1999 Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor 4.6 SOHC from North America
I've owned my Police Interceptor one month, and needed a new starter, and the battery is getting low, and so is the alternator.
I'm also hearing a hissing noise from under the hood, and she also needs a tune up.
When she runs, she flies, but very poor gas mileage; I'm getting 210 miles to a fill up from a 14 gallon tank.
I'm very frustrated, and now when I start it before the engine warms up, it dies, and the interior needs an upgrade.
It's very fast when she wants to run.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

That's 15 mpg; don't count on getting significantly better mpg, even with a tuneup.
A CVPI is not the best choice if mpg is a concern anyways...

"I'm also hearing a hissing noise from under the hood, and she also needs a tune up."
The hissing noise is likely a cracked vacuum line. Also check the air-intake for cracks.
