Not what do you expect, but "if I get at least [x], I'll be satisfied/happy". Talking calculated from the pump number, not the indicated.

On the 2.7L, I think 18-19 would be satisfied, and 20 would be happy. You? My Mustang got 15mpg, my truck got 16, so 18-19 would be a nice improvement.

As long as it is better then my 07 Tundra I will be happy. I get around 16 mpg. If it gets the same or worse then that beast of a V8 I will be very disappointed. I would really like 18-20.

I'd be happy with 14-15 mpg. Really don't have any expectations. Everything I own right now 12 combined is satisfactory.

My lifted ranger on 33's gets 19-21mpg... Somewhere around there would be decent!

My 2011 F-150 with a 5.0 V8 is getting around 16 mpg in town, last time I went to Sturgis from San Diego in 2014 pulling a 2 bike trailer believe it or not I was getting around 22 mpg, I'll be smiling at whatever MPGs I get in my New Bronco 😀

Hoping for mid/low 20s. Either way it’s gonna be a significant money burner compared to the 40+ I get with the TDI. Our next purchase will be an EV...not the best way to save up for that - but, what are you gonna do?

17 mixed would be about where I hoped, so I guess that is the not unhappy point. (Even with my highway heavy usage, I'm not optimistic); Sasquatch 2.7. if I had gone OBX 2.3... 19 mixed would have been the dividing line.

Wait, people don’t just fill it a bit before it hits “E”? There are other things to track?!
