First week impressions, happy.

I've had my 2017 EX for a week now. I'm really impressed with the highway mpg. I'm getting well over the rated 46mpg.

On my way home from the dealer in Norfolk last Sunday, after we had dinner at Exit 92 on I95, I had the dash report 52mpg for the last 80 miles (it reset on start-up there) of mostly highway driving.

In between Norfolk and the diner, I showed 50mpg avg after 54 miles, while doing 75mph on I64 with the orange bar IFCD well over the 50 mark.

Today I went to my parents for dinner, 26 miles of highway and backroads. I reset the dash MPG monitor before I left and got 61.6mpg for the trip.

The DTE gauge went down only 13 miles. My dad and my sister both tested the car around on the local back roads and by the time they were done we were sitting at 55mpg. After resetting it on the way home I got 58.8mpg.

Around town I haven't gotten the handle on hybrid driving totally, but I'm getting around 45-48mpg.

Coming from the Crown Vic getting 14-16 around town, I'm happy as a clam.

Glad you liked it I have a 2017 EX and I'm averaging upper 50s to 61 MPG going by the dash redoubt, when I figure it out I get about two miles per gallon less

Another 54 mile round trip to my parents today, I filled up and reset the MPG last night, I had 65.2 on the average MPG readout at their place, and 58.3 (peddled faster) when I got home w/o resetting it in the middle. I haven't even taken one pip off the fuel gauge yet.
