I wish I were as "lucky" as some of those here; IF I am lucky, I see 18-mpg (downhill with a tailwind) on my FX4 (3.55 rear). Post tune of my truck though, I am elated to see 17 mpg! Before that it was 13 city, 15 highway... on a good day. The EB is a great motor. But after having one in a ford Edge, then an F150... don't' believe the MPG hype. On the other hand and the simple fact the question is asked here, MPG's really shouldn't matter. The ability to do the task at hand is the primary question. And well, the EB can certainly pull like no ones business. Pick the best tool for the job.

I was about 13 city/18 highway with the 3.73 gears. Overall average on the truck over 28k miles was 13.6

Pulling headwind last summer Ottawa to Kincardine I got 9 mpg. The truck just went no matter how wind was being cut. I had a 5.4 and the the Eco. Hands down it is a workshorse.

With the new 2015 F150 EB and 12,200 tow capacity a F250 capacity us getting pretty close.

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.
Being in the Turbos is fun though Amazing the look at stop light when you apply moderate accelerator the Honda with he noisy muffler can not pass you!

you ought to try it in a 3/4 4x4 crew cab diesel and a zo6 pulls up next to you, or any car for that matter.. my truck will take any factory zo6 out to about 100ft. 4 wheel traction really puts the hurt on them
