Always carefully read your entire Owner’s Guide when first learning about your vehicle and consult the appropriate chapter when questions arise. G Fuel Tank Capacity – Explorer Sport Trac has a 22.5-gallon tank. Your vehicle is designed to use “Flex” fuel and “Regular” unleaded gasoline with a pump (R+M)/2 octane rating of 87 for optimum performance. The use of gasoline with lower octane ratings may degrade performance. A Temperature Control – Rotate the knob to adjust the temperature of the air flow inside the vehicle. B Fan Speed Control – Rotate the knob to adjust the volume of air circulated in the vehicle. C A/C – Uses outside air to cool the vehicle. Air flow will be from the instrument panel vents only. The air conditioning will only function if the outside temperature is about 6°C (43°F) or higher. D Max A/C – Uses recirculated air to quickly cool the vehicle. Air flow will be from the instrument panel vents only. MAX A/C is noisier than A/C, but more economical and efficient. This mode can also be used to help prevent undesirable odors from entering the vehicle. The air conditioning will only function if the outside temperature is about 6°C (43°F) or higher. E Panel – Distributes outside air through the instrument panel vents. F Panel and Floor – Distributes outside air through the instrument panel vents and the floor vents.
