I am taking my new FFH on a failry long highway trip next week.
The first 275 miles will be on fairly flat 65 - 70 mph interstate (95 from Fayetteville, NC to Fredricksberg, MD) then about 50 on secondary highways to another 50 on interstates 66 and 81. Going to stop in Winchester VA.
As an option, I could go 200 miles on 95, 100 on interstate 64 and 92 on interstate 81. That might take longer, but would I benefit from it?
After that, I will be in the mountains of MD, VA and PA up to near State College.
I have made this trip many times in my Explorer Sport Trac and got about 20 MPG, getting 22 on the highways and 18 on the mountain roads.
Any helpful hints on highway driving? So far, I'm am able to average 40.6 on my commute and running around town, but have not had any time on highway driving.
I use the Empower screen, have ECO cruise turned on, disabled EV+ and try to use the 2-bar method of accelerating as much as possible.
Any guess on my MPG's for this trip?
