Getting 18 - 19 mpg straight city driving, up to 24 pure highway, 20 mixed. Houston traffic commuting. 13,500 miles. Regular unleaded.

Good fuel economy for a car this size. Hope that helps.

Anyone and everyone should care about gas mileage, for a variety of reasons.

With 1400 miles on the clock I'm averaging about 14 in mostly city driving but not stop and go. What are others getting? Was hoping for 16 18
You don't say if you have the 4.6 or the 5.0, but, but if my 4.6 Genesis Sedan gets 15-17 (real not computer reported), in city only driving (slight heavy foot).

The heavier Equus is going to give up 1/2 MPG, so 13-16 seems right to me.

I am getting around 15-16 in town but I am an aggressive driver. On the highway with cruise set to 75 I was getting 20

My cousin's car is dead. He was getting 10 mpg LOWER than advertised (it was a Jeep, in case you were wondering). Regardless... not only was that an issue, but there was an underlying issue that was worse - it was burning oil worse than it was burning gas. No oil in engine = dead engine.

3 month old car.

For the last 3K miles I have averaged 25MPG. Most of my driving is on rural roads and very little traffic.
Worlds OLDEST POST. My 2011 has 40,000 miles and I drive a lot on highways without too much traffic. this huge V8, 7 years old, still gets me almost 28mpg highway. My new 2016 with 4000 miles does NOT get that good mileage. Makes no sense. I love the old Ultimate more than the new one. I also had a 2014 I traded in for the 2016 because I hated NO video in the back seat of the new ultimate.

I have 116,000 on my 2011 with the 4.6, I'm a fairly aggressive driver that uses a lot of common sense in traffic...why be in a hurry to go no where, but you give me an open road and I'm gone. I still avg 28 mpg with the cruise set at 80...but of course if I crank it up to over 100+ it drops a bit but then recovers again with more realistic speeds.

14 in pure city.... 24-25 on the road. 2015 Signature with 45k miles. Just a bit disappointed in the city number.
My average mixed city/hwy is 19-22...but I stay clear of the city as much as possible. I don't like to touch the brakes...and I use the cruise a lot.
