Only 116 thousand miles on my 2008. Got to get out more.

Only major maintenance so far has been brakes.

498654km (309849 miles), just retired her to on farm use and upgraded to a 2010 F250, a truck that's more suited to the job.

WILL NEVER DIE!!

'03 E-150 with 389,xxx on it. Use to be a fleet van and I have had it for 2 or 3 years had to put alternator battery tires gas and change oil otherwise still goin strong. Never has been opened up and had major work done. Use it for my daily driver it gets 17 to 23 mpg average and still pull a trailer full of scrap iron with it. Expect to hit 400,000 by end of summer. My friend drove it daily for his job and we TRIED to blow it up cuz he wanted the company to get him a new one. Nothing like throwing the trans into 2nd at 50+ mph and holding your foot to the floor. No problems with anything on van, all original nothing has been opened up engine, trans rear end, ect.

Recently replaced 02 sensors, cleaned fuel injectors, intake plenum gaskets, valve cover gaskets, throttle gasket, pcv valve and isolator bolts to cure a vacuum leak and now it purrs like a kitten again.

I have a 2000, with about 235,000 on the clock and still going strong. But I've always used Mobil one and taken it relatively easy on the old big Blue, as my wife and I like to call it.
