WIND!!I get above 75 and mileage does indeed drop off so at 75-78 with a head/crosswind, 23 sounds right.

keep in mind some foreign competitor vehicles get slightly better mileage but require premium which here in the Chicago area id an .80 cents upcharge. the MKC requiring regular is a big plus.

I have had my CPO 2015 MKC since December 6. Over the 6000 miles I have driven, I have averaged 26.2 mpg. I’d say about 60 percent of the travel has been rural/suburban roads; 20 percent highway and 20 percent “city.” Very pleased with that, and with the advent of somewhat warmer weather in the Northeast, have been seeing my daily average increase into the 27-28 range.

Have to agree with Blankster. I feel no difference in this car between regular and premium. 15 HP gets lost in the tranny so no advantages to premium on this ride unless you like supporting big oil. Anyone talking about the motor running better is smoking the good stuff too often.

Just got a 2019 MKC 2.3L and running 25-26 on the highway at around 65-75 mph. In NYC forget it, with the stop and go traffic kills the average down to 16-17. With premium gas here 50 cents more than regular, I don;t see the advantage on using premium. CAr seems fast enough although there might be a little lag when flooring it before it kicks in (D mode; haven;t tried it in S mode) Any ideas?

Also, what is considered city driving anyway?

To me city driving is stop and go traffic, stop signs, traffic lights, driving under 90 kmh. Highway driving is go 90 kmh or more for an extended period of time without having to slow down.

I have 1100 miles on my 2019 2.3T Average is 18.5mpg. I'm getting around 25mpg on the highway doing 65-70mph. Driving in NYC (Manhattan) I got 8-9mpg with all the stop and go traffic. Using regular 87 octane. All readings are from the car's display. Not calculated on actual gasoline fill-ups.

I just tried measuring at 65-70mph on my 2.3 car with 1000 miles running regular gas and got around 27mpg. You can push it to 29 for awhile. In NYC street driving Manhattan I got 8-10 mpg but you can walk faster as far as speed.

I have a 2015 2.3 EcoBoost. My commute is 35 miles both local and hwy. I'm only averaging 23 mpg with 87. I have minimum traffic and about 70 on highway. Why am I unable to boast better MPG?

Well if you live in a metro area with winter blend fuel your mileage will go down at least in winters.
