ha...thats almost the exact same as me. mine was all highway too tho. up at the philly races and all so alot of um...fast starts (obviously fast is used as a relative term with a focus
)

it may also be good to post what kind of transmission you have, ive noticed the autos get considerably less mpg

380 - all highway - MTX - '01 ZX3
260-280 - all city - MTX - '01 ZX3

250-260 - all city - ATX - '02 ZX5
dont remember highway mileage for the 5

340 highway miles to 10.xx gallons. atx.
its never been that good again, usually around 300.
i usually get about 240-260 in city driving with lots of traffic and agressive driving

I never measured it that way. But, I used to get 26 MPG but now I get 30 MPG

For auto zx-3, I think my yellow baby is doing pretty good.

It's been a while, but I've gotten 425 (or a bit more) miles out of a tank on the Focus (2000 5-speed, no cruise control). Don't remember exactly how much gas I was putting in to fill it, but it was less than 13.2 gallons... Probably around 12.5.

Add 20 for the miles you can run on the highway after the light, and you're right in the ballpark.
