Fuel Mileage

Hi, I am new to this forum. I have a 2004 Ford Focus ZX5. My gas mileage is really bad. I usually get no more than 420kms per 45L tank. Any ideas on what I can try to get better mileage> Had the plugs changed today and had fuel injector cleaner put in.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hey the name's Jake. Just bought a 2001 LX Focus With the dreaded SPI Motor. I know I know- Swap it out. Well I am currently getting all of the parts togetherfor a Turbo Zetec build. I actually had two Zetecs and an Auto tranny given to me recently so that knocks that part out. I have to hold out until after the wedding before I can start really throwing monies at it, so for now I have just been doing a little bit here and there. Go check out some of my threads and you will be able to see what I have done so far.

Thanks for the awesome forum. I have learned so much already and am continually doing so. It's nice to be able to throw a question out there and get an answer back so quickly from everyone on here.

Drove home my new 2012 Focus today!

After a few days of pining over this car on the internet, I bought myself a Tuxedo Black Focus Titanium today. It is my first new car and kind of a lot money for me, but I am excited to begin this new relationship and hope it is a long and happy one!

Love this forum btw, lots of great posts here by many knowledgeable, helpful people. I will probably have questions for all of you!

Hello, everybody! I finally found a nice-enough ZX3 that I could afford, with all the qualities I want. My first car was a Fiero, so I got really comfortable having an active community/forum to back me up (www.fiero.nl). Needless to say, I'm really happy that his forum of fanatics exists!

So new its not even my car.

Hey everyone. Just bought my wife a 2012 HB, and the first thing she told me to do was " Do what you do!" Now who doesnt like to hear that? LOL. So I thought I would come to the experts, and get answers. I have about 10 mins at a time to spend in forums, so it is really hard for me to spend time searching. Just need links to Body stuff, wheel suggestions ( our offset is +50!?!?), and ECU upgrades ( flash, standalones, whatever) intakes, and any other suggestions. Thank you in advance.
