Question Real Life MPG?

Those of you that have the new Explorer, what kind of mpg are you actually getting?

I just looked at ours and we have had 20.1 mpg. That is for the entire 17,800 miles we have put on the 2011 Explorer V-6 4WD.

well just drove from Detroit to Chicago and only got 19.1 MPG for the trip. Not as good as I was expecting. But we did have 6 people and 5 full suit cases full of cloths for a 11 day vacation. Maybe the weight had something to do with it. There was no wind and no traffic since I left at 1:00 am. Was hoping for around 22.

We just got 2012 Explorer Limited, FWD, with EB and wife is averaging 21 in mostly short in town type runs.

I noticed when I drive it that if you keep the rpms below 2k, roughly under 65mph, the instant reading jumps considerably to show 26mpg.

We have had it for about two weeks now. 700 miles so far.

My moms 2011 AWD Limited V6 has about 9500 miles on it now, and she usually gets around 16-17 city and 21-22 highway. She also drives very fast, and not very easy. I can usually get city upto 18 or so because i am so used to driving my 5.4 slow for MPG
