    You are correct, they do. Because of the fuel they use, the maintenance on the truck, and (most importantly) how the driver operates the truck. END OF STORY!

    Just because a truck is "similarly equipped" doesn't mean that it will perform exactly the same.

    For example, my truck is a 2013 XLT SCrew 2WD with 3.31 gears and slightly larger than stock A/T tires. I get about 21.5 on a long highway trip. If you were to take the EXACT same truck and change only the gearing to the 3.73, then the mileage is going to drop to around 19mpg. That's 2.5 mpg just from going from "highway" gears to towing gears.

    That tire size works out to 33.5x 11.2" on an already heavy 20" wheel.

    On a 3.73 truck which is going to get worse highway mileage than say a 3.31 truck.

    Your truck is similar to mine.

    But I am 3.31 gears 33.6" x 12" r 18" tires (KO2 72 lbs ea) . 4" BDS lift.

    You can see my MPG in my signature. Roughly 15.5 MPG lifetime.


    Quit crying and just drive the thing.

    Noone here cares about your mileage.


    You're Canadian obviously as am I.

    We only just started getting summer blend gas back in the tanks within the last week or so....

    Winter blend gas is an automatic 1.5-2 MPG hit.

    Oh and I measure in real US MPG not those stupid Imperial metric mpgs...

    Dude, consider poor OP. Buys a bone stock truck, gets garbage mileage no matter what he does. Comes here and gets the same regurgitated old man rhetoric that it's his driving habits or 2mm larger tires accounting for a 7mpg loss (even though he explicitly stated he drives with an eggshell under his foot) but heaven forbid anyone has any helpful criticism for him.

    It is **** what Ford did with these motors. I feel for guys like OP, to never have an answer and be stuck with a hog that gets 13mpg on the highway, while others chime and boast about their 22mpg...well good for them, but there are lots of us out there scratching our heads and literally paying for it at the pump.

    These people have a right to *****, and to seek help. If you can't help then what the **** are you doing berating people having issues with their rigs. That is what this forum is for.

    I guess you would need to get closer that "similarly equipped trucks". Your FX4 came with the heaviest of everything. Adding heavier unsprung weight via tires (albeit not much larger) would not help. Leveling would not help. Although I have no care in the world what you do with your truck; most of the mods you have done, probably don't help your mileage which seems to be your big concern.

    My rig got 21-22 mpg stock... I lifted it and put bigger tires on it. It now gets 15...


    Stock tires are 31-31.5" these tires are 33.6"...

    Thats 2" not 2mm....

    These engines are all the same up til 2013 when the turbo size was changed...

    None of us drive on the same roads. The same temps, the same tires, with the same fuel, the same anything therefore none of our fuel mileages will ever be similar or the same.


    In my car on fuelly. Com I have the best 2009 Dodge caliber AVG fuel mileage by 2 MPG and beat the average by 5 MPG... Must be a magical engine.

    I'd be fine with 15mpg average. But getting 14.1mpg on a flat highway burning premium fuel with a level and my rubber (aired properly) is not acceptable hence why I'm here getting everyone's pantaloons in a knot.
