Hi folks... well latinamerica also has Fusion, but just the SEL.. I had the car since 1 month ago.

For me is awesome, previously I had a Toyota Corolla... but the fusion obviously is better V6/3.0, leather seats... well i think i going to learn a lot from your experience and tips!...

I going to take pictures from the car to share it here, up to now I just have one concern and it's about the fuel, althought the fuel in Venezuela is cheapest than other country in the world (only $0.04C for liter); the consumption of fuel is very high... that is normal?.

I put fuel every 4 days, thanks to God every time i put the tank full i spend only $3 :klavergreg:.... how much do you spend?

Regards!

Then a warm welcome to you, amigo!

Gas prices in the U.S. are about .70 cents a liter (had to convert and remember 3.8L = 1 gallon :lol:)

It cost about 45.00 right now to fill up a Fusion. What is your typical miles or k/m per gallon?

Ok, my mistake. I don't know how I didn't catch that. Anyway, how many kilometers do you get per liter?

Hi mrc.. don't problem... but I tell you i don´t know how to convert de km on miles, and liter in quarter... however someone put in the foro 3.8 lts is gallon that's right?...

well in the city the consumption i high, like 3kms by liter (you must consider the temperature, and the traffic jam), but in highway to others cities is like 9km maybe 10kms by liter...in my last vacacation i went for another city heren in venezuela, and the distance it is of 650kms and single it fills the tank once...

Congratulations on the Fusion X & welcome to the forum. Sounds like you are enjoying the Fusion so far. With respect to the mileage and gas, we are paying $0.93/litre of gas in Toronto right now and my 3L V6 auto does 8.9L/100 KM with highway driving and 10.8L/100 KM city driving. Please keep in mind that my city driving is not in traffic unless I have to stop for the traffic light. The V6 generally gives poor mileage for stop and go traffic and short trips around town. If you press the middle button (I think it's set-up) 2 times and then press the right button (I think it's reset) your display will change from metric to imperial and automatically convert liters into gallons, kilometers into miles.

Happy driving!

Wow, that is eating up the gas. Three KM per liter is under 12kms per gallon. Roughly, a 1km = .6 miles. You're getting less than 10 miles per gallon in the city? That must be some bad gas.

The highway miles seems about right. 650 kms would be about 400 miles on your tank and that would be around 25 miles per gallon. Your city mileage doesn't sound exactly right.

Having seen the traffic in Caracas when I was much younger, I'd believe his mileage estimates....

Hmm.....10mpg...

That kind of sounds like the type of mileage my computer tells me I'm getting. Sad thing is that it's not really far off from what I'm really getting.

Haven't had the Jusnes tunes, Magnaflows, and Steeda CAI on for long enough to see if I'll actually get some decent mileage though.

I sure as he** hope so.....
