The EPA’s MPG specs for vehicles are often good guidelines when you’re looking for a fuel-efficient car or Ford truck. However, these numbers don’t always reflect the actual MPG a driver will enjoy, due to several driving factors. Although EPA estimates offer some idea of a Ford vehicle’s potential fuel economy, the testing standards fail to replicate some realities of driving that can affect fuel efficiency, from carrying excess cargo to under-inflating tires. This infographic from our Houston area Ford dealer explains the problems with EPA estimates and shows how to increase your Ford’s fuel efficiency. With today’s high gas prices, maximizing MPG has never been more important. Help everyone you know save money at the pump by sharing this important information.
