hi this is my first post on this site.
i love my focus and am happy to see so many other fanatics.

my focus is stock 2007 ZX5 SES
I am only concerned with fuel economy not speed or looks.
i have autolite copper plugs gapped to 0.05 and an upper grill block.
i consistently see 6.43 litres per 100 km or 36 miles per gallon.

i recently tried to do an alignment on my car,myself then i went to a shop to see how bad i did. i tried to get zero toe on the front and back. here is the print out.



anyone have any tips for better fuel economy from a better alignment or otherwise

i really want a low airdam and a lipsplitter but i really wont afford it.

If your really only looking to improve mileage, you maybe able to reduce your weight. Removing the spare tire, back seats, and so on. A weight reduction of 100lbs.+ would make some difference. Smaller/lighter rims and harder tires are going to help some also IMO.
