Enjoy the car! :)
Thanks, will try that today. I did see a few posts mentioning the initial low mileage scenario, one was on Youtube where the guy was recording a video of his cluster display and the mileage was in the teens but apparently later moved up to the advertised levels. Have some errands today will see how it goes.

Most Iowa gas stations have ethanol in the mid grade only. Which I thought strange, since it is a corn state.
are you using e85? if so, does your focus show this:

No e85, just the 10 percent ethanol. I just put in a half tank of 91 octane non-ethanol at my local station. BP is pretty proud of it at 3.61 a gallon. I seen a gas study by a news station and BP gas had the most additives that keep your valves, injectors clean. So once in a while I might run it if I see a difference in my mileage. If not I can wait and by the 87 oct. non-ethanol in Iowa for less.

Talking

I love my Charger. top end rebiuld, just over 400hp. Oh yeah.....14mpg. Just over the SRT boys at nearly half the pormance cost.



This was my "don't Touch" sign I made for shows.

But I like this more:

[IM.



Rarely above 65mph. 100% real gasonline. 13miles commut each way. easy and flat.

And it's a real hoot do drive. just like my Charger. And I think I got a grip on the MFT thing.

That looks great!
I'd like to see those results, but I am running higher speeds on the interstate.
I also have the manual which is rated less.

Filled up a couple times already (at least 10 gallon fills with about .3 gal difference between the two). On the first tank, I averaged 33.7 miles to a gallon. Next tank was 34.3 to a gallon. I would say I'm doing 34 miles to a gallon on average-calm driving style. I had however hit speeds up to maybe 78mph on the second tank. Driving terrain is mostly flat with about 65% of the driving being on the highway. Total mileage of the car is over 700, below 800 miles. Car is 12 days old (yes I drive a good amount).

Loving the fuel efficiency of this car compared to my 2005 Subaru Forester 2.5 XT.

One day since new and 211 miles / 6.2 gallons = 34 mpg. Mostly highway and mostly 70 - 75 mph. 5 spd. I hope to do better as the car gets broken in (and I slow down a tad)

Owned mine for 15 days now. Averaging 31 mpg on a daily commute of 65 miles round trip. There is quite a bit of stop and go through several towns on the way. I have been running her a bit rough during the break in so hopefully mpg's will increase. Still a lot better than the 18 mpg I was getting from my Nitro.

After almost 2 months of ownership, averaging 35.2 mpg (30% hwy, 30% suburban, and 40% mountain/hill driving). Focus Titanium with DCT. Not bad. We'll see if this improves after the 1st oil change.
