On interstate I usually set cruise on about 62mph.. Im not planning on Ford doing my service. It easy to change oil & filters. We are perfectly happy with our ACE.
I wish we got 9+ mpg but we live in a mountainous area which likely explains the difference in our mileage as I don't have a heavy foot. I use the local Ford dealer to change oil etc. and it isn't expensive. We had a "surging" problem for a while but I put a couple bottles of gas additive in the tank and what ever was causing the surging went away. It runs like a top now! Thanks for your input.
