150,000 miles in 2008!?!?

What do you guys think about Ford and that F350 that they have put 150,000 miles on while pulling two different trailers? One trailer was 40ft closed trailer and the second was a 20ft for the last 50,000. They said that they averaged over 1,200 miles a day, that would be an oil change week and God only knows how many fill ups a week. Do you think this proved anything or the test should have been done in stop in go traffic day in and day out and not all highway???

True it would have taken awhile, but I think 75,000 miles in stop in go traffic with no problems would be way more impressive because I want to know things like coolant,turbo, fuel filter, air filter and interior issues and brake wear those types of things ya know....

wow- that is nuts! I need to email my little bro and see if he knows anything more about it... those guys gotta be sick of that truck by now too! Now the filters would get a work out with all the different places they filled up at- several times a day! I've seen the little parades of vehicles with bar codes on them when I was running through Detroit before, out for their daily test drives, but that new one would have been cool to talk to the guys while they were filling up...

I think its still impressive considering the terrain an what they were pulling... but I think they should have had another truck doing in town driving or combo driving like most normal people do... still pretty impressive without any problems!


but remember, it wasnt consecutive days -- they stopped for maintenance and other rest days and such.

It wasn't consistent days but it was accomplished in 131 days. Pretty impressive. I wonder how the DPF held up. I know that there had to be times they were unable to find ULSD.

Let me just say that stations around my house still were labeled 500 ppm sulfur, not to be used in 2007 or newer vehicles. Not all stations but a few as of last month i have found several of these stations have changed their sticker to the 15 ppm sulfur ULSD. I live in League City, TX.
