Scan Gauge II

I just bought the scan guage. It has already paid off! I went from 38.0 on my first tank....to 40.2 on my second. I really utilize the coasting, by pushing the clutch in, for extra free mileage. This is a combo driving of city/highway.

This tank so far Im at 44mpg! But it wont last, its mostly highway and Im in the city now for a few days.

Automatic. Just a tick over 30 communting to and from work. 34 miles round trip. Mix of 30, 40, 65, speed limits.

Who are the 5 poor saps that get 0-10?

I'm guessing some heavily modded ones or one heck of a lead foot :)

I'm two weeks shy of owning my Focus a year. I have averaged 30.65 mpg during the time I have owned it. I do about 70/30 hwy/city, I have an ATX, I use the A/C during the Summer, and I'm not know for following the speed limit. I tend to drive 5-10 mph over posted limits, depending on where I am.

Slower the better...

I have seen a real change on the highways lately in Michigan. Gas is at 3.99 gallon now for regular. I used to be the slowest one in the slow lane at 60-65mpg. No Im catching semi's and trucks doing 55 mph. Fine with me, I just tuck in behind them.

My last tank gave me 38.4 mpg city/highway.

Previous tank was 36mpg city only! Pretty good for a car with 238,000 miles.

My past 2 fillups I have averaged 28-29 mpg with mixed city and highway use, shifting around 2-4 grand most of the time occasionally stomping on it. Congrats hitting 44mpg. I might have to mess with my tire psi

Brand new owner here. Just picked up my '08 SE Sedan 5-speed last Friday. Have about 460 miles on it now and just into my first (besides the dealership) tank of gas. Hit 36.0mpg today. I don't drive slow by any means. I managed to squeeze 17.0mpg out of my 5.0L Explorer and just driving the same way (except with the 5-speed I have a *lot* more control over the engine) my mpg just keeps going up. I drive 120 miles a day and I'm really hoping to hit 38-40mpg after the engine breaks in and I air up the tires a bit more. Probably try 40psi to see how it goes. So... under 500 miles and already up to 36.0mpg (combined city/highway) isn't too bad?

Update: Checked tire pressure and new from the dealership, all four were at 29 psi. Heh... check your tires folks.

Update: Approaching 6k miles... now getting 42.3 MPG! It just keeps going up!

Funny thing is because its a Focus, I never really checked, I knew I was getting better mpg's than most everyone else.
