    My test was out of curiosity over the advantage that the cam phaser is supposed to give in fuel economy. I was on vacation and didn’t care how long it took. Of course, the folks on I-95 had other ideas. They kept gesturing that I was number 1. Now I try to plan routes that keep me below 65 mph. It might take a few minutes longer, but the rural road views are better than the Interstate scenery.

    My '04 Exp. gets almost 18 MPG on highway, even tho the 'average' reading on dash only tells me 11 MPG. Around town aint too shabby either. 5.4 w/Motorcraft syn 10w30 and K&N air filter. No other mods, except I run Seafoam in fuel about once every month & a 1/2.

    I have never seen the mileage average indicator be that far off especially not in the poor fuel economy Direction. People call them a lie o meter but I disagree with that because I find them to be pretty darn accurate.
