    We've had a bunch of Fords over the years for our Service and Installation Fleet and they never got very good mileage. Always around 10-12 mpg. My daily driver 2013 Ram 3500 will get 14-15 in town and 18-20 on the road heading to the lake.

    What year?

    We have the crew cab (all of the trucks), the boat, trailer and misc. are usually around 8500 pounds. I have hauled a loaded dump trailer, about 22K# at the scales for a short distance. Not something I like to do very often. The F150 is much lighter than the F250, so I am careful when backing down steep inclines.

    Picked up a 2019 F250 6.2 Crew Cab Short Bed in October in KS. Drove it back to FL and saw around 13mpg hiway, I drive around 20 miles a day to and from work and am still below 5k miles and noticed that non-hiway has gone up from 10mpg to around 12 mpg. When we took the last trip with it I was happy to see the computer told me 15mpg average. So as the miles increase and as it breaks in we are getting better fuel mileage. I had them build it with 3.73 gears and put 20's on it factory. While I was building it I told the dealer I was thinking about going 350 and he said that all I would be doing is paying for the badges as the package to get the 20's pretty much took it to a 350. It has more creature comforts than I ever will need or expected and is a great ride. Cab is huge both front and back seats.
    It's not getting what you want, It's wanting what you've got..

    I could live with 15 mpg in a 250. I have only average 16.3 for 150,000 miles in my 150 with a 5.0 and a lot of those miles are highway miles.

    Super duty trucks went to all aluminum bodies 2017. That may account for higher mpg on Fords. My old 7.3 2 wheel drive did bet better mileage compared to my new 4 wheel drive.
