I was getting my daily Bronco video fix and stumbled across this tid bit and looked up the tank sizes, they are all TBD. Now I am sure this is because it is pre production but worth a talk I think. And I zoomed in and there is no period, it says 1050.

Cool catch!

You gotta think it's just not calibrated correctly yet. Otherwise you have a tank of 70 gallons if you are getting 15mpg.

I know, but I am hoping for a sizeable tank, maybe 20 or so, but then again it wouldn't hurt my feelings for something bigger. Doesn't the JLU have a 20 gallon tank??

Filled up my 2 door Badlands Sasquatch for the first time today at 218 miles on the clock with a calculated 20 miles remaining in the tank. The fill up was surprisingly only 15.5 gallons. I recall hearing that the tank size was smaller on the 2 door than it is on the 4 door models but didn't give that the consideration that it deserves. Would love a larger tank, better fuel economy or both. On this first tank of gas compliments of the dealer the trip computer said that I got only 15 mpg. And that was achieved trying to maximize efficiency. Hopefully, the next tank will be better.

Second tankful in my 2 door 2.7 Badlands with Sasquatch package yielded 17.1 MPG in Normal mode, mixed driving-local and highway. That's using the "winter blend" fuel up here in NH which typically gets 5-10% lower MPG than what the non winter blend produces.
Makes me somewhat hopeful I can get to 18 - 19 MPG ultimately.

I did the calculations, miles drive/gallons purchased not the computer.

While not impressive MPGs; its better than what my 1997 Tahoe 5.7L 2-door gets( 14.5 mpg's).
and the 14 gallons I purchased for the Bronco was substantially less costly than my usual 22-26 gallon fill-ups in my Tahoe
