Hi: JC... Glad to hear you made a safe trip out& back. Yes my Canadian mpg is about 19.5 and my U.S. mpg 16.5. I seem to get much worse with E85.
Our trip to Ky.& Tenn. the mileage was in the 13.5- 14.5 range,4th gear through the hills and mountains(Much smaller than the Rockies tho). Just when we got back to flatter ground and I might have used OD. the Wind howeled and whistled so bad it blew one of my 4X4 cedar jack blocks with a piece of plank screwed on, out of the truck bed and the trailer just hopped over it. I stopped on the side of I75 to secure the rest of the load and a Ohio St. Trooper stopped to make sure we were all right. His weather report was for stronger winds further north and on the 401 in Ontario we had brownouts and drifting dirt on the highway. The 5.0 tracked like a trooper through it all!!!
What are your impressions of the 5.0 and Escape? I know Reace& Tammy would treat you well.
How did the trailer tag finally turn out? Alf
