Miles on your Ecoboost?

I'm looking at an EB to replace the 03 Expe 5.4. How many miles have you racked up? The Expe just rolled over 92k and I think it's just broken in good.
Also, how much oil does it take?

23,000 kms (14000miles) on mine since last july. Not a hiccup and it is a work truck to the purest sense of the word.

Bought my first FX4 Ecoboost in April 2011 - traded it off on a 2012 FX4 Ecoboost in January (my second one now) and the 2011 had 60,000 kms on it = 37,500 miles. No issues for warranty although it did "lay down" when you would floor it to pass someone - it only did it a couple times. Dealer couldn't find any issues.

2012 FX4 has 18,000 kms (11,250 miles) on it now and it has also been great. No problems.

9800 miles on mine. She'll be a year old in June but actual build date was 01/11. She runs quieter and smoother than anything I've ever owned, gets great and I mean great gas mileage, has tons and oodles and gobs of power and I love this damned truck like none other in my past.

6qt oil sump, I've had two oil changes and haven't noticed any burn off between changes what so ever. I can't say enough good about it.

The 3.31 axles make a big difference I think.
