Only filled my 01' wagon about 5 times so far.

Tank 1:
90% city driving: 23mpg

Tank 2:
70% city driving: 22mpg

Replaced fuel filter & spark plugs as well as plugging 2 leaky tires so I could inflate them to 34psi

Tank 3:
90% highway driving: 31mpg

Tank 4:
100% highway driving: 33.7mpg

Tank 5:
50% city/highway: 25.8mpg

I'm not impressed or disappointed with the mpg's I'm getting. 25 is what I expected from a crappy Zetec + heavier wagon anyways.

I'm positive my sputtering fuel pump is decreasing my mpg by 1-2..gonna take it to the ford dealer soon to get that addressed. Plus I know my alignment is off in the rear which could be affecting economy a bit. I should be able to bump the econ to 27 average if I work at it, but for now I don't feel like spending the money.
