2012
MTX-75
70mph ~36MPG
65mph ~38MPG

These numbers would be averages for flat, no wind conditions with 87 octane E10. I would like to try 60MPH, but I just can't force myself to drive that slow on the freeway! I would expect over 40MPG at that speed.

Mods are in sig.

Note: You probably would have got a better response to this thread if it weren't in the performance section.

2012 SEL sedan
Auto
avg spd: 75 87 octane
Avg MPG: 35
Terrain: varied, mostly flat with occasional up and down grade.
Mods: only real mod is K&N drop in

This is done with normal everyday driving conditions and weather. Has been constant with either A/C or heat on. this also includes occasional heavy acceleration to get up to speed entering expressway. my lowest was 33 mpg(only 1 tank at that) and highest was 36.4. usually around the 34.8 range.

Thank you for your input.

Performance is not only modifications. It's overall engine performance to include fuel economy.

My question is for this specific engine series (2012+ 2.0L) only.

Not overall Focuses with other engines.

I understand that. Note that I didn't say you posted in the wrong place--my comment was meant simply as a suggestion. I mentioned it because there is more traffic in the MkIII forum, and that's typically where MPG discussions take place, so you would likely receive more response there. In the MkIII forum, the only possibility of answers not pertaining to the Duratec 2.0 Ti-VCT engine would be replies from owners from outside North America. Well that, of course, and the possibility of a response from someone in the wrong section altogether. But, that could happen here.

^^^This, though be warned that if you have it moved there that the thread will ultimately go down the tubes and/or be full of more bickering/arguing than you'll really care to deal with...

I'm not sure why your saying there's a huge difference between 65 and 70. As you state your 65 mph number, and so does the post directly under yours. They're both lower than mine, that's why I was questioning why yours is lower.

As far as what the OP asked
2012 SE 5DR Sport Package
DCT
Mostly flat driving as I live in the Chicago area.
Car has about 3,000 miles on it now, but it's been the same ever since I got the car.
I use 87 gas.

No need to be stand offish.

But, the city mileage is where this car really suffers IMO.

I didn't say there was a huge difference.

There's part of your answer--that will make a 2 MPG difference compared to the MTX-75. Another factor is that, in the city, you are probably driving some miles in the "sweet spot" for MPG--at lower speeds around 40-50MPH. Everyone's "mixed" driving is different. That's probably why the OP asked for highway MPG only--to eliminate the highly variable characteristics of city/mixed driving. If everyone provided their mixed MPG as you have, we wouldn't have data that can be directly compared.
