check the oil level. I've read that with the 5.0's the Variable Valve timing is affected by low oil levels and the power drops dramatically. Might be the same with the 3.7

One review said that they could squeeze more gas in the tank by filling it slowly. Could be that going full blast is tripping the pump before the tank is full.

Truck is all stock, ECO 2wd.
On the highway it's pretty close.
In the city it's off by ~10%.

We do use the remote start but that can't account for the entire 10%

40 cents a gallon more here, ~$1 to go from E10 87 to 93 non-ethanol.

i have not tried non-ethanol in the Eco, but I did just fill up my mustang and it surely does like non-ethanol better.

In the past, dont know about the new F150, topping off the tank could cause EVAP codes. That is when you keep putting gas in after the pump kicks off on its own.

If you keep a watch on the no fun gauge (Instant MPG), it teaches you drive better for more MPG.

My buddy said he would never have that screen up, it takes all the fun out of driving.
