Since only purchasing the car 2 weeks ago, it had 3/4 of tank, finally did a fill up of 12.69 gallons, when the gauge read 18 miles to empty. They had not reset the trip previously, so I;m not sure the exactly mileage yet.  But the AVG has been increasing slightly. the Avg. on the gauge was around 37mpg when i first got it. Everything was reset when they did all the updates at the dealership.

 

It's avg. right now 39.4mpg and has been slowly increasing with mixed hiway/city driving. probably 80% hiway/20% city. Next tank will know much better, I know when I filled it up, it came back and said 525 miles to empty on the trip. So, if I figured 525 to empty / 12.69 gallons it took to fill it up, that comes out to approx. 41.4mpg. 

Mine has learned my home and work with the EV+ about 1/8-1/4 mile from the destination.

As far as I can tell, if you go to the Ford Owner website, under Service & Maintenance>Recalls, after entering your VIN, it will show you the recalls/service programs that are open for your vehicle. If the 15B04 Service Action isn't listed, then it is not "open"; which should mean it has been performed on your car.

I just went to the Ford Owner Website and entered my VIN.  One action that I know I have not had done comes up with a red circle with an ! inside of it.

 

Another action that I don't know if I have had done comes up with an orange circle with an ! inside of it.  Anyone know what the orange circle means?

I've had a similar question but, as near as I can figure out, the red ones are actual recalls, ones where not having it fixed is considered a safety issue and the yellow are customer service programs, where it doesn't directly impact the safe operation. For example, the battery issue is an inconvenience, since the car may not start but does not impact the safety of driving the car.
