That's bad***** for a 26gal tank. I get about 550 miles out of a 36gal tank. Average about 15.5mpg due to a lot of city driving and can get 17mpg at 70mph with CC on.

Ok best I've got with 2011 Eco 4x4 with 3:73 is 510 miles on noodly 50 mph country roads. Those 3.7's are awesome

Yeah. Furthest I've dared is 1180. Running a diesel out of fuel can cost a pretty penny if it won't self prime again

Have had some pretty good conditions, the right traffic, the right roads, not in a hurry, and managed to snag this 600 mile tank. Truck has 20,000 miles on it now.

My 5.0L SuperCrew has landed me a 541 mile tank once, on 26.2 Gallons of my 26.4 Gallon tank, lol. I was getting concerned, was a big time mistake by me, but the truck somehow pulled it off.


Rear gears are 3.73's and it's a FX2 with the 20's. Cruise was set at about 60-62mph, but construction and such lowered the average down to about 55mph.


(the actual fill-up was 99.3L if memory serves me right, just a touch worse than estimated)

I just looked through my mileage records. Found twenty or so 500+ mile tanks. 535mi being the highest. Every tank was all hwy and over 20mpg. About half of those were stock, the rest on the original Livernois 93 performance tune.


2011 FX4 Ecoboost super crew 3.73 gears stock 18" wheels.

I have a pic showing 300 miles on trip a. with the gas needle barely over the halfway mark. 26 gallon tank.

If I had continued to cruise at 65 for the 2nd half of the tank I wouldve reached 600+ miles but I had to do 80mph instead which resulted in only a 530 mile tank.
