    yup... my brother's XP does 8 to 10 km/L whenever he takes it on out of town trips. Of course it means its in the garage most of the time as well.

    As for driving an XP, it is a nice vehicle to drive (cost of fuel not withstanding). A simple nudge of the accelerator and the engine responds. The suspension is smooth over highways and rough roads. Just do not attempt high speed corners, these vehicles are meant for straight open roads. The XP can give somewhat decent fuel consumption figures when driven on mostly highway and very little traffic. A trip from Manila to Baguio can be done with 8 to 10 km/L and that's with a full load of people and bags.

    few reasons, I was so happy, at nabenta E150 namin, driver ka na nga, maingay pa anak mo + anak pa nila, hindi ka makapag sounds ng malakas at may baby na sakay, bus driver ang tingin sa iyo, at mentality mo bus driver na rin...
    I agree...

    roamy for 8 adults

    with that info: 800km / 140 liter gives about 5.7 km/L but that for provincial trip.. do u have figure (kahit estimate) for city driving?

    I read somewhere that Ford will put a 4L Duratorq (Turbo Diesel) engine on the Expe. You might wanna wait for that (esp now that Ford is bringing more of their diesels). Ford diesel seems good, it's fast (i've driven the new Everest) and not as noisy as one would expect from a diesel engine.

    thats what my frends tell me.. but for everyday (4days a week including weekend) driving im not sure if the E150 will be better on the long run vs. XP 2007.. advice greatly appreciated.. thanks.

    expedition = 3.5-4 km/liter city driving

    out of town on hi-ways is around 8-10.

    so in the end, it really depends on how you use the vehicle.
