If I can use my hands and toes to count, then the Ford sticker shows 14/19 for the 4x4 with whatever axle they use to calculate. I haven't seen anyone hand calculate to confirm the estimates.

I just got mine, but haven't burned a full tank yet. So far after about 100 miles of combo driving and a few punches to the floor the comp is showing 17.7 ave. I tried a reset when I was on the hwy cruising 70 and got 19mpg for about 20 miles.. I'll report back when I finish the tank of gas..

My 2004 5.4 is getting me between 9 and 10mpg while towing my cargo trailer. Would love to get 12 -13 !

I only have about 80 miles on mine with all local driving.Several stop lights with mixed driving and computer is showing 17.8.I think it will be about a 20 mpg truck on the highway after it gets broke in.It is a 4x4.I don't think any small displacement engine will get much mpg towing.I would bet 12 or 13 mpg towing depending on the load.Big engines {6.2} do not get nearly as good mpg as a small engine running empty but when put under heavy load the mpgs do not drop as drastic. 98% of my annual driving will be not towing so I prefer the 5.0.If I towed 25% of the time I would go for the 6.2.Not only for mpgs but for hard working it is probably a tougher engine.Cast iron block vs the aluminum 5.0
After we get more miles on we can report a more accurate mpg.

haha

"Towing" How the heck do you compare mpg apples to apples towing unless your hooking up the same trailer the same day the same time the same way?

Anyone ever own a 5.8L in an F-150? What a fricken pig!!! Yes, it'll work it's tail off all day long and beg for more and with a very healthy appetite.

These old pushrod motors required 3 times the maintenance intervals as the new engines and sucked fuel like an aqueduct.

Yes, much of that inefficiency came from the transmission but the truck was also 1500-2000 lbs lighter.

These trucks, even the 6.2L have achieved phenomenal MPG standards while requiring less routine maintenance and lugging around a bigger truck.

I'm thinking that many of you on here have never owned a pre 1997 F-150. For the exception of oil changes and wear items, the truck is virtually maintenance free for each 100,000 mile period.

And, no, I'm not sipping the coolade. I just think that Ford have brought us onehelluva truck.

Yes, I owned a 92 F150 with the 351, 4 speed, 3.55 and 4x4. I consistently got 18-19 mpg on the highway. Running around the farm checking on the cows everyday mixed with some city driving I got 9 mpg. It was ten times better than the two 302's that I owned previously. However it wasn't much good at towing, anything over 5000 lbs and it struggled. I keep it from 92-05 and only problems were the starter had to be rebuilt and the front hubs kept failing. Ford paid for 4 and I paid for the last one. (not counting routine stuff like spark plugs, distributor cap, etc)

I hope that the ecoboost is reliable as that truck as at least I could work on it. Now with variable timing, direct injection and more and more electronics, you might near have to take it in for service.
Now if it is reliable as my John Deeres I will be happy. One is 9 years old and the other is 6. So far no problems with direct injection, turbos, engines, trannys or anything else major. Mainly mice chewing on wires and I had to replace all of the braided fuel lines on both.

I can't complain about the 95 351 EC 4x4 I had. It towed fairly well. It definately wouldn't tow as fast as the 06 I have now, but it didn't have the horsepower or torque. But I did get 10 mpg average while towing. It just wouldn't run much over 60 mph with the trailer behind it. The one trick I learned with that truck is that you had to keep the rpm over 1400 or it would bog down and suck fuel like Norm sucking down brewskis at Cheers.

I'm almost to call BS on the 5.8 mileage. I had an '88 with the 5.8 Regular Cab Long Bed 4x4 with the Automatic. Yes it was the old 3 speed C6 transmission, but it couldn't make that much difference.

I never got more than 11 running empty down the highway.

it does make that much of a difference, i have a extended cab Flareside, HEAVY, 4.10 gears and E4OD, and when the engine was still stock i was getting 15 on the highway...

not stock as it is now, it'll probably get 13, thats after i get it back on the road...
