For your Focus there is no chip that will work any longer , You will need a SCT XCAL3 to properly tune your car

I sell the xcal3 with a full custom tune and free tune updates for 399.00 and 20.00 for shipping , let me know if you have any further questions

There is no magic tune that's going to net you set number increase in mpg. You can see improvements throughout your power band or in drivability. Those things combined with how you drive will effect your overall mpg.

Agree , No 2 Foci will respond the same to any mod , Most my customers say they get better MPG and better over all performance as well as better drivability
