New Engine MPG Increase Question
So I just got my truck and it has 400 miles on it. I rented a truck from enterprise that had the 6.7 in it and had about 24K to 30K on the ticker (I dont remember exactly). Anyway, it was getting 19+ MPG going form Houston to San Antonio.
My new truck is getting about 15 to 17 MPG currently (I am babying it). I think I remember seeing a post on these trucks getting better mileage after they "break in" or whatever. I know Ford says you dont really need to "break in" your truck. but is this true?
I am not trying to create a "what MPG's are you seeing" topic, just asking if the MPG's increase as the truck gets more miles on it. For instance, does the truck get to its "normal" MPG's after a certain amount of mileage, say 5K or 10K?
My truck has 3.55 gears and I think the one I rented had 18" wheels which is usually the 3.31's.
Thanks in advance.
