after searching through all the small suvs we settled on this little ecosport. We found a leftover 2018 4x4 titanium and got it for 19,980 out the door price. here is a pic of it picking it up last night.
I am using fuelly to track the mileage and see what other owner are doing as far as mpg. with 5000 miles on my 2018se, my total average is 29.6 with a high of 37 and a low of 21. been experimenting with all three grades of fuel. get higher mpg and more pep on high test, but dont know if it is worth the extra .50 per gallon. there is a wide range of mpg of the ecosports on fuelly, some with engines not available in the us. check it out!
have been tracking mpg on fuelie since we purchased our 2018 ecosport se. after 6000 miles we are averaging about 30.5 mpg overall with a high of 37 and a low of 21. I have also discovered that the indicated mpg on the info screen is super generous. my last fillup, the car indicated 36.1 vs an actual of 32.3. I have tried running it on midgrade and hi-test gas. the car seems peppier with the higher octane with better mpg, but is it really worth the extra 40 to 50 cents per gallon? checking out some other ecosports on fuely I wonder if the owners are using the evic mileage or the actual mileage divided by gallons!
I've got a 2018 EcoSport SES (with AWD and the 2.0 engine), with about 5,500 miles on it. My driving is typically a mix of country roads (50-55 mph), hwy (65-70 mph) and an occasional bit of stop and go traffic. I'm pleasantly surprised with the MPG I'm getting. I track each tank of gas. I've never gotten less than 30.2 mpg. I usually get about 31.0-31.4 mpg. The max I ever did (on a road trip) was 32.7 mpg.
I've read of others getting terrible gas mileage with their EcoSport. I don't understand this, because although I'm no mario andretti speed racer, I also don't drive super timidly, either. I should also mention that I'm usually driving solo, and without any heavy cargo in the vehicle.
I'm thinking that I'm going to try using synthetic oil and premium fuel to see if that makes much of an improvement in the mpg.
