    Edge ST MPG

    If you are answering my post, I have always reset the computer at each fill up. I am getting the total average from Fuelly.

    Edge ST MPG

    3700 miles driven and I have averaged 22.5 mpg with a best of 23.9. I just recently dropped in an aFe dry air filter and my computer is showing higher mpg, though we shall see at the next fill up. This is all on a mix of city/highway driving. Got a trip coming up soon and will see what we do with straight hwy on several tanks. The computer is still optimistic and I am notating both readings and plan to average out and then do the change as has been indicated on the AFE portion of the computer. I use Fuelly, but would like to know that what shows on the car is correct, more than it is now. I can not imagine actually getting 32mpg nor going 60 mph, so doubt I will ever see that!
  3. Ok, so take the average on both sides, the Fuelly and the LOM, correct? Thanks again for posting this.
  4. Sorry, was reading the other post and thought it was the author of the way to do it. Worth a try, can always set it back to what they had it on. So if I understand correctly, I should compare the next fill up and mpg from it and then do the math with the LOM....glad you explained what that was, LOL

    Edge ST MPG

    I just read your other post on resetting it and asked if it now works for you, as your last statement suggested not even worth doing. I appreciate your help. Like getting something positive out of this mpg post!
  6. So have you got it worked out now for the Edge ST? Thanks,

    Flat tire with 1900 miles on my ST

    Mine looks like this now! And with the added security of the compressor and goo. Not cheap, had to order a new rim and tire, but have piece of mind now!

    Found 2 others that were Flex, exactly the same as this one with the 4 holes. Also a D and not an R tire. A Flex wheel won’t work and I don’t want to take the chance !

    I don't trust this one, looks like a Flex spare, which will not fit an Edge. I found a couple more like this.

    Edge ST MPG

    I am also using Fuelly since I got my ST and now have about 2800 miles and averaging 22.3mpg in combination city/hwy driving. Best mpg was 23.9. This has all been on regular gas. My last daily driver was a Fusion Hybrid that averaged 47mpg over 40K miles, so I am still in withdrawal pains from doubling my time at the gas pumps! I guess I must be a lot easier on the gas pedal than most. Its a peppy SUV and we are enjoying it. Looking forward to a road trip to see how she does.

    Flat tire with 1900 miles on my ST

    I have ordered a wheel from my dealer, will have it in about a week. Next hurdle was getting the actual tire. Seems only place to get one is online from Maxxis direct. I am waiting for a couple of places to get back with me to see if they can find one, but will probably buy online. Not a cheap way to go, but had no luck at all with anywhere on the internet or with local junkyards. Just an update, looking forward to having one in the back and putting this all behind me, so to speak! Thanks for all the input and for this forum.

    Makes sense though I would rather be moving forward driving more carefully to get to a tire store than sitting on the side of the road going nowhere. Just like everything, you have choices in life. Thanks for your input.

    Flat tire with 1900 miles on my ST

    Well its not the same size, 29" diameter vs. 26.5 for the donut, but apparently is close enough and passes Ford standards to work.

    I feel I got the answer thru here and then seeing the temporary spare in the Edge Sport. The Edge ST has a more developed AWD system that is made to disconnect from AWD to FWD that the Sport did not have. So moving forward at a slow pace, hoping to hear from Ford Performance within this week. For some reason putting a Summer Performance tire on changes the way Ford deals with it. Hoping to find out why from them.

    My next move! I got a friend who works at a body shop and can enter what he is looking for there. Going to get him to do that for me. Thanks.

    Flat tire with 1900 miles on my ST

    I agree, now just have to find a used one. Found one on Ebay, but weird rim with only 4 holes in it instead of all the ones around the rim that I have seen and like the one in this post photo above.

    New Edge ST owner

    Hello, I have a Ruby red ST with the 401A and brake package. Other cars are a 15 Corvette Stingray, 70 resto mod split bumper Camaro that's for sale, a 10 Ranger Ext. cab 4x4 Sport w/4.0, and a street legal golf cart. Wondering the age of Edge ST owners. I am 67 going on about 23...well in mind, my body is going on about 82 or so!

    Flat tire with 1900 miles on my ST

    Ok, just to let all know, I checked a 16 Edge Sport w/21" wheels and measured my 21" wheel and tire and one on the Sport. Both are approximately 29" tall. The Sport had an 18" spare with the temp tire size stated above, T155/70R18. I measured and found its 26 1/2" tall. Like has been said above, if Ford is putting it in as a spare, it must be fine to use. Thanks again.

    Flat tire with 1900 miles on my ST

    I was wondering if being in Canada had anything to do with it. Still bothers me to drive any distance with the spare being a smaller size. If I get somewhere and have a flat that can't be repaired, will be hard to find a 21" PZero to replace it with. Going to the driving school in Utah and will be on an definite arrival time, so sitting somewhere waiting on a tire won't work! I do have an email into the Ford Performance group that are going to address the issue. This site has been very helpful, thanks members.

    Did yours come with the air compressor and tire repair goo also? Wondering why some came with this spare and some without. Do you have the summer performance tires or the all weather tires? Mine has the Pirelli PZeros.

    Thanks, this is still scary to me to use a temp spare, as this is the warning in the manual, though I guess if you read it that they provided the spare in the size listed above, you are fine? Here is what it says - Do not use a spare tire of a different size other than the tire provided. If the mini-spare tire is installed, the AWD system may disable automatically and enter front-wheel drive only mode to protect driveline components. A warning in the information display appears, indicating that the system is in front-wheel drive only mode.See Information Messages. If there is a warning message in the information display from using the spare tire, this indicator should turn off after reinstalling the repaired or replaced normal road tire and cycling the ignition off and on. We recommend that you reinstall the repaired or replaced road tire as soon as possible. Major dissimilar tire sizes between the front and rear axles could cause the AWD system to stop functioning and default to front-wheel drive or damage the AWD system.

    So u can run the smaller tire with the AWD? I am new at this, the Ford parts guy told me I would damage the AWD. Thanks

    What size tire is your spare? And is it a 21” donut wheel? I have been told that you can’t use a smaller wheel due to the AWD. Thanks
