What is the rear end on this truck, I have 4.10 and it gets about 12.5 to 13.5 empty. Most of my driving is between city and highway. I realy drive highway but when I do I get somewhere between 14-16.5 (I only ever got 16.5 when the truck was brand new....driving it home from the dealer...and back down to pick up the car I used to pick it up in.

Let me add my dad has a 2009 f150 with 3.78 rear and a 4.6 liter and he gets between 19 and 20 mpg.

I have a 2011 F150 Supercab with the 3.7 L. V6. I got that because I don't need heavy towing capacity and I was hoping for somewhat better gas mileage. I am usually pretty good at getting the estimated mileage on vehicles, if it is possible. Rather than 17/23 I am seeing more like 15/19 at best with an overall average of approx. 17. Is anyone getting anything close to the mileage they state for this V6? ronnoc

I am getting the same mpg as you. I am not getting the 17 and 23. I also have the 2011 Supercab with the 3.7.

I just drove 286 miles (all highway) on less than half a tank. With about 20 miles until empty, as per my mileage calculator on my dash.
That's above 20mpg highway. My dash mileage monitor said 22.1, and I'm inclined to believe that isn't far off, because of the distance I traveled without having to fill up. I was astonished that I didn't have to stop to fill up dozens of miles before I did.
Averaged 60-70mph the whole way. Relatively flat (Rt. 95 from Maryland to Connecticut), but it is riddled with toll booths, so room to improve on mileage even.
And mine is the 4x4, Supercab, and the gear ratio is 3.73.
Not making this up. 20++ mpg highway out of a stock 4WD version of the EcoBoost F150.
I'm a bit of a light-foot (I like vehicles with ample power, so I don't always have to rev them). So I'll bet I could get ~24mpg out of a 2WD Ecoboost equipped Fun-50 from Florida to Maine, traffic and weather permitting.
GM says they are not worried about this engine, but they are underestimating its capabilities!

Just finished a 465 mi round trip from Maryland to Virginia with mostly light traffic, mid 70's outside temp, running 65-70mph, A/C off, no load. Averaged 18.1 mpg calculated. Mine has the Goodyear Wrangler off-road tires (like the FX4) and HD tow package. I cleared the trip computer and ran it about 200 miles with the computer reading 19.8 to 20.1 mpg, but I don't go by that for real world numbers. I typically get 10-11 mpg towing a 6,000lb camper that has 80 sq ft of frontal area. Luv this truck!

not a genius but why not fill your tank and drive it at a steady speed then fill again and do the same run at 100 rpm less etc etc etc and it should tell you what to expect (if my logic is right)
