About the same as above. 13 plus in town when not towing

I need to keep the speeds under 60 mph to get the 12 mpg when towing.

I am with all the above 10 maybe a little more towing and 18 freeway not. Love the power in the mountains and a little bit of mpg. However, cost of buying and maintenance is a little higher. So it is a trade off one way or the other.

Have 2008 F250, with 30 foot 5th wheel, driving 55-60 mph I am getting about 14 MPG.
Without 5th wheel up to 20mpg.

I too get about 19 unloaded on the road, 15 pulling my 25' boat, and 10 pulling our 32' TT.

The rule of thumb seems to be keeping the rpm's under 2k or under 68 mph for best mileage.

Always good to "drive it like you stole it" once in a while to ensure the VGT unison ring in the turbo stays free. Need to see around 26 lbs of boost.

No question about more maintenance costs but the peace of mind when driving makes it well worth it.

I have owned the same year of truck as the rest of you folks and was wondering what kind of engine problems you have had? Injectors and head gaskets?
