I bought my '13 with the highest end of year incentives. Paid $32k out the door. Subtracting the $7500 I got from the private sale of my previous truck, and it was somewhat affordable.

It can be done.

Those claiming you can't are ill-informed. My 2013 F150 had a sticker price of over $44K and I paid right at $32K- over $12K off of sticker. My statement stands and it is accurate- just hurts for some to hear it.

With the new 2015, I think it will be a while before we see big incentives.

Here's a brand new 2015 Lariat at a local dealer with the Ecoboost with a sticker price of $53,545 listed for $45,758. Another $750 off if you use Ford Credit, coming to over $8K off. And this is with only $2250 in rebates. If Ford was offering the ~7500 in rebates they were when I bought my truck, you'd be looking at almost $40K even. And I'd never buy a demo. The dealer drives them around and then wants to still make money on them. No thanks. I've always been able to buy brand new just as cheap.

When we bought it we used 89 octane fuel and my exhaust was alway BLACK and we averaged 16.7 -14.8 L/100 km or 14 mpg - 15.9 mpg and all I did was switch to 91 octane fuel and on hwy. we average 10.2 l/100km or 23 mpg. That is what has been it's diet since and now the exhaust is a light grey. The performance jumped unbelievably. We are about to head out on a cross Canada tour with our 2600 Rockwood Ultalite and the little we have towed the trailer approx. 500 - 600 miles it seems to just flow along effortlessly. Yes, as far as we are concerned Ford hit this right out of the park. Will let you know on what it does at the end of our trip. Prior to this vehicle we had a 2001 Ford E150 w/5.4L and you don't want to know what the fuel milage was pulling our trailer. The van turn in to service stations all on it's own. All I know is that V10 powered motorhome got better MPG than I got with that van.



You all have a great summer

Wow so your saying the higher octane gave you that much of a boost on all Highway? According to those I have spoken to it seems Lower Octane verse Higher Octane yields no difference however I will give it a try on a long trip when not towing

It will be interesting to see your result. I have tried to be "scientific" about measuring 87 vs 91 octane mpg results. I've not been able to discern any difference in mpg. This test was conducted in summer weather; 6 weeks of 91 octane; no difference. Same usage, same speeds, same roads . . .

What I DO notice is ever so slightly lower shift points. Also, when towing, it does a better job of holding 6th gear in the hills. While I haven't been able to find any official information from Ford, "other sources" indicate in the area of 10 extra HP and a very small jump in maximum torque. These aren't numbers you will ever feel "in your butt".

But I do think lower RPM torque is slightly enhanced; probably because the higher octane makes it easier to hold off detonation in the cylinders.

I don't pay too much attention to fuel mileage because I drive a truck and tow a trailer, but the manual does say
"Premium fuel will provide
improved performance and is recommended for severe duty usage such
as trailer tow."

I am going to a campground in Pa late June for a week, I made the same trip with Regular last year and was getting between 10.5-11.5

I will try to run my tank down before the trip and fill up with as much Premium as I can get in the Belly of the Beast all 36 Gallons. I hope for the extra $12 there is some decent difference in Fuel Economy but we shall see

As the manual says, I don't think it is for fuel mileage. You use 91-93 because the engine is working harder under the large load.

Also, the suggestion that is common on the F150ecoboost site is to try to get as close to two tanks of premium to get rid of all the old gas. A lot of those guys are tuned, but remember your 36 gal will likely say it is empty at 6 gal because the fuel pump requires fluid for cooling. That means you are still mixing 1/6 tank of lower grade fuel in a tank of premium.
