I have a 2011 F250, CC, long bed, RWD, it has an empty weight of 6,570 lbs and a GVWR of 10,000 lbs. I see a pay load of about 3,430 lbs, to which you must add weight of people, hitch and every thing elso you carry in and on the truck. Then the pin weight.

But the big difference is in the way it tows that 5th wheel. I've said it before, but I'll say it again...I'm not a big believer in "night and day difference", but this is about as close as it comes. The 6.7L pulls my 5th wheel so much better than the 6.4L did. It really is a tremendous difference. If you have the opportunity, you would not be disappointed.

Also, keep in mind the 2013's are just about ready to order (I think they have the ordering guide already). No difference in the drivetrain or body design, but the amenities have changed a bit (what comes standard on different trims, etc.).

I'm impressed! My 6.4 gets 11 in town and 13.5 Hwy empty and 8.5 towing. That's quite a difference.

11 in town and 13.5 highway As posted earlier, I'm getting 14 in town and 17 on the highway. I have to admit I get that while driving like an old lady. If I get into the boost hard the mpg's go down. Are you using any kind of Cetane booster?

Your best bet is to weigh your truck. 9 bucks and five minutes and you can stop guessing.

I'm not getting that with my 6.7L! I haven't broken the 12mpg barrier yet (when towing). But in all fairness, I've only had a couple of "good" trips where I could rack up some miles. And the last one back was interrupted by three blowouts on the way back. What a horrible day!
