I know none of us bought the ST for the gas milage, but the car is certainly capable of great milage. I took mine on a 500 mile trip for business and I go 37.7 MPG for the first 381 miles of the trip. That's not the dash display but doing the math. I have 40.2 displayed for the last 120 miles of the trip and the car really loves cruising. This was doing 60-65 MPH with some slower traffic due to the snow yesterday in the Northeast.

Also, I spent 10.5 hours in the recaro seats and was totally comfortable the whole way!

So glad I upgraded to this car!

Well this last weekend was spent at a Track Day and I only got about 20 MPG.
But it was worth every penny.

After 4 tanks I'm averaging 25.8 mpg. I installed the Cobb Economy tune this tank, and it is up to a whopping 26.9 mpg. lol. Houston rush hour sucks.

About 24.8 last I checked, in city commute driving.

:) Same city same mileage. In 2 fillups had 24.8 and 25.0 actual mpg. Computer was 25.0 and 25.7.
Unfortunately the avg speed is about 28 mph so lots of gas burning down time.

One thing I haven't found (because I'm not a data geek like the rest of you) is a second trip distance/mpg meter.
Is there some other button other than the stalk? I haven't had a vehicle without 2 trip meters in years...

Oh yeah and I have found no functional difference in my wife's Focus Sync and the Fiesta's Ford Touch other than the pretty colors.

I definitely did include mileage as a big part of my buying decision. The FoST fell quite short of my magic number 30mpg combined. Here in winter on the econo tune I hover right around 30. I am sure that summer plus 93 octane will yield a solid 10% improvement over that in conservative driving. Keeping the foot out of the boost is the challenge :)

I doubt I'll ever be able to manage 30 mpg average. Too much of my driving is city driving, and, on top of that, my FiST came with the requirement that I "put my foot in it" (the boost, that is) at regular intervals. :whistling:

I don't know of any other on board trip computer; I too thought it odd there was only one, but there it is.

My ave speed is only 23 mph; like you said, lots of gas-burning with no movement.

Ah, that's part of the complimentary "Performance Package" that Ford includes with every ST they sell! ;)
