    So you have a 2012, lifted 4WD, 6.5' bed, running 3.73 gears on ginormous 20" A/T tires, while trying to do over 70mph on the highway and still question why you're only getting 14.1 mph?
    Are you tuned? Have you ever adjusted your reading to accommodate the bigger tires?

    Ah, I was waiting for this exact comment haha. Yeah it's tuned and the speedo is bang on calibrated. I have local friends read - same roads, climate that can muster 2-5 l/100 km better than me on the highway.

    Elmore I sense you're from the "leave it the way Ford made it" crowd and are against modifying things? Btw, a 285/60/20 is hardly a large tire, stock size on most 3/4 ton trucks.

    No sir, not at all. I have zero issues with modifying vehicles at all. I've had my fair share and would have a field day modding my F150 if I could afford to. LOL
    My only recurring issue (and this isn't directed at you), is the guys that slap an 8" lift, huge 44" mud tires, massive bajillion pound iron cross bumpers with winch, driving 90mph in hilly geographic settings on winter blended fuel and then want to cry that their truck only gets 5mph.

    And BTW, you do realize that an F150 is NOT a 3/4 ton truck, yes? LOL

    You modified the height of your truck, strike one
    You have heavier tires, strike two
    You drive over 70 mph, strike three.

    Go buy a Prius if you are that concerned about your MPG. I can get 28 MPG in my truck highway only...20 MPG combined. Am I *****ing? No, because I bought a truck because I wanted a truck. Is it completely stock? Yes. Would adding different wheels/tires and a level on it hurt MPG? Yes.

    Why exactly are you butthurt over 15mpg? Hardly any vehicle gets the mpg that the damn window sticker says.

    Woah Nelly. I'm concerned because similarly equipped trucks get vastly different mileage, that's a fact. I'm glad you get good mileage. Hope your day gets better pal.

    Window sticker mileage WAS NEVER MEANT TO INFER THAT YOU WOULD GET THAT MILEAGE! And yes I'm yelling! The only thing a window sticker mileage numbers is that vehicle A with a higher mpg rating will get better gas mileage than vehicle B with a lower mpg number under similar conditions.
