I just did a 1900 km trip and got 9.86 l/100 (24.2 mpg-us) on the last fill-up (1020km) this was mostly highway driving with 200 km of gravel roads. Almost all on cruise, highway speeds 115km/hr
Do you have a topper on that thing or anything or are you just running with the open bed? I have a cab-height topper and think it cut my mileage a bit. I have 4000 miles on mine and the 2wd with supercab, 3.7L engine, and about the same lifetime mileage (a hair under 20). I'd love to have a 40mpg vehicle but an honest 20 in a full sized giant truck is pretty dang good.

No topper, I do have a rigid tonneau cover. Which interestingly didn't seem to make a darn bit of difference, and I do keep good records.

I sure am glad to hear that....I've been thinking I should have gotten a tonneau cover to boost my mileage. I think the topper dropped it a bit....maybe 1-2mpg? But I didn't have more than a few hundred miles on the truck before getting it so not enough data to know for sure. I'm just super happy it can get over 20mpg on the road.

I decided to go to Australia for the winter and buy something when I get back so not really in the market anymore but I did just get some real good real world experience with a 2012 F150 ecoBoost.

I was sent to Idaho for 3 weeks to help fight the fires there as part of a 20-pack and we were given new rental trucks for the tour. We went to 4 different fires so did a real mix of highway, gravel roads and forest service trails.

5 different drivers, 1300-1800 lbs of people and gear, widely varying road types and gear and no consideration for fuel economy. We were getting between 17 and 18 US-mpg on each fill.

Not phenomenal but pretty respectable in my opinion for the loads and mixed terrain.

We had 3 Fords, one Chevy and one Dodge, all 2012 crew cabs. All did fine except the cab of the dodge was too small for 5 full sized guys on long trips and we cracked the airdam on the Chevy getting over a drainage berm at one of the fires. I did not get any milage info from the other trucks.

Ford's new eco boost motor is almost making their v8 irrelevant, almost lol. But yeah, my dad has a tacoma king cab, and with the rear cover he gets close to 30mpg on long hwy trips (v6)
