Question Is this Fuel Mileage what it should be.

I have a 2004 Edge 3.0 2W drive with a 411 rear end.
I had it for 4 years and it has 100000 miles and runs very good or seems to.
The MPG I get is about 16 in the city and I drive to get good mileage, no rabbit starts.
Is there something I could have checked, or do?
I saw where the 4.0 4X4 got this mileage but thought I would do better.
Thanks
Brian

That's about the rating for the Ranger with a similar setup.

Thanks for the reply, I did some more checking and new it said 18 city and 22 Highway so I guess I got what I got. At least with the 411 rear end I can pull my 2400 lb camper.

Re: Is this Fuel Mileage what it should be.

The 4.10 and automatic is the stronger combo to own. The manual transmission with 3.73 axle will get better mileage as there is less drive train loss over the automatic, despite the one additional gear for the manual there is still only one overdrive gear per transmission.

If you change fluids to full synthetics in the engine, and rear axle, you might gain 1mpg as it will lower friction on the drive train. If you have slightly aggressive all season tires or all terrains on the vehicle that will increase aero drag and lower mileage. Hence why most manufacturers put cheap tires on their vehicles that offer no traction to up their MPG numbers.

Thanks everyone, getting 16-17 in the city so it is what it is. But wish it was better.

We all wishes it was better.

My Durango last week went from 10.0mpg to 10.4mpg!! 100% city driving. Oh goodie.
However, my car can't tow my trailers so it is what it is.
