Does traction control affect mileage? (2005 Ford Crown Victoria)

Does traction control affect gas mileage? Do you get better mileage with it on or off?

Absolutely not . If someone told you that don’t ask them anymore questions. Just leave it on and let it do what it was intended for.

Agree with @VOLVO_V70 Traction control makes NO difference to gas mileage.

Martin , just because I am nosy what prompted this question .

Bought a 2005 Town car with traction control. Am familiar with positraction rear axle. It used more gas than a regular axle.

Another thing that is wrong .

How did you test that theory?
