    Hey guys, I have an 01 gt. I changed the fuel filter for a standard motorcraft one(also used a fuel system cleaner) and suddenly my car has started to waste gas like crazy. I haven't tested the mpg yet but I don't think taking a 30 minute drive on a highway should waste almost a quarter tank...
