I don't drive like miss Daisy but I don't drive like The Bandit either. I know 7.3 is a perfect world but I'd expect something close to that albeit a little more. I'm lucky to get 400 kilometers to a tank with 150 of that on the highway. I got rid of a car in part to fuel mileage only to end up with the same thing, but with payments again. Its the DCT and it runs great and is a joy to drive mind you, but this mileage is really not sitting well with me.
i hear alot of folks complain about the mileage on their Ti but for some reason, not so many who own other models... my sister has a Ti and drives almost 100% city (greater NY) and gets 23-25 mpg consistently.. I have an SEL and drive mostly suburban and get EPA advertised mileage, usually upper 20s city ('cept in dead of winter when it's in the 23-24 range) and 39-42 hwy (slightly over legal limits) and avg 30 overall.. so im happy...
i've not idea why, discounting driving style and terrain that folks get such wildly differing mileage.
