2012 Ford Explorer Long Term Road Test

2012 Ford Explorer XLT: Drowning in a Sea of Gas

February 03, 2012


Every time I look at the gas gauge in the Explorer I can't help but think it looks like the icon is under water, or is it gasoline? Hard to tell with the cool blue color.

Maybe someday Explorers will actually run on a crisp clean H2O. Someday, in the future. The very, very distant future.

For now, we've got Ecoboost. Works for me.
