About two monthes back i was at a mud bog, and after a few hours the captain convinced me to take the focus throught a mud pit. I went throught it twice, made it throught the first time, and got stuck the second. The undercarrage got really muddy. I cleaned it, but since then my gas mileage has gone down about 4 to 5 mpg. And its not because of using A/C because i used it the same amount before as after i went throught a mud pit. I know i am going to get flamed, but o well hopefully somone can help me figure out what i did.

Thanks,
Brandon

O2 sensors fouled? That might do it. No CEL?

don't even bother... I doubt you will be able to restore the condition back to it's original state...

Just give it a quick cleaning for storage, and purchase a new cold air intake from Marcy Motorsport... that will improve your gas milage, and add horsepower at the same time.

And don't take it thru the mud any more... focus don't like that, unless they have a suspension over-haul from a rally group like M-Sport...
