Has anyone pulled a tt or 5r with the f-150 with the Roush package. I have seen the numbers of about 570 HP and 570 Torque?

If he wants a good truck get a Ram 3500.

Wow. Those last 2 comments sound like something you'd hear from a couple of Junior High boys parroting what their daddy says with absolutely no technical information to back it up.

I had the F150 EB with 3.73s and I didn't get anywhere near what the dealer quoted him for mileage. At best I would get 15-16 highway and 13 city. My EB towing pulled an average of 9.9 over 7k miles of towing. Non towing average of 21k miles was at 13.8 MPG (most of my driving is local city driving as you can surmise).

I also had other issues with the EB that seem to be abnormal so take it for what it is.

Tongue in cheek comments need no technically backing.

I am getting the same with my F150 EB, looking back on the purchase and listening to the dealer, I would have went with the 250 or the 150 HD.

You guys need to stay out of the throttle and quit spooling those turbos! I've got ~15K on mine and have never reset the mileage calculator from day one. Last time I looked it showed 13.6 IIRC. That includes ~2500 towing the camper and probably 7500 or so in trips less than 5 miles and city driving. I had a 6.7PSD (2011 F250, 2wd, 3.31's, XL, 60K mileage at purchase) that I put 6K on while I had it. According to it's DIC I averaged 14.5 with very similar usage to my EB. Therefore, my EB is getting a lifetime average of 1mpg less than my 6.7 did.

My 2013 EB city average 17.5, towing average 350-400 miles a trip (3:53) gears not 3:73 make a difference. Highway average 22-22.5. Towing combined flat to hills combination. 14-15 mpg. I have to agree keep the foot out of spooling the turbos. I know it's hard EB owners!
