2006 Mercury Milan Q&A
2006 Mercury Milan Question: Why has the MPG fallen from 20 to 17 mpg?
I bought my 2006 Mercury Milan V-6 Premier with less than 25,000 on it. Rode like a dream. Recently, the vehicle miles per gallon has been falling. I have been using the same gasoline (regular unleaded) since I purchased the vehicle in September 2009. The average MPG when I bought it was 27 mpg. Today the average is 20 mpg. As bad if not worse than my 1993 Nissan Maxima, also V-6. What could be causing this problem? The gasoline in my area contains 10% ethanol year round. Thanks. - Visitor
Possibly its in need of a tune up start with a new air filter and the book shows plug replacement at 90,000 miles - hemicuda
The problem could be the way you are handling the car as well. 20mpg sounds low to me, and 17mpg is abysmal. In the winter, I get about 26mpg, and in the summer I get 31mpg with my 2006 Milan Premier. I live in MN and our roads aren't that great, so I assume people should get at least as good of mileage as I do. - Visitor
Have you found out why your mercury mpg was decreasing? I recently purchased a Milan 07 V6 premier and it has been doing the same thing to me. If you can hop it would be very appreciated THANKS - Lundont
