2008 Ford Focus: Fuel Economy Update
February 18, 2009
Our blue 2008 Focus SES coupe has been dutifully snaking through L.A. traffic for just over a year now. Here's a snapshot of the 140-horsepower coupe's fuel economy numbers while in our hands:
Best tank: 37.4 mpg
Worst tank: 16.6 mpg
Average over 16,000 miles: 26.3 mpg
The EPA rates the 5-speed manual-equipped 2008 Ford Focus Coupe SES at 24/35 city/highway. Our car has the optional four-speed automatic.
