hey... hope I'm posting this in the right area :)
I bought a 2000 ford focus ZX3 last november. I figured with a four cylinder engine I'd get crazy awesome mileage, but so far I haven't. I've been calculating it and getting 23-25 mpg in the city. On the highway, I once got 29.8... so I have yet to break 30.
I love my focus... it's been reliable, handles well, easy to see out of. The only thing that bugs me is the 13 gallon gas tank, which has bugged me even more since I figured out I only get 23 mpg! According to <a href="http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/noframes/15789.shtml">this page</a> and others I've found, I should be breaking 30 all the time... definately getting over 25 in the city.
It's got 30,000 miles on it, I haven't done anything to it modification-wise, but I'm open to ideas. What do you all think?
[edit: bloody hell, I just found the part of the forums where you talk about, um, Foci. stupid spacefem. and it won't let me delete the post. sorry guys.]
