1999 Ford Taurus

GAS V6

Property of Rico Added Sep 2011 Location:

'99 Ford Taurus SE

- 6-seater family sedan

- 3.0L V6

- 4-speed automatic transmission

- 145hp @ 5250 RPM

- 170lb/ft @ 3250 RPM

- Original EPA: 20 city/28 highway/23 combined

- Revised EPA: 17 city/26 highway/20 combined

My driving style:

- Keep revs at 2000 or lower while accelerating

- Heavy use of coasting (this car will coast forever)

- Tires at manufacturer recommended specs (35 psi)

- I define "highway" as driving at a consistent 55 mph or higher, so it's usually only when I'm driving on U.S. Routes or Interstates. However, I'm in a slightly more rural area, so some of my driving may be considered "highway" to others.

- I will keep the cruise control locked at 65 mph on the interstate whenever possible

2012 Update:

- I'll be setting my cruising speeds at 60 on highways to see how it affects my fuel economy
