I did a 408 km's today and was in Eco mode on the way up 204 km's and Normal on the way back 204 kms.I did my first highway drive this weekend, got 12L/100km, but the hybrid never came on when driven at highway speed. I this normal?
You didn't even bother to wave as you drove through Sacramento! That was me on the side of the road crying because I haven't gotten my powerboost yet to play the MPG challenge game.The mileage is one thing, but I really like the range as well. I drove around town for a few days, drove from the Peninsula in NorCal to Tahoe, drove around there for a weekend, and drove back. And I never filled up. Still 100 mi left on the tank. That's a luxury IMO.
I have 1600 miles and average any where between 19 and 23 mpgI am curious to know what folks are getting for MPG for around town and for any highway trip in the real world. I don't expect that towing would see any improvement over the 3.5 Ecoboost, but lots of us buying these are getting them in hopes of overall improved mileage.
Well, I am a very sad boi right now. I decided that for my first trip from Sac to San Jose, that I would do the same route that I call my "MPG run" because I can take highways where they are 55-60mph without bothering anyone. The above pic was my 2017 3.5 EB XLT 4x2 with 3.55 ratio. It didn't occur to me that it was probably my final trip with that truck and to do the MPG run until about 20 miles in, which is just flat getting out of Sacramento and doesn't affect the overall number really.So just for fun I decided to do a "best MPG" run on what I hope is my final trip from Sacramento to San Jose before trading my truck in.
This is NOT from a Powerboost (don't have it yet) but from my 2017 XLT 3.5 Ecoboost 4x2 3.55 ratio. The EPA rating is 18/25 on it, but I can beat that by going 55-60mph (getting like 26-27mpg). So I used mostly highways and country roads where going that speed isn't annoying to anyone. The route also includes stop lights and stop signs in a few towns, which hurts a bit. It will be fun to try this exact route when I get my Powerboost! Would be awesome to break that 26mpg barrier that is so elusive...
