Don't let the "V6" label fool you, I'm not seeing the EB matching the 5.0 in mileage from the many reports I've read here. Close, in some cases, but only when the EB is carrying a tall gear and I'm...

My 2012 came with the Michelins. At 42,500 miles they look very comparable to the spare. I'll look for at least 80,000 miles from them. Expensive? Yes. Last longer? Yes.
I've also had good service...

Hey, sorry. Seemed pretty high. Falls off pretty quickly between 68-70 (25) and 70-75 (21). My 5.0 falls at a steadier pace than your Eco Boost and has been more consistent over all since I bought...

Tell that to those current eco boost owners that were expecting great fuel mileage because it's "only" a 3.5 V-6.
I'll be surprised if the 2.7 betters a 5.0 in real world mpg. Not EPA estimates....

First change was at 5000 miles.
Then at 15K, 25K, 35K, when I reach 45K and every additional 10,000 miles after that.
