New purchase help/mileage
I'm seriously considering purchasing an '02 F250 CC LWB 4x4 Auto Lariat. I was pretty excited about this truck until someone I met today with a very similiar truck told me his mileage. He told me he gets only 13-14mpg. I currently have a '99 F250 x-cab LWB 2wd 6spd that gets 19mpg. My wife needs the auto tranny because of back problems. I expected a slight mileage drop with the auto, but that much is ridiculous. Do these numbers sound correct? Any experiences with a similarly equipped truck?
