Gas Gage

Does anyone find the gas gage erratic ?

I only drove 17 miles & the needle fell between Full & 3/4 Full.
Next time i started my MKC it was closer to full again.

Don't know how i will like the 15 gallon gas tank.
My last car said i have 450 miles to empty on a full tank.
The MKC says 280 miles to empty on a full tank.

Filled mine up yesterday with 13.7 gallons and dash read out said 358 till empty. 6 weeks and1,200 miles and ALL is WELL..
You were almost empty.
Did it start out with lower gas mileage?
I did 100 miles & the needle is Half Full.
Does that sound right ?
Not to me it doesn't, talk to dealer. mine works like all of my other recent cars.
There has to be an MPG display somewhere as well, right? Does it match what you are seeing? If not maybe you have a slow leak somewhere?
I have to check it when i fill it up myself & check the mileage.
I've noticed that on mine: the fuel gauge seems to go down "faster" and then after shutting the car off and turning it back it, it ends up starting "higher" than previously where it was at. Needle was just below halfway mark when I got home from work today. When I went out again, the needle started above the halfway mark...
Did you mention it to Lincoln ?
No I haven't talked to Lincoln yet. I've had my car for only a little over a week now - haven't had the chance to manually calculate gas mileage (which I normally do) after re-fueling. I think I will first see how the calculated numbers look vs. the computer's miles to empty and estimated MPG.
Filled up Yesterday & calculated 22 mpg.
Checked mine after fill up.
Getting 22mpg. with 500 miles on my MKC.
Filled up today and calculated 20mpg by hand (22mpg from trip computer) w/ about only 350miles.
