Post Hello!! Help me out please! New to focus......

I've inherited a '06 ZX4 SES Auto. I still own my lovely 93 Mustang but the focus is a DD now. It has 14,xxx on it and counting. Always had everything changed out at the dealership so everything seems up to par. I feel like I could do something such as filters or some sort of way to Bump up the MPG but keeping the block and headers what not stock. Any tips or tricks are welcome, I am possibly able to use a (cant think of the computer name) OBD2 I think to tune up some things but don't want to touch it until I get more info.


I also hear that Maroon is this fastest ZX4......

Thanks for your help!!!!

About all you can do is watch your driving style, run tall narrow tires, and make sure the alignment is good.

No, you won't be able to tune your way to better MPG. Any minor gains you might find will take an awful lot of miles to recoup the investment in gas savings. These are already tuned as econocars, you can't just go leaner on the A:F because you don't like buying gas.
