Everyone is getting better than mine.4X4 Reg. Cab 8’ bed with tow mirrors and 3.73 rear, only getting around 14mpg around town but it’s been getting better as the miles go up. I still have less than 700 miles on the truck and any highway driving has been in the city where the traffic is either silly fast or stop/go.
On this thread, people have been getting really good mpg from the 5.0:
Yep I have bedcover..I have a Platinum 4x2, which automatically gets me better mpg than most others which are 4x4. Truck has 4500 miles on it now. Over the last 2400 miles, I have averaged 24mpg, hand calculated. This includes a couple of long trips on the interstate at 70mph, with some 65mph when required. My usage involves very little city traffic. 3.15 gear, with a tonneau cover which might also help mpg at speed. Regular fuel.
I'm getting exactly same mpg as I was. From day one.Bed cover makes a BIG difference. That bed back there is like pulling a parachute.
