    Be Safe out there

    For most of my trip the 2020 Hybrid was getting 42mpg Going into Utah from Wyoming I hit snow, and it dropped to 25mpg so I now know that snow and cold is not good for a hybrid. 😎 I have not tallied the miles, but I spent about $160 for gas. most places were 1.70, where it's close to 3bucks here, and going up...

    Today's service loaner

    I was looking at the dark red (Magma Red) , saw it the other day and had 2nd thoughts, but I went with the Rhapsody Blue (Dark Blue) ... well , it was the color they had at the time.. 😎 Got it with the Capuchino interior If I could afford it, I would have both... 😎 No regrets, well.. wish they had the better product, so I could have the massage seats and better sound... and maybe the pano roof. 😎

    The information I put out is from personal experience. Whether there is a report out there that says otherwise does not matter to me in that case. This is why I put the better quality gas in my car (76/Union usually, sometimes Mobil or Shell) and will not put ARCO/USA in because it's not as good of gas IMHO. On my trip I found that the gas I had to put in was because my 'usual' was not around when I needed gas. I don't know where these places buy the gas, but PILOT was not as good as LOVES. The closest to 76 was Conoco (same company) When I put the medium from Pilot in my car ran better and got better mileage. Again, personal experience. Experts are like navels... 😎 The one thing that I was aware of that I did not know would make THAT much difference was that a Hybrid gets poor gas mileage in cold weather, I was getting 25 when it was snowing.... (my car said it was 33 at the time, and the elevation was about 8k... could have been the snow, could have been the altitude, I was using cruise control so it's the same driving method. If I'm ever in that same situation, I will see if the next level up of gas helps with that... I'm going to say it won't, but then I have been, and could be wrong.

    yes 87, but one octane less should not 'hurt' it... 😎 Calif is 87, the other states I traveled through were 88 You totally bypassed the meaning and content of my statement...

    Congrats... Things that you mention like the massage seats go with the Luxury package, but I thought that it also ment that you got the panoramic sunroof... but it does not look like you got it with that... Oh well... like you said... here is a hint I just figured out.... By putting in Regular gas (86 octane) I was averaging about 38mpg, but now I'm putting in the next level up (89 octane) and seeing 43-48mpg depending on driving (so far) Mine is the 2020 MKZ-H just in the dark blue and just the elements package) Maybe other can chime in on this for a Hybrid
  6. If your car is still under any warranty then it's not covered if you do the S2 to S3 upgrade. By now it would be rare anyway. The upgrade is not that hard, the hardest thing is finding the needed hardware (unless you pay up the nose for 4Dtech to do it. (I think they charge $1400 and up)) Once you have the needed hardware (it should cost about $400 to $600 depending (or even less if you find a great deal)...you can do it, or have someone (like a car audio shop) do it for about $100 (that is what I paid) and then the $40-$60 for the programing.... it is worth it in the long run... I did it to my 2013FFH to have Sync 3 with nav (from the S2 w/nav), and then my 2018FFH to have Nav (it already had S3)... both times it was cheeper to upgrade than buy it with... and now of course the MKZ-H has it built in.

    Map Updates for a 2020?

    Like I said, I wasn't expecting an update, but I thought it wierd that it said >2010 did not qualify for updates.... I will call at some point. 😎

    Map Updates for a 2020?

    From the owner.lincoln.com site, it links me to https://owner.lincoln.com/support/how-tos/sync/sync-with-mylincoln-touch/navigation/how-to-update-navigation-system-map.html Then there is this link https://syncnavigation.com/lincoln/home and I enter the 2 bits of info.... and get the sorry message...
  9. I'm not expecting any updates right now, but I find it odd that the lincoln web site that points me to the updates page tells me that anything Greater than 2010 can not get updates... uh.. really?

    Memory Seats

    I change it from time to time.... but it's usually in the same place... #2 is set very low and back... with the steering up... this way I can eat in my car when needed... When I had my FFH's I hated not having memory when the dealer should change it when I got the OIL change. I'd have to re-set it up... now I don't have to. 😎 I even have the buttons and modul for under the seat for the mod I was going to do... but never got to it, I think I still needed the wiring... now I don't ahve to deal with it... 😎

    http://www.2gfusions.net/showthread.php?tid=3881 That link is now kinda old, but has a lot of info and Dan is worth the $$$. He has helped me several times, worth his fee for the programing.
