My buddy and I went wheeling this weekend and I was amazed at what he said his gas mileage was with both of us pulling our Jeeps and trailers.
2 hr drive I averaged around 9-10mpg, while he was getting around 16mpg.
My 06 is a F250, super crew, FX4
His is a 06 F150, ext cab, 2 wheel drive
I understand the weight difference between the trucks and everything, but does having a 2 wheel drive truck make that much difference over a 4x4? My dad has a 01 F150 4x4 and he doesnt get nearly that kind of mpg driving around town without a trailer hooked up.
With gas prices getting as bad as they are and my need for having an F250 decreasing, I was thinking about downgrading to a F150 4x4, but was wondering if it was worth it. Would the weight difference in it being a 4x4 kill the mileage. Im just jealous of his great MPG. LOL
I used to tow my 30ft TT 6000lbs average with my Expedition 5.4 and consistantly got 8-9 mpg at 65mph. I'll let you know next week how I did with the F350 6.0. Your buddies mileage seems too high, and prolly a wishfull guess at best.
