Bought an 02 Mach ZTS last week... great car except for the TO bearing noise!
27.67 mpg on first tank, 26.53 mpg on second. Combined City/Hiway and not necessarily trying to get good gas mileage.
I am impressed! Years ago I had a 1988 Mercury Tracer (Mazda 323) and I got 30 mpg all the time, while driving it extremely hard. Of course, it didn't have nearly the power of the ZTS and wouldn't go at all with the a/c on.
Old Ford guy...
