As always, depends on how you drive it and what it's in... 2 door, supercab, crewcab, raptor between 6 and 13 but MAN does it ride great - better than the proverbial Cadillac !

I've had the 6.2 & the V10 in trucks when working & when they stay running they'll pass everything but a gas station, hook a trailer behind them & you better upgrade to the biggest fuel tank available to make it to the next station.

I have 2012 6.2 with a 4.30 rear axle,I pull a 40' 36 FL Redwood. We travel from Louisville ky to Tampa FL 3 to 4 times a year. I get 8 to 10 mpg towing running 65 to 70 mph and 15 to 17 mpg solo. This is not my every day driver.

You must have gotten one of the exceptional ones.

Reason I asked about them is I was talking with my dealer and he told me to look at something else. He said I wouldn't be happy at all. I asked why-------
he said they are notorious for bad bad fuel mileage. He even stated 6 to 7 mpg was not unusual.

I think we are on different pages I was talking Super Duty and I think you might be talking about the F150. Two different animals, they are programmed differently and the 6.2 Raptor is is programmed differently from them two. I run mid-grade gas,but after the thread about hi-test getting a few more mpgs I'm going to try it. Next weekend we are heading down to Tampa for 2 weeks so I'll run the highest octane available.

Nope, we are on the same page. Super Duty.
