Can anybody please tell me why i'm only getting 26 mpg from my focus, i'ts the 1.8 Zetec s 2010 i do a lot of short distances though like about 2 mile a day so i take it this is why, but can i do anything to improve the mpg for these distances. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

Not using heaters will allow the car to warm up quicker but it's not going to make a big difference.

That's probably going to be the best you'll get. I only get 25 out of mine on short journeys.

Before I installed a k&n air filter for my petrol 1.8 zetec s I was only getting 26mpg, if drive really careful I might get 28mpg but since I installed k&n im getting 32mpg but I'm not really driving long distance and I'm heavy footed plus I like to hear the k&n grrr as I have no turbo or sport exhaust lol hope that helps

well if you assume the paper filter was dirty the the increase will be from both a free flowing filter and the fact its clean ide say the k and n is between 10-15% increase over a paper clean filter even more if its dirty
