I have a 2017 AWD 3.0T MKZ.It has about 7k miles.Only thing that sucks is gas usage.I usually fill up this car at almost empty just to see what it'll hold.Dealership and I differ on this tank size because I worked with this car at Ford and it has a 18.5 gallon tank.Either way, if I fill it up, I only get about 270-300 miles on a tank.Seems really low.Im averaging 18-21 mpg daily.It just doesn't add up.Im taking a poll and seeing those with the same car, what are you getting range wise and mpg wise.
I have roughly 4,300 miles on my 3.0T since July. My (actual calculated - not the estimate on the dash) lifetime MPG on this car is 22.17. My two high tanks were 28.86 (404 miles/13.987 Gal on this fill-up) and 27.63 MPG (459 miles/16.606 gal on this fill-up) - with almost 100% high speed interstate driving on a trip. On an 18 gallon tank, I ran much closer to empty on that last tank than I like, but I was on a pretty desolate stretch of highway when the warning went off! On local driving, if I drive like a normal person - my tanks tend to run around 21-22 MPG. If I drive aggressively,, my tanks drop to the 18-19 MPG range.
My prior MKZ was a 2013 MKZh. While I do miss my 41.08 lifetime MPG on that car, driving the 3.0T is a whole lot more fun!

My 2.0t got about the same mpg as this car.
I agree I love the 3.0T.I can't wait to track in a few months.

My commute is about 21 miles each way, mostly highway with some traffic at times.
Coming from a Fusion Hybrid, I was a little scared of the mileage, but I am happy with what I am getting.
