Dash says 21.5 average. Good mix of highway and in town. Seems to get about 24 on the highway. I normally have it in ecomode. The different modes make a huge amount of difference.
I have 415 miles on the truck with mixed driving. I have been intentionally driving like a grandma and selecting eco whenever I remember. I am averaging 19.1 on the computer. My 2016 was 15.9 with same driving.
I had a vehicle in the shop with this exact scenario (they had no clue). Ended up being rats had nested (due to severe freeze spell) and chewed up some of the electric lines. Had to file a claim with my insurance for them to replace my entire electrical wire harness. The part itself was not expensive, but the labor required brought my claim to over $5kFord will not send an engineer out because of Covid. They are playing phone tag. My truck has been in the shop three days last week and so far three days this week. They are going through the wiring system trying to find out the problem. I told him I had to have my truck by this Friday. We will see how that goes.
Not a silly question - but the answer is "yes". That's what makes it a hybrid. Both gas and electric motors run. There is a power flow option on the main screen that shows you whether you're running on battery, gas, or both, and why (engine cold, charging battery, etc.)This maybe a silly question but is the electric motor and the 3.5 ever running at the same time. I thought it did just because of the higher HP. If so does this add to those numbers of the electric miles or is that only electric no gas engine? And to conform to the thread, if running in combo does that help MPG? Novice
It might, I think the only way we'll know is if someone logs "knock count" running with both 87 and 93 octane. If the truck isn't pulling timing due to higher knock count when running 87, then the premium is not doing anything for us. But if knock count is lower with 93 then it may run better with premium. I certainly might run premium situationally, like when pulling or hauling a heavy load in the summer, but normal driving should only require 87 per Ford's info. if 87 is all it needs, I'd save the extra money from premium and make sure you're putting Tier One gasoline in it for the better detergent packages. I've seen the difference off brand gas can make in modern fuel injection systems. Sam's may be Tier One, I have no idea.Just a vague notion that it might run better on premium. At the Sam’s club where I buy gas premium is only for cents a gallon more.
