I had 2 different Ford Fusion 2.0T EcoBoosts, neither of which (even when driven EXTREMELY gingerly) could come close to their advertised economy - my best tank was 26.2mpg, vs the 33mpg hwy I was meant to get.
4 other turbos I drove on the same route (Subaru WRX, Cadillac ATS 2.0T, Volkswagen Jetta 1.8T, Mercedes C250 1.8T) were able to meet or exceed their EPA numbers. So, something's fishy about how Ford is rating these, indicating they're calibrating their powertrains JUST to get nice EPA numbers, or perhaps only to get nice EPA hwy numbers at 55mph only.
am a System & Cloud Platform Engineer and team lead, having worked
as a hands-on engineer, team lead and as a project manager for multiple
large-scale websites. My recent focus has been on large-scale
content-driven websites based on Adobe CQ (AEM), working to implement
infrastructure automation, continuous delivery pipelines, and support
& monitoring systems to back it up.
I started my career in technology in 1994, and have worked hands-on in virtually every facet of website delivery, as a designer, UX architect, developer, system architect/administrator, team lead and as a product director overseeing the full technology lifecycle.
I have a passion for analytics and tools to extract & visualize actionable insights out of machine data. It started for me when I was a support & implementation engineer for Webtrends, and has continued through modern tools like Splunk and New Relic. I feel that with the right such tools, developers, system engineers, and business folks can rapidly get on the same page.
