I monitor mileage closely to figure out which gasoline gives me the best mileage. I noticed a lot of difference in my Aerostar, but I haven't driven the Focus long enough to figure out whose fuel works best with it. Give me a few weeks and I'll post my findings here in this thread.

25 city 75 highway

Near future mods will be geared towards mileage... I want 40 Right now I'm looking forward to getting an SCTX2, Marcy CAI, possibly exhaust, 3.41 gear (the big highway mileage booster), and possibly some ignition upgrades, but I doubt those add as much as is claimed from my previous experiences. I'm going to email Marcy when I order the stuff to see if cam alignment tools could void my warranty (probably) because as I recall from old school pushrod days- increasing lobe spread & cam retarding (I'm already retarded)should increase fuel efficiency.

Some time next year I hope to have figured out how to plumb in a remote mounted low pressure turbo (3-5psi check www.ststurbo.com- the [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]*s only do Chevy/Toyota/Honda- mostly trucks) in hopes to have my cake and eat it too.

75 I'm 99% sure he meant 3/4 of his driving is highway, NOT he gets 75 mpg on the open road.

Because if he DID! that would be "alert the media" worthy

SOMEONE CALL MYTHBUSTERS!!!!!!


um yeah, I drive 75% on the highway, which is why I want a taller axle gear, but MM won't answer their phone or emails so I'm searching all over until I find it somewhere else.
