Thanks everyone. I agree, it has been a good go getter. Never bought another car just because it has treated me so well.

They are incredibly useful devices and well worth the money. I agree with cfg83, the Escort can get some great mileage.
As to answer this: On a normal day for mileage? 30MPG. On a better day... 35. There was a point in time that on very long trips I was able to get 42mpg.

Thanks for the link to the scangauge, I'll try and pick one up this month and start my road to seeing what mileage I'm getting. Can't wait to see what I can do with some of these new things I picked up from "the list".


Johnny Mullet: Thanks for the offer. Great to hear there are some really knowledgeable people on here.

I've spent the last 4 years studying this car and getting to know it. I did a lot of write-ups and how to guides for some modifications on a few of their mods on some zx2 websites, so if anyone has any questions on these cars I would LOVE to help!

But if i have any technical stuff i'll be buggin' ya! There's still things I'm learning about it and i love learning.
