Now like I said this is just a 15 mile stretch we drive and what I have averaged. Have not had it down interstate or highway since I changed a few things. Before I changed the filter and octane I was getting around 30 to 35. I had a lot of variance in it. Now I am between 41 to 43 on a consistent basis.

2014 SE
automatic
aFe filter and running premium
What have you changed if you don't mind telling?

All I have done is a drop in filter from aFepower with the lid on and started running 93 octane.

I will also add the throttle response went from meh to great. It is like a whole new vehicle. Even my wife noticed it. When she notices something it must stand out.

I had a K&N filter in my last focus and it added about 3 mpg average. I will probably get another K&N. I have a K&N in my truck and I have the K&N reconditioning kit.

I am going to the Casey's in town too fill up with premium next fillup.

Thanks for the tip!

ps. I will wait to see if my wife notices any difference???

If I painted mine a different color she would probably notice it when I told her. That is why I was so surprised she noticed something about the car "running a lot better".

Although a few weeks ago she did say "the truck seems to have a stiffer ride", which was also surprising seeing as high I adjusted the struts a little. Maybe she is catching on and learning after 25 years.
