What kind of gas mileage does a 1999 Mercury Cougar get?

It depends on the model you get, but most importantly on how you drive, as well as many other factors like temperature and modifications to the vehicle. I have heard of the Zetec powered Cougar getting regular 29 mpg mixed driving, without trying hard, while the Duratec V6 will usually run at around 22 to 25 mpg, mixed. The Cougar is a mid size car, do not think otherwise, so the I4 Zetec which does great in the Focus does have trouble getting the cougar to move the way you would want it to sometimes. There were also only about 500 Zetec powered Cougars made with automatic transmissions, so you better learn how to drive a stick.

How do you drain gasoline from fuel tank on cougar mercury 2000?

Because you can't get a siphon down into the tank, and there isn't any sort of drain plug, the best observed method is to disconnect the fuel line from the fuel filter, and then, with a bucket set to catch the fuel, turn the ignition to on, this will result in the engine trying to prime, where it'll just run till the tank is empty.
