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

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

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

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

Great fuel economy. Abt 30 mpg with hard highway driving and abt 26-27mpg with all suburban driving. see full Ford Focus review

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

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

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 2dr Hatch 170-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed manual FWD
It is very heavy on fuel. Around 11.5l/100km in town and 7.0 to 8.0l/100km on the open road. see full Ford Focus review
 

Ford Focus Gas Mileage (MPG)

Unlike other fuel economy surveys, TrueDelta's Real-World Gas Mileage Survey includes questions about how and where a car was driven. So you can get an idea of the Ford Focus's real-world MPG based on how and where you drive a car.
