Pretty certain the ICE Focus and FFE use the same TPMS system. I didn't put winter tires on the FFE - in four years of Chicago winters never needed them. However, I have snows for our 2012 Focus ICE.

Though it looks like I may have overlooked a critical parameter in my rolling resistance predictions - load rating. The stock tires have a 93 load rating (650 kg). The argument about wider tires having lower rolling resistance is based on the assumption that wider tires are usually spec'd to carry a heavier load, but if the load stays the same then total force required to roll the tire decreases.

I drove to my sister's house, a 65 mile trip, after which I only had 12 miles of range left (I drove at 55-65 mph, with A/C for most of the way, in 80-degree heat). At my sister's, I was able to charge for 3 hours, and gained back 50 miles of range, which was more than plenty to reach my next charging point.

My Leviton EVB40-SPT charging station arrived with a manufacturing defect that caused all three lights on the front panel to illuminate continuously. There was an easy to fix for this, and it may work for you too if you're willing to get inside the thing. Power (red), Charging (yellow), and Fault (red) lit up together, and stayed that way. This is not mentioned anywhere in the installation or user instructions. I first tried unplugging and re-plugging, resetting the circuit, etc. I then called the Leviton support line, and they unintentionally led me to a DIY solution.

I got got my 2013 FFE white platinum leather a few days ago and the afternoon is already 100 and man the black dash is baking hot.
