Are you getting a brand new motor or a remanufactured one? As far as engines go today they don't have them labeled as vehicle specific anymore like this one is for a pickup and this one for an SUV etc. So the motor you will fit correctly and perform properly if installed correctly, however you should not expect to get as good of MPG with your replacement at first, it will take some time and miles to break it in but your MPG should return.

If your friends are getting worse mileage than you it's because they don't drive like you do. I don't mean to be a jerk BUT - if you're concerned about fuel mileage, why drive a full-sized 4x4 SUV? My '87 F-250 4x4 gets 9 mpg. It's just a fact of life for a Truck. Now my little Mazda el-cheapo car gets 30 city!

It will be a new motor and I was getting around 13 miles per gallon a friend with an 08 only gets around 8 miles per gallon which is about a thirty dollar difference I'm OK with the gas price it is my husband who keeps trying to come up with exuces not to fix it and a mechanic told him it would run about the same once the motor had time to break in but he didn't think that is right he says it would be anew motor so it would get gas milage like the newer expeditions

Your frend, most likely has a towing package on it, those tend to be geared lower than a stock unit, I had. Towing package on my Ford and got 9 MPG but a co worker he the same year and engine but no towing package and he got 14 MPG. So that most likely is the difference.
