Possible reason for crappy mileage: AC is always on!
So I'm getting about 17 mpg, city and highway combined. It's been very disappointing. We're currently having another heatwave (SF, CA) and I noticed there is always cold air coming through the vent, even when the AC is off! I'll stick my hand out the window and it's like 90 degrees out there, but cold air is still coming out of my vents. ***. Looking back on it, I'm always setting my temp at around 76 or the air will be too cold. (Again, the display clearly shows the AC is OFF) I'm calling my Ford's service department tomorrow. Anyone else?
