On my maiden trip, +65 or so, 7 mpg on mountain roads. After that 60-62, 8.2 mpg, flat roads, wind at your back, 9 mpg.

T&S do you have a Jensen GPS/DVD/Radio in your Forester? If so you probably have a MPG feature. On mine it's under Navigation > More > MPG (or something like that). To start using it you enter your ODO miles on a full-tank of gas and then every time you stop for gas you update it - with ODO, GAL and Cost. It figures out the MPG and the Cost Per Mile.

We were doing it on our phones all the time until we tried this. Now we not only have a record of miles driven, but the MPG and cost. I wish I had been clever enough to start using it from the day I picked up the RV ad the dealership.

I received the letter last month. Called my local Ford Dealer and they said bring it in. The fix took less that 10 minutes no waiting; just drove it in and drove it out. No Charge. 2012 Forester 3011 10,000 and change mileage overall average MPG 7.265. did not notice any significant change after the re-programing.

Went to the Ford dealership yesterday. Had them put in my Vin number and check for recalls. Our 2016 forester 3171 with a 2015 Ford chassis, did not show any recalls.

I've been checking at Ford's recall site
https://owner.ford.com/tools/account...e/recalls.html
and still nothing for me either. Wonder if was only engines made during a certain time period.

had mine done about a month ago. Been on 2 trips and haven't seen any improvements or losses of MPG's. Shift points seem to be a bit different and smoother but I might be imagining that.

You may notice changes with transmission shift patterns do to the module adaptive relearn process.
