I'm kinda surprised folks are pulling 9,000+ trailers with the Eco boost 3.0.

I'll be curious to see how they survive the test of time after 100k or 10 yrs. Still an impressive motor

Why? With the appropriate build you can easily top 2300lb in payload.

When towing mine varies but on average from 18litres/100km to 25/100km depending on driving conditions. Two years ago we traveled to smokies in Tennessee for two weeks and return. I have the F150 fx4 eco-boost, Rick had a new dodge ram lariat 1500, and Charlie had a Chevy 1500 6 litre (we all get along too). I don't know the axel ratings etc. on each.. I will say at each fill-up all were pretty much the same within a few buck each time, but no one of use was always lower. I think the difference is when not towing as long as you lay off the turbo.

I average 17-18 mph with my 2012 ecoboost. I love it. But I am only towing a pop up less than 4k. But my truck is fully loaded with kids and crap. Love how quiet it is and how powerful and quick it is.
