99-03 5.4l triton mpg

I believe in 04 they changed the 5.4l to the 3v engine, I'm having a tough time trying to find my 6.0 powerstroke I want and ran into a f250 with 52k original miles its a 2002

what type of mpg can be expected out of this type of setup? and what real world numbers are you owners seeing?

the setup is a xlt f250 reg cab, 5.4l, 4x4, auto, 3.73 axle ratio

thanks

2004 was the transition year for the F150's. The SD's still had the 2V in 2004.

With my setup and my driving style and conditions, I get 14-15mpg pretty regularly. I've been in the 17's on a trip and I've been in the 10's around town. But 14-15 is the norm for me.

These guys have given you a pretty good idea of the mileage. If I'm real careful on the highway I can get 14, around town it's 8. Never had any real trouble with the truck it does what I ask, maybe a little slower than a 6.0. You just can't bring up mileage and a 5.4 Super Duty in the same sentence. It's a working truck nothing like a half ton or make believe 3/4 ton Chebbie.

My old 01 ext cab long box 5.4 got around 600km to a tank. 3.73 gears.

My 99 single cab long box 5.4 baby has a 9" lift with 40x14.50 tires and it gets around 400km to a tank.

So around 12-13 for my 01 and 7-8 for my 99.

I had a regular cab '01 with the 5.4 and a 5 speed, 2.5" lift and 315 x 75's that I got 19 with when running the passes from Durango Co to Grand Jct. It got 14 on a regular basis other than that one exception.

i've seen 7mpg (15k lbs+ 3rd gear going 65) and i've seen 17 on the highway unloaded. If you are just planning on driving the truck around with no load you should see 13-14 avg.

Consider this. I was looking at a new V-6 4x4 Ranger online today. The EPA estimated MPG was 18 MPG highway and 14 city. Based on that, my 5.4L does fine.
