2013 Ford Focus ST: Fuel Economy Update for February
March 4, 2013
During the month of February we drove our turbocharged 2013 Ford Focus ST about 1,250 extremely thrilling miles. We've been finding that the Focus ST's combination of power and handling make even the most mundane drives a little something special. During the month the hatchback averaged 23.1 miles per gallon on 91 octane premium.
That's actually a bit above the 22.0 mpg we've averaged over the car's 7,858 miles, but still significantly below the EPA's 26.0 combined mpg rating. What can we say? We love this car's power, and it's hard not to lay into that right pedal occasionally. Or more than occasionally.
We also achieved our best range so far during the past month, 309.1 miles on a tank of fuel, up from our previous best of 299.2.
