If that's good depends on what engine you have, I would guess on a 1.6. For a two litre that would be very good. I have a 2 litre wagon myself and don't get quite that gas mileage on the highway. More like 7.5 l/100km. Then again the ones with automatic transmission seem to need a lot more gas still. /per

Well, my TDCi wagon would be a rather different beast altogether (5.2L/100km average so far), but when I hammered a rental 2.0 litre automatic around Ottawa and Montreal last year, I averaged about 7.5l/100km.

Presuming that you a fellow Canuck - high 30's/low 40's mpg is as good as you're gonna get. 26 mpg around town is good as well (is this an average or best value? Summer or winter? Automatic or manual? US or Imperial gallons?)
I'm getting a 30.7 total mpg ('03 ZX5) with 75% highway mileage. (I've logged every litre of fuel for the past 6 years). Considering that this includes 2 long winters of driving, I'd say the fuel consumption is still pretty good.
My experience with the 2.0 litre ZTEC engine /W 5 speed manual:
'03 ZX5 Focus = 30.7 mpg (.36CD) '00 ZTS Focus = 29.4 mpg (more urban driving, .31CD) '98 ZX2 Escort = 30.9 mpg (slightly smaller, more aerodynamic .29CD)

Not anymore, it isn't.

I've been getting between 29 and 30 miles per gallon. My car's a US-spec four-door with the 2.0L Zetec engine and automatic transmission. (Same drivetrain as the ZTW, no?) My daily commute is about an even mix of highway and city driving.

A US gallon is smaller than a UK gallon so mpg will show lower and there is the gearing, wheels, etc.. and 16-18mpg on an RS... Change up to second gear may help :) or stop racing the 1.2 nova's and corsa's
