    95 Octane & Fuel Economy

    Ok, so of the first topup I got 9.1/L on the first two days which were mostly highway and then it came down to 8.6/L due to moderate city traffic and then dropped to 8.4/L overall with 550kms done and 60km till empty. With the 95 I averaged 7.8/L (very heavy foot) to 8.2/L which means there not a big difference in mileage. BUT the driving experience has totally changed. The pick-up is much better, there's minimum lag in quick acceleration (quick overtakes), and a little less engine noise. I love the driving experience with the 98, so I'm trying a second re-fill which so far on day 2 is giving me the same reading. Watch this space...

    What's Hanging?

    How can an accessory hanging from a mirror be illegal?

    What's Hanging?

    So what's hanging from your rear view mirror? Let's see some photos As you can see I'm a Marvel fan and the kids love it!!
  4. I went for the base model (SE) because under the hood they are all the same - except the sport and FWD versions. I am more interested in the performance of the vehicle than the toys it comes with. I would have loved to have the sony system - which was my only regret. But other than that the Edge is a fun car to drive. The vista roof is beautiful in winter but with the summer right now reaching +50ºc .....I-don't-think-so. At the end of the day my choice for a vehicle comes down to (1) Performance/Reliability/Brand (2) Safety - (4-Star) (3) Looks (4) Toys/Accessories. Oh, and I love the fact that you can insert a key and hear it start (I'm old school). Those push-start buttons are so gay (kidding).

    95 Octane & Fuel Economy

    Hi omar302, that's useful info on the octane comparison. Thanks. I drive a 3.5 AWD.
  6. 95 Octane & Fuel Economy My Ford service provider (Dubai-UAE) said that there is an additive in the 95 octane (recently added) that's affecting the fuel economy. This answered why I was getting between 7.8 - 8.3 km/L (18.3 - 19.5 mpg) combined, which means around 500-550km on a tank (depending on how heavy my foot is). So the service provider advised I change to 98 octane - which I did this morning which gave me at the end of today 8.9 km/L (20.9 mpg) combined. Which means technically I should get 600-647km to the tank (depending on how heavy my foot is). What fuel do you use and what's your economy rate?
  7. It's called motionflow… maybe watch the youtube video?
