My Focus was a demo, so when I bought it, she already had 4700 miles on her. My first tank I ran just over 28mpg., the second the same. On the third tank, I started my typical regiment with all the cars I've owned, I put MMO in the gas tank. My next three tanks have been 29, 31, and 33mpg, and it's looking like it will be at least 33 on my current tank. My driving habits haven't changed and where I go is always about 60-40 between hwy and city. Highway speed limits here in CO are 75 on the interstates and 65 on U.S. and State highways, and I take FULL advantage of that.

BTW - MMO=Marvel Mystery Oil

32 minimum. But I just realized this is Duratec gang/clique territory.

Took a trip to minnesota this weekend & only got 26mpg. Thats on an 07 ATX with 5231 miles on it & a cosworth CAI. Only had it WOT 2 times going up & kept the car around 70-75 for most of the trip up. Got into the 80's a couple of times passing traffic, and then drove around for awile before leaving the next day. 29mpg is the best I've gotten. Kind of dissapointed in my Mpg. My father-in-law has a 07 MTX zx3 & is getting 36Mpg.
