-7 to 14, depending on the angle of the right foot.

Likely single digit mpg's as it sucks premium gas like a hungry monster. But who cares when you buy a vehicle like that?

Well you are buying a Rouch for the performance, and it is a well known fact that your right foot is three point six-one times heavier than your left foot. We have to factor in the local police have been alerted as to the delivery and will be out in force to act as a deterrent. Let's see add the Two, multiply by five point five, Do the Heebe Jeebe, wait two minutes divide the result by one point six, do the Houky Pouky (You are responsible for the correct spell ing) add 2.2....... (Continuing with secret private formulas)...


About 7.3 MPG

If you drive it like a sane person, it really won't change much from na. My 20k mile lifetime average is 19.8 and rising. But if you use all 600+ hp, well, it take fuel to make power.

That's actually good to hear, I think keeping my foot out of it will be the challenge. I was pretty good with my SRT10 to stay sane and have aged since then so we'll see. 4wd launches are going to be fun fun fun

Default Why am i getting horrible mpg

I just bought a 2012 f150 stx has 111k on it. 3.7 l non turbo. I drove today 40 miles of straight hwy average speed of 70mph. Reset my mpg so made sure it was nothing but speeds between 60 and 75. I'm only getting 14.6mpg and it seems at 65 to 70 when hitting a tiny incline iy has to jump into passing gear to keep speed. Any ideas?

Wayne, It could be a lot of things but my first guess besides tire pressure would be filters, fuel and air, then possibly spark plugs. The Ford dealer is more expensive than DIY, but they have the diagnostic equipment. Go in for their 'works' oil change for about $40. Besides a oil change and oil filter, they will check out the vehicle. Tell them up front that you notice a lack of power in cruise and poor mileage overall, they will make sure you have the latest computer update, check some sensors air filter and that sort of thing. They will tell you if they find a hiccup, and what it might cost to fix, you can always say 'NO' and go to your favorite auto parts store and DIY then.
