Not as bad as you may think!

ReviewThis 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.
Best FeaturesThe smooth ride. Maybe I'm just used to it, but the kids fall asleep QUICK! Even with the factory installed DVD player!
Worst FeaturesIncrease 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 these automatically!
