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 have some data for ya, but it pretty much mimicks what others have posted.

'12 SE hatch
5spd manual trans (this thing really needs a 6spd!)
4,500mi total odometer
factory stock (except a Purdue sticker on the back window)
87 (cheapstuff) fuel

I have a 34mile commute (one way) to work each day. In the mornings with little to no traffic all but 3 of those miles are on the interstate with the cruise set at 65 (10 over ) On the way home it's the same, with the exception of about 3 miles of stop and go interstate through downtown. Fuel mileage is consistently in the mid 32mpg range for that scenario

Road trip from Louisville to Evansville, IN. Myself, Wife, and son with all gear in the hatch, cruise set at 75mph. Car made the trip on one tank, but the mileage was only about 34mpg.

Road trip to Cape Girardeau, MO from Louisville. Same load as Evansville. Cruise set on 75mph both directions. One tank each way essentially. 34.5mpg there, almost 37 on the way home. I suspect no A/C and a tailwind helped on the way home. A/c on, and 15-20mph steady cross/head wind on the way there.

Terrain in most all cases was "somewhat hilly". It's not flat as a pancake, but it's not climbing any mountains either.

How do you guys get such low mileage? I drive from my home to class pretty regularly going around 65 mph and I typically get between 42-44, and that's with some city driving before getting to the highway. Maybe 5-10 miles worth.
