    Thankfully not a lot of relevance here to the RS since:

    The recall affects the 2012 through 2018 model-year Focus with 2-liter GDI and 2-liter GTDI engines.

    I took the road less traveled, and that has made all the difference.

    The CBC article has a picture of an RS in their story. I sent them a correction, but I wouldn’t hold my breath that they’ll actually correct the photo.

    My RS had a similar issue...

    After the Head and HG recall around Feb, I discovered the RS fuel economy went bad significantly. Took it back to the dealer they told me one of the fuel injector kept opening. They needed to replace that bad one and now everything goes back to normal. Don't know whether there was any computer re-program tho. I doubt they have checked the canister nor the fuel tank...

    Probably. Maybe. Possibly. Let's wait for Ford's TSB before we start jumping to conclusions. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    Frost White RS is best RS.

    i dotn see how it would effect us as we have Saddle Tanks on both sides of the Driveshaft, instead of the regular focus of one big tank

    I think you may have had a similar, or even identical symptom, but the root cause it likely very different. This recall is about a purge valve within canister, not a fuel injector.

    Reading the release directly as Ford wrote it, No. They clearly state it is for those with 2.0L engine built at the Michigan Plant, as we know we have 2.3L cars that were built in Germany. So, at this time the RS is not included unless the part is found to be common and the issue not caused as a result if install or handling of the part at the plant they are currently reporting the recall for.
