Just looked at the specs I bet u get great fuel mileage it's amazing that the 6.7 has 800 lbs of torque, what did u pull ur 5er with before, with the 6.7 you'll have to check the mirrors to make sure it's still back there lol

...When driving the truck home from the dealer..i tried the mpg average display..doing 52 mph on a country road. it read...26-28 mpg of course we were not towing any thing...thats coming up soon..and what i had before was a 2010 F 150 supercab..5.4..3.55 rearend..4x2..with 2 added springs ..it pulled nice..but ..after talking with others ...It would be better to have the Super Duty with the diesel..

I have the same truck, except a 2011. F250, CC, diesel, longbed, RWD, It has been
a great truck so far. I pull a 9,950 lbs 5er with it and going 65 MPH or a little less and get about 12.5 MPG. I don't do much HWY driving when not towing, but I get 18.5 MPG. It does pull very nice.

Good chioce......it will most def pull better than the 150!.... I personally like the dpf and def systems on the truck.... they dont have the diesel chatter, no stupid black smoke to clean, and no diesel exhaust smell either!!!!....i do realize im from texas and those are the 'cool' things tho ....lol...mine is even tuned (489 REAR WHEEL HP/898 REAR WHEEL TQ)....on a good day i get 11-12 whether its 9000lbs or 16000lbs....and on a bad day......well i find out where all the diesel stations are....haha...i go through about 2.5 gallons of def (14$from ford) which is about half a tank of def every 7k miles.....so no worries there......
