What kind of route did you take - flat lands, hilly or ? Sounds like a great mileage so far.

We live in the foothills of NC so it started out hilly. Once on I40 east it does smooth out some but never flat for to long. On interstate in 6th gear on cruise the rpms never changed going up hills. Even in Raleigh you still encounter frequent hills. Next time I'am going to rest set trip as I get on interstate and see how high i can get that top number. Also had alot of weight in the back with a huge suitcase with nine days of cloths for a five day trip..LOL, bowling balls, water, sodas, beer and two adults up front. :yup:

Our long-term average so far over about 1,500 miles is 26.7mpg which consists of about 60% city and 40% highway.

Gas mileage is kind of my thing. I'm not a hypermiler but I do record every thing I put in or repair on my vehicles. Have you all noticed in the Owners Manual that the Ford advertised horsepower and torque figures were obtained using premium fuel? I'm looking forward to discovering the differences between the two fuel types. So far I only have ~400 miles on the clock but according to the computer I am a Champion at both Anticipation and Fuel Mileage.

My overall average after 4230 miles is 29.3mpg. Running average for last 10 fillups is 30. Average for last 1200 miles is 31mpg. I feel like I have turned into a hyper miler but cannot seem to hit 33. Still trying.

I'm in Florida, which is flat, so I think that I can expect some of the same mileage around town too.

I wish we had some flat around here. Up down, up down, that's driving here in the foothills.. :shift:

Agree. Mountains on one side, ocean on the other(with lots of road construction in between..lol) and all the apple and molasses festivals going on now.. :) .It's a neat place to live.
