You're absolutely right. If you drive sensibly you can achieve decent mpg rating. I do most of my driving in the streets, and I still get about 23 miles around town. But oddly enough, not that much better on the highway -- maybe 26 or so; however, I do have to confess that I tend to have a heavier foot on the interstates. LOL! That might have something to do with. (I do love to hear the roar of the exhaust.)

And, btw, I bought my focus in '03 when I was 58.

Just bought my SVT and I'm driving the living hell out of it! Its a quick little bugger and I love how it handles- it's really a challenge to get it to understeer, even on s**t tires!

All around great car!

I approve.

I will be 66 in January 2013. My '04 SVT EAP has 66+K and the only performance mod is an FSWerks tune (thanks Randy!). I never get less than 28mpg in the "city" (pop. 8000+) and better than 33mpg @70/80 mph on I-95. It is a superb little GT.
