My 2016 F350 DRW can manage 17MPG on level highway driving @70MPH but only gets about 9 when pulling 14k. Didn't buy it for economy, bought it for towing and it does that great.

I just finished with a trip from Austin Tx. to Detroit Mi. and back in my new to me King Ranch F250 6.7. I was pulling a 3 horse gooseneck 5,300lbs empty north bound. I was averaged 12.8 empty. The return trip was loaded with tools and misc. stuff after cleaning out my fathers home and garage. I averaged 12 mpg. I am happy with the mileage and performance. I sure don't miss the bad roads in the north pot holes so bad that I thought I was off-roading at 60 miles an hour.

Last summer I pulled my 32ft bump pull TT (9500lbs) through the Rocky Mountains. I put on about 600 miles and averaged 13 mpg. Couldn't complain about that at all. Speeds varied greatly, but lots of long pulls too.

it's all in the pedal. I'm completely convinced of that.. yesterday I averaged about 20MPG in the city.. I pissed off every soccer mom on the road (which was kind of better than the MPGs) and accelerated very slowly. When I reached a steep grade I would hold the pedal still, and push very very lightly to keep within 5mph of my desired speed (I let the truck slow down).. Towing my 33' 8k travel trailer I was averaging 9.7mpg with stop and go city(ish) traffic.. 12mpg on the highway at 65mph.. If I took this down to 60mph it would have been way better..

I've read numerous posts that say mpg isn't reflective of gas pedal aggressiveness. I baby mine and my mileage SUCKS !!!

My 28' TT is 5k dry. Fully loaded truck and all I expect about 6.5k.

I keep my camper in Java, VA and hauled it to Jordan Lake for Memorial day (500 round trip).

My truck is 2012 F250 6.7 Crew longbed fx4 with 3.31 rear. Hi&S mini max set to stock, egr and dpf are out.

14-15 mpg with the load and heavy foot. No load 20 mpg easy. Pulling a tandem jet ski trailer with two skis I was at 17 mpg.

Prior to delete I was 17 on hwy no load 14 city 12 with the camper.

My truck has 217,000 miles.


Check your driveline. Be sure your front hubs are free, drive axle is smooth and brakes are not dragging (parking brakes suck on this model) then check your trailer too. I think with that poor milage you have a problem. Might be dpf/Regen issue

Solid advice... always check for drag.

The OP is also a Gas job looking for a reason to switch. His mileage doesn't seem that bad for a gas engine. Hopefully some of the diesel mileage posts will help him decide if it is worth the switch.

Your username looks familiar. Were you on the ecoboost forum a while back?

Yup, I keep the same username across all forums I'm on. As much as I loved my ecoboost, I'm very glad I made the switch to a diesel.
