In modern fuel injected engines the amount of fuel in the oil is negligible. At least it has been in samples I've sent to Blackstone. Less than one half of one percent after 10,000 miles.

I live in Alabama, so American. Not sure what change you are speaking of? My average mpg over the time I've owned the truck is 19.1 as I stated and is pictured.

If mine burns much, it doesn't tell on itself on the dipstick. At just under 48,000 miles my 2012 5.0 has had 5 oil changes. I went 5000 miles on the factory fill and have gone 10,000 miles per...

That's one of the silliest things I've ever read. If that's the case then look for lots of issues over time because few people run the "hell" out of their vehicles on a regular basis. How do you run...

I read an interesting article in Car and Driver on the 2.3 EcoBoost in the new Mustang recently and I believe the results of the test tell a story about what to expect with the fuel economy of the...

10,000 mile EcoBoost Break In

I've read numerous threads about EcoBoost fuel mileage and invariably someone points out that an EcoBoost motor doesn't reach it's full fuel economy potential until it has at least 10,000 miles on...

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...
