How many miles on your Ecoboost??

Just wondering how many miles some of you Ecoboost owners have racked up??!! I have owned my truck for a year with 13,000mi and the only problem i have had is a shudder when accelerating from a dead stop on a steep incline with my camper in tow. Supposedly there is a TSB report out on it and Ford has a fix. But other than that i am LOVING this truck!!!!!!!! I'm just getting very nervous after reading about some of the problems people are having. So i need to hear from other owners that are having trouble free miles before i start contemplating selling it!!

Ive had mine a year with 12000 trouble free miles. The tranny did some weird shifting at first and I dont like the way mine stays in 3rd gear when coming to a stop. Im not getting the mileage everyone else seems to be getting 13 is what Im averaging right now and even if I keep my foot out of it it seems the most I get is 15 almost got to 17 once driving like grandma on the trunpike. I live in the suburbs and drive mostly country roads with some city driving. Ive got 3:83 rears with FX4 package and crew cab. I talked to a guy last week he said he didnt really see good mileage until around 20,000 miles. What kind of mileage are you getting with what rears?

Thanks for the reply and that really sucks! I traded my 06' 6.0 because I could not get the same mileage so many others were reporting and I did not find a dealer that would listen to me. So far I have found it to be the same with the eco boost. Maybe it is me and my foot but even watching the computer with one and barely breathing on the go pedal I cant get close to those numbers.

I also have the FX4 with 3.73 gears and max tow pkg. I am not doing much better than you. I average 14.5mpg around town and between 17-17.5mpg on the highway.

Well, I've had mine a week or so now and here are the mileage numbers. Towing @ 62 MPH = 11 MPG and without the trailer @ 70 MPH = 21 MPG. This is according to the computer as I have yet to go through a complete tank of fuel (I love it).
