some newer engines it's not required to "break them in" the way you used to....keeping under a certian RPM and not driving a steady speed for a long period of time....so that is correct...however every new engine will burn a little more gas and possibly oil when brand new till it gets a few heat cycles in for everthing to "come together".......I know my fusion I bought in 08 took about 10K miles and then it really bumped up in the MPG area and drove like a friggin dream.....
