I'll be able to tell you after this weekend. I'm picking up my truck tomorrow and have a long drive from the Central Valley of CA down to San Diego and back, including going over the grapevine.

Good buddy of mine traded out his 08' 4x F350 last week (blew his motor as well w/93K on it - NO KIDDING) and got 18+ on his first full tank (hand calc'd. He's in construction as well so high miles (mostly hwy) between jobs in rollin hills in SA and just to the north.

I've had a 07 and a 09 Duramax and both of them got 16 MPG no matter How i drove them LOL ,so it sounds like Ford is in the game this go around!

looking forward to my F250 Crew cab :~)

All you read is how everybody thinks the perfect truck would be a Ford with Cummins,and I agree,But Maybe Just maybe, ford has changed all that with this new Motor! we can only Hope!

Ford already has the straight axel,if this new motor pans out It will be ALL GOOD :~)

a complete kit to make a GM a straight axel is around $16,000, Fork That LOL

I doubt the body configuration will impact the mileage at all. A S/B ext cab will do the same as a C/C long bed would if they both have the same gears. A couple hundred lbs of weight isn't going to effect a truck like this much at all.

Your advantage is if you are by the coast, the cooler, denser air should boost your mileage a little. I can set my cruise at 55 on level ground and beat 20mpg but that does not work for any distance. In the real world at speed limit you can expect 17mpg or close to it.

My info is in the signature line.

How long did it take you to clean that truck in your pic?? I used to do that stuff until I got lazy (and the wife stopped helping clean up)!! There was a period in the 70s when the guy who owned the car wash would run me off!!

Drove from Central Valley (Visalia, CA) to San Diego, including over the grapevine, and averaged 20.6 MPG cruising 65-70 the whole way.

Driving back the same route I hit a couple hours of traffic in LA and still managed to nurse it to a 19.4 MPG trip on the way back. Very impressed.

I'm looking at about 16-ish around town. Love the power and efficiency, too, huge upgrade over my 2003 Dodge Ram Hemi and its 12MPG efforts.

Only have about 1,000 miles on it and just picked it up Friday (had 300 when I picked it up) so the mileage might improve a little but would be very happy with it as is.

My truck is a Crew Cab Short Bed with Lariat Package and a 3.55 rear

I live near the Appalachian Mtns., and I'm able to get 17.4 in the city and 20.9 highway. I'm happy because every fill up my mileage is increasing. My ride is a 2011 250 KR CC 6.7L FX4
