First Trip With the '15

Wow is all I can say. A big difference from my '12 I traded in. The exhaust brake works awesome! Fuel economy at 70 over 600 mile trip was 11.4.
Details of the load.

Palomino Maverick 2902
Baja 290 Sport with twin 454's loaded with 150 gallons of Fuel
2015 F-350 loaded with fuel
Total Weight: 23,338 (CAT Scale)

Extremely happy with this new truck. I will say this, I am very happy I had airbags installed prior to this trip.

Great news. I have an F-450 on order to do the truck camper/boat thing. I should only be around 20k but I'd be happy with 10mpg.

Honestly, I was expecting to be around the 8-10 mark. So I am overwhelmingly happy with the 11.4. Granted I was only running 70, but still.
I just want to mention my mileage was all hand calculated.
