Go with the Eco. I test drove my buddy's truck with it and I pray they come out with something like that for the Super Duty.

Bought the wife a 2011 5.0 F150 in january. Sounds great even in stock form. Decent mileage (17.5 going by the dash readout. Never hand-calculated it tho). Didn't have a single problem with it up when we traded it last week for a 2012 Ecoboost F150. Loving that lil V6 so far! Just waiting for the warrenty to run out so I can open up the exhaust and actually hear the turbo's! Still going thru the break-in period (only has 700 miles on it so far), so we don't know what the mpg's and maintenance will be like yet.
