Yes that is the golden arches, but we just stopped at a HEB gas station, the Mcdonalds is just in the shopping center. My 3 year old would kill for some of their nuggets though!

It ran about 16 stock, this was the first trip with the boat and tune in truck, it pulled it a little easier than before and got a touch better mileage. The worst tank I have gotten (empty) post tune was 27.8 mpg, most have been between 29.5 and 30.5.

Thats pretty dang good thumb. You going to keep redchevy or change your name to whiteram now. I'll admit redchevy sounds like an old beater but whiteram has a mystic sound to it.

The red chevy was my first pickup. I don't think anything will ever take its place. Hand me down from the old man I paid a few 1000 for.

I sold it with 265k on it and 18 years old as a daily driver and regret it every day. It wasn't worth much, but it was worth more to me than what I sold it for. If I still had it the tired old 350 would be swapped for a cummins 4bt.

Besides if I changed my name too many people wouldn't know who to hate lol.

I couldn't throw my 2010 Tundra out of the back of C-130 and get that type of mileage, and it's only got about 80K miles on it. Like the truck, don''t like the gas mileage.

Its been good to me so far, but there are more than a few people who have had some pretty bad luck with them. They are not without their shortcomings, but thankfully I haven't experienced any of them as of yet.

After learning that the f150 diesel will cost about the same as a loaded super duty, I’m thinking about the eco diesel. My Hemi drops to 11 mpg’s when towing my boat.

I am a big fan of the truck and have really enjoyed it, but do yourself a favor and be honest with yourself when you test drive it. Its not going to win any races and if you try to your not going to get good fuel mileage. I think the Ford has a lot going for it but I think they are making it to much of a luxury truck and the price point is way too high, they missed the boat with the fuel economy on the 4x4 model, and I sure would like to see a timing chain instead of a belt.

I do like the new for body style and the payload and towing numbers for it as well as the 10 speed. Will be nice if they don't have a rash of bottom end failures as well.
