked highway mileage (about two weeks ago) I got 38.6 MPG running at 65 MPH on cruise control.|

under normal driving conditions and if im not late to where i need to go:
45mph - 40/45mpg
55mph - 38/40mpg
65mph - 35/37mpg
70+mph - 33/35mpg
These vary depending on occupancy, fuel level, which highway I am driving and also if im staying at a nice steady speed. I also have a j2 exhaust, kn drop in with the lid off. I am putting the lid back on tomorrow for a week to see if i notice any increases or decreases in power and mileage. Oh and almost forgot i have a five speed se with the silver split five spoke wheels. I have noticed since the exhaust and drop in it is definitely alot easier to keep my mph steady.

After reading through this thread I am not sure why my MPG is so much lower than everyone elses. I traded in an 08 focus for my 12 and under the same driving conditions I could get 41 mpg in the 08 (after a k&n drop in filter, before 38mpg). Yesterday I tracked my drive to work (45 miles highway) not including the city driving and I got 36.6 mpg. This was really feathering the gas too which I also did in my 08.
The only thing I have added is a AEM replacement filter with the snorkel delete. I also left the airbox lid off and am going to test again with the lid on to see if there are any differences in MPG. This is a 5spd manual and I really wish Ford had opted for a 6th gear just for highway speeds to increase the MPG, not to change the gear ratio's as I think the 5spd is geared pretty nicely.
My question is how are other 5spd owners getting over 40mpg when in 5th gear we are sitting at roughly 3k RPM's at highway speeds. I can see the auto's getting this due to the 6th gear.
