At 1200 miles on my Titanium AWD I am averaging a bit over 28 for all around driving. Haven't been on a road trip yet so I am expecting better mpg.

I had my E since March 2013 and put 87 in it. Starting May I started dropping 91 because I need to tow my boat during summer. I don't see any difference on mileage, but one thing and I know it will sound crazy...the motor run smoother on 91. For Horsepower very difficult to see 10 HP more.

That's incredible. Not only is it considerably higher than the EPA combined driving estimate for the 2.0 4WD (24 mpg), it's higher than the EPA combined estimate for the 2.0 FWD and the 1.6 4WD ( both 25 mpg). It's even higher than the combined estimate for the 1.6 FWD (26 mpg)! And all these estimates are generally agreed to skew high.

The one thing I have noticed is that the fuel mileage is pretty sensitive to highway speeds. At 65 I'm getting close to 30 mpg now, at 75 it drops to 26 -27. I've got 18K miles on it.

I have about just under 2900 kms (1800 miles) on mine, and from what I have read so far I haven't tested this enough. The first couple of tanks I used 87 octane, and got about 21 mpg. Then I ran 1 tank on 89 octane (not a great test), and got 23 mpg. Since then I have run 91 octane, and I gotten 25, 28, and 25 mpg. I run it down to almost dry every time. I have noticed the fun factor goes up with the higher octane, but again I think I need to start the testing over.

Do these things have a break-in period?

The owners manual says to calculate MPG after 2000 to 3000 miles for a more accurate measurement. Also hand calculate MPG.

Mine seemed to get a little better around 5K or so.

Don't run the tank dry. Most if not all production cars use a submerged fuel pump.. the gas acts as additional cooling for the pump. When it gets hot out, there is premature wear that can be possible.

Regular 87 octane is fine for the Escape turbo engines. No need to spend the extra $$ for premium, makes no difference performance wise.

Lower exhaust temps, better throttle response, more power. I run only 93, I get all 240 horses!
