Well guys, I guess I am your guinea pig on this one. I have had two ecoboosts in the F150. I first had a 2011 with the max-tow pkg and pulling my 34 ft. travel trailer @ 10K lbs. was no problem. Got an average of 8.6 with the 3.73 axles in the max-tow. I decided I wanted better fuel economy so I traded for a 2013 with the regular tow pkg with 3.31 axles. Pulled just fine and I jump a whopping 1 mpg towing to 9.6. Both of these trips were almost identical about 2200 miles. Neither pickup could get the highway rated mpg on their stickers. Best the max-tow could do was about 16.7 overall and the regular tow pkg was about 17.5 overall.
I found that either pickup would get about 20 driving in the city. But how do you get an average lower than that if the highway mileage is suppose to be better??? IDK
Ohhhh and by the way they were both Platinum 4X4.
