Depends, 5.4 or V10?
The V10 will net ya low double digits or most times, unless towing.

The 5.4 low teens if you baby it empty, put a load behind it and forget about it... prob around 5

In a side by side comparison, our company trucks that we run on a dailey basis:

05 Extendedcab long bed, 6.0, 2wd, with rack and tools averages 12 - 14.
06 singlecab long bed, 5.4, 2wd, with rack and tools averages 8 - 10.


And you can tell a big difference in power. The 5.4 is a dog.

If I were to get a gasser I would stay away from the 5.4 and get a 4.6. Better MPGs and more reliable/modable

I have had 3 5.4s, 3 4.6s, 2 7.3s and 1 6.0. The 2 of my 5.4s were the old 16 valve motors and only got 14-15 at best and 10 when towing a little. My 24 valve 5.4 got 18.5 at best empty avg 15-16. My 4.6s were good on gas 16-20. My 7.3s avg 16-19 empty, 13-15 towing. 6.0 so far is around 15 doing everything. All trucks were at least ext cab off roads or bigger.

I have a 5.4 and its been an ok motor. Im on my second one now. The first had 285000 miles on it and had a lot of problems. This ones been ok. It has 90k. I have 3.73s and 4x4 and I get about 10.6 romping on it about half the time. Better than any other truck I've seen around here this big. But I plan on swaping to a diesel.
