Amazing fuel ecomomy for size....17.5 mpg overall, have hit over 20 mpg on 5 tanks, high is 22 mpg. 6-speed auto had 2 overdrives.
Ford Expedition Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2014 0 Seriously, what a pig. Not towing - mostly highway (over 400 miles worth) but some city driving as well - in 600 miles, we averaged 13.9 MPG. The car's computer appears reasonably accurate (as a rental, I do not know if it was really full when picked up but the second tank MPG was within 0.5 MPG of my calculation based on mileage). Yes, there were generally 6 passengers (4 adults, 2 kids) and the AC blowing (front and rear) to combate the Texas heat, but I was light with the thottle and it was quite flat. I am well aware no one will buy one of these based on gas mileage but this performance is just abysmal. Hopefully the next generation will improve.

It weights 3 tons, so fuel economy is not going to be great, but 13-14mpg in town and near 20mpg on the high way is achievable.
2005 4dr SUV 300-horsepower 5.4L V8

13 in the city, 18 on the road, not bad but a diesel would be better
2004 4dr SUV 260-horsepower 5.4L V8

Vehicle is expensive to operate
2003 4dr SUV 232-horsepower 4.6L V8

10.7 mpg. Need to say more?
2000 4dr SUV 260-horsepower 5.4L V8
4-speed automatic RWD
The 5.4 L engine gulps fuel. Usually get 14 around town and best of 18 mph on highway if easy on the throttle. Probably all that can be expected of such a heavy vehicle with high wind resistance.
 

Ford Expedition Gas Mileage (MPG)

Unlike other fuel economy surveys, TrueDelta's Real-World Gas Mileage Survey includes questions about how and where a car was driven. So you can get an idea of the Ford Expedition's real-world MPG based on how and where you drive a car.
