  1. Terrible MPG- Help!

    Ford Escape General Discussion
    I have a 2017 Ford Escape Titanium 4WD with the 2.0. It has approximately 28,000 miles on it, I've tried adjusting my driving habits and it only gets about 13 city mpg and I never ever get above 23mpg on the highway with the cruise control set at 70 mph. I don't know what to do the dealership...
  2. Really Rotten MPG on 2014 Titanium 2.0

    Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    In September I bought a 2014 with 31k. My daily commute is 3.5 miles total. On weekends I might drive less! And I drive like your grandmother. Gentle pull aways from stops and lights. I slow for turns and brake so easily the cars behind me get impatient. This is all suburban/small town...
  3. Impressive Mileage

    Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    Just took the Escape up for a getaway on Cape Cod. Drove from Jersey to Eastham, MA which is roughly 350 miles one way. Between both trips which totaled a little over 700 miles (and 12.5 hours) the 2.0L Ecoboost averaged about 28.5 mpg which I was very impressed with. Considering I'm a left lane...
  4. Going Past 0 Miles to Empty - Video

    Ford Escape General Discussion
    Hi Everybody - Happy 4th of July! Just did another video for calculating exactly how far we have left in our FE's once the dash reads "0" under "Distance to Empty". It seems like we frequently mention how close we've cut it to 0 miles left- turns out we don't really have to have heart...

  6. What is your MPG while towing?

    Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    Just pulled my camper (2750#) for the first time with my 2015 Escape. I only got a little less than 13mpg! At this rate, with a 15g gas tank, I will have to stop for gas every 3 hours on my next vacation. My Escape (with towing package option) has 10K miles and has been getting 25 - 26mpg on...
  7. New Air Filter for my new 2015 FE suggestions??

    Ford Escape General Discussion
    (FYI, first time poster from Philadelphia) I just got a new 2015 FE Titanium, 2.0L Echoboost AWD, and I know very little about cars except how to drive them. I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions for a new filter, or if/when/why I should upgrade from my stock one. I'm looking for an...
  8. Poor MPG Question

    Fuel Economy and Gas Related Discussion
    Hey... I'm new here & have a question. My Escape has over 2,000 miles on it & the average MPG that shows is 15.2. Is there something wrong here? Maybe the engine isn't broken in yet? It's a little disappointing as I see people on this forum are getting way above what I'm getting. I'm also not a...
  9. Camera View

    Ford Escape General Discussion
    This may be a silly question, but should I be able to see the license plate on the rear camera? On an unrelated note, I got about 28 mpg on a recent 250 mile trip of mostly highway, with about 20 miles of stop-and-go included. Thanks!
