On this last tank of gas, I was hoping to get somewhere in the 28 mpg range.

My actual mileage: 29.8 mpg

Yeah, I was pretty happy. Next up it trying to get in the 30's.

I tend to get in the low 30's; however, that is when I am not in the mood for some spirited driving :D

I'm getting this mpg by driving like a grandma. It sucks when you have a Doritos panel van catching up to you on the highway. lol

I do wish I could get a normal Focus with the smaller engine for my daily commute so I could get better mpg's, but hopefully, someday soon my commute will be much shorter.

Same here (except it won't be, an Svt it would be something else like a Crown Vic or something).

Yeah if I ever decide to get a car for performance, it probably won't be a focus. That being said, in another 6 years I would look for a 2012 focus ST. By then I could probably afford one:D

Like you, I'd have to wait a few years for the used ST's to come around, but even then, I don't know if I'd get one. A lot depends on how long this car last before it become a money pit.

Had a good day yesterday working on the car.

I finally replaced all the wire nuts for the headunit with splicing nuts so it's not such a mess behind the radio. My dad was also digging around in some old stuff and found an old antenna buster, and I put that in the car. It helps sometimes but also seems to hurt the signal at times too. I may try putting it on a switch and see how that goes.

I also was able to clean the inside of the car for the first time since early February. As you can imagine, it really needed it, but it still needs my yearly spring go over and the seats and carpets washed.

Lastly, I did a lot of work on the rear interior. I won't say to much about it yet because I'm still in the early planning stages, but basically, I am going over the whole rear hatch area again. The basics are going to stay the same but I'm trying to do a lot of changes to make it look better, sound quieter, and be easier to remove when needed.
