F-150??????

Hey guys
Well with all the my truck has esp the stack and the lift. its not very practical for me to drive it daily for my construction business. I drive around 100 miles a day Monday through Friday.

I need a smaller truck that wasts less fuel so i had been looking to buy a used F-150 under 10k or an even smaller ranger or toyota tacoma 6cyl.

Im looking to see how much MPG people are getting out of their 5.4L F-150 V8 trucks..... the one im looking at is a 2004 supercab 2wd v8 with under 100k miles for under 10k

will i be able to fill it up once a week? maybe get even better milage out if it?

any input you guys have is very much appreciated...

We have an 04 F-150 Supercab FX4 and it does pretty decent on gas. We fill it up probably once every 5-7 days. It gets daily driven and mostly highway miles, probably 40 mile round trip for my brother to work everyday and then when he goes out at night.

Rides like a dream IMO with a great interior.

That seems like a good deal. Use that, keep the miles and wear off of Christine.
