Heck if I drove it like a Mustang it would need new tires every other month. It just runs along like a diesel and never misses a beat. Have had a 4.6, and two 5.4 motors one with a 4 speed auto and the other a 6 speed auto and they would slow down on a hill. The Eco just pulls.

I would love to drive one of the current generation Mustangs with this motor combination in it. I think it would put the 5.0 to shame.

You will probably get your wish in 2015. Rumor has it that with the redesign of the Mustang they will also start putting Eco's in them. I'd love to see them keep the 5.0 as well just for us that love the V8 sound in our musclecars.

I'm getting 17 interstate, 14-15 non-city and 10 pulling the 7500 lb TT.

It will most likely be the 4 cylinder EcoBoost. Will be like the old days of the turbo 4.

Heck, I can't resist. We use no vehicle fuel whatsoever. We are at a seasonal site where it is also stored for the winter. I can take my economy car on other trips, but the big thing stays put.
