2010 Ford Focus SEL Poor Gas mileage

Hi Everyone,

So I bought my Car Dec of 2010, When i was first got the car it had 32k miles on it, it was avg. 28 mpg, i was reading that 28 is the avg on this car combined between City and Highway driving, well I am avg. 23.8mpg now and filling up every 6 days, I have 46k miles on my car now never done any major mateinence other the changing the oil and air filter, Is this normal for this big of drop in mpg within a year.

Thanks in advance

Try cleaning the MAF with MAF cleaner and see if that helps. You could also go to Autozone to see if there are any codes. They check for free and the light doesn't have to be on for codes to be present.

Correction: check the plugs, but if there still the stock platnium ones, then their probably still good.
