    Edge ST MPG

    What are you guys/gals getting for MPG? Mine is pretty much 16.4 on the computer and I reset it when I got it, has 830 miles on it and got it with 200. 16.8 from new according to the Trip 1 gauge. I do remote start it almost daily and let it run a few minutes because I live in the frozen tundra of Upstate NY, Watertown. But still I expected a tad better. I am not hammering on it but running it nice then a few times with some gusto during breakin. I even had the cruise set at 75 on the highways and on a flat was the only time the instant hit over 20 and that was not much over 20, maybe 22-23ish. Most of the time it was at 20 or under on a relatively mild road, mostly flat with slight up and downs. Engine was fully warmed up. I know winter gas drops it a hair but my 1998 Jeep GV V-8 seemed to get better mileage and I beat on that. Is it just because low miles, I do mostly mixed driving some 65 and some 40 and normally only 10 minutes at a time since that is what it takes to get to work. I just expected closer to the city rating of 19. My Focus ST that I had two pedal modes, floored and idle, got 23 MPG and that was driven the same and I drove it like I was running from the cops. Thanks. If it has been covered I am sorry, I only checked for posts in here.

    clicking, tapping noise

    Yeah that does not sound normal. When rev'ed the fuel pump noise normally is drowned out by standard engine rev'ing sounds. Although I wish they still put the padded engine covers on these as they seem to mute the sounds of the fuel pump. My Focus ST sounded nothing like your engine does, it did have a cover but even with it removed it did not sound like that. My ST V-6TT does not even sound like that, but it does have a cover on it and hood pad as well. My DI HPFP noises go away pretty much as the engine warms up, due to the cover and hood pad muting them enough. My Dad has an Escape with the 2.0T and mom has a MKC with the 2.3T and neither sound like your motor.

    For Those that have Tuned The Edge ST

    I ended with 15.2mpg according to the computer for that tank. I did not use Fuely as I gave up on chasing any kind of good numbers and just drive it like I am running from a cop. But even though I live out of town I do not drive nicely at all even in town so it is all good. That number is just low because I just got the updated tune and just started using 93 again, plus it is winter gas as well. I had been running the 87-89 because I am kind of unemployed right now so I wanted to save the 8 bucks a week on the fill-up but that got boring. Lol!

    After the latest revision I am getting around 14.1mpg. Lol What can I say I love to floor it and the new found power.

    No Ford Performance Parts for ST ?

    It is because for some reason they made a separate ST subforum instead of just lumping it into that sub. So no one with an ST looks in there. I mean I do but most probably ignore that one. The ST sub is strange to me since the is not a Sport subforum. I know most stuff most likely fits the ST that was on the Sport but maybe others do not know this.

    I know on the FoST you had to gap them with a slightly smaller gap than factory spec and it was recommended that you run a step colder plug with a tune. .027 instead of .032 if I recall.

    Livernois ST Tune

    Livernois has released v3 of the tune and then an update to v3. I have both but it I need to see how dry the road is this morning to do at least a 0-60 then switch to the newer version I got last night and see if there is any difference. I got v3 two days ago but it was snowing and my Dragy was dead. It did have more boost in the lower gear and seemed to pull better but it also was 22F out at the time.

    For Those that have Tuned The Edge ST

    I don't drive normal. My gas mileage sucked before the tune and is a hair better with the tune. Vehicle computer says my average for the last 13,000 miles is 18.1mpg. The Fuely Application, when I was using it, said my mileage was closer to 16.9mpg. I floor it a lot and get up to speed as quick as this beast can get there. I also remote start the vehicle in the winter a lot so that drops it and I live in the Northern half of the US where we get 'Winter' Gas for 6 months of the year, which lessens mileage. Before the tune I was clocking 17 on the car computer and 15.9 on the Fuely App.

    Misfire Cylinder 1

    On my FoST I had that happen and it was the plugs, the gap had widened way out of spec so it would miss. Of course it could also be a coil pack going bad as well but the plugs is where I would start.

    Disappointed with Livernois tuner for 2.0L...

    When you look at the programmer you should have three tunes, an 87-89, 91, and 93 tune. At least that is what I ended up getting for my ST. Unless you request something else like a Towing tune that is what you get.

    2020 Edge not Available?

    Wait what? I thought all 2019 Edges had the rear camera washer. Mine does.

    Disappointed with Livernois tuner for 2.0L...

    I would call them and see what is up. That is far to long. I had to call them on my first tune because they seemed to have 'forgot' about it.

    Disappointed with Livernois tuner for 2.0L...

    Well not many people tune their ST's, at least as of right now, and there are most likely a lot less of them out there compared to of course other vehicles. I am sure it is not as important and also the same reason COBB does not care enough to make their AccessPort work with them or supply the canned tunes they do for other Ford's. There just is most likely not a whole lot of money in Edge ST tunes.

    Disappointed with Livernois tuner for 2.0L...

