Is your 150 an Ecoboost or 5.0?
It's a 6.2L - 411 HP / 434 TQ - I Love it! I only average about 13.9 MPG on a tank, that's calculating with a "Big Chief" notebook and a #2 pencil....LOL! On the interstate I'm averaging about 14.9 according to the computer in the truck, but when calculated by had it's 14.0 or less for a tank. Which I didn't purchase the truck for fuel economy, so I can't complain too much. It's more about "smiles per gallon than miles per gallon"!

Wow, not that many of those around. I did know the F-150 / Raptor got the higher output versions of the 6.2L. Sweet truck!

In 2011, the Harley Davidson (my truck) the Lariat Limited and Raptor had the 6.2L standard, optional on the other F-150's. It's hard to find that engine option now, the nearest one to me right now is 300 miles away in Arkansas.

And, I believe for the next gen 2015 truck, the 6.2L goes away except for the Raptor and SD. Enjoy it.

I wonder if the Raptor will still be an option. I haven't heard anything for sure on that yet. It's a shame they are doing away with the engine in the F150, there are some of us that has priorities other than just fuel economy in mind. Which we are a minority to be sure. I'll probably trade the Harley this year on a '14 FX4 or Platunum 4X4 with the 6.2L, they are getting hard to find though.

That being said, I'll probably add the 5-star tuner to my truck once the powertrain warranty expires. Not for top speed, but just for better midrange power and to eliminate the stupid throttle reduction until 3500RPM, etc.
If you drove out in west Texas you might understand. Lots of straight roads and not a lot of traffic. That 95 is enough to consider, saying screw the warranty. At 90 plus, I average 10 mpg, depending on the head winds. The one thing that pissed me off, I was running later model Ford Diesel, he did not pull from me till I hit the limiter. Not saying I could have beat him, but by god I was with him till I hit the limiter.

No surprise running the diesel - they don't pull that hard at the top of the range - just mountains of torque in the lower / mid ranges. 6.2L pulls hardest near its top end. Horsepower generates top speeds, and here the 6.7 / 6.2 are pretty equal.

Yeah, I imagine driving in TX is very different than the narrow, winding hills of NH, although our Interstates aren't bad (still plenty of bends). Always wanted to see the state.

The scenery in W. and S. Texas is much different than N.H by far. We were up in the Vermont,N.H. area about 20 years ago in the spring. It was very beautiful and I learned a valuable lesson. We rented a cabin by a lake in Vermont one weekend. It was a nice warm day and my new wife and I went out on the pier. She laid out sun tanning and me, well I shucked off my shirt and jumped in.........it was the coldest most breath taking dive of my life. I never knew a lake could be so cold. I made a hasty exit to say the least Most definelty different than the ponds I was used too

Haha yeah, lakes stay cold here for much of the year. Late July and August aren't bad. We often travel a couple of hours to the ocean and that is always cold, but once you force yourself to stay in it and get all wet, it starts to feel warm and can be an invigorating experience.
