Explorer fuel consumption
Again, thanks for your reply. Interestingly, I spoke to a nice guy in Ford Customer Care who whispered to me that the figures were certainly achieved under 'ideal' conditions. I deal indeed! On a damned dyno. That means no headwind and I wonder how much load was applied to the rollers?
We live in a world where integrity seems to have slipped to new lows. Just as well I'm a 'dyed in the wool' Ford man.
Since I have decided I may just as well return my current Explorer and buy a current model Limited V8, I presume I will be just as disappointed with the economy figures, which are listed as 12/100 highway and 17/100 city. As my model is supposed to do 10/100 highway and 15/100 city and the best I can get is 16/100 highway and 22-24 city, the new model V8 might be somewhere in the vicinity of 20 and 30 respectively.
Say, maybe I should just drive it on a dyno?
All the best,
