Hi great pity giving up on your focus, its only my second ford in many years, its a quantum leap
over my 1956 zephyr zodiac straight six, it would pass anything on the road bar a garage, 12mpg
I recall on a good day....

I've owned 2 Ford Focus's , one was a 62 plate zetec and I was getting 53mpg around town and around 68 on the motorway doing around 65-70 mph so was pretty good. Girlfriend decided she missed her FIesta titanium with power folding mirrors, auto lights n wipers and so we swapped our zetec for a 2011 plate titanium x with all the goodies fitted incl that fancy parking assist where it parks itself ( does work very well actually, albeit a gimmick) ,anyway, I digress, the titanium x wasn't giving the same mpg as the 62 plate zetec despite having the same engine which me and the missus couldn't work out, we did notice it didn't pull away smoothly and seemed to lack power. We took it back to sandicliffe in Leicester and they test drove it and said it was fine so we thought , ok, left it that for a few weeks, ended up taking it back and they kept it a few days with a diagnostic piece of kit and it turned out one of the injectors was faulty , they replaced all 4 and it drives perfectly now and the mpg is around what our 62 plate zetec was giving us, infact it's better by a touch.

 

Also, I put shell vpower diesel in , it's a bit more per gallon but seems to like it. So, it maybe worth getting a diagnostic on it and see if there is anything a miss with the engine that's causing your lack of mpg, before ours had new injectors I wasn't getting any more than 34 to the gallon out of it which I couldn't work out to start with. Cheers, and I know your post is old but you may read it,
