What MPG does your DURATEC Ti-VCT get on the HIGHWAY ONLY ?
Looking for Highway #s only and only for this specific engine please.
Please give the following info.....
- Year car
- Tranny type (Auto or Manual)
- Avg Speed
- Driving conditions (hills, flat land, varied)
- Any mods that may effect fuel economy.
These numbers would be averages for flat, no wind conditions with 87 octane E10. I would like to try 60MPH, but I just can't force myself to drive that slow on the freeway! I would expect over 40MPG at that speed.
Mods are in sig.
Note: You probably would have got a better response to this thread if it weren't in the performance section.
MTX 75 SE Sport
Newmission esque intake (K&N)
New stock motorcraft plugs (30k mile replacement)
55mph - 44mpg

2012 SEL sedan

Avg MPG: 35

This is done with normal everyday driving conditions and weather. Has been constant with either A/C or heat on. this also includes occasional heavy acceleration to get up to speed entering expressway. my lowest was 33 mpg(only 1 tank at that) and highest was 36.4. usually around the 34.8 range.
Performance is not only modifications. It's overall engine performance to include fuel economy.
My question is for this specific engine series (2012+ 2.0L) only.
Not overall Focuses with other engines.
70 mph CC
Varied, NC to AL (only there and back once, minimal highway otherwise)
Handling Package, 41 psi nitrogen, K&N drop-in, snorkel delete, V-Power 93 Octane only, 2 adults and 2 kids under 7 (plus gear), Eibach Pro-kit springs,
I have some data for ya, but it pretty much mimicks what others have posted.
'12 SE hatch
5spd manual trans (this thing really needs a 6spd!)
4,500mi total odometer
factory stock (except a Purdue sticker on the back window)
87 (cheapstuff) fuel
I have a 34mile commute (one way) to work each day. In the mornings with little to no traffic all but 3 of those miles are on the interstate with the cruise set at 65 (10 over [shhh] ) On the way home it's the same, with the exception of about 3 miles of stop and go interstate through downtown. Fuel mileage is consistently in the mid 32mpg range for that scenario
Road trip from Louisville to Evansville, IN. Myself, Wife, and son with all gear in the hatch, cruise set at 75mph. Car made the trip on one tank, but the mileage was only about 34mpg.
Road trip to Cape Girardeau, MO from Louisville. Same load as Evansville. Cruise set on 75mph both directions. One tank each way essentially. 34.5mpg there, almost 37 on the way home. I suspect no A/C and a tailwind helped on the way home. A/c on, and 15-20mph steady cross/head wind on the way there.
Terrain in most all cases was "somewhat hilly". It's not flat as a pancake, but it's not climbing any mountains either.
2012 SE Hatch
70mph flat terrain on cruise
90 degree heat, AC on
How do you guys get such low mileage? I drive from my home to class pretty regularly going around 65 mph and I typically get between 42-44, and that's with some city driving before getting to the highway. Maybe 5-10 miles worth.
