Updated mileage figures for my '17 2.3L AWD Reserve:
2/27/17 249.7 miles 20.8mpg
3/26/17 425.5 miles 21.9mpg
4/4/17 637 miles 22.5mpg
4/13/17 865 miles 23.7mpg
I check my mileage the old fashioned way by dividing the miles driven by the number of gallons (US) of fuel put in. I don't know what kind of figures the computer would give me.
Most of my driving is stop and go with some highway. I am 72 and probably drive like it most of the time. As you can see, I don't drive this vehicle a lot. I have 18" tires with 35psi. I always use 93 octane fuel. Next week I'll get ambitious and change the oil over to full synthetic Mobil 1. That coupled with a few thousand more miles should get me to at least the advertised 26mpg. I'll post the results in a few months when I hit 3000 miles or so.
For comparison purposes my previous vehicle ('14 Escape Titanium AWD, 2.0L, 18" tires) would get about 25 in the city and just under 30 on the highway. The Escape is about 400 lbs lighter than the MKC, and had the smaller motor.
