I just recently took a trip down to florida and first i filled up with Sunoco Ultra 94 and got close to 35 with 90% highway and 10% city. Unfortunately i couldn't find a Sunoco Gas Station that would sell 94 octane on the way down and i mostly stuck to BP 93. I varied between 27 - 33 with all highway but with construction, stupid drivers and speed changes (varying from 70 down to 55)

I have a Zetec with 5 speed manual with Volant CAI, FS UDP, SVT Snorkle, Bosal Flex, Magnaflow Cat-back, FS/SCT Superchip setup for 93 octane, Alt cut out @ WOT, Early fan activation, EGR sytem disabled, Rear O2 sensor disabled, and Valet Mode. I'm thinking of switching to the Flasher if Randy could possibly work out some kind of deal with me. In the winter i was getting 24 on Ultra 94 and i would mostly baby it around, probally what killed that mpg was the fact that i'd warm it up longer that what i normally do.

On my trip i could easily go to 350 before my idiot light (gas light) would come on, but i'd alway go to the gas station right after it would come on and i'd fill up with either 10 or 11 gallons (13.2 gallon tank)

ive had my focus for about a week and a helf and i filled it up today, this tank i averaged 28.3 mpg, but im still getting used to the car so hopefuly that will improve, ive been shifting at about 2700-3000 rpm's, but every now and then ive thrown it down for fun.

Not to hijack the thread... but, if you are not familiar with modding, I would suggest you do alot of reading before making any changes other than cosmetic.

I have modified many cars over the last 30 years and it's real easy to spend lots of money with minimal improvement.

The current focus is gonna get lowered and that's about it. Can't see myself with fartpipe or other rice stuff! A commuter car is a commuter car!

Just got a zx3 5-SPEED, not quite 1000 miles . . . getting 22-23 MPG!! What is that?!?

Granted I live in the big city, with the stop-and-go bumper-to-bumper blues . . . but with my Escort (SOHC, 5-spd), I never got less than 27, and usually about 30 . . . . Any thoughts?

human being." ~ Rabbi Leo Baeck
