1000 miles of ownership so far, 21-22 mpg in light suburb and highway driving, 24-25 mpg on 500 mile trip (fuel economy measured by calculating miles driven divided by gallons of fuel purchased). see full Ford Flex review

I am currently averaging 20 MPG overall with heavy highway use. For the size of vehicle I think that is rather reasonable. see full Ford Flex review

For an AWD beast, 25.6 miles per US gallon on the highway (6 hr run) into ski country, on snow tires, is pretty darned good at 70 mph. see full Ford Taurus X review
