I just recently got a new one, i have 1600 miles now and just drove home from Georgia to Orlando Fl, 334 miles, according to the computer i averaged 19.3 mpg on the trip home and thats runin 80-85 mph a/c 1/2 the time, but it didnt change when i had it off either, mines an f250 4x4. I belive it right but i'll know when i fill it up.
One thing i noticed i dont like, but my 05 6.0 is the same, when you travel on wet clay roads the clay/mud get all up in the rubber seal at the bottom of the doors, it will have to be cleaned regulary to keep it from really causing a mess and eventually rusting out.
Overall I like the truck, plenty power, drives really nice, but doesnt seem as much like a truck as my 05 6.0, plus you cant hear the turbo whistle, i really miss that. Also I like the diesel sound of the 6.0, its sounds way more like a truck too me, although the 6.7 will blow it away.
Its hard to keep from runnin 90mph unless you use the cruise, it just floats down the road effortlessley, its really amazing in that respect.
I pulled a 6K capacity forklift that weight right at 12K on a 2K trailer the other day, it was mostly highway, and I was getting 16mpg and power wise you really couldnt even feel it behind you, weight wise you could tell it. With the power that truck has you could easily get in trouble overloading the vehicle if you aint carefull
