My new 6.7!!

Well guys as the tittle reads, I purchased a 2012 F250 FX4 Lariat Last week Wednesday. Since then the truck now has over 3k miles which were not easy miles by any means. I was deployed to NJ to help out in fueling of cell phone towers. It was colder than heck ( florida native ). Anyway the truck is flat out amazing, the power delivery and smooth ride of this truck is like none I have ever owned or been in. Alot of the other guys up there were in love with it as well. Fuel mileage is incredible, as well as the over all comfort! I will try and get some pictures up of her here shortly as they are on my phone.

The only cell towers we dealt with were ones with diesel back up generators.

My overall fuel mileage while loaded with two full 100 gallon tanks of diesel. And a day of that load and an enclosed trailer, I averaged over 17mpg. On the trip home the tanks were empty and with cruise set at 73mph I averaged 19.4!!! Love this truck so far.
