Well, at 49.58, my last tank narrowly edged out my previous best of 49.54. This car loves the heck out of summer.

Right at the tail end of it, I got my holey exhaust welded up (another story altogether), and finally did a long overdue oil change from nothing-burger bulk oil and a super cheap filter to the last of my stock of Pennzoil Platinum with a Bosch filter. Improvement? Ehhh, maybe. The car is now so quiet I have trouble driving it smoothly, but my butt dyno reports an ever-so-slight gain in torque...much needed in a Honda of this vintage.

I'm happy with my focus 1.0 ecoboost so far now at about 5k miles. I ended up getting a job where I drive a lot of highway miles everyday and I often drive with a pretty heavy foot. I tend to cruise in the 75-80mph range and I'm still averaging around 35.5 mpg according to the in car computer over the past 2k miles. I'm now running winter tires so we shall see how that effects the mileage. I'm no hypermiler but it still gets better mileage than any car I've owned until now.
