TrueDelta Reviews the Real Gas Mileage of the Ford Focus

Ford Focus Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2013 Yes, the most impressive aspect of the Focus ST's engine is its fuel economy. A Mitsubishi Evo is rated 17 mpg city, 23 mpg highway by the EPA. A MazdaSpeed3, 18/25. The Ford Focus ST easily exceeds them both, with guilt-free EPA ratings of 23/32. Not that the engine's performance isn't also impressive. With 252 horsepower and 270 foot-pounds of torque, the limiting factor at low speeds is the ability of the front tires to transfer this power and torque to the pavement. At higher speeds it's quick, but not blazingly so. At 3,300 pounds, the Focus ST is too heavy for that. The car's quietness and refinement aren't entirely without a downside. The turbo's boost comes on as a smooth surge, not with a punch to the lower back. Consequently, the Focus ST doesn't feel as quick as it is. see full Ford Focus review

2013 4dr Hatch turbocharged 252hp 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Have never managed to achieve the posted fuel economy average for this car (26), even with extremely careful driving,70% highway. Driving it hard nets only a few mpg worse than hypermile type driving. see full Ford Focus review
2012 4dr Hatch 160-horsepower 2.0L I4

Decent fuel economy. Hitting over 30mpg and occasionaly above 35. see full Ford Focus review

It has more horsepower, torque and is quieter than my other car, but gets 4 mpg higher fuel economy in the same driving. see full Ford Focus review

Unconfirmed reports have stated people getting up to 39 miles per gallon highway with the 5 speed. This is very appealing to me as gas prices will rise again. see full Ford Focus review

Ford Focus Real Gas Mileage: Cons

2013 4dr Hatch turbocharged 252hp 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
It's relatively easy in the other Focus models to average low to mid 30's for economy. This matches the EPA estimates. But the ST struggles to achieve anything close to EPA estimates in the real world. Mileage is more like a minivan than a small sedan. They should have included better engine management (like stop/start) or even separate fuel maps for economy and Sport modes. see full Ford Focus review
2010 4dr Sedan 140-horsepower 2.0L I4

Great fuel economy. Abt 30 mpg with hard highway driving and abt 26-27mpg with all suburban driving. see full Ford Focus review
2007 4dr Hatch 136-horsepower 2.0L I4

30+ mpg really is not nearly good enough. see full Ford Focus review
2005 4dr Wagon 136-horsepower 2.0L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Fuel economy at 30 mpg (average) was OK but not spectacular. I blame the 4 speed automatic for that and suspect I might have done better with the 5 speed manual. see full Ford Focus review
2005 4dr Hatch 136-horsepower 2.0L I4
4-speed automatic FWD
Poor in town and highway. Extremely disappointed. I would not mind the 20mpg if this was translated into 0-60 times of 6 seconds - but it is not. I have no idea where the fuel goes - it is certainly not converted into power. see full Ford Focus review

Economy is somewhat disappointing for a compact - I average 22 mpg around town. see full Ford Focus review

It was only rated at 24mpg by Consumer Reports - and with a smaller, less powerful engine than the 3 (which was rated at 25) see full Ford Focus review

Lower than expected (23-24mpg avg), but performance makes up for it. see full Ford Focus review
2003 4dr Hatch 170-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
Suburban fuel economy is acceptable, at nearly 30 mpg. But on the highway, with the engine spinning well over 3,000 rpm, fuel economy also struggles to crack 30. Many much larger, much more powerful cars achieve better highway fuel economy. Some owners have fitted the fifth gear from the related transmission in the Mazda6 to get more of an overdrive. see full Ford Focus review
2003 4dr Hatch 170-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
I wasn't personally very focused on fuel economy, but the SVT wasn't very fuel efficient for a fairly light car with a normally-aspirated 2.0-liter engine. The original EPA ratings were 21 mpg city, 25 mpg highway. Using the 2008+ adjustments, they'd be 18/23 if the car was available today. see full Ford Focus review
