Think I have a problem. Consuming way too much gas
From the time of purchase I have had bad MPG. At first I thought the car needed to be broken in, but at this point its been 10K miles and its the same. Im averaging 11-12 mpg!!! This is mostly city driving but just last week I drove from NY to PA for about a 2 hour drive and only ended up getting 13 mpg.
By no means am I an aggressive driver, mayyyyyybe sometimes here and there but for the most part my wife drives the car and I assure you she isnt no speed racer. I mean in order to average out 12 mpg you got to be constantly speeding and taking off aggressively all of both that I dont do. I have tried everything as far as driving, slow, fast, braking early, etc, etc.
I dont see any gas puddles or smell of any gas. I know its cold now but im thinking I should at least be averaging 16 mpg at worst.
Has anyone heard anyone else with such a problem? What can it be?
Its ridiculous, my E250 V6 got better mileage....
