2014 Ford F-150 Crew EcoBoost Fuel Economy

Just trying to see what roughly others are getting. I have a 2014 Ford F-150 FX4 Crew with EcoBoost. I keep truck and trailer tires at Max PSI and pull a 23IKSS Roo with gear Roo is 5400 Truck basically stock no extra weight just 2-3 ppl and tank of Fuel.

Without trainer I am getting roughly 19-20 MPG combined, pulling I get and avg of 9-10.5

Anyone with an EB what are your ranges I can only seem to get 300-350 per tank pulling my Roo.

You do better than I do without the trailer. I can only net about 17 at best. When I towed my 6500lb pound trailer it was 9 or 10. I am assuming my 4500 pound roo will be the same.

3.55 gears.

Yes I have 3.55 Gears and 16,900K on it, and it is only a year old but did a lot of driving first 6 months now not so much. I was towing a 66# Shasta now I have the 23IKSS Roo and about the same but struggles less up hills with the 1600# savings on TT weight.

I switched to synthetic oil first trip and even towing trans only gets to 201 degrees but thinking of having Ford put the factory tranny cooler in when they do the 2.5" leveling kit in the front in June, might help with the heat etc. I am still running on Pirelli's for now at Max PSI when towing and 35PSI when not

Sounds like great mileage to me. I don't check mine when towing. I know it manhandles my 9K+ trailer whereas a V8 would be screaming on every incline, and that's what matters to me.

I will add: For the life of the truck, I'm showing right at 13mpg (just shy of 25K). I had a 2011 6.7PSD with the same type of driving that showed 14.2 for the 8,000 miles I had it. Since everyone crows about how awesome the mileage is on the new diesels, looks like I'm doing alright.

BTW, raising the truck will hurt fuel economy.

I think your tranny temp sounds pretty good if it is only climbing to 201 degrees.

I am pretty happy with MPG considering a diesel wouldn't do much better with my Roo. I also have the 36 Gallon tank, but I don't plan on lifting the truck just putting in the Leveling kit to even the front with the back.

Also replacing the Pirelli's with BFG KO2's LT275/55/20 10 Ply much bette than these 6 ply tires as they are very soft, wearing already on the ends and my alignment is right on

Seems pretty typical of any gasser pulling a big box behind it. I have 2012 F150 EB. Did a 5000 mile trip from Chicago through Southwest region ( NM, AZ, CO) pulling a Roo 19. Overall average was 10.5 MPG. Probably 95% towing. Best tank was 12.5 MPG heading south to St Louis. Worse was 6.5 from Tulsa to Amarillo pulling into a steady 20 MPH wind. Pulling through mountains did not effect MPG much. Lost MPG in the way up, gained back on the way down.
