Getting 350+ miles on a tank.
2/3 highway, 1/3 city ripping through the gears at least once a day.
Only mod is a k&n filter.
:-)))
I figured a higher flowing filter and exhaust would help. I did those mods on my 06 zx3 and noticed a diffrence.

All the mag's including the new issue of Car & Driver- Dec. is listing the fuel tank w/ 12.1 capacitiy. The range would like my old 5.0 Mustangs w/ a 15.7 gallon tank. My '05 ST has the 14.5 gallon tank which I can get over 400 miles with. Who wants to spend time at a filling station so often?

I believe my new owners manual says a 12.4 gallon tank. My first tank I got an average of 19mpg...but I was smashing everywhere I went. We'll see how this next one turns out lol

I'm curious to see more mileage figures. I'm torn between the fiesta, focus SE and ST. Coming from a STI, I just can't afford the crap mileage anymore.

I have K&N on my Range Rover and what I'm hearing from the car guys is it lets too much dust/dirt into the engine. Great for racing but bad for longevity. They are recommending a full synthetic fiber replacement like the ones Amsoil makes. So that's what I'm going to hunt down.

I live up in the hills (twisties). I get combined 24 but I know I could get 28. Really just hard to reign it in. My other vehicle gets 16 MPG so I'm happy to get something better.

The tank I agree is very small. Modern cars seem to have undersized tanks.
