Handles the load and pulls it extremely well. Mileage is the worst of the big 3. I can hook on to my 12’ tandem axles and throw my side by side on the back and still barely get 11 mpg. Or I can hook up my 24’ lowboy and load it down and get 10-10.5. With the 21K load I barely saw 6.5, but that was mostly due to the large wind sail and not so much the weight.

My doors rattled something fierce on my 2017 F250 Super Duty. I tried adjusting the strike plate/latches. In the end, I used some rubber tape and lots of lithium grease. Now they are tight and quiet. I hate rattles.....

Seems like Ford has been the worst in Mileage in the diesels forever. I wonder why this is the case? For the record I am a Ford guy so I am not trying to start a bunch of mess.

Stock was 17-18 highway, and 13-14 town. Then I put it on 37s and dropped to 11.5-13.5 highway, and I wasnít even about to check the in town mileage. Shortly after I deleted it and sit about 15-17 highway, and 13ish town now. So pretty close to stock, but MUCH better performance all the way around unloaded. Loaded it doesnít seem to make any difference at all.

I got a 2019 F250 a couple months ago and this new 6.7 turbo seems to have more power than my 2014 F350 and 2 before that one. I'm getting 17 mpg on daily driving and it jumps to 18 on trips to Houston. Haven't made a road trip yet to see how good the mpg will get on the highway.

14ís has a compound 2 turbo system, going back to a simplistic single is much better!

Congrats on the new truck! I have 2018 F250 and like it so far. I have 19K miles on it so far. The best part of it compared to my 2014 is the bigger fuel tank. It gets the same fuel mileage as my 2014 or maybe a hair better. 18 on the highway.

It is! I cannot wait to get my hands on that truck built exactly to my specs. I don't tow too heavy right now, 10k max. So it just doesn't make sense for me to go diesel. I had a 2004 Cummins that was a beautiful beast, but a modern diesel just isn't practical in my world right now when the gassers do so well these days.

It's gonna be a long wait.

I had a 2011 f-250 KR w 3.73 gears and the 6.2 but I just wasnít impressed at all. Seems like it took everything it had and then some to tow a side by side on a 16 fort trailer. In for hearing how it does and how well you like it!

I'll definitely keep you posted. The current 6.2 received a decent power boost in 2017 with the peak torque coming on about 400 rpm lower in the power band. Add the 4.30 gears to the mix and I'm betting it'll be a great towing rig. More to follow for sure.

Dropped my '18 f250 off the other day for service. Oil/filter, Fuel filters, air filter, rotate 4 tires $400 (ouch). I pulled a load of cattle up to OKC on my 32' and weighed 31K on certified scales. That motor is a beast!

I had a little bit older 6.7 (2012) and I like my 2017 much more than my 2012 Powerstroke and my 2015 duramax
