34" tires and 430s here.... seeing 11.5 combined empty and 10 towing. Not great mpg, but she tows like a champ.


I bet if I did some searching, I'd find my V10s mileage in old treads here... but, if memory serves me correct, I was getting six or seven combined in that. This truck is a HUGE step forward for me.

What kind of towing do u do to get 10mpg? Are there no hills, the best I can get with TT is 9.5.

It's a open car hauler... about 8500 pounds. Running at 60 for the most part and it seems to me that almost every road in CA is a grade.

Yesterday I drove 150 miles with the cruise set at 65 for almost the whole time and got 18.3 mpg. That speed is slow, but I was impressed with the MPG. Truck has 6500 miles on it.

I guess I'm not to far off on mine. Thought something was wrong with me only 8.7 on 130 mile trip. But I have a 9000lbs TT and a golf cart in the bed. The TT is also 10' tall, so that will hurt more then the weight.

i have a 2011 F-250 CC SB, 4x2, 3.73 with 7,100 miles. i get 13 city and 16-17 highway doing 65 MPH. With my 3,000 lb camper i consistently get 12-13 MPG, not too shabby considering the mountainous terrain here in AZ.

My new F250 now has 1600 miles on it. We took our (so far) longest trip today, 170 miles. Driving 70 the average was 14.8. I do not know if it will limber up and do any better or not.

We have a 1150 mile (one way) trip planned for the 1st of August with the Outfitter truck camper loaded. I'm anxious to see what it will do then.

Knothole -- Nice looking SD! We both have very similiar taste...

So...what is your build date? Gear axle ratio?

I have just over 1600 miles on mine...and loving all of it!

The axles are 3.73, but I do not have the date handy. The truck is back in the garage and I will load the Outfitter truck camper tomorrow. Maybe I will remember to look. (I edited my signature to show a bit more.)

I am hoping that the truck camper will not knock the MPG back but a couple of notches.
