Fuel Milage, so how is everyone doing.

I can not say enough about these trucks. Love the ride, the towing, and just plain driving.

Attached bellow are my fuel records kept on my gps for taxes. The pre July 26, 2011 is from my 96 f350 7.3. The later through end of July is on my 2011 CCLB f-250. Most of my driving is in the Washington D.C area, 70% highway, 30% in town stop and go. It sure beats the gasser options!

Cheers!

I have a 2012 ccsbf350,fx4 srw and I'm getting around 15-18 mpg empty but I only have 8600 miles on it. Pulled my 40' fifth wheel this weekend though and only averaged 9-10. Gotta say though I was running 70-75 mph. Except for the cross winds didn't,t even know it was behind me.

At 60 mph on a long (400 mile) highway trip I generally see about 17 - 18 mpg. The way I use the truck which has some heavy towing but very little city driving I average 13.4 mpg. I have never been as impressed with a truck as am with this one but I have also never had a truck that used this much fuel. (This is my first Ford)

At 69-74 into a 10mph headwind I get 18.5, running 79 for 280 miles I get 17.4. In town mix of 80% stop and go I get 16.1. All numbers are hand calculated. I think at 65, this truck is capable of 19.5. I went back and forth between ford and dodge, glad I made the choice I did. A buddy of mine has a 12 ram and just went on a hunting trip, running 65 he averaged 13. He deleted it the week he returned. I know we shouldn't buy these trucks for mileage, however that is bs to bet that low.

What truck did you have that would get better than 13.4 mpg pulling heavy loads?

The 13.4 is my average over the last 3000 miles - only part of which is towing. When towing I can get anywhere from about 7 mpg to 11 mpg depending on whether I am towing my little 15,000 lb RV or my 30,000 lb gooseneck. The towing mileage is about as good as any of my other diesels that I have owned. Its when running empty that I am a little disappointed. My old 6.5 TD in my 93 GMC CC and the Duramaxs that I have owned both got 20 mpg empty on the highway. The 99 Cummins would do even slightly better. I am thrilled with this truck - just a little disappointed in the highway fuel economy. I might not have expected so much if Ford hadn't started this BS:

What a total BS article. That is flat out deception...I guess the 80 miles could have been all down hill.
