I ordered my 14 Limited AWD in March of Last year and got it in August.  I have not reset the main fuel average, just the trip counters and with 17,000 miles on it, and driving 68 mph, I am showing average of 21.2 and between fill-ups, my average is 21.5 to 22.6.

 

I noticed a big improvement at about 9K and then again at 12K.

You'll get slightly better MPG once the weather warms up.  WInter fuel does not do as well as summer, not to mention the warm up for heat thing already discussed.

I've had a 2017 Edge Titanium 2.0L Ecoboost AWD for almost a month now. I bought it used with ~30k miles on it and I've put around 2000 miles on it so far. I do mostly city driving with some highway here and there so my average MPG has not been great...roughly 20 MPG average for the first few weeks I had the car. Granted, I don't always watch my foot, and I did have fun with sport mode a few times.

 

Last weekend we took a trip to the beach so I decided to keep a close eye on the highway MPG to see how that went and I was thoroughly impressed! The total trip was 740 miles round-trip (~90% highway) and my average fuel economy came out to 30.9 MPG. I kept cruise control around 67-73 mph while on the highway, except for a couple of cities we went through that had a good bit of traffic and cruise control wasn't worth it. 

 

Overall, I really like this car, although I wish the AWD model had the auto engine stop, to help with fuel economy in my day-to-day city driving.

Be glad you do not have the auto stop start.  While it may be better on fuel economy, it is quite hard on the engine.

All components have been upgraded to account for the extra stress.

Keep in mind hybrids have been doing this for almost 2 decades with no problems.

How is an engine not running harder on it than running?

 

Cold starts are hard on an engine, but the auto stop start won't let it turn off when it's still cold.

My rental had it. I found it annoying as hell.
