Just did my longest drive yet. Average speed 75 mph/120 kms set on cruise. Ran premium 91 octane. 10.4 L/100 km or 22.6 mpg. Trip 2
5200 km's on the truck and last 2 and a half tanks of fuel, 1 regular and 2 tanks of Premium. Total number is below. Trip 1
Mileage was 21.19 mpg over 2700 km's
Just had an OTA update today and I can't figure out what they updated. When I look on Ford pass, it just says Bug fixes and other updates but does not say what problems they were fixing, or what they were improving.
Has anyone noticed a difference after an update?
Thank Dan M,
I did not know that the 2wd had a 3.55. I do know that they rated it at 25 mpg but I thought it was the lack of 4x4 and less weight that made the difference of 1 mpg between the 4x4 and 4x2.
Thank you for clarifying.

They Were working very hard to maintain traction on hwy on ramps and on Off camber turns. They wanted to float and bounce around...
I agree that the PB shines in the city or speeds below 50 mph.
That being said I also find that there is a 1.5 to 2mpg difference between using Regular gas or 91 octane.
If I do the speed limit on the hwy (65mph) using 87 octane, I averaged 22 mpg. That is over 120 miles.
Same trip using...
Fair enough. From what I understand all Powerboost trucks have 3.73 rear ends. I don't think you can get them with anything else. Correct me if I am incorrect.
My experience is that Eco mode is better in city driving and Normal is better on the Hwy.
The biggest difference between the 2 modes is...
