Ford F-150 Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 4dr Crew Cab 5.5ft bed turbocharged 365hp 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic 4WD w/low range
Even with a heavy duty grill guard installed, fuel economy averages about 18-19. With a tailwind I've seen 22-23 on the highway.
2012 2dr Regular Cab 6.5ft bed 302-horsepower 3.7L V6
6-speed automatic RWD
Really excellent, considering. Over 18 mpg city hand measured over multiple tanks IF its broken in and uses high test no ethanol.
2011 4dr Crew Cab 5.5ft bed turbocharged 365hp 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
Economically moving a nearly 6000 pound vehicle with 4 wheel drive and 3:73 gears is quite a job for any engine. Even with the aerodynamics of a brick, this little V6 manages anywhere from 16-20 mpg on regular gas.
2010 4dr Extended Cab 6.5ft bed 310-horsepower 5.4L V8
6-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
I know this isnt anything impressive compared to some vehicles these days, but I am overall impressed with the fuel economy Im getting from the 5.4L V8. I usually average about 17.5 MPG, not bad at all for a big V8. I personally expected much worse MPG.
2010 4dr Crew Cab 5.5ft bed 292-horsepower 4.6L V8

Averaging 18-19 in mixed driving and not broken in
2010 4dr Crew Cab 5.5ft bed 310-horsepower 5.4L V8
6-speed automatic RWD
So far, with a light foot and the majority of the miles are on the freeway, my fuel economy is over 19 mpg. Not bad for a big super cab truck with a V8, camper shell, and carpet kit. On long trips I have hit 21.5 mpg. Mostly it's around 17 driving fast, lead foot, and city mileage.
2009 4dr Extended Cab 6.5ft bed 310-horsepower 5.4L V8

Reg unleaded at 60/65 mph across country averaged 21 mpg with 1,200 pound load in it.
2009 4dr Crew Cab 6.5ft bed 310-horsepower 5.4L V8
6-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
Great fuel economy, a lot better then my 2004.
2009 4dr Extended Cab 5.5ft bed 310-horsepower 5.4L V8
6-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
much better fuel economy, getting 17.2 mpg on a new engine
2006 4dr Extended Cab 6.5ft bed 231-horsepower 4.6L V8
4-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
Surprisingly good mileage for a full sized 4x4 truck. I routinely get 15-16 average, and as good as 20+ mpg on extended highway at about 60 mph.

I drive like an old lady and (typical of all posted fuel economy) I cant get the advertised mpg.

15-18 mpg with a v-6. Do I ned to say any more??

14 around town, 17 on a trip

With todays rising gas costs,you really must want to drive this type of truck, as I average 17 miles to 1 IMPERIAL GALLON of gas.

Ford can do the same as GM to improve fuel economy

18MPG for the small v8

Not too bad, but wish it was better than 17 mpg

13 MPG overall and and around 18 on the interstate on a good day.
2004 4dr Extended Cab 6.5ft bed 300-horsepower 5.4L V8
4-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
Yep, the fuel economy sucks, but it's a truck! I average less than 18MPG each tank with no load behind it, and 10-12MPG with my trailer attached.
2004 4dr Extended Cab 6.5ft bed 300-horsepower 5.4L V8

Has a 5.4 liter V8. Love the power, but it guzzles the gas. Takes about $85.00 to fill up and can drive about 300 miles on one tank.

Could be better. Right now getting a nudge over 20mpg each tank, which is somewhat expected but could still be better.
2009 4dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 207-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
2009 4.0L 4x4 with Auto is just HORRIBLE for fuel mileage - all these trucks with the 4.0L are! Although the Ford Ranger has an excellent and proven track record for reliability and the new vehicle pricing was very competitive, I could have purchased a larger more expensive truck with a V8 and more features and by this time I'm sure that I could have broken even if you consider how much the Ranger has cost me in additional fuel costs. Although I'm confident that this little Ranger will last for years, I'm afraid that I will be trading it earlier than I would have wanted to find something that is not such a gas guzzler.

5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
Ford needs to wake up to the cost of gas - All you can get now in a 4x4 is the 4.0L engine - That motor eats gas. Ford I want the option of a 3.0 L and even a 2.3L 4x4
2006 4dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 207-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
With todays gas prices I would have liked to have the option of a smaller motor. The 4.0L can really drink fuel
2004 2dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 207-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
I average anywhere between 16 and 19 mpg, I believe that Ford could achieve alot better fuel economy out of a truck the size of a Ranger that doesnt even have a V8
2003 2dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 207-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
I averaged 15-16mpg in mixed driving during the summer. About 11-12mpg in the winter. On long trips I could get 18-20mpg, but the best I ever got out of it was 23mpg going down the I80 into California.
2002 4dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 207-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
I would always like to get better gas mileage but considering mine is 4WD and has the larger engine, the gas mileage is not that bad. I would not want to give up power to get better gas mileage. I do feel Ford could improve on fuel economy.
2001 2dr Regular Cab 6ft bed 119-horsepower 2.5L I4

V-6 fuel economy in a 4 cyl. No matter what I do it gets 20 mpg. should be better
