I very rarely have my car in D. I also see better highway mileage when the car manually placed in 6th and I'm in CC. If It begins to bog I downshift then go back to sixth.

One point is EGR.. The little devil EGR usually ruins engine braking.
Most manual transmission cars in my recent past have needed to block the EGR valve in order to get ANY engine braking..
I wonder if the Mk3 setup is shutting the EGR so there really IS some engine braking.
In my manual 2012 if I am using cruise control on a long downhill (Here we have a long hill going up to the local water divide on I94 from Milw to Waukesha) with cruise on.. the car does maintain the speed limit.
In neutral on the same downhill the car gains over ten mph.

I'm pretty sure the mk3 Focus doesn't have an EGR.

RockAuto and FordParts.com tell me otherwise...

EDIT: Although, ShopKey doesn't tell me anything about its existence or whereabouts.

I can't find any sign of it in the service manual either, other than two entries in a copy-pasted diagnostic chart (for "poor idling" and "engine run rough").

EDIT: What I'm reading says that Ti-VCT eliminates the need for an EGR because exhaust gas temperature control can be done in timing. Sources: [1] [2] [3]
