      Hello everyone, new Explorer owner, '17 Sport, bone stock except for floor mats. Currently have 5000 kms on it and getting 15 L/100kms in the city and around 11 L/100kms on the highway doing 120. I'm currently looking to add a Team RX catch can and possibly a Livernois tune. Ultimately this is the wife's daily so more so looking for fuel economy, comfort and reliability than power. She loves the current amount of power it has.

      On that note, I want to hear a quick blip about what you've done to your Explorer, how many kilometers/miles on it, and what kinda mileage you're getting.

      Thanks guys!

      OP I have a 2015 Sport, and getting around 14 per gallon in town (drive it like I stole it). Still haven't done any long distance driving to get a highway number. Have the weathertech floor mats like yours, and a drop in AEM filter. Doing the Livernois route hopefully this Saturday with downpipes, 3 bar, and 160 thermostat.

      He didn't specify the type of floor mats. :)
      WeatherTech is good for Florida but Husky liners would be better for Saskatchewan due to their better coverage.

      Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
      There are many existing threads on mods that have been done by members. You can find most of them by just scrolling through the threads in this sub forum.
      As for gas mileage; 3.5L Ecoboost Owners - What MPG are you getting? , Explorer Poor Gas Mileage - including Ecoboost
      Mileage figures are variable depending on your driving style, speed, weather and to some degree the type of gas used so it is very difficult to compare. I have found very little difference between running 87 and 91 octane. 91 seems to give a slight boost but certainly not near enough to offset the extra cost. 3.5 Ecoboost - What type of fuel are you running?
      There is a very useful 'Search' feature (upper right) that you should familiarize yourself with to find existing threads/posts on various topics in the different sub forum.

      I actually do have the Husky Liners for the exact reason that they cover better than the Weathertech's do. I've ran Husky in the past 3 vehicles I've had and loved them.
