Towing my utility trailer with Polaris 800 Crew aboard, I get about 15 taking it easy. These trucks weigh up to 7500 lbs empty, they are big and not very aerodynamic. Freeway is usually a little over 17 mpg at 77-78 mph. The 4x4 push button control in the transfer case also broke, guess when, winter! That to me is going backwards. I don't know if it matters but this is at about 6,000 feet above sea level. I have a rheostat on mine and have it set around 1,300 rpm's. The Ford F-250 is a series of pickup trucks that feature many powerful engines, both in gas and diesel varieties.
By comparison to my '05 6. Towing my 16' steel vending trailer, it's nearly identical. Of course I couldn't help but reply to a few threads. Spent 40K for a fully loaded truck new, it has been a total pile of junk! That is real world driving including idle time, city, regens, but no towing. On level highway on cruise at 108 kms per hour 67 miles per hour I get about 21 to 24 miles per gallon. I have 37,000 miles on my truck now and I have had it for one year. Because it's so easy to do.
But the more miles one drives, the more significant the economy becomes. That depends a lot more on the terrain than the other two though, since there's not nearly as much drag, just added weight. Oh, I towed 2 canoes once that weight 44 pounds each. Joe I do a lot of in town driving to my overall mileage isn't that high 15-16 mpg but I get 18ish on the interstate at 70-75 mpg and I think that's pretty good considering the lift, tires, and front air dam is cut off. I've done as well as 17 and as poorly as 13.
Also, I realized those cold winters I use my hi-idle. Maybe I'll have to do this more often. I have had two 7. Have not hand calculated anything but the fuel used figures are close so I can't imagine its too far from reality, certainly good enough fur who its for I'm not sure why the difference, but it seems that the gallons used on the trip screen is far more accurate on my 2012 6. My trip B has never been reset either. More on point, I recently looked at my Trip B, which had never been reset.
Mine has 21,000 and I get 11-12 mpg daily. It was nice, but I am going to drive this truck a lot and I am wondering about mileage. This is significantly better than the 2007 5. I don't seem to be to far out on my mileage. With just over 7000miles, I'm averaging about 16. This will probably be my last diesel and Ford if they don't do something drastic. .
Empty and keeping it below 70 I get 14 mpg. Glad to see you and so many of the same group here, and so many new people! The mileage has had to of rolled over 3 times being it only goes to 9999 miles. The F150 is a good truck and if you check out those forums there is a lot of info on what it can do for you. Ford service has been a total joke as well. I usually have to stick at about 65 to do that well.
Don't give up technology progress. I actually was working on an issue with some trailer wiring and thought I'd come search here to see if I could find some useful info. First half of winter I had remote start on 20 min. But, the numbers don't lie. I only use the truck for pulling a trailer, it has plenty of power for that when it is working.
On one of the trip meter I have 7,808. My trip B has never been reset and I have a bit under 21,000 miles on the truck. The 2012 seems to be pretty spot on, off occasionally by max. You have to give up something to get something. Another fun way to look at it is I am getting 41. Overall, I'm ok with the mileage I get. I stopped calculating by hand a long time ago since the computer is so accurate.
Their answer to the constant turbo failures, rebuild it with the same used junk that failed. I am looking at buying a new truck sometime this year and I went to the dealer today and took a new f250 for a spin. This is on an '11 supercab with the short bed, unloaded, and barely more than 1,000 miles on the odometer. For a big truck I think the 6. Not many more toys could be put on it. I remember reseting it before a drive out to Arizona to pick up the 5er. On a side note 2,343 gallons of fuel through the old girl.
