well i wouldnt take the OP's findings too seriously... its only based on 100miles of highway driving, hardly an average. He needs to compute his average mpg over several tanks worth of gas. I've seen pics of the '12's getting 60+mpg, they may be coasting down a hill in neutral but they still got that mpg, however brief it happened to be lol


Fuelly is a much beer gauge of average mpg for any car. Based on over 600,000 miles, the 2001 Focus has an average of 28.3, so you are actually doing pretty well with your mpg's
