I'm new to the forum. I bought a 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid 6 days ago.
First of all, I filled the tank for the first time today. It had 22 miles to empty, so I figured it would need about 13.5 gallons, since it's a 14 gallon tank right? The gas pump wouldn't let me put more than 10 gallons in. Is it a 10 gallon tank or 14? After I put the gas in the fuel gauge showed that the tank was full to the brim. It showed 466 miles to empty. Is that average?
Second of all, I drove 111 miles of highway tonight and the car said I was doing 40mpg average, however the fuel gauge went from full to half empty. (I did not reset the mpg average before the 111 mile drive, but it read 43 mpg avg beforehand). Anyway at the beginning of my drive it said 441 to empty, when I arrived it was 293 to empty. That's 148 miles of fuel for a 111 mile drive.
Why can I only put 10 gallons in my car?
Why does it show 40mpg average when it appears that I used 7 gallons (half a tank) for 111 miles?
Am I missing something?