    Well this is for a 2.0 so who knows how many of the owners look for tunes on these models. My last update which had a new code took 3 days if I recall but I sent that in on a Friday, the 3 days did not count the weekend either. I am not sure what year he has though, I did not see him specify the year. I am sure he will get it though eventually.

    Misfire Cylinder 1

    If it has been tuned for a lot of those 50,000 miles than I would absolutely check the plugs. My Focus ST even with the stock tune would need to have the Gap on the plugs checked every 10,000 miles because the Gap would open up on two plugs and cause a slight miss. Does not hurt to check them and check the Gap on them. I plan on pulling mine on the ST around 15,000, I have 13,000 on it now and have run the LMS 93 tune for the last 10,000.

    Disappointed with Livernois tuner for 2.0L...

    It takes a minute or two to customize the tune for the specific vehicle Strategy Code. If it is a code they have seen before then it is quicker than if it is a new code. When I got my last TSB performed it changed mine so the old tunes did not work any longer and I needed them updated. I sent them the information needed and within 2 days I got the new tune. This is no different than with any other tuners, you send them the information that they require and they make the tune for you. The Livernois tunes are canned but they still do need to be tweaked for different codes.

    Ford Performance sill plate

    Interesting. Better pop the hood and make sure they did not forget to put the right engine in as well! Lol! Probably just a sill plate in the wrong pile on the line and got put on instead. Probably a robot doing it.

    Did the other 2 vehicles have an engine cover with the foam as well as the foam hood pad? Because that does make a difference. When I would remove the engine cover on my Focus ST it was noticeably louder, but put the cover back on and close the hood and it was quieter but still could be head when warming up and high idle. My Edge ST is the same was and it has both the cover and the hood pad but it quiets down after the engine revs come down. On a side not why does this bother so many people? Are you all idling your engines in the cold and standing next to them listening? Just curious. It is perfectly normal.

    They no longer put them on at the factory to save money and have more profit. As for the noise it is the nature of the beast with a Direct Injection engine. High pressure fuel injectors are loud. My 2.7TT sounds like a diesel on cold start, even louder than my previous Focus ST 2.0T engine. My mothers Lincoln MKC 2.3T does the same thing and so does my dad's Escape 2.0T. Cold start is the loudest. The MKC is a little quieter due to the engine cover and hood pad. My Edge ST came with a hood pad because it is an earlier build before they stopped installing them, but it is still loud.

    Poor trans shifting theory investigation

    Nice. I would like to point out that 2nd is the useless gear and not 3rd. If you are flooring it from a stop you do not need 2nd since it only blips into it for a split second before going to 3rd where it continues to accelerate. So if you kept 2nd and ditched the 3rd gear ratio and went into 4th then the vehicle would be slower to 60 not quicker. Toss 2nd out and go into 3rd, since that is the same gear ratios as the Sport, and you would gain a split second to 60 due to the lack of the useless shift.

    Poor trans shifting theory investigation

    I actually never got paperwork for that one TSB for some reason so I do not know what the number was, but yes I complained about excessive sloshing almost clunk like noises when the tank was full and turning a corner at city street speeds. I now no longer have that sound when the tank is full or anytime.

    2016 edge tune

    I will say they should have just done what you said but tacked a 7th gear on the trans to increase fuel economy on the highway. But yeah if they could not do that then use the 6 speed until they worked the bugs out of the 8 speed. And geared the 8 speed better, it is just lazy to squeeze a gear in between two existing ones and tack one on the end. Should have changed the gears for better performance.

    ST sightings in the wild

    I seen very few Edge ST or Edge Sports anywhere near me. I see more Raptors to be honest. I have also seen more Explorer ST's and Explorer Sports. Which is strange since the dealer I got mine from a year ago had 4 of them on the lot and another dealer close to me had 3. I have seen 1 Edge Sport and maybe 2 Edge ST's in the last year, and one of those was a Canadian one.

    2016 edge tune

    You have a Sport, their tunes have a tad more power than the ST because LMS knows what the Sport trans can take. They did not do the ST tune the same and its gains are lower in comparison, even with the same motor. The seem to want to not be responsible for blowing up the 8 speed. They did a few revisions and had many years with the Sport and the 6 speed trans. And the ST has that new gear between the Sports 1st and 2nd that screws shit up because when flooring it is not really needed since it should be skipped at that point and is not. Ford screwed up this whole new trans by basically keeping all the gears the same as the 6 speed but squeezing a new one in as 2nd and bumping 2nd to 3rd and tacking one on the end. Just does not make much since, should have re-geared it all not just plop a gear in and use the exact same rest of them. Sure it is great for in town smoothness but this is supposed to be a 'Sporty' vehicle. I came from a Focus ST which was hard not to spin if you liked to drive, and that was stock. Tune it and wow.

    2016 edge tune

    Yeah I am going with he most likely has AWD. My ST will spin the fronts a little but not enough for wheel hop to occur before it shifts the power to the rear as well as the fronts. Here is mine from when I first got the tune.
