    I know none of us bought the ST for the gas milage, but the car is certainly capable of great milage. I took mine on a 500 mile trip for business and I go 37.7 MPG for the first 381 miles of the trip. That's not the dash display but doing the math. I have 40.2 displayed for the last 120 miles of the trip and the car really loves cruising. This was doing 60-65 MPH with some slower traffic due to the snow yesterday in the Northeast.

    Also, I spent 10.5 hours in the recaro seats and was totally comfortable the whole way!

    So glad I upgraded to this car!

    Here in the Bay Area with spirited driving just broke 30 mpg. 40 seems high but congrats!

    Well this last weekend was spent at a Track Day and I only got about 20 MPG.
    But it was worth every penny.

    After 4 tanks I'm averaging 25.8 mpg. I installed the Cobb Economy tune this tank, and it is up to a whopping 26.9 mpg. lol. Houston rush hour sucks.

    lol, 20mpg on the track is awesome. I got 9mpg in my '06 S2000 and 12mpg in my '00 Miata.

    :) Same city same mileage. In 2 fillups had 24.8 and 25.0 actual mpg. Computer was 25.0 and 25.7.
    Unfortunately the avg speed is about 28 mph so lots of gas burning down time.

    One thing I haven't found (because I'm not a data geek like the rest of you) is a second trip distance/mpg meter.
    Is there some other button other than the stalk? I haven't had a vehicle without 2 trip meters in years...

    Oh yeah and I have found no functional difference in my wife's Focus Sync and the Fiesta's Ford Touch other than the pretty colors.

    I definitely did include mileage as a big part of my buying decision. The FoST fell quite short of my magic number 30mpg combined. Here in winter on the econo tune I hover right around 30. I am sure that summer plus 93 octane will yield a solid 10% improvement over that in conservative driving. Keeping the foot out of the boost is the challenge :)

    I doubt I'll ever be able to manage 30 mpg average. Too much of my driving is city driving, and, on top of that, my FiST came with the requirement that I "put my foot in it" (the boost, that is) at regular intervals. :whistling:

    I don't know of any other on board trip computer; I too thought it odd there was only one, but there it is.

    My ave speed is only 23 mph; like you said, lots of gas-burning with no movement.

    Ah, that's part of the complimentary "Performance Package" that Ford includes with every ST they sell! ;)

    I'm averaging a touch over 27 mpg, mostly city, in the DC Metro area. My 2003 Protege managed about 23mpg.
