Wow, this really goes to show how much fuel economy can depend on driving style and conditions.

I have a 2017 2.0 AWD, and I don't do much driving in the city, but when I do, it's very hilly (I live in San Francisco). Mostly use the car for long (200mi+) trips. Got about 3k miles on it, I feather the throttle, factory tires, and our lifetime average hovers between 19 and 20mpg (that's about 11.5-12l/100km for you Canadians). I'd be thrilled to get 10.2l/100km!

ETA: This is, surprisingly, worse than the 3.5l v6 Mercedes GLK350 the FE replaced. That vehicle got an average of 21.5 mpg over 24k miles.

I currently have 5,525 miles on my FE and it shows right now on the information screen that my MPG is 23.8.

Of my current mileage, about 1,500 miles is from a road trip to Yellowstone National Park, pretty hilly but a lot of highway driving for those miles. During that drive, my MPG were reading something like 26 maybe (can't quite remember, but it had increased a lot from what it previously was before the trip). My daily commute is strictly city and it is maybe 15 to 20 miles per day, this has started to bring down my MPG reading and I assume it is still not done going down.

Keep in mind folks that the dash gauge is not an accurate way to calculate mileage, you must do it from fill up to fill up manually or with a program to get real numbers.

Cruise set at 80 mph.

Just a screenshot of what I got this weekend on a short highway trip, locked in at 115km/hr.

I currently have 2500 miles on my 2017 2.0 Eco AWD and only getting around 22 mpg highway (10.6 L/100km). Low considering they claim 27 mpg. It did start around 17mpg and improved a little.

Yeah I reset mine a few times, and it always starts nice and low (8.x or 9.xL/100km) but slowly over the course of 4-7 days it climbs back up to 10.1 or 10.2. It once dropped back down to 10.0 for a trip but thats it, I can't get below 10.0... oh well.

To reset it just hang onto the OK button when viewing the mileage screen. It'll make you feel all warm and fuzzy for a few days while it shows a great mileage score Perhaps if we just keep resetting it every few days we can trick ourselves into thinking we have an awesome L/100km or mpg score

Quick question about those apps to track MPGs...If you fill up when you still have about 1/4 tank, will this throw off the numbers? I usually fill up when the low gas warning light turns on or just before it turns on.

I'm assuming it knows you did not use up the entire tank from the last fill up because you put in less gallons than normal on this fill-up, but I could be wrong, maybe they're not that smart.

The apps are using the mileage and gallons pumped, they should not care how much you pump. They will avg the MPG over fill ups.

2017 Titanium 2.0 L getting 24.5 MPG overall. This sucks this day and age. Traded in a 2011 Fusion that got 30 MPG. Bad move with the price of fuel.
With a 15 gallon gas tank it seems like I'm always at the pumps.
And with that I have to log a complaint with FORD.
Small tank and the filler cap on the ( England ) right hand drive side of the vehicle. Ford looking after Europe not their home land?
Sorry for the rant.
