I typically get about 100-110 miles on a 1/4 tank the gas. The gas tank isn"t that substantial either. Just run the vehicle till its close come empty, fill it up totally and then divide the miles your drove on your trip by the amount of fuel (gallons) you put in to gain your ballpark gas mileage. My typical is usually about 28-30 mpg (considering mine intake and also exhaust syetem). Seems choose your law pretty well though....and mine front brakes squeak sometimes when i an initial hit them after the rotors have actually cooled. It goes far after making use of them a little bit, i more than likely need brand-new brakes shortly anyway cause im in ~ 51300 miles.

I don"t understand if this is the culprit but it wouldn"t pains to inspect out. The focus does need a fuel filter readjust at 30k (which her nearing) but, ns don"t think you"d check out a diminish in mileage the drastic and at 7,000 miles before the readjust is due. I"m at nearly 40k and also haven"t changed mine yet and my usage hasn"t experienced too much. I generally am in ~ a small over 200 mile at the 1/4 tank mark.
thank girlfriend for your replys and advice. <

>I simply filled the tank and also it concerned 22 mpg. Ns wonderering if i should bring the car in to gain checked out...

My 1995 Taurus recently died (loved the car!) so I"ve to be driving my daughters 2005 ZX4 SES. We bought it offered in March through 23,000 mile on it. Ns really enjoy the ride however accrding come the gas gauge I"m at virtually 1/4 that a tank and also I"ve only driven 149 miles.Why am i getting bad gas milege? This is what I used to get on the Taurus, I assumed I"d be gaining over 20 MPG top top the Focus?I drive about 15 miles a work on the neighborhood roads and also a highway.Also has actually anyone had difficulties with their brakes squeaking? it doesn"t take place all the time however sometimes the sqeaks pretty loud .thanks because that help!
OK, ns drive the same vehicle (only a basic model and a 2007). Mine brakes don"t squeek together of yet yet they"re acquiring there. I don"t know much around that issue.Your gas mileage difficulty is most likely your wait filter. And also unfortunetly air filter are really expensive for the Ford focus (or so I"ve heard). Other owners have reported other concerns leading to poor gas mileage, however I newly cleaned out my waiting filter and also my mileage improved greatly. Simply a suggestion. Currently that you understand that, I"ll provide you some fixes because that that.1. You have the right to order the filter indigenous Ford; I"m certain someone here can get you a quote for that, the share filters are notorious for not lasting an extremely long.2. You have the right to buy an aftermarket wait intake replacement, which usage filters the are lot cheaper to replace and also an aftermarket input will enhance your gas mileage.3. You deserve to take the end the filter and clean it. This is a very complicated task, and also if you don"t feeling confident the you deserve to do the then ns wouldn"t suggest it.I hope this helps.EDIT: in ~ 30,000 miles a poor air filter would certainly be odd... However you never ever know. Mine was poor at 50,000.
