Other than using more AC, does higher temperatures mean less MPG? Recently it has been pretty hot and my mileage has gone down 2-3 MPG. Normally, winter gas will yield lower MPG but I wasn't sure about when it's over 105 degrees.
Plus when it's too hot we all get a tad more irritable and maybe more likely to be punching the pedal a little harder.
Just over 500 miles so far so I don't have a real great feel for what kind of mpgs I'm getting overall but I was pretty pleased to see my highway mpg is almost dead even with what my 2009 V6 used to get.
Go, Ford, go.

If you love your dog, get a microchip, they really work! My lost dog was back home in just under 24 hours thanks to the good citizens who called the county and the microchip that told animal control exactly where he lived.
in theory when its cold more gas would be needed because the air is denser. so i would think that the mpg will go down when its cold because the computer will try to hold lambda.

Power is down in hotter temperatures...You may be giving more throttle for the expected amount of torque you want to feel and not even know it. Plus the AC is running on the really hot days as well, and while it doesn't draw too much energy, it's still a parasitic loss.
