My F250 with 355 gears was 16.5 - 16.8 hiway and around 15 average mixed driving.
My F450 with 430 gears runs around 13 mixed driving and close to, but never yet, 15 hiway if I nurse it.
This is hand calculated as both the truck's lie-O-meters were off quite a bit. My wife's new 2012 Fusion's lie-O-meter is just as bad?? I read the thread about everyone's lie-O-meters being dead accurate and wonder how I got the only THREE bad ones??? Oh well. Maybe the calculator in my phone is busted???
Every time I fuel up, the lie-O-meters think they used less fuel than the actual amout I have to add to fill the tank. Usually around 1.5 gallons per tank. If you use the numbers shown on the lie-O-meter the mileage agrees but when you use actual gallons pumped, the mileage suffers.
BTW - if you are interested, the Fusion is getting 33 mpg give or take .4 mpg every tank and that is mixed city driving 100% (work car). We are very happy with the Fusion so far!!! It is a SE with 2.5 4cyl auto.
