The focus does not like the first cold start of the day. First 5 miles of my commute (highway) I see around 27 mpg on the readout. By 10 miles I see 32 and by 20 miles I see 34mpg. By 50 miles and beyond I see 37mpg (assuming little wind). I travel at 75 mph. Big engine for a small car so sucks gas warming up. Fabulous overtaking power is worth a couple of mpg.

My display shows 27.0 MPG, but I use Fuelly and it actually calculated out to 27.5. I've noticed that my display is usually way off. Last time I filled up, it showed 27.3, but Fuelly actually calculated it to be 25.3, so I don't really pay any attention to the screen anymore. I drive about 90% city and I tend to have a heavy foot, so I don't really expect any high numbers.

Here is my current mpg. I was running premium and midgrade for awhile. BUt had been back to regular the last few fill-ups. Driving alot less highway miles and the colder weather have taken its toll.

Pardon my ignorance, but what country/region display is that? And is it the same "mpg" as the yankee mpg?

Totally understandable with the imperial gallon and their smaller displacement engines that the US apparently can't handle.

I've seen numbers like that on mine after a reset, cruising at 50 and then coasting to a stop. I doubt(but I could be wrong) that the calculation is done on imperial gallons. Does anyone actually sell/measure by the imperial gallon any more?
