In my 5 speed SPI, I've been getting 33-35 MPG all winter long. Now that the weather is getting warmer, the best I've gotten so far was 38 MPG with mixed city/highway driving. My only secret is no jack-rabbit starts and keeping the speed limit. Boring, I know. But I almost don't mind that gas is approaching $4/gal.

these MTXs are getting FAR better mileage. I average 30 in the winter with mostly highway driving, and well see how it does in the summer. I have no doubt in my mind that I would never do better than 34 :( oh well beats 24 i used to get in a celica

How I hit 30.45 mpg in a 2003 Focus LX with a stock SPI engine. I didn't push her hard off the line and just let the engine build momentum and shift. Never exceeded 60MPH except when passing on the highway where I maxed out at 70mph. Coast down all hills with with my foot off the gas. Avoid as many of the short little to the store, beer runs, etc... Those kill mileage. Keep up on the maintainable aspects of the car like oil, plugs, air filter etc...

Guys, I get 35-37mpg out of my 03 ZX3 zetec mtx and i drive it pretty hard. I get 400-415miles on a tank of gas and that is just when the light comes on. I can get another 50 miles after the gas light comes on.

Hmmm, with this driving regimen you should be doing a lot better then 30.

I agree, With my 03 I typically average around 32 mpg with around 75 on expressway.

2011 SE sedan with MTX. Have 5,800 miles on it.
My worst tank over the winter was 30.5. My best so far is 38.5 calculated (display said 39.2). My display currently has 39.4...little less than 1/4 tank of gas left and I've already traveled 400 miles.
Mostly back road (45mph) driving to and from work with several stop lights and a few stop signs. Once a week highway trip to another work facility across town (35 miles).
My best display reading was traveling 60 mph with 20 mph winds at my back...stayed above 45.5 mpg for 30 minutes.

2010 SES manual. Usually get low 300 mile range per tank.

I average low 28's during my all city commute to work (as stated by computer) hand calculated last summer before it was fully broke it was between 27.2-27.8mpg in the city. I rag on my car quite often though.

Read an article in Car and Driver awhile back that said every inch they went up in tire size at 70mph lost them 1-1.5mpg. I have NEVER got 35mpg at my highway speeds (75+). Sometimes wish I had the SE lol Highway gets me about 30-31.5mpg in the winter. Upwards of 33mpg in the warmer months (again as stated by the computer)

I got 39.67 mpg today on a 200 mile run with 4600 miles on the new Fiesta, so it's broke-in. I haven't busted 40 mpg, but I'm working on it. I usually do the math at every tank fill. Mixed driving stop and go at first then hywy with cruise control set between 65 and 70mph, so a good sample of city and hywy driving.
