I'm just getting about 29+ in the city
I accelerate then I let go of the pedal and kinda just pulse on it gently so its like giving it gas every other second but only pushing it down a little teeny bit
but I only do that after it has accelerated to the speed I want to keep it at then I let go of the pedal and just let it coast downhill and to stop lights

On the highway I experimented for the heck of it I got 44.2mpg to go from Warwick, RI to Boston, MA
I drove at 65 and below the whole way about 60-65ish along with the coasting and the pedal thing I mentioned above but when I happen to notice I sped up to 70s I let go and let it coast back to 65ish

I have a 09 Focus Sedan SE Automatic
