Welcome to the Crown Vics ETC blog!

On April 6, 2000, I purchased a 1998 Ford Crown Victoria LX HPP with 23,490 miles. I decided to start a little website for it featuring a running log of my experiences with the car. Vic 1.0 was retired in 2015 due to rust and electrical issues. Vic 2.0 was a 2006 P71 in Blue Pearl that belonged to my boyfriend. It was a Ford demo and never saw actual police use. It was damaged in September of 2018 with well over 186,000 miles. It was replaced by Vic 3.0 in October 2018, a 2008 P71 in Silver Birch with 120,971 miles.

No way... really???

Filled up the tank, reset the trip odometer, and look what I saw:

Now, that is NOTHING compared to, say, a 2014 Ford Focus, but for a 16 year old full size sedan with a 4.6 V8... In fact, that distance-to-empty is the highest I've seen so far.
