3.0 Duratec MPG

Hi all, I have this question posted in the Mazda Tribute forums but I'm hoping an Escape owner might be able to answer this since its the same vehicle. I have a 2005 Tribute with a 3.0 Duratec engine and its an automatic 4 wheel drive. I am averaging around 12 MPG. I have replaced the plugs, oxygen sensors, I run synthetic oil and I don't exactly have a led foot. I have been doing some research with other people that have a 3.0 Duratec and poor gas mileage and I came across someone with similar issues and they replaced the fuel pressure sensor. Does this sound like it could be a possibility? I don't want to throw another $70 away on something I don't need. Other than that the car runs great lots of power nice smooth running engine.

Re: 3.0 Duratec MPG

The two times I had terrible mileage were One, when my IAC got loaded up and needed cleaning. Two, when my EGR exploded, might only be cracked for you if that is an issue. Mine can get 28 hwy for a long trip not going too fast. 22 is pretty average for it. 3.0 4wd wilderness package(read that as larger aggressive off-road tires and tall roof rack) '02.
