The on board computer varies in accuracy when it comes to the actual fuel economy you are getting.
He told me I wasn't giving the car enough time to warm up because of the extremely short trip. I stopped at the station and put in 13 gallons which looked like it brought it up to full.

Summary The Mercury Montego is a five-passenger family sedan that's roomy and luxurious. The Montego handles well on smooth roads at a moderate pace.
During the summer with moderate highway speeds, I can achieve 30mpg. Montego excels in passive safety as well. The affected vehicles are equipped with either a 2. Well thought out by the engineers. And I am not going to lie and say I have the lightest foot. Side-impact and canopy-style airbags are optional.
Do not race the engine when the oil is cold. The Montego was designed to meet tough future standards for rear-end impacts. I ran this by a couple of mechanic friends that I have, who also agreed with their advice. Mercury says that the Montego has more interior space than competitive vehicles that are up to seven inches longer. Its all-aluminum V6 engine features drive-by-wire electronic throttle control and is complemented by a six-speed automatic transmission that shifts smoothly and always seems to choose the right gear for the driving situation. Severe corrosion can seize the lower intermediate shaft which may cause the upper intermediate shaft to collapse and the steering column lower bearing to separate. If your car was originally sold in a northern state you probably have this.
That said, you can bet I absolutely baby that thing until it gets up to operating temperature. But for about 6 months I took the bus in and the car really got bad mileage during that period. For the rest of the 1980s and much of the 1990s, domestic marques turned their attention to trucks, while Japanese brands took command of the midsize-sedan segment.

Since the price of gas has dropped significantly over the last few weeks, I've taken to driving in to work again. This is bad for the engine and transmission.
A word of warning, your water temperature will heat up before your oil temperature does. Dealers will inspect and replace the upper immediate shaft if necessary free of charge. The coolant pump for the hybrid system may fail resulting in the hybrid electronics overheating. There was only about 4 gallons left I believe yesterday - so I coudl subtract that from the 36 gallons used to make it only 32 gallons. These repairs will be performed free of charge. Consequence: If the shift lever disengages from the transmission, a driver may be unable to shift gear positions and the indicated shift position may not represent the gear position the vehicle is in.
A word of warning, your water temperature will heat up before your oil temperature does. It is really cold here in Indiana right now and I have a 3 years old so I often have to warm the car up for a minute in the morning so that she doesn't freeze on the way to preschool.

We strongly recommend the curtain air bags as they can help reduce the chance of head injuries to your passengers. These repairs will be performed free of charge.
