2008 Ford Taurus Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2008 4dr Sedan 263-horsepower 3.5L V6
6-speed automatic FWD
It's got a 20 gallon tank and I basically never see 400 miles on the trip counter. 20mpg in mixed use (almost 40 mile round trip commute) has been something to get used to after living with a 4-cylinderMazda 6. In addition, when I hit 1/4 tank on the gas gauge, the range computer plummets to the point that I start planning a fuel stop within 50 miles of the 1/4 tank mark. I don't know if this is unique to my car or not. see full Ford Taurus review
