Gas mileage 05 Ford escape

Asked by Mar 29, 2016 at 06:53 PM about the 2005 Ford Escape XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 05 Ford escape, with 80,000 kms
on it oil changed ever 5,000kms. Recently
just had a new muffler Installed along with
a new cat because the muffler was falling
off. Thought it would fix the problem of my
gas pissing out but didn't happen. I
estimate I get out 15 mpg. Blow threw a
quarter tank of gas in 1-2 hours of driving,
which is a big difference from when I
originally purchased the vehicle. I was
getting a week and a half on a full tank of
gas. I'm going to take it in to a more
respected mechanic shop and see if they
know how to fix it. A guy a canadian tire
said my cat could be plugged. Not a car
guy so any suggestions you guys have
would really help thank!

You better replace the O2 sensors with the new exhaust, I assume that you have had it recently tuned up with all of the filters. But as you can see by the problems below your not the only one having poor mileage. You might try getting the computer reset at a shop.

If you had it tuned up meaning plugs and wires or whatever that could of made it have a misfire in one of the banks or run lean and that could cause you to blow through gas like its nothing too
