The ford fusion Fuel Tank In My 2.0 Ecoboost Engine Does Not Fill All The Way. It Is Documented As A 16.5 Gallon Tank, However Even Running To Empty I Am Only Able To Fill 12-13 Gallons. To Me, It Is Unacceptable To Have A 3-4 Gallon “reserve”. I Am Not Sure If It’s The Tank Itself, Or If It’s Faulty Hardware Causing Vapor To Be Trapped And The System Thinking It’s Full When It Is In Fact Not. This May Not Be A Safety Issue, But Is An Issue If You Are Thinking You Have More Gas Than You Actually Do. *tr

I’ve Been Having An Issue With My Gas Tank Since I’ve Owned The Car Since Oct 2012. When I Fill Up, The Car Sometimes Fills All The Way On The Gauge, Sometimes It Doesn’t. If It Does It Drops From Full To Half A Quarter By 10-20 Miles. Also, Ive Never Been Able To Fill Up To Around 16 Gallons. The Car Is Supposed To Have A 16.5 Gallon Fuel Tank. I Run The Car To Approx 12 Miles Left, Till The Warning Light Comes On And I Can Only Get Roughly 12 Gallons In The Tank. Either The Tank That Was Installed Is Wrong Or The Computer Gauge Is Off. I’m Only Able To Drive About 315 On A “full” Tank. That Is Not Right For A Car That’s Supposed To Be A 27-37mpg Car. Which I Only Get About 24-26mpg Since I’ve Owned The Car. I Do A Mix Of Highway And City Driving, Mostly Highway Averaging 45mph Driving. I’ve Told Brien ford In Everett Of This Issue But They Wont Look At It Since It Hasn’t Been Recognized By ford. There’s A Really Big Response To This Issue On Many Forums. I Follow The Most Popular For fusions At Http://www.fordfusionforum.com/topic/8957-2013-fusion-fuel-tank-filling-issues/. The Dealer Told Me I Would Have To Pay To Have Them Research It When Is A Horrible Thing To Do, When I Know There’s An Issue. When I’m Only Able To Get About 12 Gallons In The Tank. The fusion Hybrid Se Has A 13.5 Gallon Tank, I Think The Tanks Got Installed Incorrectly, And Me Along With Many Others Got The Hybrid Tank Instead Of The Normal 16.5 Gallon Tank. *tr

When Filling Fuel Tank, The Pump “kicked Off” Prior To A Full Tank As Displayed By Digital Fuel Gauge (just Under Full). I Drove 25 Miles And Fuel Gauge Then Showed Between Full And 3/4 Tank. There Seems To Be An Inaccuracy With The Calibration Of The Gauge And/or Amount Of Fuel That Can Be Put Into Tank, With Respect To Tank Capacity, Before Pump “kick Off”. *tr

1. Lane Keeping Departure System Presents A Danger To Cyclists & Pedestrians. Now That I Am Aware, I Turn The System Off; However, The Steering Wheel Puts Up A Good Fight When I Tried To Provide The Cyclists Room–an Unnecessary Issue That Could Of Caused Serious Bodily Harm Or Death. 2. The Vehicle Does Not Get The Mpg As Promised On The Sticker: A Great Deal Of Unnecessary Money Was Lost. 3. The Electrical A/c Unit No Longer Generates Cold Air, But The Fan Still Runs.

2013 ford fusion Se 2.0lt Ecoboost Engine – Bought March 2014 About 33,000 Miles. My Issues Started Around The End Of May 2014. 1. When Coming To An Idle My Car Always Acts Like It Is Going To Stall. It Idles Really Hard And The Rpms Always Jump Real Low. There Are Never Any Warning Lights/messages That Appear. 2. Extremely Poor Gas Mileage – This Is A 4 Cylinder And An Ecoboost That Should Be Getting A Hell Of A Lot Better Gas Mileage – City And Highway! My 2012 fusion V6 Had Wayyyy Better Mpg. I Have Read In Forums About Both Of These 2 Issues And Found Related Problems. ford Wanted $180.00 Just To ‘look’ At My Driveability. Just To Plug My Car Computer Into Their Scanner. There Are No Recalls On This For My Specific Car Even Though I Am Finding A Lot Of The Same Issues As Some Recalls On Other Model fusions. I Should Not Have To Pay For This To Be Fixed, This Is Fault Of ford. 3. My A/c System Stopped Blowing Cold Air At 36,816 Miles!!! Still No Warnings Active And ford Wants $120.00 Just To ‘look’ At It – And Charge Me More To Fix Any Issues It Has. While Reading Some Forums I Have Noticed Several Recalls/same Issues For This And Some Say That The A/c Pipe Is Faulty And Leaks. But My Specific Car Does Not Have Those Recalls So ford Will Not Fix Issue. And Again, I Should Not Have To Pay For Faulty Parts! Disgusted!!!!! Please Correct The Recalls So I Can Drive Safely.
