That is GREAT fuel milage. What kind of speeds are you guys driving? What terrain? Ever tow anything with them 3.0s?

Guys as long as you are happy with your Ford F-150 Diesel Trucks, THAT IS ALL THAT MATTERS!

Keep the information coming, MPGs, Maintenance, Reliablity it’s all good stuff that may help others interested!

Just did my first tow with my classic car so, trailer and car at about 6000 lbs I averaged 24.4 mpg cruising at 70 mph. When just freeway driving at 80 mph I get 34.1 mpg and get 730 miles to the tank...pretty impressive for a pick up I think, now to get that clunky transmission shifts sorted.

I doubt you got 24 mpg towing unless you were going downhill with a tailwind.

This review shows 11.3 mpg towing a 6000 lb boat.

here's another. This time slightly less than 12mpg

I purchased a new loaded King Ranch 2018 diesel. Had no intentions of buying a diesel but the incentives were to good. No it does not have the get up and go like the 5.0 I traded but neither do I. It will do what I need . 24 mpg that is local driving with diesel at 20 cent more then reg unleaded.

We considered a 3.0L diesel when we were looking but the fact the 3.0L uses a timing belt instead of a chain nixed that idea right there. No way was I going to subject myself to having to replace the timing belt at X milage. This might have been acceptable in the '90s but not today.

I agree. That's an unnecessary expensive.
