Do you have evidence other than their verbal claims to get 42-44 mpg at 70 mph?

I can see 42+ at a steady state 65 mph easily, but that extra 5 miles per hour adds a lot more to the aerodynamic drag forces and speeds the engine up from 2400 rpm at 65 to at or over 2600 rpm at 70 mph.

Again if you were so satisfied with the Fiesta why trade it in after only a year or so for the Focus?
