The Focus is an automatic transmission. I don't really drive that much because I just got my temps so I am learning to drive. (Are there any good hyper milling habits I should get into?) Right now I am coasting up to red lights, accelerating a bit "easier" and driving the speed limit.
I plan on pumping up the tires to the max PSI and adding synthetic oil. I've never changed oil before so what type of synthetic oil and oil filter should I use?
I have a question too, As far as automatic transmissions, what is the best things to do to get the MPG's other than what has been already mentioned.
I already play the "mileage game" by knowing about how far a tank gets me and going off the trip odometer to get a rough estimate of how much MPG's I am getting. I guess I am kind of at a disadvantage because of two factors as well. I have a V6 in the GP and I am saving every cent to get the GTO I want so the scanning device is out of the question. So like I said earlier, is there any other simple things (no injector cut off switch, ect..) that I can do. My Gp is an auto... well, every GP unless converted is an auto.
Going GTO once I finally get a job. Stayin pontiac all the way.
. I've never changed oil before so what type of synthetic oil and oil filter should I use?
I've never used synthetic, but I've heard that Pennzoil Platinum has one of the best additive packages in their synthetic oil of any oil you can buy at your local Walmart or auto parts store. I've got over 500K miles out of the engine on my '88 Escort without a rebuild using dino 10w40, so I say, why ruin a good thing.
The "virtual egg" works on some vehicles, and on some it doesn't. It works great on my Buick, but on my 4x4 pickup mileage actually goes down. The truck gets its best mileage by giving 25%-30% throttle, and get into a higher gear quicker.
