Fuel economy question-Does this sound right?
I've been driving my new to me F250, 2011 for about 3 weeks now. According to the in dash display, I am getting an average of only 14.5-15.0 mpg. I haven't been "laying into it" much, and try to drive pretty conservatively, keeping the tach around 1500-1700 rpms. I've driven about 900 miles since getting the truck, with about 60/40 hwy/city driving. All this is while not towing anything.
I have the Lariat package, F250, 6.7L, 3.55 gears in the back.
Some of the reports I've been reading make me think that the mileage I'm getting is a bit low; it seems like others seem to get about 16 city/20 hwy, and I'm not even close to that, even looking at the instant fuel economy meter while doing 65 down the hwy.
What are your thoughts? Does this sound right? Should I try using some fuel additive to help?
