Truth on small turbo engines fuel economy claims

Consumer Reports offers truth on small turbo engines fuel economy claims

Consumer Reports makes it clear in the latest group of tests on the ECOBoost Ford Fusion that things are not what we are being led to believe.

Read the results for yourself and discover the real truth
