This is the first mileage thread that I think is actually productive. All the others are people whining, I feel like this is actually really helpful, good job OP

Thanks, I'm just tired of trying to comb through the BS to find the actual numbers. I'm hoping this will solve the problem for all of us that are on the fence on trading for/buying an Ecoboost.

P.S. If it good enough, it might get "sticky" status

This past thursday I added a 2" leveling kit and 295/60/20 Nitto Terra Grapplers on my 12 FX4 SCREW Ecoboost. I've only got about 5600 miles on the truck, but for those of you that did the leveling kit with bigger tires how much did you lose on your mpg? In and around town seems i've lost a couple mpg and about 2 mpg on the highway. Just wondering what everyone else was getting with this type of setup. Thanks!

If you're selling a 2010 5.4 for a new EB hoping to save money based on the better MPG, then you are making a mistake. Nothing against the fine EB engine but it would take you many years just to break even on the difference in cost between the two from fuel savings, unless you're driving 50k a year. Calculate the difference in price between the two, it will be at least $10k. That's about 2500 gallons of gas. You could probably fill your 2010 for 2 years with that.

I've only had mine for a week (350 miles) but here's what I see so far.

16-17 driving around home (40-50 mph with some stop and go)
18.4 highway @ 65-70 mph

All stock, 2013 Eco 4X4 with 3.55 rear

My buddy has a 2012 Eco with 3.31 rear and the best he sees is 20 mpg highway.

I think both of our trucks need more miles on them to improve fuel economy.

30k miles a year...ask yourself really hard if you need a half ton truck for what you do. Because you could save a few thousand a year by driving a car.
