Ok, that guy is a moron (obvious since he bought a Ford) if he believed that the Egoboost V6 got 28 MPG. Never was that advertised (unless that's imperial gallons...).
Egoboost is nothing more than a marketing gimmick. It's a V6 that drinks fuel like a V8...sometimes worse....all while being more expensive to buy/maintain/repair.
It's amazing how many sheep believed the hype. Ford would have been far better off if they sold it as an alternative to a light duty diesel...not a tree growing, polar bear saving Godsend of a engine that sipped fuel like a prius.
