2004 Ford Excursion Eddie Bauer Rwd 4dr SUV (6.8L 10cyl 4A)
This is our second Excursion. We
frequently take excursions from SoCal
into NorCal and Central Cal, delivering
finished goods and transporting our two
sons. With a quick mod on the air
intake, we get 14+ MPG, and this
includes 75mph ascent on the grapevine
and fully loaded in the cabin! We got
16.3 mpg once on a trip to Vegas and
back. It's bigger than other SUV's
(Largest), so small cars yield and
Semi's see us.
The smooth ride. Maybe I'm just used
to it, but the kids fall asleep QUICK!
Even with the factory installed DVD
Increase the mileage. We installed a
Tornado into the intake and I
immediately saw 1 - 2 MPG increase. I
understand there are other mods
available without compromising smog
standards. Ford should be installing
