Back in 2013 when I bought my Escape. I was getting pretty good mileage. 28kms / litre. After about 2,000 km on it I started seeing it go down. I asked service manager at City Ford why I’m getting less gas mileage. He asked how far I drive etc and I was going about 1/2 hour drive to work. He said and I Quote “ you have to drive at least 2 hours at appropriate speed to get a correct reading on gas mileage. I said so I have to burn more gas so I can get a good gas mileage??? Should I be taking the long way to work ??? It is now 2020 and live in the city. I have 110,000 kms on it now. New tires, battery,regular oil changes. The sensor for windshield washer don’t work, back hatch is rusting , paint peeling off, low tire sensors not working, hatch doesn’t close all the time.....but WORST of all I’m getting 5.8 kms/litre or 13 miles per gallon. Any tips? Other than you shouldn’t have bought a Ford? I realize cold weather and we burn winter gas right now...but really? ? Should it be that bad?
