BC Drivers: Understand Fuel Economy Terms for Ford Vehicles

(Posted on Apr 12, 2022 at 12:12PM by Darby Riales)

<a href=""><img src=""alt="Fuel tank for Ford vehicles”/></a>With the ever-growing green movement for more energy-efficient vehicles flooding the nation, there has never been a better time to learn about fuel economy terms in the auto industry. Please note that this article covers gasoline models only.

Ford vehicles are much better on gas than they used to be. Now, many of the popular models in the lineup - including the F-150, Escape, and Explorer - are available now as hybrids. even the iconic Mustang has undergone an overhaul with a fully emetic version already headed to dealership lots.

As for conventional gasoline-powered automobiles, there are a few terms you may want to gain a deeper understanding of. First is the city fuel economy. This is the average number of miles or kilometres one can travel using a single gallon or litre of fuel. This estimation is based on urban driving conditions during lab tests. Similarly, highway fuel economy is the measurement of miles r kilometres travelled at highway speeds on one gallon or litre of gasoline.

The other term you should be familiar with is combined fuel economy. This puts both city and highway estimations together to get a happy medium. It accounts for 55 percent highway and 45 percent city driving conditions.
