    Winter tires, studded or no?

    If you do not want to run decent all seasons than get some snow tires. Same size should be fine. I'm in NH and run all season on my trucks (all have been 4x4 or awd) and dedicated snow tires on my fwd cars. Never ran into an issue when I would have needed or perferred studs.

    where to store jump box?

    I keep my lithiam charger in a small toolbag, with a few other items, in the house near the door. Grab the toolbag as I leave and toss it behind the driver seat. Sure I forget it sometimes. If I go out during a storm I put the charger in my edc backpack. I have it accessible if I need it outside the car or to help a co-worker or for whatever.

  5. 2017 2.0L here. Never see above 23.x on the computer MPG. Lately it has been 21-22. I have also noticed manually calculating MPG is typically 1MPG less than the computer states.

    2018 Ecoboost Mods?

    The 2013-2018 Focus ST has the same 2.0l but different turbo (single scroll) Maybe this is what is being referred to and has a lot of aftermarket support.
