That's pretty good. Are you driving mostly highway? For us cannucks, that works out to roughly 9.6 L/100 KMs

A lot of highway, but at 75+ MPH.

these are not bad numbers, considering the ecoboosts are often criticized for being all eco or all boost!

Here are my indicated mpg observations from my 2.3 L AWD, 200 miles on odometer:

11 mpg averaged over 3 miles of spirited driving;
17 mpg averaged over 5 miles city driving;
25 mpg averaged over 74 miles of highway at 65-75 mph;
33 mpg averaged over 19 mile commute at 40-45 mph.

Note that the 33 mpg during commute is probably the best mpg I can manage at this point without hypermiling or something--this commute has only a few stops and allows me the keep the RPMs between 1300-1500 for 80% or more of the drive and mpg quickly drops with a tap of the loud pedal. Also, I haven't been able to see if the indicated mpg is accurate, because I've only filled up once.

Also, new to this forum, hello all.

Welcome to the forum...please let us all know what is exceeding your expectation, and if there is anything we should be especially aware of once we take delivery...since you're already there.

Thanks. A few things that have surprised me are that (1) the b&w leather is extremely soft and comfortable, even the rear seats and the steering wheel; (2) cornering at speed with suspension in sport mode is very flat; (3) leg room in the rear isn't too bad (I'm 6' and fit well enough for short trips) but infant seats will probably need to be rigged in the center to not interfere with front seats; (4) fuel tank could have been bigger; (5) not sure why, but the luggage cover leaves a 6" or so gap between the cover and the rear seat (which I suppose stops the sun, but perhaps not someone looking to see what valuables you have back there); and (6) overall, it's responsive, nimble, and a lot of fun to drive.

It may be that the luggage cover gap is to allow the rear setbacks recline without interference?

Great you're enjoying it!

You're right, the rear seats recline. I had no idea. Thanks!
