    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.

    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.

    It is a Stealth! I recently had to remove it due to it throwing codes. Get 14 now!

    Well I hopefully will be a 17 Black Platinum 6.7 owner this week depending on how the Ford auction in Detroit goes this week. So starting to look at what people are running for tuners. I've ran SCT in my 6.0 for years now.

    From what little reading I have done. The Spartan and another brand (donít remember which) are the only to use.

    Holy crap, my F150 Max Tow with 3.73's and the 3.5 Eco sucks gas like there is no tomorrow. I won't own another. 15 daily driving, never hit better than 18 going downhill with the wind at my back. 7-9 MPG pulling my enclosed sled trailer 72 MPH on the interstate since day 1 never got better. Looking at the Chevy with their new 6.6L or maybe the Ford 7.3L gas when it comes out. Don't tow enough to justify 10G's for a diesel.

    Wow, that surprised me. I have the same rig and 20-23 mpg mixed highway/city, is the norm. Towing heavy cuts in one-half.
