Nope, SFE was Super Fuel Economy according to ford, but its basically just an SE with steel wheels, special hub caps, low rolling resistance tires, rear disk brakes to reduce brake system drag from the drums, and a small decklid spoiler. All of which allegedly amounts to a 2 mpg increase in rated highway fuel economy.
The SFE package is an SE, it is not technically its own model despite wearing the SFE badge instead of the SE one.
