New Express Owner

Bought mine 2 weeks ago, 270 miles, so far.
nice to drive, and easy on gas.
It will be used as personal transportation, and a few long trips,
this year. It`s always nice to have extra room, and a place to
take a nap.
My main concern is the small tires. I would like a larger size.
possibly a 205/65/15. will wait and see, what experience other
owners have.

Welcome to the forum.

How have you found gas mileage to be so far with the mileage you have put on?

It seems to be around 24mpg, have not watched it that close.
The temperature has been in the teens, that may keep the mpg down,
will check it closer, after a few fillups.

that temperature will indeed factor in to lower than average MPG's
however i know that letting the engine warm up to where it should be is best for MPG's and the engine in general as everything runs as smooth as it should.

are you filling up with what recommended or higher octane?

Good to know.
Some guys I know fill up with premium, but I doubt that does anything extra for an engine that doesn't require it.
