I don't know why other expi owner's are having problem with gas mileage in my case I am not experiencing this considering the SUV's size, weight, power, and comfort this is a win for the buck, we can't compare the gas mileage of this to smaller SUV's and cars,
I guess driving attitude contributes a lot in gas mileage, I do a very slow acceleration from the start til it reaches the right speed comfort. Following the recommended PMS, check up, A?C cleaning will is the key also, right now I am enjoying my Expi for 14 years and still works well, without any problems, just did a tire change twice from year 2000-2014. I love this truck, as a long distance driver, I feel very secured with this.
Comfort, safety features, power.
Change the stock tires, continental tires has problem on the sidewalls.

Improper original windshield install caused
water to leak through dask and into fuse box
causing lose of underhood lite, courtsey overhead maps lites, and rear wiper motor quit.
Ford wouldn't cover it. Overhead map reading courtesy lites, just changing the bulbs major ordeal, micro thin electrical film circuitry under the bulb tore (1/8" wide). Unless you are an
electrical engineer or know someone who is, you either get a new (whole overhead unit),used $50 if you pulled it from scrape yard,
new approx $350 if you can get one. Extreme
poor design, this and many other areas.
Big, safe, large capacity, have had to sleep in it
several weeks total on vacations and TDY. Holds what I need and tows reasonably well.
As big and roomy, the engine and other compartments, why use extremely cheaply made and quality.
