Considering Fusion has a fuel tank of 64.4 l, it has managed to reach a fuel economy of 36.1 km/l. It is a mark that few production cars have ever reached, if ever, even considering the microcars, such as smart fortwo. It is a pity this vehicle is only available in the USA. Many other markets are willing to have a vehicle that is able to reach these numbers, and it does not matter they were achieved by very experienced drivers, with special techniques Ford calls Eco-Driving and which are as follows:
* Slowing down and maintaining even throttle pressure;
* Gradually accelerating and smoothly braking;
* Maintaining a safe distance between vehicles and anticipating traffic conditions;
* Coasting up to red lights and stop signs to avoid fuel waste and brake wear;
* Minimize use of heater and air conditioning to reduce the load on the engine;
* Close windows at high speeds to reduce aerodynamic drag;
* Applying the "Pulse and Glide" technique while maintaining the flow of traffic;
* Minimize excessive engine workload by using the vehicle's kinetic forward motion to climb hills, and use downhill momentum to build speed; and
* Avoiding bumps and potholes that can reduce momentum.
Nice tips for you to follow if you have the patience to do so.
