1st fairly long trip MPG report

Just finished driving from MI to VA (Washington D.C.). Some flat, some mountain and speeds varying from 55-76 MPH. Averaged 19.6 MPG and had 3 regens. About 630 total miles. This is also hand calculated. I used cruise control as much as I could. Anytime there wasn't much traffic it was on.

Just wanted to report this. I have been wondering how some people claim to get close to the 20 MPG range and I was getting at the most 17's and 18's before now.

What was your truck MPG gauge showing you were getting on the trip? Close to your hand calc?

It was the guage showed about .2 higher than the hand calculated on the way there and about .3 on the way home. Same route, but I did push the MPH's a little higher on the way home which decreased my MPG's by almost 1 MPG. I was pushing 80 MPH at times on the way back when on the way there I ran 74-76 High and ran closer to the 55 and 65 posted speed limits when I went through them.

NO! My gauge shows 0.5 to 1+ mpg MORE than hand calc.

Ford is NOT interested in this flaw.

I wish I didn't have the worthless computer turning out false information.

Mine always shows .3 - .7 mpg higher than hand calc. My 2011 EcoBoost was dead on every time for 40k miles. Wish ford made more of an effort on these trucks.

Well my lie-o-meter says 18.9 average over the last 10K miles, so if it is lower than that, I will just let Ford keep on lying to me.

I have fun watching it a little. I don't get to crazy about it though. I bought a HD Diesel truck for a lot of reasons and good MPG's weren't one of them. However it helps having a HD truck with a diesel. I wouldn't have a gasser in a HD pick up.

Mine is usually fairly close. About like yalls, within .5mpg. I've found a few things that I think throw it off. Or that I've seen throw it off. Running easy the first half of a tank then harder the last half. Since the average is pretty much determined and the few low numbers from running hard don't lower the average enough to compensate for the fuel you burned. Another is idling a lot.
