2013 Ford Focus ST: Fuel Economy Update for July

August 2, 2013

2013 Ford Focus ST

We added about 2,800 miles to our 2013 Ford Focus ST during July. Contained within that was the typical commuting plus a couple of road trips within California and one to Las Vegas.

For the month, we averaged 25.8 mpg. That's very close to the EPA's 26 mpg estimate for combined driving.

That said, we are still below that EPA combined average in regards to lifetime fuel economy. Right now our Focus ST is showing 23.1 mpg through its 17,000 miles.

Worst Fill MPG: 13.3
Best Fill MPG: 30.2
Average Lifetime MPG: 23.1
EPA MPG Rating: 26 Combined (23 City / 32 Highway)
Best Range: 339 miles
Current Odometer: 17,107 miles
