Hi Cobb - please excuse my noobness, but what is FAS? I looked all over the site and found forced auto stop, but I don't know what it means and how to do it.

Sorry, its where you are coming to a stop and you turn the key off and shift to nutral an coast. The Focus I drove had an automatic starter, so all you had to do was give the key a quick twist and it would crank til the engine fired up, shift to drive and go again.

You can do this as a modified pulse n glide technique.

08 Focus 4 door

I have a 5-speed model, which allows me to coast a lot.
I have managed to get the on board average mileage up in the upper 40's over 150 mile route. I have just started moding, and hope to bump it up quite a bit. I am working on grill blocking, a deflector for the wipers, removing the side mirrors and changing my rims to moon hubs.
I will post pictures soon. The manufacture states .32 dc on this model car.
Anybody had any luck with chips tuned for higher mileage?
