I really appreciate all the info. My numbers were based on hand calculation and not the lie-o-meter although the on-board gauge was close to the mark. I was running around 60-65 on I-10 mostly flat with intermittent hills and an estimated loaded weight of 6+k. The 6.2 gets me better mileage than my F-150 5.4 was giving me. The truck pulls my trailer really well.
The fact you get 9 with 11.5k load makes me pretty happy. Do you feel your truck performs well enough under that load? RPM go into the red much?
I believe I've made the decision to go with the Puma 351THSS. It looks like the one for me. Now to decide which hitch and if I will need to add a chip and programmer. Aux fuel tank anyone?
As for the other good folks who have chimed in, all the info is appreciated. Should I choose or need to upgrade to diesel, I'll have some to think about.
