What are you going to do with the '13? Isn't there a bigger drop in value once you roll over from 99k to 100k?

I'm only at 33k right now, but I think when I hit around 80-90k, I might start to look to trade in/sell my '14.

strtrkstooge 11,003. just turned 11K today on my 2014 purchased new 03/11/15. My Ford Login has always had me averaging 22 miles per day. The math for 11,001 miles for 417 days is just over 26.38 miles per day. Still much better than my 2011 focus on which I averaged 400/wk just for work.

JoshuaCurrie Mine had a slow coolant leak but found it and fixed it. I found mine was coming from the bigger hose at the bottom of the reservoir. The spring clamp was not working right so I replaced it with a screw style hose clamp and my slow leak went away.

I'm up to 162,000 miles now and this problem hasn't gotten any worse for me I've just kept on going.

So far I've had the clutches replaced and my coolant level slowly lowers. Only other complaints are too many rock chips in paint, a few rattles, and sometimes the trunk won't open with fob or button on trunk. Oh and almost a $13,000 depreciation after 60,000 miles and 1.5 years. Otherwise it's been great. Hwy mpg seems to get better over time I get 38 mpg hwy easy. Hope to keep it past 200k miles.

How many miles on yours?

Like suss said, based on your gas millage and adjust accordingly as you drive. I think the highest mine has read is about 417 miles when I filled mine up getting about 35mpg.

Better average fuel economy on their car's computer times the remaining quantity of the 12.4 gallon fuel tank = more miles estimated DTE remaining.

Assuming both cars were 100% full at the time:
346/12.4=27.9 mpg
376/12.4=30.32 mpg

I've seen DTEs over 400 miles before which is only an estimated average of 32 mpg, at the 37 mpg highway rating and a full tank the DTE can be as high as 458 or more miles. Doesn't mean you can go that far as it is an average based on your past driving style and running the car out of fuel is a bad idea.

There is only one fuel tank on the non RS Foci in North America the 12.4 gallon tank.
