    For me it's been roughly 14mpg in town and about 19 on the highway cruising 70-75.

    Currently I took delivery on a new Platinum F150 crew which only has 3900 accumulated miles to date. While I ordered the max trailer tow with 373 gears, the fuel economy has been erratic and poor at best delivering only 13.8/14.5 city and 17.9 hwy. I'm seeking anyone with similar power train to determine what mpg they may be getting.

    I have heard that gas mileage gets a good bit better once you get closer to 5000 miles as the motor gets fully broken in. I don't think its anything massive, maybe an extra half MPG or so.

    The 373 gears have to hurt the MPG though

    I'll let Dan chime in, he's done quite a bit of towing with his.

    I have almost the identical package with same gears and max tow package. In fact I could only find one white FX4 within 5 states that had the max tow package! I now have just over 5000 miles and the gas mileage has stayed roughly the same. How fast are you normally cruising on the highway?

    I've got roughly 1,800 miles on the truck and on trip B which i haven’t reset since it rolled off the lot I’m showing 16.2. This is a pretty even mix of highway and city driving. I have noticed if I can keep it between 60-65 instead of my usual 75 the mileage increases dramatically. I'm sure the 3.73's aren’t helping me but I’ll sacrifice a little fuel mileage for the towing advantage they offer.

    EcoBoost Mileage

    I have an Ecoboost with around 7,000 miles on it. I have the max tow package with the 3.73 rear end. I started out getting around 20 on the highway and 15.5 around town. At about 2,500 miles I pulled a 33' - 7,500 lb travel trailer 250 miles and got just over 10 mpg. I've also pulled a 20 ft boat and get about 13.5 mpg. Then after I turned 5,000 miles the mileage dropped to under 18 on the highway and 14 around town. Pulled the same trailer on the exact same route and got 8.2 mpg. Oh and thegood mileage is best mileage both times was at around 65 mph. You go over70 and it really drops. Can't complain about power though, it's exerything they advertised.

    I have a 2011 FX4 Supercab with 18k miles & max tow package. Mileage very dependent on wind & speed. At 55-65 mph; 16 mpg into wind, 19-22 with wind. At 70-75 mph mileage drops 2-3 mpg. Depending on speed & wind 10.5 - 12.5 mpg when towing 4000 lb boat. Not great but equal power and better than the 9 mpg I got towing & 12-13 mpg highway with 2003 6.0L GMC.

    I have a question for anyone that knows. I will get my ecoboost tomorrow for the first time. Has anyone tried super premium gas ? I was told by someone that has one . It really improved the gas mpg. Has anyone else seen the same result?
