Interesting F350 fuel mileage data
I had some business about an hour from home yesterday (58 miles one way). So I took the Ford F-350 and once I cleared town, I set the cruise at 47 mph for about 20 miles. I was on a secondary 2 lane country road, flat ground with really light traffic. Fuel mileage on the lie-o-meter started dropping and settled out at 14.7 mpg. I've noticed this phenomenon before, and just blamed it on the hills where I was at the time. I then bumped the speed up to 60 mph, reset the cruise, and fuel mileage began to creep up peaking at 22.1 mpg. Weird...
Obviously I'm a little dismayed at the crappy low speed mileage, especially since I'm hard pressed to explain it. Very happy with the high speed,...except that I have to question the accuracy of the display.
