Fuel Mileage on 2017 F250 6.2L 3.73 Trucks?

I have a 2018 F250 gasser on order and am waiting patiently for information on when it may be built. In the meantime I read these forums, look at pictures and dream about when I will actually get mine.

I have dug around but I haven't found the answer in any specific place, I searched the 6.2L portion of this forum and did find where they discuss gas mileage but most of the replies were the older body style. And the numbers were not very impressive.

So my question is, just what kind of actual gas mileage can a guy expect from this particular truck? I have been told to expect 16-17, is that a realistic number? I am hoping for better, to tell you the truth, but I imagine it isn't going to happen. I'm not looking for your best, I am looking for an actual average you get driving these things down the road empty.

XLT 160" wheelbase 4X4

I appreciate any and all replies. Thanks.

Around town ~14mpg. Highway 70mph or less ~17mpg. You didn't state 2wd or 4wd and which body style.

Assuming you keep your truck stock for tires/height;
Hand calculated tank fill up mpg:
expect 11-12 mpg in town only
expect 12-14 mixed depending how much town and rural hwy
expect 14-16 hwy driving
Sure, your read out will show maybe a little higher on the hwy but as soon as you pull off the hwy the mpg will take a hit.

I average 11.5- 12 in my current and I averaged 10-11 in my last 2016 6.2 3.73 truck. I do mostly town with a little hilly back roads.

The best thing you can do with your truck for mpg's is run a 31.5-32", lighter weight tire, like a Cooper AT3 or Michelin.

There are quite a few mpg threads down in the 6.2 section and a couple regarding the 2017+ trucks. Jump in down there.

Filled mine up this morning on the way to work, dash was showing 12.8mpg, mostly driving around town with one trip to work on that tank, 68 miles round trip, 5 of the off highway. Drove to work and back and the dash was showing 14.1. 6.2, 373s and 4x4. I usually run with the traffic about 10 over the limit. 70-80mph most of the way to work.

my Yukon trip loaded with trailer and gear 17 F350 4x4 short bed crew cab 6.2 gas got 32km/100km and average in town everyday i get 450 km to 130 liters i believe the tank size is. they get awesome mileage when they break down and stay at the dealer for 8 weeks haha
I had a 2014 6.7 F350 tank was 98 liters could easy get 700 km a tank of diesel.
really depends on how one drives them.

Mostly city and around town, Im getting 15-16mpg. Pretty consistent. I have just over 15,000 miles total on my 2017 F250 6.2L CCSB LARIAT with 3.73 and 20 wheel. I drove a trip from Colorado to Canada this summer and improved to about 17-18 on interstate driving 75-80mph.

I'm assuming your truck is a 2wd? That's seems to make a big difference in these trucks. Mine is a 4wd CCSB f250 6.2 with 3.73's and I'm getting about 12-13 city.
I may be able to stretch out 14/15 hwy if I'm lucky.

I'm afraid with your particular truck you will never see 16-17 mpg's. My truck is very similar to what you've described. I have put 13k miles on my truck and I've never had a full tank over 15 mpg's. I normally average 12-13 mpg's unloaded city driving.

I have seen some of the 2wd guys reporting 17+ mpg's but can't imagine a 4x4 getting those results.

I have 3600 miles on my 17 F250 4x4 6.2 w/ 3.73. 10% of those miles were towing my boat or travel trailer, 5% on the freeway and the rest is mixed town/country driving. I'm at 11.5 for the life of the truck. I'm a moderate driver, not fast nor slow. All of that towing is in the hills and mountains.

The 2/3 of a take that was solely freeway, 70 with the cruise control, 16mpg

I am starting to think the same thing which is unfortunate. I am buying the truck to pull a bumper camper but in our climate that is a short time of the year, and I end up using my truck for lots of no-pull miles too. I know guys with the 4X4 6.2L GM's with the max tow package that consistently break 20 MPG, but that is a half ton pickup. But that GM engine also has 460 lbs of torque, which is no slouch by any means. I hear those stories and wish our Fords could get similar mileages, but it is a lot more truck to push down the road too, I fully understand that. It isn't a fair truck comparison either, so don't bash me for bringing it up. I can live with 14 MPG with the gas prices we have today, but when it hits $4.00 which it will again sometime it will suck. There is no other way of looking at it. I need to look at it like Barbero, and relate it to smiles per gallon.

On my 4th tank and averaging 13.8 mpg with mixed driving. Still under the 1k break-in. All stock F350 4x4 with 3.73. For a 6.2L I am pleased even though we switched to winter blend which hurts the mileage a little. All hand calculated -- Guess-O-meter showing .5 to .7 mpg increase.
