I own a 2013 F-150 Limited and since buying new in May have put 32,000 miles on it. I have tried every speed, every trick, cruise no cruise, you name it. AT BEST, 17.5mpg. I have a 3.73 rear end and 4x4 drive. Really fuel hungry and the wind really effects fuel economy.
I have a 2013 Aviator that I tow behind my truck and I get anywhere from 10.5mpg@62mph to 8mpg@70+mph. Big fuel difference in a short speed span, BUT WOW it has power beyond belief. I don't see any reason to buy a diesel as they don't get much better and it's a $7,000 option. I put airbags on it and it really makes a difference in handling and tongue weight capacity.
I have come across several Ford Eco-boost owners who are very happy with their choice of a TV. Also lots of 5.7 Dodge Hemi owners and Chevy Duramax guys who wouldn't dream of trading in their TV's.
There is no 'one size fits all' here, and a TV's suitability depends on its ability to do the job we asked of it.
As for the gas mileage, any and all manufacturers' claims about gas mileage are as about as reliable as the average co-ed's claims about her virginity. Mostly of dubious credibility and subject to a litany of fine print and technicalities.
Therefore, like a car or truck purchase, any guy with common sense finds other reasons to marry them!
The sticker on the window of an eco boost F150 says 16 mpg city. I don't know about you guys but when I buy cars or RV's I do all of my own research and the sales guy is just a tool for me to use. There is nothing that comes out of their mouth that I would use as information to help me decide on a purchase.
