I'm liking it so far...

Finally got a picture of the new rig-F350 CCSWB 4x4 King Ranch in Forest Green metallic/adobe. It's stock except for the 2.5" lift in front to level it and the firestone air bags in the rear.

Most of the KR's we saw at the dealers had the dark leather/light adobe interiors, so we deicded to order the dark leather with black option. We think it looks nice.

Fuel mileage is really good so far too. I did a 200 mile highway trip yesterday with the cruise set at 72 mph and finished with 20.1 mpg showing on the dash. I'm getting 15-16 around town and 12-13 mpg when towing the buggy on the car trailer in the mountains. The power is great too. My only complaint would be that I wished the Ford exhaust brake worked more like the way my 08 Dodge's worked.

Glad you like her. How do you have 65 miles to empty with a quarter tank showing. Reason I ask is that my gauge is right on if its half I've got 13 gallons and so on.

Good question, I can only assume the computer is using the worst mpg in recent driving and basing it on that so it's worst case. When I towed the other day I know I was getting about 10 mpg. If the tank is at 1/4 then it should have 6.5 gallons left (26 gal tank), 6.5 gallons x 10 mpg = 65 miles to empty.

I know it will sometimes read "65 mpg to empty" and you will drive 5 miles and then it will say "63 miles to empty" so it doesn't appear to be linear. If you're getting better mileage it doesn't seem to calculate using the mpg you're getting right then.

So how many gallons is the tank in the long beds? I wonder if the computer will adjust when I install my 50 gallon after market tank or if it will still think it has the 26 gallon tank?

The lond-bed is 36-37 gals,and i don't think the computer will adjust to the aftermarket tank because it will have no sensor in it!

Yes but 6.5 * 20 is a little more than 65. But the o.p. answered it for me. Also I notice that if you fill the truck while running it seems to throw it off also.
