2003 Ford Econoline Cargo E-150 3dr Van (4.2L 6cyl 4A)

Review

I love my new (used) van. However it is misnamed Econoline. I got the 6 cylinder to save at least a gallon or two mpg but see little difference with the more powerful V8 so consider a very thirsty 8 as the 6 is fairly underpowered up hills. Also, need winter tires if in snow or ice, worst traction of any vehicle. Typical van! I knew that going into this, so I am very happy otherwise. It's a great tool shed on wheels, and visibility and safety seems above others. Drive slow and coast (in gear) down hills and maybe gain a mile per gallon. Yet to get above 16 and half mpg even with a v6. Otherwise awesome.

Favorite Features

Large capacity for hauling stuff. Comfortable ride. Driver's visibility. Good heat and a/c and reliable.

Suggested Improvements

Econoline should mean economical not comical gas hog. (other brands are also bad on gas and Ford looks like a van should!)
