Anyone have any real life experiences with an AWD Fusion and what type of mileage they are getting?
Our experiences have been very poor. All-city driving averages are about 15 mpg, sometimes as low as 13. We have only taken a few trips during our 16,000 miles and averaged 24 mpg on those. We have a 3.0-liter, V6 AWD 2007 SEL. We love the car except for the mileage, which sucks.

I have a 2010 Fusion sport 3.5 v6 FWD, has about 3000 mile now. I am getting about 21mpg, about 60city and 40freeway time.

the climate and type driving you do makes a big difference.
my 07 fusion awd is averaging about 22 mpg. high around 27, low about 18.
pretty much what the sticker had on it.
have just over 22k on it, so i think it will keep getting better.
hoping for a 23 mpg average overall.

I have a 2008 Merc Milan mwith 47,000 miles on it now, Duratec 3.0 engine, 5 speed automatic, all the bells and whistles.
cruises well at 72 mph, with average of 33.4 mpg both on computer and manual calculation. Stop and go driving drops that to 26.4 mpg, and I have never seen under 20 mpg yet!
Car is smooth, seems quicker with traction control turned off, and in general is one of Ford's truly quality vehicles. Abig change from my 96 continental, which was great, but in the shop a lot for computer glitches.
tried the Hybrid fusion, and found it didn't get any better mileage than this one, and in fact gets almost 3 mpg less at 7o mph.

I thought the automatic in the Fusions/Milans was a six-speed automatic. Am I wrong?

Before the 2010 model debuted, 4-cyl models were 5-speed only, V6 were 6-speed only.
#174 of 214 Can the Hybrid get worse millage then the city or Highway Mileage listed?

I believe the mileage could come down close to the standard 4 cylinder.
If you are not in the city but in a more suburban route you would be stooping at stop sign the accelerating to 45 MPH then stopping again. You would be using the gas engine to accelerate then cruising along going up and down hills. You would not be running on the electric motor at any time.
Does the electric motor continue to push the car even when you are going 65 MPH and the gas engine is running? If that is the case I could see the the millage could always be better then the 4 cylinder mileage.
My concern is with the Hybrid versus the 4 cylinder and with the rebate on the 4 cylinder there is a 5,000 difference in the purchase price. You would need to save a lot of gas to make up the difference.
