  1. F150 Ecoboost Chat
    110k miles. Brake booster failed, replaced. Around that time noticed I started plowing through gas. Cleaned k&n and recharged. Changed plugs, carbon build up on plugs and exhaust. Boost is slow/sluggish. Added some chevron techron. MPG is still crap... used to live at around 17-18 around town...
  2. F150 Ecoboost Problems
    New to the site and couldnt find any threads that talked about mileage this bad. Also new to my 2011 f150 ecoboost 3.5l v6 Lariat Screw without any modifications (that I know of) and with a bed cover. Filled up on Thursday night, drove about 4 hours of city, and about an hour highway total over...
  3. 2nd Gen F150 Ecoboost
    This FAQ thread is directed at the 2nd Generation Ecoboost (2015+). Although quite a bit has changed between the 1st and 2nd Gen motors, most of the same issues/questions/concerns still pop up. Most of the information between this thread as well as the thread for the Gen 1 trucks are reciprocal...

  5. F150 Ecoboost Performance
    So I have a 2011 F150 Ecoboost, and I have a few questions about it regarding MPG. I want to preface this post by saying I understand a lot of it depends on driving conditions and the driver. 1. What is the best aftermarket intake? Is it necessary to have the vehicle tuned after putting...
  6. F150 Ecoboost Problems
    Hello all, I have a 2013 model f150 ecoboost that I have recently purchased a couple weeks back and had the dreaded miss that is ever so common. I ended up replacing my plugs and boots with Autolite XP5363 (gapped at .030) and Napa brand plug boots because I didn't want to spend the $$ on...
  7. Ford Expedition Ecoboost
    I purchased a 2016 Expedition & overall I'm very pleased. It'll avg between 20-21 mpg on the highway but falls to 17-18 around town. I've had good luck in the past with tuners/programmers increasing mpg, I'm not looking to gain big hp I just want to see better fuel economy. I've been looking at...

    I bought my first truck last week: 2012 F-150, 3.5L EB, 2WD, 3.55 gearing, w/ 71k miles on it. So far I love it, but I'm concerned with the gas mileage I've been getting. Im averaging 14.8 mpg over the 300 miles I've put on it so far. 80% highway miles without towing or hauling anything. As far...

    I took off the air dam several months ago. I noticed no difference. I was looking in to possible mods to get more air to the intercooler, and realized a few things. If you have facts or links to creditable sources, I would love to hear them. If there is anything we can do to get more air to...

    I've heard this mentioned a couple times on past forums but nobody had any details so I'm going to bring it up and hopefully someone could clear this up for me. This my first winter with my 2013 EB and I've never noticed milage get so much worse in the winter as with this truck. . Even the good...

  12. F150 Ecoboost Performance
    Going on a summer roadtrip around labor day. I have a stock intake, exhaust, and intercooler. All I have is an SCT livewire running 5* 91 tune. What would be the best use of my money to increase my MPG? I was thinking either: 1. New intercooler 2. Intake and Exhaust 3. Meth injection I have...
  13. F150 Ecoboost Chat
    I recently purchased a 2012 F150 Lariat Supercrew 4x4 with the 3.5L engine and max tow pkg. I have been driving primarily in town and averaging 11.3 MPG. I towed our 5000# camper once on county roads and averaged 6.6. This doesn't seem right, any ideas or suggestion would be appreciated. Thanks
  14. F150 Ecoboost Problems
    I am considering an Ecoboost F150 or a 5.0 V8. I have read several forums where people have had horrible MPG and turbo problems on Ecoboost, transmission problems and improper driveline angle on the 6.5 foot bed with both trucks. What is the prevalence of these. Is it something I really need to...
  15. 2015 Ford F150 Ecoboost Chat
    Wondered if anyone who has the new F150 with the 3.5 Ecoboost has towing MPG numbers. I have a 30' travel trailer that weighs 5700# dry. Looks like that weight wouldn't be an issue for the truck to pull, but wondered what the MPG might be. I'm really hoping to get better than the 8-9 I was...

    I just took ownership on a used 2011 F150 FX with Max Tow(3.73) with 19,500 miles. Bought from Ford Dealer. Before driving off the lot I reset the MPG trip as I was on a full tank. I Drove it home 205 miles (hwy). I purposely drove very conservatively with coasting and acceleration to maximize...
