2013 Ford Focus ST Long Term Road Test

2013 Ford Focus ST: MPG Update

February 1, 2013

2013 Ford Focus ST

In just three months we've driven our long-term 2013 Ford Focus ST about 6,500 miles. During that time it has averaged 21.8 mpg.

So far our best tank was 30.2 mpg, which was absolutely all highway, and our worst recorded tank was 13.3 mpg, which was surely a fun blast through the hills with the ST's turbocharged engine living at its redline.

Anyway you carve it up we're still below the EPA numbers for the hot hatch, which are 32 mpg highway, 23 mpg city and 26 mpg combined.
