Lets be clear on this:

Ford America Website
In US MPG: 26/36 (as listed)
In UK MPG: 31.2/43.2
In L/100km: 9.0/6.5

Ford Canada Window Sticker
In US MPG: 30.2/42.8
In UK MPG: 36/51 (as listed)
In L/100km: 7.8/5.5 (as listed)

Ford Canada Website
In US MPG: 30.2/42.8
In UK MPG: 36.2/51.4
In L/100km: 7.8/5.5 (as listed)

Note if you compare the converted US MPG for the Canadian vehicles, they are 4/6MPG higher than that listed on the US website.

PS: I just thought of this, but perhaps this reflects regulatory differences in the way gas mileage is reported in Canada vs USA.
