600 miles or so on my 2017 SE with the 2.0 Ecoboost. Right now I'm averaging 26 mpg. I try to keep from lead footing it. I keep the auto stop/start function turned off.

OT7, mine is FWD as well. We must have similar driving habits.

They may be using more realistic numbers, but I have still not managed to get close to the 'rated' HWY MPG. I get 23-24 mpg on a 1.5hr HWY drive I take a couple times a month.

26? That's amazing! What kind of driving are you doing? I'm also about 600 miles in on a 2.0 Ecoboost and I'm at 19! That's suburban driving, which is probably worse than either city or highway since there's a lot of acceleration to near highway speeds for very short distances. And of course it's been chilly here so we've been making good use of the autostart, particularly in the mornings. Oh, and there was that hour I sat in the thing with it running while I tried to figure out how all the stuff works.

So it will get better over time. But I didn't even get 26 on the 150-mile highway-only trip I took last weekend. That's nice.

Close to 800 miles now. I'm still averaging over 26 mpg. There are many ways to achieve that sort of mileage. First, make sure all tires are at 35 psi. Second, try to keep a light foot on the gas pedal. I know it's hard with all of that horsepower. Third, use good fuel. If you can find pure gas (no ethanol) your gas mileage will increase. If you can't get pure gas opt for 93 octane. Remember pure gas has higher BTUs than ethanol blended fuels.
Ethanol-free gas stations in the U.S. and Canada
