After picking up my ST in Dallas Friday night I drove about 180 miles and averaged 28mpg driving between 75-70. 2 days of driving in town it's dropped to 24.8, however it's hard to go easy on it!
We would like to create one thread to let everyone know what the Focus ST real world gas mileage is.
Please post what type of gas you use (Unleaded, Premium, etc) along with your MPG.
I'd like to see some results when you go a little less heavy on the pedal Dan. LOL
Of course that is what the computer was telling me.
I know that my 2010 Focus mileage kept getting better and better as the miles went up and had pretty much level out by 20K miles.
It started out with about 26 MPG, with my mixed (about 1/2 highway and city) back and forth drive to work which is the only time its driven, and is now getting 34 MPG.
So I expect the mileage to get better as the engine breaks in and the computer adjusts the tune.
BTW did you get a rubber insert in your cup holders?
I'm driving to S.A. tomorrow, so I'll post MPG later. Can't wait to drive it! I only got to put 37 miles on it today. Already had 10 when I bought it. Wait.....who drove it for 10 miles if it was in the showroom??? hmmmm.....
I saw up to 29mpg while cruising I35 at ~70mph. Above 75-80mph the mileage starts to decline and hits around 26-27mpg. Start adding in-town use and I'm around 24mpg. This was ~275mi of driving total. I'll be digging into to ECU to see if there's a way to eek some economy out up to 85mph as most of the roads here I travel on have 80-85mph limits!
I don't think mine is going to see good fuel mileage for a while, it's just to much fun to rev it up going around town. Once that wears off I'll take it easy through one tank of gas and see what numbers I can get. My last car (Lexus ISF) averaged about 12mpg in town so I'm already seeing double of what I'm used to
@Braden - Will you have the car at the shop tomorrow night? I'm planning on cruising by for the car meet?
Braden, we got get together and roll out to the drag strip to get some baseline runs
