MPG poll

I thought out of curiousity I'd start a poll to see what kind of mpg everyone is getting. If you are getting around 30+ mpg could you please reply with the things you did or methods used to increase your mpg. I've filled up 3 times so far. The mpg for the tank of gas from the dealership is not accurate as I don't know for sure if the trip miles were on the tank.

Rounded to the nearest 10th.
Fill up---MPG
0---------????
1---------24.4
2---------25.7
3---------Still driving on this tank.

I up shifted a little bit later on fill up #2 (between about 2750 and 3000 rpms vs around 2250 give or take 200 rpms.

On only my 4th tank (car has just under 800 miles currently) and so far,I'm seeing 24-25mpg on my 22 mile/day round trip driving.Both mods in my sig have been installed.I imagine I'll average closer to 28-30 if I do just freeway driving.

With a ATX,that's about as good as I'll get I believe...

SCT 93 octane ZED0 tune from FocusSport & K&N Drop-in. Last 1800 miles since tune ave. 34 MPG. Mostly commuting to and from work. Shifting at 2000 to 2500 and only thrashing really deserving people.... although it seems like I need to spank at least a couple per tank.

Long distance highway would probably be a bit better without all the cold-starts on my daily drive.

Oh, keeping the tires 35/32 and the alignment toed out as far as possible. I think the stock settings are too conservative and cost mileage.

i usually get around 30 mpg, mostly city driving, with my ATX, and my mods are in my profile. i drive pretty hard about 30% of the time, so i get pretty good mileage.

2005 Focus. 2 L. with factory "permanent" air filter. (like K & N type). 5 speed manual and no aftermarket mods. Currently have 216,000 miles and never replaced a clutch! WOW. Anyway, I get 32 MPG in "city" driving but still concerned. When car was new I got 39.6 MPG pure highway. (62 MPH, no A/C on cruise control). BUT, I've lost that highway MPG and worried the air filter is the culprit. Unsure "how" to read the air restriction gauge. Thoughts welcome

I have an SVT and am averaging close to 27 MPG's since I've purchased it brand new. I drive normal, a few quick starts per tank, but usually taking off normally and shifting at 3k.

The lowest I've seen was low-mid 23 MPG's, but that's when I have a really heavy foot. The highest I've seen was mid 31 MPG's.

I have an intake and throttle body for mods, but it really hasn't had any effect on my MPG's. I have a tune, but I'm still on the first tank. I might have picked up a MPG, but it's too early to tell on one tank.

I average about 28-29 on the street, and about 10 on the track.
