I have 2018 latitude w/48k. Never had this issue. Only issue I have is utilizing 6th gear. I have checked mpgs going 75 in 5th and 6th. Looks like 6 is for 80 and above. Is everyone averaging 31mpgs? I think it's the flat terrain around me.
I bought a 2017 Latitude 4x4 w/ manual transmission about a month ago. I haven't checked the actual MPGs yet- is there a way to display instantaneous MPG on the dash display while also displaying speed? My family vehicle (minivan) will show mph, MPG and distance to empty all at the same time.

I agree about 6th gear- it seems only barely higher than 5th gear, and really only useful for keeping those MPGs as high as possible.

Any word on if there has been a software update for manuals (as mentioned in the comments above) that would provide more power in 3rd/4th/5th gear? I find myself having to downshift A LOT when going up a hill on the highway. Of course, I do live in Colorado, so "hills" may be an understatement.
