Impressive! Even as an automatic it should be able to hit 35 MPG with hypermiling and no mods, which means that 40 MPG in a full sized pickup truck is in all likelihood possible with ecomodding, especially if it's available as a manual!

Someone needs to get one, put an aeroshell on it, and test it for us.

Big improvement over the 2008 ford diesels that people reported getting 10 to 12mpg highway.

How much with $1,000 mud tires?

I never averaged 30 MPG hypermiling my Forester, but of course those have become more efficient over the years.

I remember the '05-'11 Brazilian F-250 regular-cab with a 203hp Cummins ISB3.9 and a 5-speed manual transmission could get 30 MPG around 50 MPH (and that was the 4WD), but considering the advances in aerodynamic and weight savings in this F-150 (plus the engine is nearly a quarter smaller in displacement) it's still quite impressive that it manages to do so with an automatic.

A contributor on Dodge diesel and Airstream boards (VernDiesel) has covered over 400,000 miles in his EcoDiesel. Averages 28-30/mpg at 65. Above 20 at 80-mph. And the same as I see with my CTD & 35’ Silver Streak: 14-16/mpg pulling Airstream trailers (he does dealer deliveries outbound from near that plant, and backhauls as available).

It wasn't a diesel...and probably wasn't an Ecoboost engine either, I'm guessing? Lots of things JK
