Real World 2013 Escape Gas Mileage Thread (Began 9/11/12)

According to Ford, the 2013 Escape is suppose to get 22MPG city and 30MPG highway. As we all know these numbers can vary, all depending on your driving style, cargo, passengers, maintenance (e.x. tire pressure) and more.

Post, discuss and compare your REAL WORLD gas mileage numbers here. Don't forget to include anything that may result in a better or worse gas mileage rating!

Are there any differences in gas mileage between the FWD and 4WD Escape?

i wonder if we will have to wait after the engine break-in period to get the mpg rating stated on paper. i know some engines do require this, same goes for power.

Own FWD SEL. Had it since mid-August. 2,300 miles. Currently get great mileage around town (24) and actually slightly LESS on the Interstate. Highway speed here in Wyoming is 75. I do that and nothing more. Interested in knowing how others are doing with similar machine. Thanks.

Surprised even with 2 300 miles, way past the engine break-in, your getting less than 24 on the interstate. Keep us posted on your highway MPG, maybe it will improve.

Have 1000 miles on my 3 week old Escape S with 2.5L engine. Estimated mileage on info screen started out reading 2.2 mpg but has now "increased" to 2.6. Driving ratio is about 60% Hwy (60-70mph) & 40% about town. The manual says the break-in period is at 1000 miles, but a true reading of the mpg should be between 2-3000 miles. Not sure if this is p.r. stuff or if the mpg can improve to the 25-26 mpg overall rating I was hoping to get. I will however check actual figures after the 2000 mark rather than use the infor screen & give a report afterwards. So far though, this is not making me a happy camper.
