I have 2003 ford ranger and a 2012 escape both get great MPGs as a mechanic and knowledge of the system I have to tell you the ECU's learn how you drive and is all electronically controlled so if your getting Poor MPG's its cause you have too heavy of a foot. you can tell this with the Bar graph in the display. Its commonsense the hard and faster you lay down the pedal the more fuel your going to use its all in the driver and everyone is different. Just like there opinions I feel for is make ten time the effort then any other manufacture in the industry right now, and I think is ballsy for them to be changing there direction in such a tough market and I feel they are doing it well and at times Better then Toyota or Honda. I a true Patriot and support my country no matter what, its the only true American manufacture out there. Daimler Chrysler was bought buy Fiat 2 years ago and GM is all about corp gain and gov politics. Ford has continually listen to Customer demands and paid off 95% of there corp Debt, Go fordReport it
Ran out of room. So I will continue here. FUEL MILAGE... My old 2010 6cyl AWD averaged 22 MPG according to the dash read out. Fuel tank, when I filled up, I could go approx 330 miles to empty. The new 2.0L 4cyl Turbo is averaging 20.5 MPG, that is using regular gas. BEWARE ford is claiming high MPG but that is based off of Premium fuel. This is real life info, what a disappointment, and to figure that my company got me the new model to save gas what a joke. I have run the tank empty twice to 2 miles to empty and packed the tank full on fill up and can only get 13.5 gallons in before it spews out. Ford claims 15 gallon tank, so I find myself filling almost every day, I can only go 260/270 miles before empty again. Double wammied on the fuel issue.Report it
I own a 3.5L Ecoboost engine (F150). I too was a bit disappointed at first in the mileage. Then I analyzed the situation: 1) The engine is far more powerful than preceding engines. That power has to come from somewhere -- fuel. 2) The weight of your foot factors heavily into the mpg. If you consistently kick in the turbo, you'll get worse mileage. This is a given with a turbo engine. 3) Do you drive primarily in an urban setting (even urban highways count)? If so, you will get worse gas mileage. The engine is not really good for city situations. However, it shines on the highway. With my 3.5L 4WD supercrew, I get 20 mpg on the highway. That's a marked improvement over past vehicles... and I can tow a 10K pound trailer if I need to without the truck complaining.Report it
