How are you getting 25 MPG city?????

I drive in the city all the time, can't go more then 1/2 mile without stopping!

What is your secret, do you roll through reds? and stop at the next green one? lol

Do you accelerate real real real slow?

Or do you just think you live in the city, and really drive in the country?

I'm getting 21, sometimes not even that in the city.


OR...did you just reset it, and coast for a while to get that 25.0 mpg.


Nah, your engine is cold, you just started it cuz you didn't put your seatbelt on, and its running near 2 grand.

I'm confused i give up.

I am about to reach 20,000 miles in my Milan.

I am also getting about 24-25 mpg in city driving. (2.3 with 5spd)

City Driving for me is actually From Johnson City to Kingsport TN. 10 Miles of my trip to and from work is on the interstate, 5 miles on city streets with very little traffic, because I go to work so early. 24.5 mpg is the worst I've seen on the trip computer, but with cold weather on the way (meaning I will let the car Idle and warm up) I'll let You know How low it goes.

Wow. I am getting around 29.6 in mine. Mix of hilly, curvy rural country backroads, and around 25 miles of interstate....that's one way of course...42 mile one way trip to work everyday. I-4 Auto.

Having said that, if I set the cruise, and keep her at the speed limit, she'll get me into the lower thirties! (32-33 being about average). But then again, who can drive 55-65 all the time???

SE V6 just turned 24,000 miles tonight--getting avg. of 25 mpg mix of city & hwy. Sure beats the 17 I was getting in my Sport Trac a year ago. But I can't haul any firewood in the trunk!

LOL. I know right. I'm only at 8,800 miles and I bought my Fusion in May of 06.

My mom bought her Ford 500 on the same exact day, hers was a demo and had like 3000 miles on it. She is up to 10,200 miles.

So I am slowly creeping up on her.

Damn I gotta stop driving.

Ryman,
The 8,800 miles in seven months is probably about average, I think. We only put 713 miles on our 2007 V6 SEL AWD Fusion the first month, which is below average, but we have three cars and just two drivers.

Besides, at 13 mpg city, I really don't want to put too many miles on it. LOL. Boz

At my current pace I'll hit 3-4,000 a 12 months after purchase. All that will change though once I start college. Yearly average is 15,000 according to the epa I believe
