Fuel Mileage?

Just curious what kind of city/hwy/mixed driving mileage you guys are getting out of your ST's? I'm wanting to get one, but if I'm spending an extra $100 on fuel over my SES (29-30mpg normally), I'll need to budget accordingly, maybe get the ST2 instead of the ST3 like I'd really like to make up for it.

8mpg sounds about right for a safe tune on a turbo car. Boost eats fuel to survive.

25mpg in the city is actually very good for what these cars weigh. Surprising, actually.

Still wondering about highway averages if anyone has driven a full tank out on a road trip.

One of the major thing's I don't like is the smallest 12.5 gal. tank. Whats up w/ that? Emmisions or cafe standards? at least 2+ gals. would get some range.

help keep the weight down maybe? not enough room in their design for a bigger tank?

When the older design has a 14.5 gal tank. I'd be happy to haul at least a couple gallons around.

Nope, the larger european fuel tank appears like it would fit just fine, they just didn't fit it to the North American models, probably for CAFE, and or the illusionary gain in EPA test mileage from a lighter car (by 6.03 lb/gallon or so x 3.88 more gallons from the european ST's 62 L tank vs the pathetic 12.4 gallon tank shared with the base focus here. The base European Focus has a 55 liter fuel tank for around 14.5 gallons of gasoline
