My last fill up I got 31.3 mpg. the last few fill up's where.
27.7
28.2
26.9
28.1

My driving is about 50 percent highway. And 50 percent around town. Most of the driving is to and from work. My car is 2005 ZX3 5 speed. And I shift at 2800-3000 rpms.
And I have 1100 mile on it so far. It is a fun car to drive, and I have no mods as of yet. My last fill up for 31.3 mpg was mostly all highway.

On my 5 speed/ZX3 last time I filled up I got 32 MPG.

I shift 3000-3500 all the time (unless I'm filling leadfoot-happy) but even if I 80% of the time am shifting up in the higher RPM's I still get 29-30 MPG. My lowest has been 24 MPG but that was all city driving.

In the ST the highest has been 31 MPG (I think) and the lowest has been 26 MPG. Shifting around 3500-4000 RPM each time.

I get 25-27 in town with my SVT

My last fill up was 220 miles / 8.5 gals = 25.8ish

I can't believe the window sticker said 21-29...it has never been below 24.

03 ZX3/Zetec = average 30-35 mpg
92 octane w/chip.

05 ZX3/Duratec - When I drive it, average around 30 mpg. If GF drives it, 24 mpg. Ya, I found out why her car wasn't getting good mpg. She's got a lead foot.
87 octane

Chevron gas only in both cars.

Bought an 02 Mach ZTS last week... great car except for the TO bearing noise!

27.67 mpg on first tank, 26.53 mpg on second. Combined City/Hiway and not necessarily trying to get good gas mileage.

I am impressed! Years ago I had a 1988 Mercury Tracer (Mazda 323) and I got 30 mpg all the time, while driving it extremely hard. Of course, it didn't have nearly the power of the ZTS and wouldn't go at all with the a/c on.

I drive an 01 SPI sedan and on mixed driving I can range between 28-30 mpg. But if for some reason I have a lead foot for that tank it can drop to 26mpg. My ma's focus which is 2 1/2 years newer gets between 30-32mpg mixed driving.

I had an 88 tracer back in high school. I never paid attention to mpg back then. High gas prices will do that to ya :)

I definately know what you mean about the power. I had a 97 aspire before this and it was only 67hp I believe.

I'm not familiar with moding. I assume this is some sort of addition to the engine? Does doing stuff like this void warranty? As I am considering adding things or whatnot if its worth doing. I mainly drive it to and from work. Almost always city driving most of the time as long as traffic is at or above speed limit I rarely even get stopped at a light.
