Drove my 2011 to Pittsburgh and back...17.8 MPG

Topped the truck of before getting on the highway and filled it as soon as I got back in town. Ran with the Cruise set for 75 MPH except for some construction near Grove City. All in all, pretty good.

Two weeks prior, I drove the truck home from Rochester with the cruise set to 65 (Won't be doing that again), but the hand calculated mileage was 22.7 for the trip.

In both cases the truck computer was off by .2 mpg. Just turned 2600 miles on the truck yesterday.

3:55 Gears 20" tires, using Ford's antigel and Cetane Boost.

Oh, and this is unloaded, no box cover. Hooking the trailer up tonight to go to boy scout camp, but I doubt two klondike sleds on a 12 foot landscape trailer is going to bug the truck much :)

2011 F250 Superduty CC Dark Blue Pearl Metallic

i hear the new 6.7 is a bit better than the 6.4. My 7.3 was pretty decent before regearing.

"New" 05 no payment, all original 305k and runs like a champ
